2021 Minnesota Power Clay Boswell Plant
« on: January 04, 2021, 10:02:23 AM »

The Minnesota Power Clay Boswell falcons are nesting on a catwalk on the 200 foot level of Minnesota Power's Clay Boswell plant in Cohasset, Minnesota, next to the Mississippi River. 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/.

I'm not seeing any on the cam today, was that a current egg picture??  You sure that isn't the one at Hibbard looking at the stuff in the nest box?

One day I noted the Redwing cam was dated wrong -
so who knows?
I try to be accurate - but life fools ya!

Have a blessed, peaceful weekend   :)

They had a meeting of the minds about 10:30 and mom spent a lot of time sitting near the edge or on the lip of the nest box off and on today.  She checked out the scrape a few times.
