ST. LOUIS (KTVI) – From Rebecca Rezaei's roost on the 13th floor she has a birdseye view of the Cardinals home.

And while she's almost within dodging distance of homerun balls from Busch Stadium, it's the peregrine falcons on her balcony she has to keep her eyes on.

“I just wondered why these birds kept sitting on the edge and making noises and stuff,” says Rebecca Rezaei.

Peregrine falcons having babies and nesting on the roof of the 400 point apartment building in downtown is nothing new.

But this season’s brand-new family branched out on a lower balcony.

“The building is 15 stories high and on top we don't have anything just the rooftop and the birds love to have their nest up there but this year has been totally different,” says Raul Adams, Pointe 400 building manager.

Oh the great lengths we go to and the great ladders to help us get there made it all worthwhile to see a new baby.

“I thought oh my gosh this is so exciting I'm going to have Falcons on my little ledge and this will be great,” says Rezaei.  “It has been great for while it's just that were writing for the fledglings to fly away and come back on the roof next time.”

New puppy Oliver Wendell Holmes has been all over the commotion and close call fly-by's.

But with mom and dad nearby letting us know our bird watching should face 700 Clark Avenue might be a little safer.
