Courthouse Falcons

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.

Photo Galleries

The photo galleries from 2017 to the Present provide great close-up photos of the events from eggs to new baby falcons.  It’s a great way to get an insider’s look at one of nature’s most incredible birds.
