The Boise urban female peregrine has been spotted at various places downtown by additional spotters other than Bob and myself all winter. For the past week we have seen a male – possibly the mating tiercel on top of the nesting box and on other North facing window sills of the Cap One Center Building. And I have heard some vocal exchanges. All preliminary courtship stages, perhaps a little earlier than last year. There has been a ‘pseudo-Spring’ interval confusing local flora as well as fauna.
