Wondering who we will see here this spring? Bob Walters has several postings this month (latest 1/21/16) on Facebook about seeing a pair of falcons perched on the south side of the Key Bank Tower. I recall last year some confusion as to where that was, and I became curious myself, now that a falcon pair is in the area. So, I made a map showing where the nest box is located versus where the falcons are perching (see green ovals). The falcons are just around the corner from the nest box. It's close, but with them perching on the Key Bank Tower, I wonder if they're planning to nest there instead of the nest box?

:egg19: Thanks Kittenface. It appears the falcons have been perching at Key Bank all winter and now, into spring. I wonder if they are nesting there instead of the nest box. The cam should be back on April 1st. :imbored: I'm anxious to see who is in the box. It would be something if the pigeons were still in there...lol.

Hi Everyone, :dancegirl:

We received a note from someone on the 24th floor of the building I used to work in. He captured some video of a peregrine having dinner. He said it was a coot. This building in about one block from the nest site, 136 E. South Temple if you'd like to look on google maps.

Here is the video



And part of the note they wrote to me:

Yesterday, my colleagues and I at Diversified Insurance Group (located on the 23rd & 24th floors of South Temple Tower) were treated to several visits from the falcons. They left carcasses from an American Coot and a Green-winged Teal on our window ledges (on the east-facing side of the building). Later in the day, one of my colleagues successfully filmed a falcon eating the coot on his window ledge.



BTW, Bob has seen a peregrine pair in other locations including over at the Intermountain Medical Center. There is a nestbox there, but no cameras. I went to the Wildlife Division's webpage yesterday and there were still links to the falcon cams on JSMB but today they are gone :(

I have no further update from Bob about why we don't have cams yet.

:clap: Hi Lizzy, good to see you again. Thank you for the update. We will have to be patient and do the wait and see.
Thanks again.

Hi! Wish I remembered how to embed the video... any ideas? I've edited it twice and still not getting it.

I've been checking this site pretty regularly, as I am anxious to see if the pigeons are still in the nest box. Recent requests for status on their Facebook page have gone unanswered, although one post indicates the cams are coming soon. I agree with Kittenface. We have to be patient, :imbored: but it is difficult this time of the year when the nesting season is well underway. Cams were supposed to be back in April. Just not sure when in April. :egg16: I checked the map and the nest box at Intermountain Medical Center is about 8 miles south of this nest box location. The South Temple Tower where the above video of the peregrine was taken is very close to the Key Bank building where a pair has been seen perching for some time. It sounds like there is a pair in that area, but we just don't know which building they are nesting on.
