Watch here for news about the Peregrine Falcons in Kalamazoo.

Mom and Dad can fly!


The chicks are at the toddler stage.  The larger chicks, especially, can stand on their legs and take wobbly steps.  They are starting to stretch their wings and there are hints of feathers along the edge of the wing.

Rebecca Lays First Eggs of Season and Kewpee is Challenged

Peregrine Falcon & Two Eggs

This past weekend was an exciting time for our Kalamazoo Peregrine Falcons. First, on Saturday night, Rebecca laid her first egg, then drama ensued. On Sunday morning, Rebecca quickly became agitated and very vocal as a second male falcon entered the scene. He came to challenge Kewpee for his territory, and they fought in the area for about 3 to 4 minutes before Kewpee won the battle and the intruder departed.
