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.
Cams were up and running before 1:24 p.m. on Sunday, June 3 and I'll continue to investigate why we had the problem. On another note - The kids are between 13 and 15 days old. It may now be possible to see: white body down, feather development on the wings (dark gray primary and secondary sheath development), bare featherless areas between the feather tracts in the spine and shoulder areas and the first to form feathers, the tail feathers. Also, wild guess based on size: 2 females and 1 male, or 1 female and 2 males. We'll have to continue to monitor relative size before we begin to feel certain as to gender. RW
