UPDATE: Peregrine Falcon nesting at Rumney's Main Cliff

(1/8) > >>

Admin Al:
I got this from Chris Martin regarding the Peregrines at Rumney

================================

Peregrine Falcon nesting at Rumney's Main Cliff

We discovered on Thursday March 31 that Peregrine Falcons have taken up
residence on the Main Cliff.  The entire Main Cliff (from “Space
Shuttle Wall” on the left through “Iron Man Wall” and
“Wendell’s Route,” to “Friendship Tower” on the right)
is temporarily closed to climbing.  Your cooperation is essential if
these birds are to nest successfully.  Peregrines are protected by both
Federal and State laws.  Harassing, pursuing, shooting, killing,
trapping, capturing, or attempting to do so, is illegal.  Formal closure
signs will go up at Rumney on Monday April 4, but climbers should
consider Main Cliff off limits effective immediately.

Nice to see things are back to normal.   ;D

JakeDatc:
add Asylum and Summit to the list.     

jammer:
I see they are spreading!  I wonder how far they will go in a couple more years?

M_Sprague:
I wonder why they keep closing the Asylum. I doubt they would nest there and it is far enough away from the Summit crag that climbers would be unlikely  to disturb them.
