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.

From Falcon Central
I spent 5 hours down at Temple Square with not much activity from kids or parents. One meal was brought in before 8am but it was small and only seemed to feed one or two of the young. Note: I was told that the adults beginning withholding food, partly to urge them to leave the nest but mostly to help them shed their baby weight to levels that help with flight. There were enough volunteers that I came home. It likely there will be no fledges today. I will go back in the morning. Watch the cameras early in the morning for possible first fledge.
