Atlanta’s Peregrine Falcon Cam

Did you hear the news about the falcon cam?

Some Falcons can fly on the ground, but only peregrine falcons can soar over Atlanta’s skyline.

  Yes, Tellus Science Museum will have an amazing lecture and hands-on demonstration all about wakeboarding and a fascinating fossil demonstration.  No, they will not have old fossils (like me) riding wakeboards.  Sorry. Some Georgians still believe that spring and warmer temperatures are just around the corner, although older and wiser men and women have […]
