2021 Great River Energy Falcons
« on: January 04, 2021, 10:07:22 AM »

The Great River Energy Elk River falcons are nesting on a 70 foot high pole-mounted nestbox 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/great-river-energy-falcons/.

Above pic Windrider, bcaw


EGG   :)
March 21
4 am  There may be an egg in there
Breezy was in or on box side all night  :)

7 am I cant see an egg inside, but from her behavior, I will be surprised if there's not one
8 am Brook came inside - I hope to see his egg - Queen will need to confirm

Both falcons were on the nice playground all day yesterday

Here's where they live
