The Dubuque County Courthouse is home to a pair of nesting peregrine falcons. For the past several years, they have been returning to the ledge outside of the fifth floor and laying eggs. The photo galleries below provide great photos of the events from eggs to new baby falcons.
On March 14, 2019, the falcons were back at the nest. The 2019 Falcon Photo Gallery contains a gallery of images, many from live streaming, as events unfolded. Be sure to watch the banding of the mother and baby falcons.
