Six pairs of peregrine falcons have eggs in Cleveland nests

Here's a rare change - Good news out of Cuyahoga County!

From the PD Breaking News -

Six pairs of peregrine falcons have eggs in their nests at the Bohn Building, Terminal Tower and the Cleveland Clinic, the Ohio Division of Wildlife just announced.

Eggs also are in nests on the Rhodes State Office Tower in Columbus, the Stuart Power Plant near Aberdeen in Brown County and at the Miami Fort Station Power Plant near the village of Cleves in Hamilton County.

Internet users can follow the progress of peregrine nests at the Ohio Department of Natural Resources Web site,

There are also pairs of peregrine falcons in Akron, Canton, Dayton, Eastlake, Ironton, Lakewood, Lima, Lorain and Youngstown. They will likely have eggs within a month.

The birds are endangered in Ohio. Efforts to increase their numbers began in 1989. Last year, 18 nesting pairs successfully hatched and fledged a record 60 young falcons.
