In a recent post, I mentioned the abundant wildlife Catie and I saw during our trip to Costa Rica, but when you think about it, there’s no shortage of wildlife here in New Rochelle. Just around our house, we’ve seen deer, chipmunks, groundhogs, rabbits, foxes, skunks, raccoons, and squirrels, plus more birds than I can name (including a noisy woodpecker).
But here’s something you don’t see everyday: a nesting pair of peregrine falcons atop the tallest building in New Rochelle: Trump Plaza on Huguenot Street. This article in the Journal News has more information, including some interesting observations from the building’s chief engineer, Vincent La Rocco. It’s a good example of how human beings and nature can coexist in unexpected ways.
