Title: 2021 Minnesota Power Hibbard Plant
Post by: mrsfalcon on January 04, 2021, 10:03:17 AM
The Minnesota Power Hibbard falcons are nesting on a catwalk on the 200 foot level of Minnesota Power's Clay Boswell plant in Duluth, Minnesota, next to the Duluth Harbor. Feel free to talk about them! We especially appreciate band IDs (band colors are fine if that is all you can get), egg laying times and dates, hatch times and dates, prey observations, and screen caps. If the cam is available, you can watch the falcons on this page: https://www.raptorresource.org/birdcams/minnesota-power-and-light-falcons/ (https://www.raptorresource.org/birdcams/minnesota-power-and-light-falcons/).

noon
This chick is SO GLEAMING SNOWY WHITE
 - The new hatchlings at Omaha are dark GREY
I watched about 5 minutes, Mom stood aside
2 other eggs are hatching, I could watch the movement
Wish it had sound

1 pm  I swear I can hear that chick SCREAM thru the lens!   ;D

sky broke the news after the chick broke the egg

I couldn't help but laugh during the feeding at 6:06 this morning.  She was plucking that bird and just throwing the downy feathers all over.  They were landing all over the little ones and around the little ones until they got to eat more of it.  It would be sitting on top of their heads like feather hats.  Most of the pile you see is what landed or blew all around them.  :D

Falcons became rare due to environmental factors re: eggs.
Are there again factors causing chicks to be unable to get out?
This is not the only nest like this, or the first year

It was a crazy spring.  We've had other years where we were down on hatches and then they do fine again.  Hopefully that's all it is.

Shep I heard back from Amy on this:
"Falcons dying during hatch isn't especially wide spread at our nests, and production is pretty on par so far. We had four falcons/four eggs at GRE, three falcons/four eggs at Redbird (the unhatched egg had never started hatch), and one falcon/four eggs at Bunge (none of the three unhatched eggs started hatch).

If I had to guess, I'd look at the very cold weather in April. If falcons weren't in full incubation, it could have caused early eggs to die. We will see what production looks like through the rest of our sites."

OK this was a first for me.  I've seen eagles bring in fish that are flapping, but first I've seen a peregrine bring in a bird to eat with the wings flapping like crazy.  He had to stand on the wing after he put it down to rip into it.  :(
