    So glad to hear of this accomplishment for our falcon friends!

    Ben, thank you for this grand news. Mary Wood and I were in your riveting class on ospreys the year before last. We’ll be at Pinelands Short Course again this year. That course, its attendance, and you and the other presenters hearten us in these grim times. It matters so very much that humans (as Mary does healing animals at wildlife center below Lambertville) protect, defend, and even feel strong affection for the wild creatures! Grateful for your work. Carolyn Foote Edelmann, NJWILDBEAUTY Nature Blog

    Thank you, Carolyn! I was invited to present at the Short Course this year, but I had a conflict with another talk…maybe next year!
