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.
I saw one of these birds in Sugarhouse last week. It (don't know if it was a he or she) was in a tree in front of a house just north of 21st south on 8th east. So cool!
I saw the whole thing happen it was so amazing. I had everyone at work at my computer watching the cutie hatch..
May 22, 2013 Feedings of which I'm aware: 2:05 p.m. (reportedly via the female followed by the male, did he really feed, or was that the bout where he nibbled at the edge of the larger shell and stood over the scrape?), 5:37-5:44 p.m. (via the female, a smaller, brown, with some gray, bird = European starling)?Thanks, as always, to Liz!RW
Bob, I saw a feeding at 2:05 and 4:38. Bert confirmed 4:38 in an email. Both times female did feeding. Did not see who brought the food in.
5/23~I personally have not caught a feed yet this morning. I did see the 3 eggs. No pips showing on the parts you could see.
sorry, forgot to add this:5/22~there was a 7:45 pm feed. Dad brought a chunk of something. Took it in to the scrape as if he was gonna do the feeding. Mom was hot on his tail and took the food and began the feed herself
5/23~feed going on right now..started at 9:16 am..11:16 am eastern (2 hrs difference?...I should know this..)
5/23~just finished a very long feed. Not sure when it started, but I watched for about 15 minutes..so, my viewing was from about 3:20 until now. Mom was blocking but it looked like a joint feed...baby gets a bite, mom gets a bite, baby gets 2, mom gets one!!!Not really seeing pips on the other eggs. One of the eggs has picked up 2 white spots: poop spray, wear and tear, nest "dirt"..not sure what...but, will try and keep an eye on it (mom doesn't share very much). There have been times when areas like that have actually turned into pips...so, we'll see..
5/24: 6:30 am...feed in progress...Mom is blocking, AGAIN
Feeding of one eyas observed this morning (10:52 to <11:07 a.m.) by adult female. A smaller, unknown (as to species) prey item. Will the remaining, three eggs hatch? Two quotations came to mind: 1. "Life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get." Forrest Gump 2. "It ain't over 'til it's over." Yogi Berra RW
5/26~a collapsed egg? Liz, I sent you a vid.
5/26: Much better feed going on right now. Started at 10:25, I think.1 chick, 2 eggs, and 1 mystery shellEyas still appears damp and shouldn't be, so I'm guessing whatever liquid came out of that collapsed egg was sticky. Did anyone see that egg prior to the collapse?
