Hi there. Just took a peak at the web cam after hearing vocalizing /
figuring whoever was in the nest box would hop out.
3 for sure? two with their backs to the camera, and the middle facing out?]]>
Chick 1 female named Will-O named for William Osler band S 70 with red tape
Chick 2 Male named Romeo named for security call sign band Y 33 white tape
Chick 3 Male named Shadow named by Security band Y 31 blue tape
chick 4 Male named Echo named for security call sing band Y 32 Green tape
The oldest chick is 23 days old so we expect the first flights in about 10 to 14 days. Stay tuned for reports on their antics.]]>
Today’s banding went very well and as always a great group of people turned out to meet there peregrine family.
It turns out that there are 4 boys this year all in great health. The adults were busy fending off the intruders on the swing stage during the banding and at one point O’Connor decided to just have a snack and wait for volunteer Kathy to give the chicks back see picture. Christine from property manage had sent out to all tenants a request for names for this offspring and had some wonderful submissions. A draw was done to select the names thanks so much to everyone who sent in the names and who came to watch the banding.
Here is the information on this years brood and bands. colored tape was placed on the Silver band to help the fledge watch team keep track of and identify each chick from street level.
