Behavior


The mother falcon has been seen frequently for hours at a time on her ‘favorite perch’ site. On the bottom ledge of the nesting box, looking North over downtown, where she would often sit ‘guard at night’ while she had chicks inside the box, this year and last year.
As Morley Nelson often told us: “You can tell the identity of a falcon sometimes more by behavior than by physical appearance, since those feathers change color, expand and contract during the changes in temperature and the seasons. All of us are creatures of habit.”
