An exciting evening. At about 1750 MDT we received a call that said, “Something flew into the box and the Mother killed it. Was it another falcon?” Probably not another peregrine. Way too “dangerous” for that. We checked the camera and the female was eating something on the east side of the box. The eyasses were inside and they looked fine. I went downtown and stopped at the area just below the scrape. The wing portion that is pictured here was on the ground. It looks fresh. If, in fact, it is the remains of the “intruder”, it appears to be a pigeon. I then went over to the top floor of the Eastman Parking Garage and took the following photos of the tiercel, who flew in from the east. Robin and Margaret kept watching via the falcon cam in the event I needed help. Even this early, the Falcon Watch Team is diligent and alert. Enjoy and Keep Looking Up!
