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.

Looks like the year of boys! most sites that have had more then 2 chicks have produced more boys and Windsor is no different.
