Peregrine Controversy in Idaho

For some reason I can't post directly to the link, but head over to WildBird on the Fly's blog and look for the Monday, Sept 25, 2006 entry. A very odd petition has started about the peregrine falcon being removed from the state quarter design for Idaho.

I went to look at the actual petition and I think there is now official proof that people who live in Idaho are a little touched. Several added comments with their signatures and I really have to wonder about people who think a potato is more exciting than a bird that can go over 200 miles per hour in a dive.
