Brooklyn and Breezy  :D

Windrider & I would like to announce our 2022 Falcon Cam is up and running.

When we switch to the inner eyeball camera we will have sound
the external front facing camera sound is not an option.

If the URL changes, it will be updated first on the GREATRIVERENERGY site.

March 24
SO MUCH RAIN for days!
This pair has been mating a lot and hanging around

5.45 am  A CROW or blackbird arrives and looks around!
She hops INSIDE and pokes around.
She laid in there an hour ...then ......
6.45 am Here comes our falcons - and - FLASH!  -  OUT goes blackbird!   :D

EGG 1
March 28, 2022
About 11 am -  There's the egg
And I think they discussed if it was a boy or a girl
Falcons know the difference
