NE / Lincoln - 2020 / 19K & Alley
« on: April 10, 2009, 17:23 »
State Capitol Building
Lincoln, Nebraska

Webcam project is funded from the Commission's Nebraska Wildlife Conservation Fund with assistance from the Office of the Capitol Commission, the State Building Division, the Nebraska State Patrol and the Nebraska Department of Correctional Services.

Because the resident female (Alley) is a Manitoba-hatched bird, nestsite observations from Lincoln have been moved to the Manitoba Peregrines board

Looks like 19K and Alley are back though can't be positive because the NE folks do like calling them Papa & Mama. 

Here's a link the Lincoln Peregrine Facebook page - https://www.facebook.com/groups/376667965721280/

there are a lot of photos of the birds at the nestbox, they've been on-site all winter.

I believe Alley and 19K have been there all year and not migrated. :)

You are quite right RCF, they have been there all winter.  But given their ages (he's 19 and she's 16), I wasn't going to jump the gun on with they're going to nest until they were well and truly in lets-get-down-to-business mode ... and from some of the photos I've seen recently, they have to get points for commitment and follow-through!  Fingers crossed (knock on wood) they have no interlopers eyeing up their happy home this season.  Downside is that there likely won't be any chicks for them .... not unless Alley has a boyfriend on the side ....  :o

Good and Bad News!  :-\

Alley had been picked up near a highway a few days ago in Lincoln. This is the information on the Peregrine Falcons Lincoln Ne facebook page. I let Tracy know, she will probably let us know if she hears any more information about Alley.

FYI... I got a message from Carri tonight (10-13-20) that said this...
"Hey Jeanne, just keeping you in the loop.  I just heard from Elaine and Mama was picked up off the median on HWY 34 yesterday by volunteer Todd.  She is uninjured as far as we can tell but she is thin.  She spent the night with Elaine and was transported this morning to the raptor center at Elmwood by volunteer Brooke.  Thatís all I know for now."
Carri will keep me updated and I will keep you all updated as well. Please do not try and call and check on her as that floods them with to many calls. Thank you!!!
Mama is is very good hands and will be taken well care of, and they will check her feet too which had been a concern as the right one has a black growth on it.
Thanks to all involved for the great efforts to get Mama the help she needs.
Thanks to Carri for letting us know.
10-13-20.
UPDATE: Carri just let me know Mama wasted no time and chowed down on a quail

Mama update. 10-14-2020.
So far so good. She is eating good. No obvious injuries, they will watch her and let her get her bearings and continue to evaluate her. This is all I know for now.
Please be patient and wait for updates to be posted here as they will let me know when they have any news. Please do not try to call and check on her as this floods them with to many calls.
Thanks for your cooperation.

Thank you for the update on Alley -  I know she hadn't been seen for awhile and I did wonder if something had happened to her.  Glad to know she's being cared for.  :-*

Just to confirm what RCF posted, I have contacted Alley's rehab organization and now it is a waiting game until we hear more.  Could be that I will get an email or it could be that updates are posted on the Lincoln Peregrines' Facebook page.
