Following the Falcons

It’s a Trio!

Charity laid her third egg on Sunday morning – and there’s still a strong possibility she will lay a fourth.

The falcons are looking after their nest more closely these days – and falcon fans are looking more closely, too!

For those who aren’t in Omaha, the camera faces East and overlooks our downtown area. On the left of the screen is the headquarters of Union Pacific railroad (the building with the green-ish windows). The red buildings in the center bookend one of the centerpieces of downtown Omaha, the Gene Leahy Mall, a beautiful walkway along a little waterway with benches and places to stop and feed geese. The falcons aren’t the only birds in town!
