When Sam discovers the peregrine falcon nest, it is occupied by female game birds, not peregrine falcon chicks as is implied. Peregrine falcon chicks are white and downy with a slightly hooked beak. The birds in the nest are most likely female Japanese quail or some similar type of game bird.
You know, you've done some amazing things here, Sam. Hollowed out a whole little world for yourself. I bet there's not another boy in the whole civilized world who's done anything like it.
Sam: Yeah, but that's not why I came.
Miss Turner: Why did you come, Sam?
When Sam is taking Gus's out of his box for the first time he should not have left the box in the wilderness. A naturalist would be concerned about trash being left behind and taken the box with him, empty.
