The cameras will be turned on in early April, right after the conferences are over.
This was posted on the SLC Falcon Facebook page a few weeks ago. Sorry about the bad news but it's good to know our female appears to have a new mate and has been visiting the nest box over the winter. Coverage of the 2014 season will begin in late April ~ see you then.
We have some sad news concerning our own SLC peregrine falcons. The male adult
peregrine falcon (aka Dad) has been laid to rest. Bob, the rehabilitator and the
rescue team went to great lengths to save and enable dad to be used as an
education bird, but foot problems, some of
which were undoubtedly a result of balance difficulties associated with the
dislocated shoulder, proved to make that best hope impossible. We didn't want
him suffering. The good news is we still expect a pair in the box this year. The
female has been spotted downtown with a new male falcon. The cameras will
hopefully come on sometime in April--not too long.
