Yea! They’re Back!


12Mar2014_1_Boise-Falcons_First-Spotting-DowntownYes indeed they are! The Boise downtown Peregrine Falcons are back! They are looking at the nest box (hack box) on the NW corner, 14th floor of the Capital One Building – their “old” nesting spot for several years now. Are they the same ones as last year? I don’t know, but they do have the tendency to return to the same nest area each year. Are they the yearlings from last year? Sorry. I don’t know. Just know and be happy that we have a pair back in downtown Boise to watch. San Francisco and San Jose have 3 eggs each. But for now, just enjoy seeing “our” two birds flying around town creating havoc on the pigeons and sparrows. Enjoy these First of the Season photos I took at 1:18pm this afternoon. I will send copies to the Peregrine Fund and to Bill Bosworth at IDFG. Left-Click to see them enlarged. Keep Looking Up!
