Default Peregrine Falcon Breeding

Hi all,

I have captive breeding pair of peregrines. Not much vocalization coming from the pen. The female is captive breed and the tiercel is a previously injured wild male. He can fly around the pen but would not be able for reintroduction to the wild.

These are first time breeding birds both 4 years old. I am also a first time breeder of peregrines, I have been feeding them a mixture of chick, quail and 4 week old chickens.

Should I be hearing some courting from the birds yet or do first time birds take a little longer in the season. The tiercel is skittish and I might change him next year to a captive breed male that seems more promising.

Any input would be helpful.

It would seem that my birds are paired in that they are sitting on the nest ledge together and the tiercel is at ease with the female. There seems to be very little in the way of vocalization.

Have any of you breeders had a pair that are quiet, yet successfully breed.

I last bred a pair over 15 years ago but I remember there being a lot of noise from the pen.

Any advice is welcome.
