2022 Peregrine Cameras
Seasonal Summary: 2022
The peregrine pair at Nutrien settled in early May and laid three eggs. All the eggs hatched, and the young seemed to be doing well. Unfortunately, all the chicks suddenly died in early July. As of November 2022, the results of the necropsy are yet to be determined.

Great news! Birds have settled in the nest box, and brooding seems to be going well for the lone egg. The peregrines seem to be taking turns protecting the egg from the strong winds and chilly weather.
