First hatch at Lansing! W.C. and M.P. have at least one chick, and I think I see enough eggshell for two chicks to have hatched now.

Two eggs now.  I guess our Stelco won't be coming home this year.  She would be 13 years old this year...not the first time she didn't come home from migration though so hopefully she's just decided to stay south and enjoy the weather..

2010 NESTING SEASON

The falcons at this nest site have been Stelco from Hamilton and her mate, M.P. (for Moores Park). During the winter, a female from Lima, Ohio named W.C. has been spending some time at the nest, as she did the previous winter. M.P. has also been observed at the nest.

So far, Stelco has not returned this year. Time to come home, Stelco!

It seems that Stelco has probably left on migration. Another female has shown up at the nest. She is W.C. from Lima, Ohio, band black/green M/34. She was there last winter, but Stelco returned in the Spring. The resident male, M.P. (stands for Moores Park) is still there, and he and W.C. have been spending time in the nest box. Haven't seen them there yet, but I have seen pics.
