Though there is no action yet from the peregrines on camera, it doesn't mean that there isn't anything going on behind the scenes. As falcons have been spotted throughout the city, there's a chance that there are peregrines fighting for this nesting site. Stay tuned to see which pair wins the battle for the Nutrien site.
Seasonal Summary: 2020
The young, unidentified peregrine pair at Nutrien faced struggles and adversity this year. Though they had successfully laid 2 eggs, and despite the tiercel’s great efforts to brood, the eggs were not viable. Though the female won the site in a violent battle with another female peregrine mid-May, the fight was detrimental to her breeding attempt for the year.
Species at Risk
Although the peregrine falcon and the ferruginous hawk get a lot of attention because they are obviously excessively cool, there are many other interesting species that are considered to be Species at Risk. Why not learn about them? For example, the greater sage grouse is a very unique looking upland bird and there are very few left in Alberta.
