2022 Peregrine Cameras
Seasonal Summary: 2022
The peregrine pair at Bell Tower started the season strong with four eggs! Three chicks were seen wandering in and out of camera view all of June, and all fledged successfully in early July.
2022-07-09: Bye Bye Bye
The chicks have successfully fledged from the nest. Keep a close eye though as you may see them come and go until they officially migrate south in the fall.
2022-06-22: What's Happening?
Unfortunately, the camera has been accidentally turned away from the nest box. We cannot turn it back as the birds are in fledgling phase, and we don't want to disturb them or put them in danger. Luckily, the birds have been banded and are moving about, so they will come into view from time to time.
2022-06-09: I Like to Move It Move It
The three chicks at Bell Tower are on the move! They are sometimes out of camera range but they are still there. The peregrine pair have a close eye on them, and even shade the chicks from the early morning sun-together! The female is bigger than the male by about a third.
2022-05-31: Three Fluffy Heads
After many attempts to get a glimpse of the new chicks at Bell Tower, we have finally confirmed there are at least 3 chicks. The peregrine pair are doing a fantastic job of caring for their young.
2022-05-24: Another Hatched
And just like that, now there are two eyases at Bell Tower.
2022-05-23: First Born
The first egg has hatched! Which goes to show the peregrine pair at this nest box are doing a great job of lying on the eggs. The others should be along shortly. Stay tuned!
2022-04-28: Falcons Chime in at Bell
Spring has arrived, and so have a peregrine pair...and not only 1 egg, but 4! We are happy to see the pair was able to settle and start brooding this season. Stay tuned to see brooding, hatching, feeding, and fledging. Here's to an exciting season!
