Great Spirit Bluff falcons, Mississippi River 2021
« on: February 17, 2021, 07:00:56 AM »

Feb 16, 2021
We have Cliff cam back!
I wonder what happened with GHO
I saw one of the falcon species in my yard a week ago!
I have NEVER seen a falcon in real life.

Newman returned to Great Spirit Bluff February 18, 2020
So we can look for him now!

Thanks for starting a new thread...was wondering what happened to the old one.

I'm so glad they turned the cam back on....I knew we were getting close to the time. 

The box doesn't look any different...I inquired about turning on the box cam.

The ice fishers are out today, near the GSB dam. I forget which number dam this is. Are they fishing for walleye?

Couple of long distance views of coyotes, no pics, but about the same time as the ice fishers.

The nest box looks the same to me, too.

Great Spirit Bluffs
Here is a copy of my post/gif from February 24th 2020 Newman had returned.  Wondering if anybody has seen him?  I wasn't expecting him back until March for some reason.  I hope Michelle and last years female are doing well and have a good year where ever they might be.     Prayers & good luck to them All.
Anybody know where the 2021 GSB thread posts are from 1/1/2021 to 2/17/21? They appear to be gone or moved in GSB thread. Thanks.

I'm hoping Newman and Michelle find a safer nesting spot. This nest box seems to be a buffet for the owls.

Yay Newman!  Missed that little guy!

Wait...is that Newman?  I don't see the marks on the back of his head.

Raleigh, thanks for the nest box shot with Newman (we think) perched there. Is it possible that there's a plexiglass sheet across the front 2/3 of the box opening? Or is that vertical line just a piece of the end side?

thanks shep!  I didn't read your first post I was too focused on trying to figure out what happened to the thread.  Is this Newman?  Whoever it is knows Newman's favorite branch & also knows that nest.  Prayers for this family for a successful season!

There's no plexiglass....it's the seam between 2 boards.
