Peregrine Falcon Nest Cam

I just learned about a cool peregrine falcon nest cam that you can monitor online. It watches a pair of peregrines that are nesting on the 59th story of the Washington Mutual building in downtown Seattle in a nest box provided by the Falcon Research Group (you can also track some tagged peregrines on their migration through this group). They say you may have to wait a while before you see a bird, but it appears to me that they are incubating egg(s) now because a bird has been there every time I've checked. These are a couple of screen captures I took just a little while ago. How cool will it be to see the chicks after they hatch?!
