Zephyr and His Lady - 3/29/09

As we continue to keep our eye on Mariah and her new mate, we are happy to have a new pair to watch.  It’s wonderful to know that one of our young males has returned to Rochester.  We’re very hopeful that  he and the female hanging out in nearby Brighton will choose to stick around to raise a family of their own.

A few of us braved the rain on Sunday afternoon to get a good look at this new pair.

The following is a video I took.  The female had just landed on a lower building on the west side of the complex.  She started vocalizing, loudly, while Zephyr flew around above her.

Not to worry.  We’re definitely keeping a close eye on Mariah and her Tiercel, who continue to hang out at Midtown Plaza.  Although we did see them both in the gorge  and flying around the Kodak Tower on Saturday.  So, where will they choose to nest?  We’ll keep Watching and report what we see.

    Thank you for the update, Carol!

    I just checked out the nestbox cam on multiview and see some “things” in and around the nestbox but can’t make them out. They don’t look like birds. What are they? Does anyone know?

    DOH!! Never mind… I just saw the post under “Imprints”. I should have done that first. So sorry!! :o

  3. Maureen in MA Says:

    btw, you have quite the steady hand in taking that video!! Isn’t Zephyr still too young to mate this season?

    It’s unlikely Zephyr would mate this year but it’s not impossible. There have been reports of first year birds being members of successful pairs. Someone on the yahoo board had posted that Cabot-Sirocco was a first year bird his first season with Mariah.

    Such good news - we needed some! Now we have the Z-man and Mr. T to keep us occupied! Thanks for all the photos and videos. And the time you spend getting them to us. :-)

    That is good news that Zephyr and his lady are in town. Nice to know at least two of M&K’s offspring are doing well. Thanks for the news.
