Lawrence Peregrines: new male in the box?

March 30, 2018 in In the Nest Box, Peregrine Falcons Eastern Massachusetts, Peregrine Falcons Massachusetts

2018.0330-001Made a mid-morning visit tot he nest box and observed an interaction with two peregrines in the nest box.  At the time it looked like the ongoing pair of peregrines.  But upon closer look, it appears that the new male is in the box.  The bird seen has a silver, federal leg band on its right leg and no left leg band.  This is consistent with the new male, who may have been making a visit of two over the past few days…..stay tuned!  They are engaged in head bowing and vocalizing with each other.
