Just as a note, last year's Grand Forks bird is "Marv" and he was paired with Terminator from Brandon.
Marv is the offspring of Annie from West Winnipeg and his mate Miracle in Fargo.

From the Fargo blog on March 17:

Happy St. Patrick's Day!  We wanted to give you a quick update of the season so far:  On 8 March, local bird watchers reported seeing a falcon flying around the Bank of the West building and the nest box.  On 9 March, bird watchers in Grand Forks, ND reported that the male who hatched in Fargo several years ago showed up there at the UND water tower.  This is the bird that successfully paired and nested in Grand Forks last year.  On 10 March, we began the process of setting up our camera in Fargo.  If the falcons are present while we are doing this work, they make their presence known by swooping overhead and screaming loudly.  This did not happen, so we are confident in saying that the bird that was sighted on the 8th was likely the bird who showed up in Grand Forks on the 9th.

We were back on the roof of the Bank of the West today, but we are still experiencing technical difficulties with our camera.  Thankfully the Fargo birds have not arrived, as we were not greeted by the raucous screams of territorial falcons today!!

We will continue to work on our camera feed and as soon as birds arrive we will let you know here on this website and will have the live feed up and running as soon as possible once the birds arrive.

And on March 18:

We may have our first falcon in Fargo!  Audubon Dakota office staff noticed a falcon on the BotW building while sitting in their office in the Black Building on Broadway.  Upon further examination, it appears to be a female.  Once our camera is up and operational, we should easily be able to confirm the identity of the bird.  Stay tuned!

Love hearing this!  :)

A credible birder in North Dakota reported a peregrine flying past the nest box in Fargo yesterday (March 9th). 
No other information than that as of yet.
