Great Spirit Bluff falcons are back! We have a new HD nest box camera that has been working well. It is amazing the difference that HD technology makes. We thank A2Z Security Cameras for their help and support!

7/27/15 Bob earned his wings
We honor the the legacy and contribution that Bob made to falcon reintroduction to the Midwest and their ultimate return to the Mississippi Bluffs. This video tells the story of his cliff work and was a special favorite: https://youtu.be/USQs4Bwxa18
The photo below shows him on Great Spirit Bluff. It was one of his very favorites - he loved to be on rope - and is how many of us will remember him. Fly on, friend and mentor. We will never forget you.
