Mark Nash Reports:

July 3rd - 2015
A very good day in Oshawa today on the fledge watch, as little Atlas has in fact spread his wings and is flying like an ace!! Throughout the day, I watched little Atlas take many different flights, some short flights to and from various elevations of the hospital, to chasing his dad during some very long flights around the entire hospital facility in a “catch-me-if-you-can” game.

Both adults were on site in attendance and it appears that little Atlas is getting all of the attention (and then some) that he needs! With three different feedings by his parents, it would also appear that he is not under-fed at this point!

After watching him gain lots of altitude on a couple of different flights and land on several higher elevations of the hospital facility with ease, it was quite obvious that he has no problems both holding his altitude (and gaining it) and in no need of our assistance at this stage. While his landings are somewhat to be desired (as you might expect from a fledgling peregrine just learning), and with allot of trials and errors yet to go before he gets it right, I closed the fledge watch and departed for Toronto just after 7pm so I join Marion back on the Canada Square fledge watch. She was alone again this evening and still has her little male yet to fledge.
