The Courier-Mail, (Aug. 6) carries the advice that this newspaper has
installed a camera "to broadcast live images of two peregrine falcons
nesting high above the busy streets of Brisbane".

    "A website ... is expected to come on line late this week, linked to The
Courier-Mail's home page."

    " ... have one egg on a rooftop ledge and are expected to add two or
three more ..."

    "Images will be streamed 24 hours a day, with the infra-red images
broadcast at night."

Parks and Wildlife rangers were on hand to supervise the camera installation
and ensure the falcons were not unduly alarmed ... like one worker "who
backed out of a precarious drilling job after being swooped twice at high
speed by Frodo and his mate."

    "The camera is expected to undergo testing today with live broadcasts
later in the week."
