 clap  DEC has installed a new nestbox at the Dunkirk NPG (?) facing southeast on tallest stack by the walkway.   clap

A female has been hanging around there for quite a while and was present when box was installed. According to the DEC, there is a possibility that the falcon could be Jean, ID'd by Joyce some time ago. Jean and a tiercel had been hanging around the old grain elevators nr Gallgher Beach, small boat harbor, Buffalo waterfront. 2013, after a possible failed nest there, they switched to Holcim, next bldg to the south.

The female laid one egg in the Holcim nestbox but the male did not return, so she abandoned the egg.

If any watchers want to visit, just go to the end of the dock, turn slightly to the left, there it is! (Map on FBPP)

Wonder who her mate will be this spring...  whistle
