I just received this from Laura. Anna works in Market Tower.

"I just uploaded 4 pictures Anna captured this morning as she watched Breakfast at Market Tower. Here's her description of what occurred.
We are so lucky to have such a devoted falconhead inside MT and appreciate what the falcons are all about!"

"I got to work at 7am, then walk to the lunch room to get my water and make my oatmeal. Out of the corner of my eye I see feathers a flying; Kinney is on the 23NE MT ledge. He has a whole bird, so I thought to myself I have plenty of time. I run and make my oatmeal, go back and eat my breakfast with Kinney. After 10 minutes of his plucking and me
burning my tongue, he starts calling for his beautiful lover. No, not you Laura. Moments later, Kinney takes off, circles high above the monument, then Kathy swoops by, takes the catch flies high back toward MT NE and lands.

The pictures that are looking at me are the ones from when he is calling for her. The other ones (side view) are from him plucking. The first 4 minutes was only plucking feathers. No food for him. Just a feather frenzy. So fascinating. He would get them all matted, in his beak then shake his head and use his talon to get them out. He ate a few bites of guts, but left the meat for her."

Susan and I [along with several others] traveled downtown to see what we could see. Had both in sight several times both on the perch and just hanging around near the nest box. We all went to the observation deck of the monument and the view there is quite good! I think Susan took pictures that I think she will post later. It was a fun time!

Yes, we had a blast today viewing the Ks. No canoodling viewed, but we saw Kathy having lunch, flying around a bit, then both perched and probably napping. My camera is not very powerful, but anyway, these were taken from the top of the Soldiers and Sailors Monument:

To get perspective, arrow points to the nest box. Blue circle is Kathy. Green circle is Kinney.

A little closer -- hard to see Kathy but she is still on the corner, Kinney below:

How fun for both of you! It was very active in the box this morning, and clearly the breakfast pics show Kinney is getting down to business! Thanks for sharing, and happy to hear it was worth the trip.

Great to see your pictures with your day watching them at their home :!:
Did a streetview last night for myself and can, in away, imagen your adventure.
So different to see it in those proportions (in human/building ones I mean).
Great report!!

And she is still on the perch. Per Laura the earliest she has laid eggs was March 11, a mere 8 days away. Wonder if she will break that record....
