Kestrels Go Goth

June 16, 2009By Paris UpdateWhat's New Potpourri


The many nooks and crannies on the rooftops of Notre Dame Cathedral have made it a favorite nesting place for kestrels (Falco tinnunculus). Members of the Centre Ornithologique Ile-de-France (Corif) will set up an information booth on Square Jean XXIII, open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., on June 20 and 21, and will have long lenses ready to offer passersby a close-up look at the feathered parents and babies.
