!!! Singleton, comes to ground

July 08, 2016 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre

Linda Woods Reports:

Singleton took off from his light post roost and came to ground south of the Sheraton. He was picked up by the good folks of First Canadian Place Security. FCP security protocol is to call FLAP for any downed birds.  Kudos to both FLAP and First Canadian Place for their quick response in aiding the young falcon.

FLAP called us and it was determined to transfer Singleton to Toronto Wildlife for a quick assessment and the results are…. he is good to go.

CPF is taking the opportunity to have Singleton banded and officially named and will be returning to the Sheraton tomorrow, July 9th.

Currently, Rhea Mae is on the nest ledge.

Will update tomorrow after Singleton is released back to the ledge.

Peregrine Follies will continue.

Thank you FCP Security, Paloma of Fatal Light  Awareness Program, and Toronto Wildlife Centre, and of course  Harry from CPF Sheraton Peregrine Watch

!!! Singleton Has Taken Flight

July 06, 2016 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre

Linda Woods Reports:

Sheraton’s only hatch this year , Singleton, took  his first flight earlier today.

He was located on a nearby rooftop with Rhea Mae and Tiago watching over him. Not much activity today, very hot and humid.  Singleton had a good feed by Rhea Mae around 8pm this evening, Tiago was watching and decided he wanted to be part of this feast, but Singleton wasn’t going to share his food that Rhea Mae was spoon feeding and like a bull, lowered his head and went after Tiago and chased him off the dinner table.  Very funny and surprising to see.   Singleton was in the same spot at dark.

!!! July 5th Getting ready to go

July 05, 2016 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre

Linda Woods Reports:

Lots more activity this evening from our Sheraton Singleton.  Rhea Mae paid a brief visit to the ledge, and then took off again towards 130 Adelaide and out of my view.

A lot of flapping this evening more so then previous evenings, which is a good indication that the time is close to fly.

The Sheraton Watch has begun.

!!! Another VERY HOT day in the sun and a VERY HIGH UV of 9!!! Almost ready to go! Looking good!!

June 4th - 2016
A quick look at the Toronto Sheraton nest ledge via the CPF web cam and the little hatchling is not so little any more!! While there is some fluffy down still very visible,, it appears that the fledge time is almost upon us.

We watched the resident adult female come into the nest ledge and eat a food package that she brought in, with everyone (including the hatchlings) believing that she would have shared the food package. But that was not the case,, as the resident adult female prepped and ate the entire food package on the nest ledge in front of her hatchling! :-(

Its another hot one again today, especially in the direct sun, and the young hatchling has been avoiding the hot sum by staying around the pillar in the shade. The resident adult was also captured in the serious of photos that we snapped laying down on the nest ledge spread-winged in an effort to cool herself down.

It is likely that we will be starting the fledge watch in the next 24 to 48 hours. Given the size of the young hatchling in comparison to the resident adult,, it might appear that the hatchlings is a female.

Sadly, several nest sites this season did not get banded and the Toronto Sheraton Hotel nest site was one of them. The Ministry of Natural resources has only allotted a limited number of days this season again that the OMNRF bander has available to band,,, and as such, they have told us that they will not be banding any nest sites again this season that has less then two hatchlings. Very sadly, this season has had a low production with many nest sites only having one hatchling and many eggs that failed to hatch!
