FLUFFY PORKERS!
June 16, 2019
Do they have itchy feet to fludge?
30 days old

Flopsy & Mopsy
thats only 2 falcon chicks!  lol   8)

If they wish they can run around on the offcam playground
They are on the very top of the bridge (we have to take an elevator to get up there). So they would probably jump onto the roadbed first. There is plenty of boat traffic around there, but not really kayakers. It is big water. There is also a fishing pier.

KEEPAWAY
June 17, 2019
Mom brot dressed prey and one chick grabbed it,
Chick 2 wanted it too
1 ran and mantled over it
2 got pieces
back n forth lol

OK, Looking at my pics
Pink did the grabbing and ate first (her eye area is pink)
Male got it from her at some point (assuming male)
so both ate

Mom has never seen this before - but has likely participated!   8)

THEY ARE IN - ATTACK PARENT! - mode!   :o

Richmond Falcon Cam Kicks Off a New Decade
MARCH 3, 2020


2019 a banded male Peregrine Falcon (24/AU), paired with a female that hatched and was banded in Delaware. The same male has been seen on camera over the past several weeks with a female with no leg bands. A stable pair has yet to establish itself at the site and there has been no breeding since 2018.

Although we are heartened by the reappearance of last year?s male, the bond between him and the new female may still be in flux: approximately one week ago, an observer from a partner agency observed three falcons circling over a nearby downtown building. He noted a male giving chase to a female. This suggests that there may still be competition for a breeding spot on the falcon territory.
