Woodmen Tower falcons Hera and Mintaka are feeling the pressure. These experienced parents know they need to choose the perfect nest and complete renovations before they lay their eggs. Their renovations will include removing old bones and making “scrapes,” which are shallow indentations they scratch out with their talons on the floor of the nest.

Keep watching and enter the “Nest Hunters” Sweepstakes! Simply select which nest box (north or east) you think the falcons will choose to raise their brood in this year on Woodmen of the World’s (WOWInsurance) Facebook page under the sweepstakes tab through 5:00 p.m. on Friday, March 21, 2014.
