2021 Red Wing Grain Falcons
« on: January 04, 2021, 10:09:04 AM »

The Red Wing Grain falcons are nesting on top of the Red Wing Grain stackhouse in Red Wing, 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/additional-falcon-cams/.

It's on and we have a pair.  Let me know on these pictures.  I think I did this once before and hadn't shared the album.  I'm trying again.  Nice cam!!!!!

Unbanded female....






She went and sat on the perch and the male came in.  His bands look like Black/Red.

Thanks.  I think one other year I was having trouble and Amy asked if the album I was using for the image codes had been shared.  That did the trick again.  I forgot a started a new one.

"This year’s male is E/30 (black/red) Mac, a 2013 hatch from Dairyland Power Alma. The female is unbanded. We do not know if these are the same adults who nested here last year."

Here we go, this one worked today.  Go to this page and scroll down for the live cam.  But, I rewound all the way to when it was dark out this morning and as of 5 PM haven't seen anyone at home.

I believe it was the female that spent a lot of time sitting in the sun earlier and putzing inside the box.  Don't see anyone now though.

Late morning, probably sometime between 11 AM and noon, they were both in there for a short time....
