Another report fron Indiana about Canada Square’s Raptorette.

Marion Nash Reports:

I thought I would send you a quick message. Raptorette and Peenie got off to a late start but they have at least 2 eggs. I believe they were laid about 4/19/20. I have not been back up to check and see if there is more trying to give them some space. Not a bad start for such a young lady. She is molting and getting rid of some of that brown plumage. Hopefully we will know more in a couple of weeks 

Looks like a lot of good things happening up in your area.

Take Care,

Jeff

Thanks to Kyle at security for keeping an eye on the nest at Canada Square for us. We now have a second hatched egg and I an trying to plan a banding date. This site does not require a swing stage so we are hopeful.

Canada Square soon to be Grand Parrents Again!

Marion Nash Reports:

More great news from around the continent about our peregrine alumni from Canada.
Louise, hatched in 2016 at the Canada Square nest site to Haven and Malik, remains the resident female at the Rockford site in Illinois! I have to say, her beau is pretty handsome!!! A male name Lil Kool from Wisconsin. For those of you who keep track of these things, which we do here at CPF, Louise is the grand daughter of our most famous pair of peregrines in all of Ontario; Erin and Windwhistler. This pair reigned at 18 King St E for well over a decade and their young have been establishing sites and repopulating our skies in Ontario and far beyond. So proud of our girl. Go Louise!!!!

Raptorette in Indiana ( may start a family of her own this spring)

March 22, 2020 - Toronto - Canada Square Building - Yonge and Eglinton

Marion Nash Reports:

Marion,

I was put in contact with Tracy Simpson she provided me a very nice reply with information. I also reported the band as you know. I have sent her some information and pictures but here is the information. I live in Anderson, IN and last April an adult male Peregrine Falcon showed up that was banded. It was banded in Canton, OH in 2012. He was soon joined by an adult female. At some point the adult female was replaced with a second year female. Then a little bit later the banded adult male left and was replaced by an unbanded male. I worked with Indiana DNR to get a nest box installed but it was late in the season and a young bird so no luck. She molted into a nice adult plumage and both of them stuck around all winter. However, both birds disappeared on March 4th. Despite a lot of looking by a couple of us no luck. Suddenly on March 15th the banded male from 2019 showed back up and brought with him a young female banded bird. It just happens to be Raptorette that you banded last year J

I attached pictures as well as my ebird checklist.

So to answer your question she is about 475 miles away and doing well. I witnessed them copulating this morning and they are interacting a lot so I am hopeful they will attempt this year even though she is young.

Let me know if you have any more questions.

Jeff
