BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Officials say there will be no live streaming video of peregrine falcons nesting in downtown Boise this year.

Erin Katzner of the Peregrine Fund tells the Idaho Statesman (https://bit.ly/2mNXjlJ) in a story on Thursday that the decision is part of a programming change after the popularity of the nesting falcons declined.

Last year, live streaming video recorded the incubation of the eggs in April and hatching of four chicks in early May.

A steady stream of dead birds brought in by their predator parents ensued at the nest on the 14th floor at One Capital Center, and all four chicks took flight later that summer.

Katzner says a live stream of an American kestrel family that nests on the roof of one of the Peregrine Fund’s buildings will return this year.
