I received the following notice from the Peregrine Fund tonight. We have 1 egg in the nest downtown and the camera is up and running, although I did not notice any sound. Maybe later. Again, many thanks to Shawn Carmen for designing this logo. We appreciate your work. There is a hotlink to the Boise Falcon Cam in the sidebar which I will keep active all season. And for now, you can link to the cam From Here. Enjoy!
Welcome to the 2014 FalconCam season! This is the sixth year a webcam has provided you with a front-row seat for watching the daily activities at a nest box in downtown Boise.
We are launching the season with big news – the female Peregrine Falcon laid her first egg today! This is the earliest date for a first egg since the webcam was installed in 2009. The timing is almost two weeks earlier than last year, which also was earlier than ever. Wild birds keep their own schedules.
We appreciate your patience as we continue working on the web page. The video can take up to a minute to load, and the audio is not yet available. You may notice various refinements in the days ahead.
The photo of the falcons at the nest was taken by Bob Young on March 12.
