Peregrines at Bremer and Wells Fargo
The first year nesting was attempted at Bremer was1988, and since then a total or 63 young have been produced. The male is again Sota b/r 8/*E, and the female is Jill b/g 50/B. Jill is a 2002 hatch from Castle Rock inTrempealeau County, Wisconsin. Sota is a 1994 hatch from the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN.
He has been at this site since at least 03/18/98; he lacks toes 2 and 3 on both feet. On the right, stubs are short, on left toe 2 is short, toe 3 lacks only the claw and distal phalanx. There is no definitive explanation of what happened. He is obviously still capable of not only finding prey for himself, but also a family each year.
For the fifteenth year, a pair nested in an open tray on the east side of the building at Wells Fargo. The female is nine-year-old Speedy b/g 30/E, a 2003 hatch from the King plant in Bayport, MN and the male is eight-year-old MPR2 b/g D/32, a 2004 hatch from the Multifoods Tower in Minneapolis, MN. The first year nesting attempted here was 1997, and a total of 51 young have been produced.
