Adults are Active!

February 15, 2012 - Port Colborne - ADM Mill

Doug Garbutt Reports:

Just a note to say that the resident pair of falcons here have not left for the winter (if you want to call it a winter) and are becoming more active. For the most part, they have not spent a whole lot of time in the nest box but the last couple of weeks they have been in it quite alot. They can be seen every day now scraping & exhibiting courtship behaviour. I think the mild weather has got the hormones going.

I also recently discovered that there are a pair of Bald Eagles with a nest on the outskirts of town. I went to the said location and sure enough there they were, nest & all. There were also about 10 or 15 bluebirds hanging around the area. I never knew that they hung around during the winter. Unfortunately I don’t have recent pics of the falcons but I do of the Eagles & Bluebird.
