All 4 eggs have now hatched and appear to be healthy. Boh is proving to be a great provider of meals. Mom, Barb is often seen feeding these hungry eyasses. Hopefully all will continue to grow and fledge successfully.

Incubation has begun. Barb now has laid her 3rd egg.

GCG's note reminded me to mention that I try to have the first post in any year be an introductory post - where they birds are, a bit of their history perhaps and if there is a webcam, the URL for the cam.  If you find an out of date URL (webcam, project website, social media, whatever!) - please send me a message so I can go in and update the introductory post.  If you just include it in a post, I could easily miss it - especially when more birds are back and things start to get hopping! 

Thanks for your help with this folks - it will help to keep our links up-to-date!!

 Barb laid her 2nd egg on March 19. That's two eggs laid; hopefully, two more to go!  ;D

This site has welcomed its 1st egg of the season. Barb has been seen hovering. A 2nd perhaps?  ???

100 Light Street (the Transamerica Tower)
Baltimore, Maryland


https://www.chesapeakeconservancy.org/falconcam/   (updated March 2022)

From the Chesapeake Conservancy that hosts the webcam: In 2015, Chesapeake Conservancy launched this peregrine falcon cam on the 33rd floor of the Transamerica building in downtown Baltimore. We welcomed explore.org to the partnership in 2017. This cam features “Boh & Barb,” named in honor of retired U.S. Senator Barbara Mikulski and Baltimore’s favorite “Natty Boh.”  They are descendants of peregrines released by The Peregrine Fund in the 1970s who first made their home on this very ledge. Peregrine’s natural habitat is the side of cliffs, and they incubate their eggs in scrapes, or indentations in sand or gravel.  Many peregrine migrate, but not Boh & Barb due to the plentiful food sources that living in downtown Baltimore provides.  Viewers will see Boh & Barb return from their hunts with food, beautiful landings over the Baltimore skyline, the eggs hatch, and the eyasses develop and fledge.

The Transamerica Tower (colloquially known by its most recent former label, the "Legg Mason Building") it is a 40-storey, 161 m (528 ft) skyscraper completed in 1973 in downtown Baltimore, Maryland at 100 Light Street (MAP) on the city block bounded by South Charles (Maryland Route 139), East Lombard, Light and East Pratt Streets, facing the former "The Basin" of the Helen Delich Bentley Port of Baltimore on the Northwest Branch of the Patapsco River and the newly iconic Inner Harbor downtown business waterfront redevelopment of the 1970s–1980s.

Despite its own changes of owners and names, the former U.S.F. & G. Building remains the tallest building in Baltimore, the tallest building in Maryland, and the tallest building between Philadelphia and Raleigh after the completion of RBC Plaza in 2008.  USF&G remained in the building until the mid-1990s. The building's primary occupant was asset manager Legg Mason, Inc., until 2009. In February 2007, Legg Mason announced that it would be moving to a new skyscraper in the Harbor East southeastern waterfront development, a move that was completed during summer 2009. As of 2010, the "Legg Mason" sign was no longer at the top of the Pratt and Light Streets building.  In November 2011, the building became the headquarters of Transamerica.

Around 1978, a peregrine falcon made its home on a balcony on the building's 33rd floor. Every year since then, a pair of falcons have returned to the building to nest and fledge a set of chicks.
