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.
Fist bird out 6:18. Sorry for the quality of this mobile photo.
Oooo there he is! I hope he's going to be okay!
Will the first bird come back to the nesting box after the first flight?
A shout out of appreciation to Liz for keeping us informed and the video clips available. You are wonderful. So thankful to see the first flight.
Thanks for the post. Will the bird return to his or her siblings and parents?
The young never go back to the box, they wouldn't be able to fly that precisely. They will definitely stay near by the grounds where they will try get near each other as much as they can for awhile. --Lix
Liz: These pics are wonderful. I missed seeingthe first flight by about 30 seconds. I was sitting at my computer and finally decided I should get ready for work around 6:17. With mytoothbrush in my mouth I stepped back for another glimpse and whoa- only 3 birds in the nest. Darn.I have watched these wonderful birds since therewere 4 eggs. I feel like I'm their Mom. What awonderful experience this has been.Thanks Liz for your wonderful website.Willi Christensen
