Last year I was thoroughly engrossed in the lives of the house finches and chickadees that decided to nest on my patio. And now I'm completely hooked on watching the Franklin Institute's webcam of the red-tailed hawks who've built a nest on one of their window ledges.
To some people I'm sure that watching birds in a nest is like watching grass grow. But for a person who spent a portion of her Sunday afternoon going through seed catalogs and part of Sunday evening watching Planet Earth., watching the domestic life of two hawks is more fascinating than most reality TV shows.
I guess that I'll never outgrow The Franklin Institute.
