Interesting tidbits

I haven't posted much in the last week, but there are a few things out there that have been happening in the blogs and posts that I read. Here are just a few.

From Falconry Today, great news about their growing peregrine population.
Peregrine falcons in New Hampshire produced 29 young this year, more than in any other breeding season during the past half-century.

Terrierman has been on a roll, with posts coming fast and furious. One in particular that caught my eye was some video of birds that use tools to hunt for their dinner. Interesting to watch.

Isaac, over at Another Falconry Blog has been having a blast with his new kestrel. No big game yet, but lots of fun nonetheless. He'll be bringing down elk in no time.
Today we got our first kills!!

Yup, we took multiples our first time out. 6 or 7 in fact (I kinda lost count). Admittedly some were blatant muggings but he did take a couple right out of the air!

Then some cool environmental news from down Louisiana way. Move over fossil fuels, we have grass!

More electricity is already coming from solar and wind sources, so why not from switchgrass?

NRG Energy, a wholesale power generation company that operates in the United States, Australia and Germany, is experimenting with that possibility.

Hat tip to Cool Green Science. Read the rest of the article here.
