A big thank you to Robert Secord for sending in some of his photos and his observation report of a peregrine falcon that he was able to photograph today. He was also lucky enough to get some clear photos of the peregrines coloured leg band number, and as a result, we have been able to get a identity on the bird!

The Black band number 23 over X in Roberts photos turns out to be a 2010 produced peregrine falcon, banded as a female who was produced at the William Osler Health Care Centre – (Etobicoke Hospital) nest site in Etobicoke Ontario. Her name is “Athena”, and her mother is non-other than O’Connor – her father is Hurricane. Both O’Connor and Hurricane have very long detailed histories of their own with lengthy detailed family trees.

Thank you Robert for sharing!!!!

Robert Writes:
I had the privilege of seeing this peregrine today February 28, 2015 at Eastgate Mall on Centennial Parkway in Hamilton, Ontario. I am wondering if you can identify it from the attached leg band photo and tell me more about this bird. Look forward to hearing from you in regards to this peregrine falcon.
Thanks
Robert Secord
