Marilyn Weller Reports:

Site Coordinator Paul has been watching the Ambassador Bridge nest site closely and reports sighting one tiny head popping up for feeding. Looks like a very recent hatch and so far, only confirming one hatchling.

Paul hopes to get some photos to share soon.

Marilyn Weller Reports:

Paul reports that the eggs which were previously reported have disappeared today. It is not known what happened but it is possible that Daisy recognized they were not viable for some reason.

Paul also noted that Daisy and Victor seem to spending more time on the other side of the bridge, perhaps intending to relocate their nest to the southern face of the bridge again.

Ambassador Bridge Nest update

- All Reports

Marilyn Weller Reports:

Site Coordinator Paul, reports that he was able to see 2 eggs and possibly a third egg when at the site this evening. Although construction at the bridge has caused some disruption to the former nest site, Windsor’s pair have set up this year on the north face of the bridge (on the Detroit River side of the bridge).

We are optimistic for another successful season!

Report and photos from Paul Gosselin

A little slow start to the day as the sun came out. Later Juno and Mckeever got more active they have been flying together all day chasing each other and playing around and they both got fed twice. Juno chased victor allot. Daisy got chased by Mckeever.

Around 3 pm Juno was chasing victor and a pigeon came in victor went after it with Juno right behind him. Victor turn away and Juno went after the Pigeon, man what a chase but the pigeon got away. Juno is learning very well and quick to catch his food and looking to hunt on his own, Mckeever is getting there.

Taz was no were to be seen today hopefully he is off somewhere else and he is ok.

Mckeever was left on the back wall when I left at 8:30pm Juno off by the roof’s of the school.

First 3 picture’s are Juno last 3 picture’s are Mckeever.


McKeever finally found her wings

Marion Nash Reports:

I am glad I have a good cardiologist because as of today McKeever is starting to show greater confidence in her flying skills. Frank almost had a coronary this morning when she flew up and over the trucks on the bridge.

I am attaching a digiscoped picture of her which I believe epitomizes the confident Peregrine Falcon.

Taz made it back to the nest and has taken a few short flights and was back in the nest last night a close of the sift McKeever took some flights this morning.
