Marion Nash Reports:

Last year I reported that there was a Falcon nest in the cliffs by our cottage in South Algonquin township. On several occasions this year we have heard and seen the falcons at the same nest. (As we have checked photos of falcons we definitively know that the birds are falcons). Last weekend we had the opportunity to see one of the adults bring back prey and actively tear off pieces and feed 2 fluffy chicks. It was a joy to watch. As the nest is half tucked in on a ledge near the top of the cliff it is very hard to get a clear picture. We have been using binoculars to watch from our boats. We will keep trying to provide a pictures.
