It's spring, which means the city's perigrine falcons are breeding. Watch them on live cams at UIC, South Loop, Evanston and Waukegan -- there's also one near Millennium Park is either badly placed or the falcons aren't there. Follow the Chicago Perigrine Program on Facebook for details. Also, actor Dacey Arashiba has started posting photos on Instagram of the falcons that live on his balcony.
