News 2011 - Falcons have four new mouths to feed

Falcons have four new mouths to feed
26 May 2011 / Winnipeg Free Press

The city's most popular peregrine falcons have four new mouths to feed.  Princess and Ivy, who live in a wooden nest box on the roof of the Radisson hotel, saw the last of their eggs hatch early Thursday morning. All the babies are doing well, says Tracy Maconachie, coordinator of Manitoba’s Peregrine Falcon Recovery Project.

"Everyone seems fine," says Maconachie. "They’re feeding."

There’s a live-streaming "falcon cam"  that captures every peep coming from the nest. Two years ago, there were over one million pages loads in a single month.

Maconachie says people become addicted to watching the birds' development.

"People get caught up. The birds have personalities. The chicks develop very, very fast. Every day there’s something going on."

Maconachie is posting videos so falcon fans can see what feedings are like.

There is another pair of breeding falcons in Brandon. Their eggs are expected to hatch in early June.
