Quest's baby !!! Archimedes 41/Y!  Was caught at the Tommy Thompson Park banding station today!!

Tommy Thompson Park .
1 hr ∑ Innisfil

Today's winds hampered our banding success.
Many raptors were being pushed by very fast.
We did manage to trap 2 Peregrine falcons today, despite the adverse conditions.
The first was an adult female, already banded with a Federal band. It was banded last June, somewhere in Ontario. We are waiting on exact location from the banding office.

The second was a young male that also was banded and had a colour band as well. A few texts later we determined the bird is called Archimedes, and had fledged fron the Harlequin Building this summer.
It is always fantastic catching these city birds, as we can add a little more information to the distribution and movement from city to city.

I just mapped the distance from the nest site and it's only 13 miles to Tommy Thompson Park. Archie hasn't gone far and I'll bet he visits home here and there like our Genesee did in the beginning. Maybe he'll show up in Rochester!!  Grin

Great news! Well done, Archimedes! Stay safe wherever you travel.

I am also curious about the identity of the adult female with a federal band.

From TPP: So we got information back on the Peregrine we caught yesterday. It turns out it was Pulse, the same Peregrine we captured last Nov at the same spot!!

She was originally banded from a clutch that were raised on the Ambassador Bridge last June.
She has completed nearly a full molt with no juvenile back or wing feathers evident. She 15 months old, making her a Second Year bird and weighed in at 1015g.

I remember she was a big bird as a Hatch Year bird!  It looks like she has made Toronto and the Toronto waterfront her new home.

Thanks, Carly! She is a beauty as an adult, as she was when she was a juvie. I remember the earlier photo from last November. One of five chicks, Pulse was originally listed as a male. I wonder how her siblings are doing.

Photos of Pulse are here:
