Falcons are back

I had heard that the falcons were back in town but today was the first time that I actually saw them on the cameras (I hadn't been checking in).

Word is that the University of Pittsburgh is going to go ahead with a $4.8 million dollar cleaning and repair project come spring. Normally, such a project would begin at the top and work it's way down but Pitt is going to start at the bottom so as not to disturb the nesting falcons. By the time they get to working near the nest near the top, the new clutch will have fledged and moved out into the world on their own.
