Peregrine Falcon Watching Over Princeton
Fine Hall, the newer math building not to be confused with Old Fine Hall, has perhaps the finest view of all in Princeton. I've never been up there to confirm, but a Peregrine falcon has, and was spotted twice this weekend by local birders Lee and Melinda Varian.
This photo, with the falcon's favorite ledges circled, was taken a couple years ago by Ben Schweinhart.
Not clear if it has a favorite side of the building to perch on, but these two photos taken by Lee are on the east and south-facing sides.
Though the bird has been spotted thus far between 7:30 and 9:30 in the morning, it may be there other times as well.
