Falcon Watch

The past few years I have been following two Peregrine Falcons making their home in Omaha, Nebraska. They roost every spring at the Woodmen Tower. Last spring, Hera, the hen, was badly injured in an arial duel with a rival falcon. She was found on the street and taken to raptor recovery, where she did indeed recover. She was released in the area and quickly reunited with her mate, Zeus.

On March 30th, 2009, Hera laid her first egg. She has since laid two more eggs. If you would like to follow the adventure and witness the hatching of the chicks... see them eventually leave the nest, follow this link to the Falcon Watch blog.
