Been trying to access the Fargo cam and finally found a note re technical difficulties on the Audubon's Fargo Falcons news blog.  Seems to have gone down just before the weekend, so hopefully they will be back and running soon.  They are on four eggs which should mean they should start hatching the week after next if I have the dates right.  Goes without saying that it would be nice to have the cam up and operating again before then, but bugs-in-the-system aren't always easy to fix.

If/when someone notices the cam is back up and running, please post a note here - thanks!

It's working now.
The live camera feed is currently only available on the Livestream Website.

Miracle and Annie only have one egg left. Miracle consumed the contents of the third last egg this afternoon. The other two disappeared when the cam was down. :(

I believe the nesting season for these two is over. The last egg was removed this morning by Annie just after 11am. I guess the possibility of a reclutch is there but not going to bank on it.  :(

Miracle is 12 so that may be a contributing factor in what happened to the eggs this year.  They only had one hatch last year.

Might play a part in it, but these two haven't done well overall which is surprising given his young age, their experience and that they are totally unrelated to one another.  Or maybe just a combination of all three.  Too bad though, they are a good pair it seems.

Yes, I think they shut it down now. It was working last evening and Miracle was still laying in the nest even though there were no eggs.  :(

That's too bad, always like watching the parents for a bit afterwards. Particularly when they come back to the nestbox or when they are renewing their pair bond.  Makes me feel more confident that they will bounce back, do well through the rest of the summer and be back the following spring.

Will reach out to some folks I know in Fargo and see if they have any details.  Never have been able to get anyone from the Fargo Audubon group to respond.  Will post anything I hear.
