OK. It’s only mid-February. It’s cold. And lightly snowing. So why am I – are we – searching the skies for the Boise Downtown Peregrine Falcons? San Francisco has already laid two eggs. So why can’t we? It’s only mid-February!! See the snow coming down in the mountains this morning? Only light here in town. Oh, well! Here are some photos from this morning. Hope it gets you ready for another fantastic season. Left-Click any of these photos to see enlarged. And by all means – Keep Looking Up!

 

 

 

 

 

 

New IBeam camera. See the "black speck" on the corner of the building? This is why I went downtown this morning.

Taken from my Android. See the "black speck" (sorry Marge!) on the corner of the Banner Bank Building?
