First Peregrine Falcon video of 2013

Peregrine Falcon watchers from  last year will remember that we occasionally capture video at the nestbox and share it.  Troy Kroeger captured the following video late last week of the male bringing the female a snack.  The victim appears to be a meadowlark.  The female seems to just want the food and has no desire to socialize.    Hopefully eggs are developing inside the female at this time.  The male will be asked to bring a steady supply of food if events play out as expected.  Enjoy!
