The falcons have been busy since my last post. Last week they were spending most of their time over at the Flagship Building, but have moved back to the Unum building in the past 6 days or so. Every morning at least one of them has been in the alcove above I am guessing its defending its territory and enjoying the sun.
This morning I was treated to a little aerial show by one of them that I am guessing is the male. The falcon was flying around our City Hall building which made taking photos a challenge from my office window. I did get a rough one that you can see below. From what I have read, male falcons will do these types of aerial shows around their nests to attract and impress their female mate. Many times this happens around the nest area but City Hall is not in the visual vicinity of the Unum Building so I am a little confused by this. Oh well, it was nice to see anyhow and I am looking forward to seeing again
One of them spent at least 3.5 hours over at the Unum Building this morning. I went outside to get lunch at 11:45 AM and there it sat in the corner to the alcove (first picture above). I took a peek at 3:30 and the male was there too. I grabbed my camera and went to a higher location just as they both flew off and onto the BankNorth Building. These falcons sure like banks!! ;o).
Once again they were very high up so taking photos was a challenge. All three photos below are them on the BankNorth Building.
I am so tempted to get a spotting scope for all of this. Yes I know they are pricey and out of my budget, but boy do I want one right about now.
