Marion Nash Reports:

One of the falcons from lake ridge hospital was hanging out on our roof watching a young one fly.

It was quite impressive I thought you might enjoy the photos. They were pirched there for over 5 hours.

Have a good day

While it seems to be a common happening this season with a very low production of hatchlings at many of the peregrine nest sites here in southern Ontario, we are excited never the less to see healthy chicks regardless of how many there are!

On another positive note, the little Oshawa Lakeview hospital hatchling will get all of its parents undivided attention for sure!!
A big thank you to Ken and Ernie for the updates and the photos as they have done a great job monitoring!!

!!! We need your help!

Our bad,, as we are way behind in the updates!! Yes, congratulations is in order on several accounts,,,
Yes, the resident Oshawa pair have in fact been involved in full time incubation duties over the past month! :-)

It would appear by the recent observations and photos, (with much thanks to the dedicated “human” hospital foster parents, the resident adults are the same as last year.

The adults did in fact winter over on territory and remained very territorial and protective of their new nest box! Outsiders beware!!!!

The best news of late (only just today),, is that eggs are starting to hatch!!! With one egg confirmed to have hatched so far,, its shaping up to be a very positive season for the resident adult peregrines at Lakeview!!
Stay tuned…………

Congratulations are in order!!!

!!! Little Atlas has some re-hab time with a broken wing,, but the prognosis for a quick turn-around and recovery and release looks very promising!

A very busy day indeed for us all with Mark running out to rescue a trapped fledgling from behind a glass balcony and Tracy running out to Oshawa to rescue a downed fledgling on the ground!

While I don’t have much of the details, we will have to wait for Tracy’s rescue report, the telephone was ringing off the hook today at the CPF head office with downed and trapped fledglings in both Scarborough and Oshawa.

Sadly, little Atlas was recovered from the sidewalk near the Oshawa City Hall today having sustained a non-life threatening injury that was diagnosed after x-rays with a broken wing! The much better news, is that his broken wing is very repairable and his prognosis for a quick turnaround for his release after a short rehab looks really promising!

Stay tuned for more details to follow……….

!!! Atlas is seeing the world! OK, maybe not the world as we know it, but his small part of it. Its a start :-)

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.
