The Boise downtown peregrine falcons look pretty well. What appears to be the female – the size looks quite large – was brooding the eyasses today with her body parallel to the opening of the box, thus blocking the air with more surface area facing the wind. She had her wing dropped and touching the gravel to form a seal against the wind. It is windy up there and the windchill is about 55 degrees. All is quiet and calm at the Peregrine House.
At our backyard humming bird feeder, the female Black-chinned hummingbird made an appearance. But not before this House Finch took a drink in the bird bath, and then flew away. The photo to the left is the House Finch leaving the water. Enjoy the photos and Keep Looking Up! Please cast your VOTE above. Thanks! Left-Click the photos to see them enlarged.
