The folks in Lincoln have confirmed that 19/K is back at the Stat Capitol Building

"I serendipitously caught the male in the nestbox Friday afternoon and snapped a series of screen shots. Fortunately, I was able to decipher the band combination,19/K. This is the same male present since 2003 and the only male Peregrine Falcon to sire offspring at the Capitol.   Thus, the same pair is back again for 2013."

Actually, Alley has only been in Lincoln since 2005.  Angel was with 19/K in 2003 and 2004 - Angel is Princess' sister and Alley's aunt.

No eggs here yet, but it's not from lack of trying. :-*

Alley looks like she is getting ready to lay an egg.

Alley has stayed in the nest this evening, so I'm thinking an egg is imminent.

Whoa, they had snow  :o
650km south of us and they had snow again
... fortunately their snow won't be part of our flooding!!

If Lincoln had snow in the last day or two, guess we should be surprised that the Winnipeg forecast says rain/snow/flurries on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday ... Brandon unfortunately will be enjoying flurries from tomorrow ...

There are two nestboxes on the State Capitol building - RCF's circle is I believe around the one they are using this year.  I think the other box is just to the left around the corner from this box.

In 1998 they removed the nest box for building renovations and replaced it in 2003.  In February 2005 a roof was added to nest box and a camera and monitor installed. I believe they replaced the old nest box in 2009 with the current one. I have been in contact with Joel Jorgensen, the Nongame Bird Program Manager from the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission.  He told me there is only one nest box on the State Capitol building.

Here is a photo of the old nest box.
