A new suitor has joined Barb the Peregrine Falcon in her nest atop Baltimore’s TransAmerica skyscraper.
Boh, her previous beau, “disappeared from the nest in late April for unknown reasons,” after Barb laid four eggs and two hatched, according to the Chesapeake Conservancy, which has a livestream of the nest and posts occasional updates on its website.
The new suitor, whom some viewers have dubbed “Nubo,” has been courting Barb in the month since, bringing prey to her and the two eyasses, or baby falcons.
Boh and Barb, the pair of peregrine falcons who nest on a ledge of Baltimore's Transamerica tower, welcomed their first egg of the season on the first day of spring. The Chesapeake Conservancy has been broadcasting their nest live online since 2015.
