March 11, 2002 -- What could a construction site have to do with the installation of a nest tray for peregrines?  Surprisingly, this work site across the road from Mount Sinai saved the day for us!  Gravel is needed to fill the nest tray to provide the peregrines a substrate in which to dig a shallow scrape.  Unfortunately, we had in error been delivered gravel much larger and coarser than we had requested.  Alan Roy, Mount Sinai Hospital's Project Manager of Building Services, went over to the construction site and was able to persuade one of the workers to fill a bucket with fine gravel (seen in red, above the blue van).
