2021 Minnesota Power Hibbard Plant
« 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/.

At 08:28 I couldn't tell with it back there far in the nest box.  MAYBE it's out further than it was.


At 3:44 I could see both for sure.


At 6:56 they have taken a couple turns watching them.

Fantastic!  They weren't over far enough to see the third one whenever I looked.  :)
