Guess the state should shut down UT from February to May to save this endangered bird.

Or maybe this falcon is just too retarded to know it can't live in the city where it is noisy, and people and cars are all around.    :eusa_angel:
For 2 years the Fake News Media, Obama's FBI, CIA & DOJ, and Swamp dwelling Politicians COLLUDED, Illegally Spied,and LIED to America about POTUS in order to overturn an election

All the while demanding censorship and removal of opposition Conservative "hate speech" voices.  Globalists Hate Freedom

That is cool.  They are found in many cities, too many pigeons to eat.

Peregrines are considered an endangered species success story. A ban on the chemical DDT led them to be removed from the federal endangered species list in 1999. However, Texas Parks & Wildlife notes that Peregrine Falcons continue to have "threatened" status in Texas.

One of the reasons we named our farm for the bird.

I am sure they limit people in the Tower in late winter and early spring when they are mating just like the SE Rim.
temperatures exceed 100 degrees F
minimum 1 gallon water per person/day
no shade, no water

Actually, I work in that building. We've been watching her  around here (sans camera) for a few years. I was watching her last year and talked to the guy who put up the original box; I assume he also put this new one up with the camera. She puts up quite a squawking when the wrong birds crowd her space. Last year a couple of black vultures were nosing around and I was wondering if there was going to be a fight.

Oh, she's never had any offspring, so whether she can flourish in this environment is an unresolved question. THere is a mate she's been hanging around with we're all hoping will be the answer. Wink wink, nudge nudge.
