2021 Dairyland Power Alma Falcons
« on: January 04, 2021, 10:05:13 AM »

The Dairyland Power Alma falcons are nesting on a catwalk on the 400 foot level of Dairyland Power's Alma plant in Alma, Wisconsin, 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/dairyland-power-falcon-cams/.

She sat FOREVER in that corner outside!
Then she went inside awhile

bcaw is reporting an egg at Alma
They have a pic

Is this the nest where the egg rolls so close to the board we cant see it?

That's too bad, but hope they're happy.  Wonder what happened to Mackey.  I miss Kiwi & Power.

OK had no idea, maybe I can't use my Google Photos for this anymore or I copied the wrong link.  I'll try it again.  Let me know if you can't see this.
