CPF Postmaster Reports:

Hamilton Sheraton chicks have both successfully fledged, and are doing well. Both turned out to be females, named Laura #1687-19646 S over 30, red tape; and Brock 1687-19646 S over 31, (although she tape removed the next day),, (uncertainly over Brock’s sex at banding so she got a name that would be either male or female). Brock was several days younger than Laura, and she had a bit of difficulty with her landings, having to be rescued twice before the Falcon Watch was done. During her first check up after her rescue she was determined to be female. Both chicks and the parents have been visiting the nest ledge over the summer, and at times the two chicks can be seen there although those times are dwindling fast.

What exciting news for Madame X and Surge and all the Hamilton fans!! A second egg has hatched overnight!
There was almost 3 days between the laying of Egg 1 and 2 and the weather being damp and wet, full on incubation likely started earlier than usual hence the delay between egg hatching..that’s the story I’m going with! :)

These two don’t waste any time, even though they were late with egg laying this year the first hatch for Madame X and Surge has taken place this evening!!

It’s been hard to get a glimpse under the falcons due to the change from warm to cold winter like weather the past 12 hours or so but Joyce at Rfalcon and Hanny at BCAW both managed to capture her with her 2 eggs!
It’s wonderful to see Madame X at 14 years of age still going strong.

It might appear that Madame-X (and her mate Surge) are finally getting much closer to producing their first egg at the Hamilton Sheraton Hotel!
Reports streaming in would suggest that she is remained much closer to her scrape and nest bowl and that would suggest that she is egg bound.
Stay tuned for updated news……

Aug 8th Gleig from Hamiltons chicks.
Alfreda and Wagner demonstrated their flying skills today, circling, soaring and flying north out past Memorial Drive. They are doing so well since their early fledge days!
Joyce just reported seeing both A&W, Gleig still on nestbox perch and dad, who brought food in for kakking kids.
