I work at travelers and the scaffolding project is still underway and its not likely that can be interrupted or stopped for the peregrines This project is very costly but needs to be done to preserve the building architecture. I certainly am not happy about this either since i very much enjoyed the peregrine couple that had nested there before but I don't think that there's much that can be done this year until the restoration project is completed
I thought that they were trying to relocate the nesting structure on top of the plaza building as a replacement site. I will look into that next week and report any news I find out if noteworthy

Yesterday was a heartbreaker, though, as I (while sitting in traffic on the connector) watched one repeatedly diving at a man on the scaffolding right by where their nest box should be. The scaffolding was several stories below the nesting ledge just a few days ago, and suddenly has been raised up above the ledge. I wonder if they had already laid eggs.

To my knowledge, they were unable to nest last year due to renovations, but with the open ledge until a few days ago, my guess is that the pair is back and may have already laid eggs. I am willing to call/lobby, but don't know where to start.
