This morning Senator Jason Wilson's legislative aide glanced into the Senator's office and noticed a set of large eyes peering back at him through the window blinds. The eyes turned out to be a young peregrine falcon from a nest the Ohio Department of Natural Resources maintains on the 40th floor of the Rhodes state office tower.
Senator Wilson's staff contacted ODNR to let wildlife officials know what they have found--and that was a good thing because the falcon had left the nest too early. At five and a half weeks old, the falcon is too young to fly properly.
Thanks to the call from staffers Jason Phillips and Josh Williams, an ODNR representive was able to catch the bird with a net and return it to the Rhodes tower.
