Was there ever any news on the 4th one?

No - and that always makes me think the worst

Mama Breezy spent the night perched at home.
I love seeing her

3 am she bagged HUGE prey - pigeon?
I had no idea a falcon hunted at night!

KESTREL!
August 15, 2021  SONday
Mama Breezy was here early

10 am  I saw what I thot was Brook on the roof
BUT IT WAS A KESTREL!  I think male

I used DVR to go back n forth and got 3 images

Prairie Du Chien, Wisconsin has a kestrel cam
They fledged 5 this year - 2021
Could this be a fledgling lookin for a home?

I am very surprsed he flitted around so long without our pair chasing him off

This cam stream isnt smooth, so he appeared on roof - GONE like a fly - POOF -
appeared below - POOF
appeared back on the roof  ;D

Delightful to see!

Mama Breezy was here all night.
She appeared to be awake all night - why?
The 2 of them went inside and renewed their bond.
Sweet

NEW CAM LINK
August 19, 2021   from Elk River QoS
The cam will be less available and turned off at some point soon.
During the next week I will be patching the server and at that point I will not be bringing it back online until next season.

Here's the temporary link:

Breezy perched on box perch all night.
6.30 am she took off upward like a rocket

I am reasonably sure Breezy is contending with an intruder.
Several of her behaviors could indicate this.
Yesterday her breast appeared bloody - yes, could be prey ...
She's been hyper watchful

With no sound, its hard to tell.
The only further clue was the male kestrel I saw here last week.
But a little kestrel is no match for a falcon

Breezy appeared this morning
I dont see her much - she appears then is gone

I saw 2 falcons on cam - but I am not certain if the second was Brooklyn or another.

Do the Elk River falcons migrate?

2 BIRDS
Sept 2, 2021
I usually only see one falcon, Breezy
I've had a sense of a 3rd falcon in the area - maybe...
This morning I saw 2 falcons but I dont know if one was Brooklyn
Has there been a new male?

You see one ( Breezy? ) out on the back perch - and a 2nd inside the box.
#2 kept trying to lure the first inside - but never did - and left

Breezy usuall but not always shows up around 3 pm or so

Sep 8 I saw a different falcon - black band, not blue

I've had the feeling there is a 3rd falcon around Elk River nestbox - but without sound I cant be sure.  Breezy is still there.  Remember she was the offspring of RRP King plant.  I miss King and Sherco

I didnt see any birdy here yesterday.
Today I caught both of them - BRIEFLY.

Later on they were both inside again

bcaw said they migrate so I guess they're feeling the call.

The cameras will be down possibly this week and next, I'm not sure I'll have time to get them back up right away.

Couple things:
1) If you include the date/time of cool pics, I can grab hi-def photos for our collection
2) Hoping to start working on getting the mic working for next year's season   :D
