07 May 2015 – 3 Chicks and 1 Egg


PFund-GraphicWhile watching the falconcam this morning, the tiercel brought in some food when the female was brooding. She left the chicks for an instant. There were 3 chicks and 1 egg clearly visible. That fourth egg should hatch soon. Here are some screen captures from the feeding this morning. Enjoy and Keep Looking Up! There is a link to the Boise Falconcam in the sidebar. Watch the falcons via live feed. And as a Note: It is very noisy around the nest this morning. Voices; scaffold/equipment moving?; and not from street level. Close enough to hear voices. Mom is on constant alert.
