Last year's male at the UB nest is gone, and has been replaced.

Today, Roger saw a third Peregrine at the Central Terminal.

The Buffalo pefa mystery deepens. More on blog...

Our BB @ UB laid her first egg of 2010 last night. 2009 was her first nesting season and she gave us four healthy fledges!

Beautiful falcons. I went on a falcon field trip because the school was short on chaperones. The class visited nesting sites. I think the chaperones walked away with as much of an appreciation for falcons as the children.

Nice photos, as always, Sage. Thank you.

~Peregrine Falcons~-p1060029-1.jpg The Statler Peregrines have four eggs now

~Peregrine Falcons~-p1060052.jpg and this is their home building which is now in bankruptcy

~Peregrine Falcons~-p1050930.jpg This is one of the Pefas at Central Terminal - they have no eggs yet. There was a fight at this nest last week

~Peregrine Falcons~-20100331_07-24-34.jpg Last night there was a fight in the UB nestbox, leaving feathers strewn everywhere and one egg broken

~Peregrine Falcons~-20100331_14-08-39.jpg About 2pm, Yankee returned to the nestbox but I don't know yet if incubation has resumed.

We're all wondering if Smoky survived the earlier fight at the UB nestbox and may have been trying to take over his previous nest at UB or one of the other nestsites.

If you're interested in raptors, esp. the endangered Peregrine falcon, you can follow the saga with me at the blog below. Roger and I have committed to watching the nestsites at the north and south Grand Island bridges and in the Niagara Gorge DAILY and in addition, the other four as often as possible.

Your camera zooms in that close? Amazing!

Too bad about their loss. Hope they hadn't started the incubation yet. Hate to loose the rest due to cold.

Sage, you have brought spring to us.

The central terminal nestbox is my favorite. Do passers by stand beneath it and watch?

I see mom, dad, and the triplets. How adorable-
