I wasnt referring to you attacking me at all. That all was meant towards Gregg. We are good buddy lol. I know exactly what you are saying.

Currently my field work is with peregrine falcons. They nest on one particular bald faced mountain we have here in western nc. They only nest there, to their own demise actually. This is one of the heaviest climbed areas in our state, and the mountain climbers seriously interfere with them. Last nesting season we found many abandoned and aborted chicks. We are doing work in making false nesting sites in more remote areas, and attempting to relocate some birds (which is an extremely difficult task, birds hardly want to stay where you want them to lol) to track the possible success or failure with this in the future. We are also trying to figure out why they only nest there, as opposed to what seems like other perfectly suitable habitat. We did manage to lobby the local governing bodies, and convince them to close the mountain to climbers, and actually get fish and game to enforce it, during the nesting season. So far this has been our greatest accomplishment unfortunately.

Most of my work here in North Carolina before was with Timber Rattlers, and I still help some in that study, but for the most part Im helping birds for the moment.
