April 2, 2023 in lawrence peregrines

March 27, 2023 under clear skies, wind SE 5MPH, temp at 50F at 7:45PM. The female was seen moving around inside the nest box and perched on the outer rim of nest box. Continued good signs that the female may be hopefully settling in and getting ready to lay first egg!

March 29, 2023 at 7:03AM under clear skies, wind S at 5MPH, temp at 28F. Both Peregrines were seen moving in and out of nest box, with continued courtship rituals with head bowing along with eechip vocalizations. In this photo the smaller sized male is on the left and the female on the right.

March, 30, 2023 in late afternoon with male moving around inside the nest box showing off his leg bands!

Over the next three days, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, the Peregrines were not observed in the box. This prompted all kinds of questions about if the female may have returned to the Casey Bridge to lay her eggs for the 2023 spring season????
