2022 Peregrine Cameras
University of Alberta
Seasonal Summary: 2022
After a brief hiatus, the University of Alberta livestream was back this year. And also always, Radisson and Chase did not disappoint our viewers. This year, they had two eggs, which both hatched. The juveniles both fledged successfully at the end of July.
2022-07-20: Fledging the Day Away
The birds are fledging! Unfortunately, one was unsuccessful, but the second one is still around. Here's hoping the best for the remaining bird.
2022-07-09: Awkward Tween Phase
The two "chicks" (they are so big now, can they really be referred to as chicks?) have nearly molted all their greyish, thermal down (or mesoptile feathers) and are being replaced by their fully formed juvenile feathers. They are getting ready to fledge. Stay tuned.
2022-06-10: Hatched 2.0!
The first egg at U of A hatched this morning! And the second one later in the day. Both chicks seem to be feeding well with Radisson and Chase.
2022-05-31: Hatching is Imminent
The eggs at U of A should be hatching very soon?could be within a week! Stay tuned for sightings of the new chicks.
2022-05-24: Nothing New
Radisson and Chase are staying steady brooding their 2 eggs.
2022-04-29: Falcons Return
We are happy to provide the U of A livestream camera this year! And with great news to report. The resident birds, Radisson and Chase, have returned to the nest box. Radisson has been settling at this location since 2008, when she was 2 years old--she will be 16 years old this year! Chase (not banded and therefore we don't know his age) has been with her since 2012. They look to already be brooding 2 eggs. Here's to a great fledging season!

MULTISAR works with many partners to conserve Species at Risk in Alberta’s native grasslands through habitat stewardship. Aside from the ferruginous hawks, there are many other at-risk grasslands species that their work helps to conserve, while also providing a host of benefits to landholders.
