A Good News Story
We in Melbourne have been in strict lockdown for weeks now — the latest one for 2 months and we’re not finished yet. BUT though we’re stuck indoors, we’re also watching the hatching of some peregrine falcon chicks in a nest on a tall building in the very centre of the city — 367 Collins St. There’s a live camera on it all the time.
I only discovered how many other people have also been checking on the mother falcon and eggs when people started talking about it on social media, for instance how, when the earth tremor hit us, the mother peregrine jumped off the nest and peered cautiously around. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QnVER4sofo0
And now all kinds of people are excited about the chicks hatching, which happened a few days ago.
So lovely to have a good news story.
Here’s another little video of them feeding the chicks.
