Two Boise Falcon Chicks Are Feeding


I was lucky to see this. It is windy today, 10 mph constant wind, and the temperature is 62 degrees F. The two young chicks really look good and are vocal. Enjoy this photo! Left-Click the photo to see full size. Keep Looking Up!

At 1115 this morning, I was watching the cam and remembered that earlier, when I got the screen shot above, that I only saw the two chicks eating. I did not see the eggs, only the open one in this photo. I scrolled back on the archive to see if there was an “accident”. There was none. At around 0730 this morning, one viewer wrote that there were two chicks seen and two eggs. Between that time and now, I saw nothing logged that would indicate that something was awry.

Note: As of 1639 this afternoon, the following observations were recorded on the Peregrine Fund Cam,
“May 7 at 4:33:51 PM:

I will have to watch and see if I can capture a photo.
