THE FAMOUS Peregrine Falcons nest each year on the Joseph Smith Memorial Building. 2016 did not see an active nesting pair, so the cameras were turned off. Please check back spring of 2017.

Day Four - Evening Flights
When I arrived back to Falcon Central after work, it was raining pretty steadily. Three of the falcons were visible on the north corners of the JSMB. If you click on this picture it will enlarge for you and you should see Early on the top left corner, then a youngster, probably Lexi, on the bottom left corner of the right building wing. Then an adult above Lexi. Mom brought some dinner to Lexi and the two of them sat on that sharp scallop where Lexi is sitting in this picture.
There have been some thunderous rainstorms for the past two evenings. Early is seen here looking a bit wet.
Because of the rain, there wasn't much flying. The kids flew between wings of the building a bit and parents could be seen on various parts of the temple. Here, is one on Moroni's trumpet.
