The exterior renovation of the tallest building in Ohio's capital city has naturalists hoping peregrine falcons will find a new, temporary roost.

A nest box atop the 41-story Rhodes Tower state office building in downtown Columbus has been moved around the corner to another government office building.

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources says it's hopeful the birds will join other peregrine falcons at that building but says there's no guarantee.
