I hope you're following the progress of Clara and Esteban Colbert's four-chick peregrine falcon brood on the roof of San Jose City Hall this year:


Banding the babies is scheduled for 8am PDT Friday 5/15, at which time their genders will be determined.

Although I was initially expecting just another F22 video, this one easily tops that. I really liked the navigation through the trees at speed. If only the F22 could do THAT!

Yeah, the goshawk through those little teeny gaps is fun, but that looping barrel roll maneuver that allows the bird to keep his eye on the target while going from level flight into the dive without pulling negative Gs is pretty cool too.

I was expecting something xkcd and dinosaur related.
