Falconcam in Racine, Wisconsin

by Greg Mayer

For some years now,  peregrine falcons (Falco peregrinus) have been breeding on the Racine County, Wisconsin, Court House.

There was no one home when I grabbed this still, but you can see the bones of their prey scattered about the floor of the nest. Check the Falconcam for live action. The Racine County Courthouse is a great Art Deco-style building built in the 1930s and designed by the Chicago firm of Holabird and Root, and, along with the numerous buildings in the area by Frank Lloyd Wright and his school, is a must see for an architectural visit.

    Interesting links–thanks! My cousin’s family lives in Wisconsin, so I’ll just put this in the back of my mind for the next time we visit there. 🙂 Having visited the impressive Falling Water in PA, I’d love to visit the Hardy House–love that style of architecture!

    It looks all forlorn and lonesome.
