Riverview Tower Falcons
Pets, Animals - Birds
We don't know much about the history of the adult Decorah Bald eagles, but Peregrine falcons have been banded since recovery efforts began in the early 1970s. Gypsy fledged from the Sartell Paper Mill in Stearns county, MN in 2005 - about 68 miles north of here. Frisco, a 2006 hatch from Lock and Dam 1 in Minneapolis, stayed considerably closer to home. The pair has produced a total of 6 young here. Since falcons don't normally nest until they are two years old, we don't know whether or not any of them survived past their first year.
Nest updates and photos will be posted in this channel. We expect falcons here possibly as early as February, and eggs in late April to early March.
