Article I read yesterday about how they breed peregrine falcons.  I'd heard about this technique but never seen it (watch video).

T40 -- John Dingle told a story at Bob's celebration of life about Bob having John wear the hat.  He told John what to do but I don't think he filled him in on exactly what would happen.  Bob then grabbed the hat and rushed off to inseminate the female.  It was a pretty funny story.

What is considered normal for agricultural practices and harvest? I had no idea migratory bird hunting was regulated like this.

Bald eagle rescued from Erie Canal dies. The article has some thoughtful insight into the ethics of trying to save injured wildlife.

USFWS rarely intervened in projects that could risk endangered species.  :-\
