Fledge Watch Reports Get a Home of Their Own

FalconWatch Blog Screenshot

For 2008 we’re introducing the FalconWatch blog! The FalconWatch blog will store all of the reports from our fledge watchers throughout the summer and beyond. You’ll be able to comment on the reports just as you can with the articles posted at Imprints! We’ll be adding links for the new blog to the Rochester Falconcam website soon. In the meantime, you can click the link above to read the first three fledge watch reports, or click the FalconWatch Blog link on the right side of the Imprints screen.

    I have been enjoying Mariah, Kaver, and their offspring for a few years now, from Georgia. I’m very excited about all the new changes that are coming. Thank you, Kodak, for first introducing me to and taking such good care of the “kids” all these years. I’m sure you will miss having the nestbox on the building.

    I was very saddened to hear about Skye and Hafoc. I’m am eagerly awaiting reports on Quest and hope she and her transmitter fare much better.

    Keeping up with Freedom, Rhea Mae, Millie, and Linn has been an incredible treat. Is is strange for me to be so proud of, and for, Mariah and Kaver? :-)

    Thank you Rochester Falconcam and Jess, GVAS, and CPF (and others soon to come, no doubt) for all your hard work and dedication!

    How old will the juvies be when their breast turn white. That is the only way I can tell the juvie from the adult.

    Thanks for the update..I’ll be sure to check it out. Can you tell me..I only see 4 fledges..where is the other one?

  4. Ei says:

    Anita-They won’t molt into their adult plumage until next spring.

    Kathy V-there are currently 3 at the nestbox and 2 sometimes not visible in the playpen-at least when I checked 5 minutes ago ;) They aren’t considered fledglings until they take their first actual flight, not just from perch to perch, though every perch change shows they’re closer to flying!

    Kathy V – All are safe as of 7:00 p.m. – Carol P.

    Official report June 17th 6:30 to 8.- EASY AND BREEZY
    I arrived to meet Carol P and Marcia braving the cold ! It was like a Rochester November day ! At least the rain wasn’t torrential like last night!
    Kaver and Mariah were gently flying in lovely circles around the tower to the sounds of their kakking children.
    Susan B spent the whole watch flapping back and forth on top of the nest box, Seneca barely popped her head out from inside, and Quest never went farther than the perch. Diamonte was flapping with in the playpen and Zephyr only gave us a few frights when he almost lifted off from the corner of the ledge on the outside of the playpen bars. Zephyr treated us to a walk or two across the front of the playpen rail ..n the outside of course!
    Mariah peerched most of the night by the rocket ships and kaver stayed close by the arch above the box.
    Lisa McK joined us, and Angela D and her mom Tammy braved the weather as did a new watcher and friend who.s name I didn’t catch. Tom the security gurd came out for a quick watch, and Diana and Jeanne showed up at the end of thenight . All in all it was a quiet, safe watch.

    Thanks..Eli..as you can tell I am a novice at this..with the terminolgy, but I find it so fascinating, and I am really hooked. Guess I worry too much, only want all to be well. Thanks again.

    I would be grateful if there were a LINK to the Fledge Watch blog either by the Imprints link or over in the side bar on the right of the screen (or left of the screen – I am not too fussy). I clicked on various mentions of Fledge Watch text before I actually found the additional blog.

    OK I just found it on the Blog Roll. I have my own blog with Word Press and should have found it sooner, but there are so many things in the right hand side bar that it was off the screen while I was searching the rfalconcam site.
