09 March 2015 – Boise Falcons


Shawn-Carmen_Falcon_Graphic-TitledA beautiful morning this morning; full sun, cloudless skies and cool. Temperature about 48 at 10:15am on the Eastman Garage. The falcons seem to be on a schedule. For the past three or four times, they arrive at the box at about 10:20am MDT. People have also been asking what camera I use for these photos. I use a Nikon D5000, with a polarizer on a Sigma 150-500mm zoom.
Usually, but not always, I am on the 5th floor of the Eastman Parking Garage. I was lucky enough this morning to capture the tercel (I think) coming in to the box. The female was already there and came in about a minute earlier. Enjoy these photos and remember, to see them enlarged, Left-Click and of the photos. Keep Looking Up!.

The "Empty Nest" at 1020 this morning. Notice  the "leftovers" on the ledge and on top of the box.
