06-26-2018 Juvenile Falcons are Flying Well


The three sisters, Merze, Iris, and Zoe, have been doing well.  They have become strong and confident flyers.  Their parents are passing along the important skills of transferring and carrying food in flight.  As they do this, their strength and coordination increases.  They have the instinct to hunt and soon will be mastering the skills that they need to survive.  They will most likely leave sometime in early to mid-July. They are most active in the early morning and evening and tend to be quiet and sleep mid-day.  They do occasionally go back to the nest area and nap on top of the nest box where they can be seen on the cameras.  Since they are flying on their own, we discontinue the livestream feature, but the live cameras with a 5 second delay are still on 24/7.
