Movie of the Week

Rush right over and watch the summary of this year's breeding season at the peregrine nest in downtown San Francisco. (You'll need Windows Media Viewer.)

George and Gracie's single eyas of the year, Junior, has fledged. If you're in San Francisco, look up now and then and maybe you'll see one of them. Last year, we had two of the year's three graduates sail past us as we stood of a front porch in Bernal Heights.

That is so cool. I haven't had time to watch the whole thing yet, but I love one part where one of the gorgeous wild birds is sort of pacing at a corner of a ledge, and you can see business-suited humans walking on a sidewalk below, kind of out of focus. Neat.

I'm kinda sentimental about that family. It's amazing: the local naturalists have a long history of the lineage, and it reads like a multigenerational soap opera.

It's a hell of a privilege having them around.
