Popular Falcons Ousted From Topeka Nest

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ A pair of peregrine falcons who became
Internet stars while living in a nesting box in downtown Topeka has
been evicted by another pair of falcons.

WIBW radio reports that a falcon couple from Nebraska that was
flying home from South America moved into a nesting box on Westar
Energy's downtown building sometime last week. The female has laid two eggs.

Westar employees have named the new falcon residents Nemaha and Boreas.

The original pair of falcons, named Hope and Doorly, stopped to
hatch babies in the box every year since 2004. They became famous
when Westar installed two webcams to watch the eggs. Westar is
hoping they will find a new home in another nesting box that's been
installed at the Tecumseh Energy center south of Topeka.
