Kinney and KathyQ Are nested on the 31st floor of the Indianapolis Indiana Star Market Tower

Original Maine forum thread

LINK to 2 refresh cams on one page

Falcon Resource Page

LINK to Falcon Blog

GREAT FAQ page on these falcons This page is cool. Lots of information,  scroll to bottom for details on the building and pictures showing where the nest is.

Videos posted on Utube from a hand held cam view including mating on March 6th 2010 on a ledge.. 8) And a count down clock to first egg? lol

Things from the FAQ page

Where were Kinney and KathyQ born?

 Kinney was raised from incubated eggs by a breeder in Montana and sent to Lexington, KY in 1993, KathyQ was hatched in Milwaukee, WI in 1998, given the name Chantal but when she showed up here we were not able to identify her for about one year so we started calling her KathyQ in memory of Kathy Quimbach who was a well liked DNR employee that died the year before.

The ledge is outside the nest box. It goes all round the building with a few obstacles at the bottom of the 31st floor.

Why isn't KathyQ sitting on the eggs?
Because incubating doesn't start until the last egg is laid, all she and Kinney need do is to keep them warm enough and dry. According to John Castrale, the eggs can be left alone all day if the outside temperatures may be enough to keep the eggs sufficiently warm. Usually some incubation needs to happen at night when the temperatures drop. Once incubation starts, however, constant temperature IS required and KathyQ or Kinney will be on the eggs at all times.
