Peregrine Falcons return to downtown Boise

Peregrine Falcons return to downtown Boise
BOISE, Idaho (KBOI) - The popular "falcon-cam" in downtown Boise is once again seeing activity.

The webcam, which is hosted by the Peregrine Fund, Idaho Department of Fish and Game and Internet provider Fiberpipe, is at a nest box on the 14th floor of One Capital Center in downtown Boise.

The Peregrine Fund says the next box was placed there in 2003 and typically sees nesting every spring.

“The birds are currently in the midst of courtship,” said Connie Stanger, Curator of Birds at The Peregrine Fund’s World Center for Birds of Prey in a press release.

“Webcam followers can expect loud vocalizations as the male brings food to the female. Watch for the birds bowing to each other and scraping out a depression in the gravel at the bottom of the box where the eggs will be laid.”
