Falcon Chick Hopefuls

The 20th Anniversary of the Woodmen of the World Peregrine Falcon Project was something of a letdown to many. Falcon fans watched as Hera laid four eggs, but the excitement quickly turned into sadness.

Hera was not able to tend to the eggs after her confrontation with another peregrine falcon on May 5, 2008. She was quickly taken to Raptor Recovery Center Nebraska for medical care, and while Zeus took over caring for the eggs, he was unsuccessful due to the cold, wet weather and lack of food.

Today, Hera has fully recovered and is back at the Woodmen Tower with Zeus. “Both birds are definitely here,” said Tim Sautter, Manager of the Tower.

The excitement is starting to build and many are hopeful that our winged friends will have better luck in 2009.
