"Rooftop romance screens on the Web", is the headline in today's The

Early this morning The Courier-Mail launched the FrodoCam website:

"Frodo" being the name given to the male Peregrine Falcon by the Queensland
Environment Minister, Dean Wells, after the Lord of the Rings character.

The pair of Falcons have nested on the roof of the Admiralty Towers One
building in Brisbane, and The Courier-Mail has installed a camera, which
with infra-red capacity will provide 24-hour coverage of the nest.  One egg
was laid on Monday, and "has quickly been followed by two more."

The Courier-Mail says that Peregrine Falcon chicks generally hatch after a
month-long incubation.

Meanwhile suggestions are invited for a name for Mrs Frodo.
