The Red Deer River Naturalists have teamed up with Telus and Alberta Fish and Wildlife to provide a new nesting box high atop the Telus communications antenna in Highland Green.

The nest box has replaced one that has been the home of a pair of peregrine falcons for the past 10 years.

Members of the club and the public alike are now able to keep a close look at any activity in the nest box as the site will feature a camera inside the box.
