  1. Hello,
    I live in Hillsborough, NJ. There is a patch of woods next to my house where a peregrine falcon lives. I know this because I hear him/her every day. He also comes to my bird feeder fairly often to dine on my Mourning Doves and Blue Jays. A development company is starting to cut these woods down and I am wondering if anything can be done to stop this.

    Your help is appreciated.
