State Capitol - 2013 / 19K & Alley
« on: February 02, 2013, 14:14 »
Nice to see somebody at the nest!!  The falcon looks like it has bands, but you can't see them......too far away and the lighting isn't very good.    :-*

 :-* Thanks for this video, RCF. It feels great to see a falcon so close to Manitoba. Perhaps the groundhog was right on with its prediction of an early spring (weatherwise).

The nest cam is working now and I was able to see that the peregrine has a black/green band on it's left leg which the male 19/K has.  :)   So hopefully someone will be able to read the numbers.

It looks like Alley is back from wherever she was for the winter. I caught the two bonding in the nest this afternoon.

A Peregrine death in the family. :(

We received a call on Friday of a dead Peregrine Falcon found on the roof of the First National Bank tower in Omaha.  The bird was banded with the auxiliary marker (the color band with the letter/number combination in a large font) 98/H.   This particular band combination is familiar; 98/H was banded at the Nebraska State Capitol on 2 June 2009.  The Peregrine was given the name “Niobrara” as a result that year’s name-the-chick contest.

I thought I would put this here.

Hera’s new mate is from Lincoln, Nebraska! And there’s a little twist to his story…

The new male falcon, Mintaka, was originally banded at the State Capital as female – NE Game & Parks said that when there is uncertainty in gender, they err by using the female band size. (This is because females have larger feet.)

Join us in welcoming the new reigning king of downtown Omaha, Mintaka!


You have scroll down the page a little, when you see the falcon you're there!!

One Capitol Peregrine identified

I finally captured a screen shot good enough to confirm the band of the adult female Peregrine Falcon.   The band reads “A” on the upper portion and “Y” on the bottom portion, or in other words, “A/Y”.  Thus, this is Alley, the female from Winnipeg, Manitoba, present since 2005.  …
