William Osler brief update. Two boys fledged today. Romeo flew and landed on the window ledge and after another flight made it back to the nest ledge. Shadow took flight and landed on the same ledge that Romeo had just left minutes before. Another flight took shadow to the rooftop. One more flight was had by Shadow that landed him on the giant construction crane. Willow and Echo remain unfledged.

June 12th 2017
William Osler brief update. This morning when I arrived it was controlled chaos at the site. Two of the boys were flying around all over the place and landing in areas that made me frankly quite nervous. All I can say is that both boys made long flights landed decently and are in positions where we can clearly watch them. At this point we are counting heads and not looking at tape colours as they won’t sit still long enough. What I can say for certain is this, all three of the boys have now fledged. One is on the roof retaining wall, one is on the crane and the third is sitting on the roof on top of the pipe. Willow, who we have nicknamed Willow the pillow, is sleeping on the north side of the hospital tucked up against the pillar.

Islington Bloor centre brief update. Appollo was the first to fly of the four boys and took flight yesterday staying high and doing well. He flew to Kingsway on the park and stayed there for a while but on his return to the nest ledge came up short. He flew around the building and ended up on the mezzanine level. That’s where he spent the night last night. This morning he took flight and came down at the front entrance of the Kingsway on the park. There he was rescued and placed in the carrier. A little later today Falk took flight and he managed to slip away unseen. Both parents were indicating that he had ended up down on the mezzanine level and that is where we believe he currently stands. We will be back at dawn to continue the search for him tomorrow. Charlie and Lashay remain unfledged.

slington Bloor centre update. Apollo has flown from the roof of the nest building where I released him last night and is on the west tower. Falk was also located this morning at the base of the centre tower on the mezzanine level. He unfortunately has had a tragic strike with the centre tower and he did not survive. RIP Falk. The last two boys are still on the next ledge and we expect a fledge soon.

Islington Bloor centre update from yesterday. Bruce opened the watch at dawn and was unable to find Falk anywhere. We had Appollo up on the roof where he was released and two still on the ledge. Apollo made a few flights yesterday but the parents were spending time and paying attention to the mezzanine area. Rob came in and took over for Bruce in the morning and during his walk about he was able to locate Falk on the mezzanine area. Rob went up and recovered him as he had obviously struck the building and his strike was fatal. Lucie came in and took over watching for Rob and had Apollo over on the Moneris building where he was sitting comfortably up on the roof level and still to unfledged juveniles on the ledge. At some point during the high heat of the day Apollo jumped down onto the roof of the west tower and that is where he stayed for the day. He did not reappear by the evening and both Lashay and Charlie have yet to fly. Bruce will be back at dawn to check for Apollo and watch our two yet to fledge.
