Syracuse (WSYR-TV) -- We answered your question last week about a temporary outage on the state tower’s falcon cam, now you want to know more about the falcons themselves.
Alice in Liverpool likes to keep an eye on the falcons atop the state tower building and has noticed a lack of activity as of late.
Our explanation comes from falcon watcher George Merleau. He says the falcons have not laid any eggs this year, nor did she last year. Typically, the eggs are laid the first week of April and they hatch by Mother’s Day. There are a number of reasons why the falcon isn’t reproducing. It could be her age, but we’re not quite sure how old she is and it isn’t uncommon for these birds to hang around the nest – even without eggs to protect. The DEC says it is not giving up hope. The window for producing eggs is narrowing, but it’s still open.Got a question for the Your Stories team? We’ll try to answer it. Call 446-9900 or email YourStories@9WSYR.com.
