I am worried about these eggs, not in a scrape ~ just cement and
moving around a lot.
:nervous:

That doesn't look good. Without a scrape (enough gravel or stones to build one) they may never develop properly. I remember years ago, there was a nest with the same problem and we were all upset about it, maybe maine somewhere? Anyway, they came in and quickly corrected the situation. I was so pleased as it was beyond my expectations.
Has anyone contacted Greg? If not, I will send him an email.
Done! I will let you know what Greg says.

I did not hear from Greg, but if the problem is solved, that is all that matters! :biggrin:

I saw that. I presume Greg is watching too so let's see if it resolves on its own.

I’m looking at Port Washington, and even though an adult is on the eggs I can see a medium sized area under her that has no gravel....

Greg is aware, but l think we will have to wait for banding before a visit to the box. Unfortunately if there is too much interference they could abandon the nest. In natural settings on cliffs there may not be gravel like we have in the man made sites. I am sure everything will be okay.

I was worried about this nest Kitten, she never could get
all the eggs under her/him.

Just tuned in to Port Washington, saw the three eggs in a bare spot, kind of rolled away from each other. Then the cam turned up for a ledge view. Are they looking for the adults,since no one is on the eggs? By the time I turned from posting back to the cam, Brinn was back :loveheart:

Beasley is pebble picking again. I’ve observed this before and I wondered if it contributed to losing the2 eggs.

There is a cam here labeled “Wisconsin Public Service building”. But today there is a different view. Is it the same location and the cam has been turned, or is this a different location?

Here is Greg's March 2020 report regarding the Wisconsin Public Service building nest:

"A nest box was installed at this site in 2019 to replace the previous nest box at the nearby Wisconsin Public Service (WPS) Pulliam Power Plant, which was retired and is being demolished.
Although peregrines have been observed at the site, they have chosen to nest across the river on a ledge at the base of a silo at the nearby Proctor & Gamble mill.
The hope is that in time, the peregrines at the mill will remain at the WPS site and occupy the new nest box that has been provided for them."


I am sorry I haven't gotten the entire repost posted.

:loveheart: Beasley is really jumpy on the eggs this morning... I wonder if he is hearing little peeps, or is it because he is having a hard time keeping the eggs under him?
