June 26, 2003 - Banding Day

A great day, a good turnout and four wonderful peregrine chicks named Albertus, Edna B., Leader, and Foster

Hosted by the Leeds County Stewardship Council, at the Charleston Lake Association Office

The Cadillac of hack boxes ...




July 12, 2003 - To help identify after birds after release, each of the chicks had several of their tail feathers coloured blonde.  Foster had 4 of her middle tail feathers bleached, Leeder has 4 of his left tail feathers bleached, and Albertus had 4 of his right tail feathers bleached.  This practice of bleaching several of the birds tail feathers is very safe  and each bird was returned to the  hack no worse for wear, but with a little added colour.

Falcon Watch 2003

This is the only way to do a falcon watch: on the lake, in a boat, under sunny skies and with a BBQ!!
No noise, no buses and no traffic.  The birds here have it made!!
