Peregrine falcons nesting in Duluth again

Two peregrine falcons are nesting in the nesting box attached to the Greysolon Hotel in downtown Duluth again this year, according to Julie O’Connor of Peregrine Watch. Four eggs are in the nest, O’Connor said, based on a camera in the nest box. Incubation lasts 29 to 33 days, O’Connor said, which puts the hatch date at about May 25-26. Young are expected to fledge, or leave the nest and begin flying, about July 13-15, O’Connor said.

Peregrines have nested at the site for the past several years.
