An excerpt from a 5/31/09 falcon watch report by me.  It seems that Dot.ca isn't the only falcon that likes to snatch a mate's meal.   laugh

7:35 pm - Back to Midtown. Now this was a little crazy to watch. Archer came in with a Starling sized, headless bird clutched in his talons. He landed on Midtown and started to pluck feathers. Beauty wanted the food. She flew to him, expecting him to hand it over. Nope! Archer grabbed the food and landed on top of Midtown, plucking again. Beauty tried again, Archer took off with the food. This went on for quite awhile.

7:54 pm - Archer finally lands with the prey on the NE corner of the lower section of Midtown, very close to the nest ledge. Beauty landed next to him and FINALLY snagged her dinner.

8:02 pm - Beauty took the prey to the B&L building and enjoyed her meal. Archer took over on the nest ledge, jumping down into the gutter.


This was during the time that Archer and Beauty were hanging out on Midtown Plaza and Mariah was still at Kodak Office. - Carol P.

8  Anything Else / Totally OT / Fall Has Arrived....... on: 27-Oct-14, 08:20:49 AM
Here's some Monday reading...

Fall is here and itís time to say hello to beautiful foliage, falling leaves, pumpkin spiced lattes and cozy sweaters! As the season changes, fall brings unique challenges while walking and driving. Keep your safety in mind and review the tips below.

Leaves and Leaf Peepers
Fallen leaves litter the roads, making streets slick while obscuring traffic lines and other pavement markings. They also hide potholes and other road hazards and when it rains, it can make those wet leaves on the roadway as dangerous as ice. Where there are turning leaves, there are leaf peepers. These leaf-peeping drivers tend to crawl along the roads and make unpredictable stops to admire the changing foliage. In addition, a pile of leaves raked to the side of the road is an inviting place for children and pets to enjoy jumping or burrowing down and hiding.
  
Fog
Cold fall mornings often lead to fog, which can greatly limit your driving visibility and perception of distance. One common mistake drivers make during foggy conditions is putting on their high beams instead of staying with their low beams. This only makes visibility worse because your high beams will bounce off the fog and create glare.

Frost
During the fall, temperatures tend to drop dramatically during the night, which can lead to morning frost and icy spots on the road. This is especially common on bridges, overpasses, and shaded areas of the road.

Sun glare
Sun glare can impact your sight for seconds after exposure, making it hard to see pedestrians, oncoming traffic, or the car in front of you. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, drivers describe being "blinded" after exposure, and this sometimes leads to accidents or near misses.

Overall, itís a beautiful time of the year, so being mindful of the dangers and by using extra caution you can ensure everyoneís safety.   autumn

A Funny Memory from the old Kodak Birdcam days.....

I forget what year it was, but it was before the old KFalconcam forum or this one existed.  It was during the time that there was a discussion board on the Kodak Birdcam.  Jim P and I were co-moderators of that board.  One day, something really funny happened.

For some reason, the discussion board decided to post EVERYONE's posts under Jim's name.  Suddenly Jim P became quite chatty.  Later that day, all the posts came in with my name on them.  Somehow that wasn't as hysterical as Jim posting that the falcon eyases were soooooo cute!   Hahaha!   2funny 

Does anyone else remember that?

Just a fond memory of the old M&K days.   happy

That's funny!  Whatever happened to Jim?  Haven't seen him on anything in quite a few years.

Jim's life got busy and took another direction.  His contributions are definitely missed.
