October 2009


It seems like forever since I’ve been here – maybe it has. All of the falcons are still in the Boise area. The tiercel adult tends to stay around the downtown area – there must be enough resource for him to survive. One of the juveniles stays with him, probably the male. The female adult is “around”, but not as visible as the others. The female juvenile (pictured on the left this past summer) has been spotted in the outlying areas of Boise, usually to the west. It looks like they may stay in the area all winter. It is getting late for a migration, where they usually follow the resource. There has been some cold weather here, in the upper 20’s degree F and some snow, but nothing very serious, which may explain why they stay around the hack box – for protection from the elements. All of the falcons appear to be healthy and well fed. Personally, I think we may see them next year in the downtown area. Cheers and if you see them in Boise or the surrounding area, please let us know.
