Three chicks have hatched in a peregrine falcon nest on the 14th floor of a downtown Boise building and there’s a streaming web cam to watch the action.

Biologists will put bands on the chicks in early June before the birds fledge and leave the nest at One Capital Center.

The Idaho Department of Fish and Game workers assisted last year when four chicks successfully fledged from the nest. Several of the young birds ended up at ground level in downtown Boise before becoming confident flyers.

The parents are believed to be the same two unnamed adult falcons that have used the nest the last several years.

I am not a fan of birds and actually have an irrational fear of them, but I do enjoy watching them on the streaming web cam. It's definitely fascinating and cool to watch!
