Peregrine Falcon Nest Box

February 05, 2012

A pair of Peregrine Falcons are once again nesting, or are in the beginning stages of nesting, in the Ayer Mill Clock Tower, the world's largest mill clock tower, along Merrimack Street in Lawrence, MA. Here's the male as he chased a few pigeons around the tower.


The tower, seen below, has hosted a pair of nesting falcons for several years now. I've had the pleasure of photographing a few of the young from this nest in recent years. The male can be seen on the weather vane along with the placement of the nest box.


A close up of the nest box showing the nest cam and perch. The nest box can be seen from the side of the road along Merrimack St and should be fun to watch as the nesting season progresses.


And lastly the male as he came in for a landing on the weather vane.
