Only a few Federal Hill neighbors knew Kenneth Munzert's idiosyncrasies. He owned a silver-blue Bentley but preferred to walk in Baltimore. He sailed on the Queen Mary 2 but collected soap from hotels he visited. He lived in a $1 million house but wrote numerous letters on old fliers. Munzert, who died last year at age 88, had no close family and left his principal asset, his home overlooking the harbor, to an animal charity pledged to protect his German shepherd, Beauregard, a former stray with whom he sometimes slept on the floor.

Thanks to a new union, peregrine falcons eggs are being incubated again high on a ledge of the United States Fidelity & Guaranty building at the Inner Harbor as they have every year since 1984.Only a few weeks ago, the seven-year string of springtime eggs and hatchings of the relatively rare birds seemed likely to be broken.Blythe, the resident female falcon since 1984, disappeared around March 1 and was found dead April 20, apparently having starved after becoming immobilized.But then, about two weeks after Blythe's disappearance, a new female -- who has recently been named Felicity -- appeared.

"Felicity," a name meaning great happiness, seems to fit Baltimore's newest peregrine falcon.The falcon and her mate, Beauregard, are taking turns incubating three eggs in their nest on a 33rd-floor ledge of the United States Fidelity & Guaranty building at the Inner Harbor, a company official said today.The eggs, expected to hatch by about June 6, mean a fresh start in the saga of the city's falcons, which have been raising young on the skyscraper since the late 1970s.Beauregard's last mate, Blythe, was found dead April 20 on the roof of a city office building near the USF&G building.

An eccentric political gadfly who was evicted two weeks ago from her Annapolis apartment is staying at a local hotel after friends, neighbors, legislators and even the governor stepped in to help her find shelter. Louise Beauregard, a perennial candidate for city and county office and a regular presence at the State House, said she was evicted from her Maryland Avenue apartment after her landlord stopped accepting her Section 8 federal assistance voucher. "The gadfly is not flitting around," Beauregard said of herself.

A high-flying, seven-year romance -- one that produced more than two dozen young peregrine falcons on a skyscraper above the Inner Harbor -- has ended.Blythe, a female peregrine who had raised young consistently on a 33rd-floor ledge outside the United States Fidelity and Guaranty Building since 1985, hasn't been seen since March 1, said John Barber, a company official who watches over the birds.She may be dead, Mr. Barber and others fear, since desertion of a mate is almost unheard of among the falcons.

This year's baby Peregrine falcons on the southward-facing window ledge of the 33rd floor of the Legg Mason building wobble and hop back and forth, beaks in rapid motion, tiny tongues wriggling with their shrill cries for food. They're as cute as fluffy alarm clocks. The baby falcons, or eyases, take turns tearing off what they can from a bird's wing left over from a previous meal - probably a pigeon, starling or sparrow - as their mother keeps a silent vigil, extending her wings at the sight of visitors to signal the threat she poses not only to unsuspecting pigeons, but humans who venture too close.
