Shep, Great to see 4 peregrine eggs at a new nest!

The Spartan Stadium location is at Michigan State University in East Lansing, MI.  My college career began there a very long time ago.  Just so you know, we call it Michigan State, to distinguish clearly from the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor.    :)

This is a very sweet pair - reminds me of King plant Xcel who fed each other.
They appear new parents.  A pleasure to watch

Here and a couple other cams, it appears the male says very close, perhaps guarding, as eggs are hatching out.  This male is VERY attentive.  bcaw also thinks its a new pair, but nicely bonded.

Spartan Stadium, Lansing MI
1 boy
2 girls

Banded on May 31. One male black over blue C/83 and
2 females with P over 3-something. (Could be 33 and 34 or 31 ans 32)

Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR) along with Michigan State University  banded the 3 baby Peregrine falcons on top of Spartan Stadium.

The bracelets will help track the falcons as they grow up and the data will be used for research into the species.
 mom and dad weren’t too happy about it all, but can now rest easy. The two females and one male were placed back into their nest shortly after being banded.

Awesome to see the peregrine chicks banded on May 31 at MSU Spartan Stadium nest box.  Pics captured from the News video.  Thanks for posting the notice, Shep!

Is there a live cam for the MSU location? Link?
