Is spring on the way? A flock of robins visited MVC executive director Tim Jacobson on Sunday. It is unknown if it's a group of overwintering city birds or ones that have migrated up along with warmer temperatures.
Tim has continued to see a peregrine falcon in downtown La Crosse throughout the winter--a bird that decided not to migrate. On Friday, he saw the peregrine repeatedly stoop (dive) on a flock of pigeons in what appeared to be a half-hearted attempt to catch one. There is an endless supply of food for the peregrine here.
