Thank you for making a topic for Aria  :happy:.  All is well here, quiet day for the falcons save for a Red Tail Lucky had a bit of a dance with.

We will keep an eye out for them and hope this was just a one time thing and not a reconnaissance by the mystery female for a future attempt at moving in.

I agree!  Aria definitely needed her own topic! Glad things are so far, so good!  Thanks for keeping an eye on them, Carly!

Lucie stayed until about 3 pm and I just got home myself.  I did a tour around the buildings after I left the office to count heads.  Aria was perched on the ledge next to the nest ledge, she has some leftovers stashed there.  Lucky was out back of the West Tower on the Moneris sign.

Both of them stuck close to the site and rested.  Aria barely left the ledges save to go hunting and Lucky accompanied her and came back with her.

Another quiet, peaceful day at the site.  Aria has been on the nest ledge most of the day.  Snow on the way tonight.

I notice she's been very quiet since the 'visitor' the other day, a learning experience for her I expect.

        That intruder must not have been O’Connor then?

Hard to say Kris without looking at bands- from the ground at first I sure thought it was her but I wouldn't think she would leave again - it would certainly not be in keeping with the O'Connor I know.  She certainly acted like she owned the place and seemed to know the ins and outs of the buildings and ledges - I just don't know - an offspring maybe?.  I don't what we missed that day but obviously something happened when all 3 were out of our sight as she hasn't been back since.

I do think we'll have to be vigilant as Aria being young will make her a beacon for an older, more dominant female thinking they can move in easily.  Hopefully once her hormones kick in for the first time in February, she'll emulate her sister and her mother.  I think she's a smart girl, she's strong, she's a great flier and hunter and the rest Lucky will teach her until she comes into her own as an adult.  That's my sincere hope anyway.

All is well here this week.  Aria and Lucky have been spending lots of time together, flying and hunting and just hanging out.  Such a change in Aria since the intruder last Monday.  She is much quieter now and more cooperative with Lucky now in patrolling and keeping an eye on things.  She's growing up  :wub:

Lucky is great, his parents are much like B and DC are now so he was well brought up.  Chester, as you might remember was brought up by Haven and Stormin (his dad Irving died in 2011 after a collision with some cables) who by all accounts was a good foster dad.  It's great to see that even though Irving was only with us a short time, his legacy continues on through his son and grandson.

I went to ask security just now because it's been 3 months already and he said they're hoping to be done 1st or 2nd week of December.  I also let them know I have people watching (lol) and told them Aria is new and that her dad was born here.  They were quite excited to hear that.  

Aria has been okay with them on the building, in fact she's on cam now and they're on the other side doing their work.  I was actually surprised she dive bombed them but maybe she's just practicing and letting them know who is boss here  :devil:

Carly, please thank Lucie for the photos of Aria. She is one aggressive falcon!

Thank you for checking with security on the progress of the work on the building, and updating them on the peregrines.

Will do Alison.  It's funny..well not funny...but the day the intruder came Aria was more confused than aggressive.  That incident though - it's like a light switch went on inside her and changed her personality, she's  a different bird now. 

For me it's been fascinating because I've seen one year old falcons on camera but I've never seen one transition from a sub adult to adult in person before so watching her transform has been a real experience.   I just always assumed it was the hormones that did it once they near the 2 year mark but it seems life experiences - just like with us - is what changes them  :happy:

Lucie was on site today and Aria brought in a long tailed duck!!   :bow: :bow: :bow:

Lucie said:  I stopped at Bloor/Islington to check on Lucky and Aria this afternoon. As I drove down Bloor Street, I saw one of them take off, hunting most likely. Lucky was on the camera, so I knew it was Aria, and that she'd probably be back soon since she's usually pretty quick. Before I could adjust my camera settings, I heard the ee-chupping and saw her struggling! I couldn't believe what she came back with! See if you can identify what was on her menu today 😲 She couldn't make it up to the ledge and had to circle around ending up on the other side of the building

***(all photos taken by Lucie as always  :happy: )***

LOL..that was my first thought too.  It's those eye patches.  I honestly don't know much about ducks but a few other people ID'd it as the long tail duck.  Dang that girl is fierce!

Was just outside when I saw 2 birds hurtling towards the ground heading right into traffic....it was Aria and she had a pigeon but it got loose on her so she was in pursuit of it and pulled up at the last minute. I didn't realize it was a pigeon as it happened so fast so I ran across the street in case it was another falcon...and there in the pub doorway is this poor brown pigeon..wings up again the wall, pressed as tightly as he could to the wall with this stunned looked on his face. She landed on a light pole but took off after she saw me going near her intended prey. Honestly! These birds are going to kill me!

Fight...okay I'm back.  Aria is back and fine.  Apologies if I freaked anyone out.  I was doing my work and had cam up on desktop when a falcon landed on ledge with feathers plucked out of chest and blood dripping down their leg and I lost my mind.

Went outside ..had 3 in the air and 2 female flew west on Bloor.  Stood out there for what seemed like an hour but wasn't ...Aria has returned and she' is okay.

I'm not even sure now if it was 2 females or 2 males, honestly I freaked out when I saw the blood and of course it was a blizzard when I ran outside and could barely see looking up.  Aria is fine, I just saw her on cam so definitely not her that is injured but she was sure making a racket.  I did see her and Lucky bonding a few minutes ago from the ground but i need to see him to make sure he's not injured.  I am off work in 15 minutes then I will go out and observe.

Okay I"m home, both Aria and Lucky are okay.  I got a photo of the injured falcon, it might be a kid from last year.   You can see a bloody feather on it's chest and blood on the leg...it seemed at home and kept landing on all the ledges.  I looked everywhere to make sure no one was grounded.  Aria just wouldn't stop yelling..holy moly - if there's a fire I want her as my alarm!

**I did lighten the photo to see that it is banded so that's throwin the color off but the bird has a lot of brownish plumage unlike jet black Aria and Dark Lucky.  I think it's male now upon calming down and looking at the photo.  AT the time I took it, I just ran as I heard the yelling from inside the office.

Definitely a first year bird. The only adult I've ever seen who still has the light feather "crown" on the back of their head is Quest.

Post by: carly on 06-May-18, 12:25:25 pm
Amidst all the good hatching news for Beauty and Cadence, I have some sad news to share with everyone.  It's not a post I ever expected to make so soon but it is what it is.

Aria has been displaced by another female...before I go on - let me assure you I saw Aria just an hour ago and she is fine.  She is alive and I saw no visible injuries on her.  If any of you have been watching the cam since May 1st you may have been confused at who you were seeing as was I - Aria is still trying to come back home it seems so you may have seen her the odd time as well as this new female.

Lucky at this point only cares about eggs and whoever will lay them so he's staying out of this.  The new female has been positively ID'd by Roger as 69/BC who is Darcy from the Statler site in Buffalo, which makes her an M&K great grand child so there is that.  Her father Ralphie is RM and Tiago's son as you know.

We have all really come to love Aria - she's just been a breathe of fresh air at our site.  She even attracted the attention of younger workers at a new tech company at our site with her chattering and exceptional flying skills.  They were all so excited to learn about peregrine falcons and it's all because of her.  You just couldn't help but know when she was around and you could see and hear her exuberance.  

At this point I don't know what is going to happen, I am hoping she gives up and keeps herself safe.  Darcy is a very large falcon - much larger than both Aria and Lucky.  I suspect she is the female that came back in November as it was very much a case of deju-vu seeing all three of them in the air this morning.  Darcy chased her out of the territory and then returned a bit later but otherwise I didn't see any indication of a fight  so at this point I think it's more like a cat and mouse situation.  Lucky seems to have accepted Darcy and is providing food for her and mating with her.

I will keep you posted on any updates and you can be sure I will keep an eye out for Aria.

It’s sad to hear she’s lost her site.  I loved watching her “chatter”!  Even though you couldn’t hear her on cam, you could see how vocal she is.  I’m really glad you got to see her today, she’s ok and, hopefully, she stays away and keeps herself safe.  Thanks for being Aria’s watcher and keeping us posted.

Good that nobody appears to be hurt. Maybe Aria needs to wander one more year before settling in somewhere. If she doesn't stay there maybe we'll be lucky enough to see her again elsewhere.  :heart:

I think you are right MAK, as was Joyce who said the same thing to me.  Aria is a free spirit, she's all about having flying and hunting - both of which she excels at.  I hope she finds a better place quite frankly, much as I"ll miss her she deserves better than what she experienced the past few months with all the interruptions and intrusions at our site.

What a beautiful little juvie! I find the bands hard to read in this pic, especially the numbers.

However, if the bands are indeed 69/BC, black over green, I did find that band number. The juvie would be from the Statler nest in Buffalo. There were two chicks this year, Erica and D'Arcy. At banding, one was given the bands 69/BC, and the other chick had the bands 70/BC.

Shortly after banding, D'Arcy became very ill, and she did not survive, so this juvie would be Erica. Erica was grounded at least once after fledging, and I have heard nothing of her since.

Here are a couple of pics from banding:

(https://picload.org/image/radpwicl/statler-dec-4-9a.jpg)


I'm just going to post this quote here because I also have the surviving Statler juvie from 2016 listed as Erica. I'm not sure which name is actually correct, but we can hopefully figure it out. I believe Sage had some input as well on FB since she was there at that banding. I didn't actually have a name for the one who didn't survive when I did the family tree, so I can correct that now as well as add band numbers.

Oh god Kitty ... the heck we went through with this band ID as I too said it was Erica.  DNR has her listed as D'arcy and I was told in no uncertain terms to call her D'arcy as that is what is on record with them.

Ok I"m home...so...there is a story.  I'll start at the beginning because it's complicated.   So yesterday Mathew, from Jacks home - the private condo's emailed me to say mom was in a fight and was on a lower balcony and they didn't know if she could fly.  This morning she flew and the other female was there and chased her out.  I did see photo's of Mom that he took and it was definitely her.  She was displaced and was trying to come home I guess.  They assumed it was Mom and Jack still there.  

I of course thought..hmm could the intruder be Aria since the site is so close to ours so off Lucie and I went.  Well turns out Mom was the intruder, Jack is not there anymore.  Aria is nesting with a male banded Black/Red with a purple USFW band - I have the numbers - just confirming with a US contact first before I post.  She has 3 eggs so far and she's incubating them so they are hers, she is fine and looks fantastic.  I knew it was her soon as I looked through the bins and saw her chest and head...even before Lucie got the bands.  So Aria has now taken over her grandfather's nest site.

Apparently she was talon locked with Mom yesterday and got on top of her and pinned her down and just pecked away at her.  Mom is fine, I saw photos he took last night of her but she was obviously exhausted.  We don't know her age but she'd be 16 or 17 years of age.

Contrary to the past - people there were fantastic with us.  We had one couple invite us into their apartment and on to their balcony right across the nest so Lucie could take photos. Another gave us their number and said we could call and they'd let us in.  Mathew took us up to take photos as well and we met more people.  So that was a nice surprise.  Lucie just dropped me off - she got lots of photos she will post as soon as she's sorted them.

I guess it being the weekend I won't find out about the bands definitively but maybe someone here can help as well.  His band number is in the database however it doesn't specify if the USFW is purple or not?  I guess they don't as I just checked O'Connor's bands and they don't specify it either.  I just didn't want to say 'oh yeah it's this guy and then it turns out there's a twist and he's not' - it happened once before years ago so I won't say for sure it is.

He is banded Black over Red - 13/N.  The database says those bands belong to a male that was born in 2013 in Gary, Indiana at the US Steel 'old coke plant'.  I did send a pm to a contact in Indiana so we'll see what she comes back with.  There is no name listed for him in the database.  So he'd be 6 years old which is interesting - only because I expect them to be younger but there it is. 

He's a handsome lad I'll say that and a good provider from what we saw.  He brought Aria a 'banded pigeon -oops' and she went to town on it.

The mid-west USFWS bands are purple...and that database is for the mid-west only. (Wish we had an east coast one too). East coast USFWS is silver. If they have a resident bird with a silver band they will note it in there somewhere.

Thanks Kitty. We don't use purple up here so it's always confusing to me.

I just got a pm back from my contact in Indy and she will check her records and if she doesn't have him then she said her colleague would as he does the bandings in Gary.  We don't often get birds from there up here so I just want to be sure but likely she thinks it is him :)

Mathew says all is well and quiet, incubation continues and he will let us know when/if a hatch occurs.

Lucie and I went out to visit Aria today.  Sadly she only has one egg left, which we confirmed when there was a shift change, that they are both incubating diligently.  Spoke to some of the watchers there and there was 2 a few days ago but it seems another was removed.  It's been about 41 days already so we were hoping that they would have hatched by now.

She is nesting on a ledge though and most of our ledge nests have failed this Spring due to the cold, the rain and the damp weather.  

I was hoping for better news for you all and for her and Indy.  On the plus side, they are both still there and doing well.

Aria and Indie did give up their last egg week before last.  They were then seen mating again and favoring a new ledge on one of the buildings at the complex.  Unfortunately the ledge they've chosen isn't visible to our watchers there as it's at the end of the same condo complex so there is no building next to it where you could go up and have a look across.   

So we don't know if they've successfully reclutched or not but Marlene and Mathew are both keeping an eye on them when they can.  It's a really nice area where they are, that complex backs onto a golf course and then there is a river that runs by and a nice wooded area with walking trails.  So no nasty reflective glass.  There are a few mid-rises across the street from the front of the complex them for kids to fledge to which is nice as well.  It's very open and peaceful there.

Lucie and I are both in touch with M & M so if we hear anything we'll let you know.  For now, she is safe and she has a mate and a home  :heart:

Photos from today of Aria and Indy taken by Lucie posted to CPF Facebook!

CHECK-IN AT AN ETOBICOKE NEST SITE:

I am happy to confirm that ARIA (black/green, 85/BA, 2016 hatch from Rochester) and her mate, we call him 'INDY' as he has no official name (black/red, 13/N, a 2013 hatch from Gary, Indiana) are still the couple at an Etobicoke Private Residence.

Lucie and I were hoping to go see how it's going with Aria and Indie but you know 'social distancing'.  I did get this cell phone photo from Marlene (who lives there) last night...it's not clear but it shows them on the ledge where they were last year.  I can't tell who is who in the photo but one is in the usual scrape where eggs would go.  She will keep me posted and I will pass anything on that I hear.

I heard yesterday that an intruder was at the site and contacted Lucie and she went by today to check on Aria and Indie.  She positively ID'd Aria by her bands and Indie as well.  She got some pictures of them and also the old female who is just outside the territory on another building so it may have been her coming by...she'd be about 17 or 18 years old.   There was no 'trouble' today though.

In order of photos - I had to resize them to meet the limits here so I cropped them down:  

1. Indie on eggs
2. Aria on building
3. Old Mom
4. Indie and Aria ..ahem..making more eggs.

Anyway just got this photo taken this morning...food to the eggs!!!!  That usually means they are hearing something!!!  Very encouraging!!!  Talons crossed!!

Lucie is on site and she says Aria and Indie are doing good and are paying attention to the eggs and not the workmen!  So that's good!

Lucie has posted some photos to her Facebook page and to CPF's FB page of Aria, Indy and the babies.  Including a photo where Aria picks up her newly hatched second baby to relocate it.  The baby is fine but they were surprised by it.  She just wanted her baby closer to her.  

Please note the photos are taken through a window as she doesn't have access to the tenants balcony we used to go on due to COVID.  They still came out decent all things considered!  I've attached a few here including the 'baby move'.

Lucie has posted some photos to her Facebook page and to CPF's FB page of Aria, Indy and the babies.  Including a photo where Aria picks up her newly hatched second baby to relocate it.  The baby is fine but they were surprised by it.  She just wanted her baby closer to her.  

Please note the photos are taken through a window as she doesn't have access to the tenants balcony we used to go on due to COVID.  They still came out decent all things considered!  I've attached a few here including the 'baby move'.


Thanks for sharing the pics! So happy for Aria and, if she's like her mom, she's going to do great in her new role!

Definitely 3 but might be 4, she thinks the last egg might have hatched yesterday afternoon and it's leaning on the one to the right at the front. But we'll see, it kind of looks like it but I'd like to see a 4th head up before we call it.

LOL..yes I noticed that.  I just heard from Marlene again and she saw the fourth egg so it is definitely 3.  I think that is perfect for a first time mom  :)

So sadly Aria and Indy's last hatch didn't survive.  I'm not sure of what happened as everyone there was quite distraught over it so all I got was that the little one didn't make it past 24 hours.  The other 2 are doing well though.  

On the good news side - the management has given permission for CPF to band the 2 babies. Banding is set for May 21st.

I hope so too patsy.  By all accounts Aria is a very protective mama and she is doing a good job with the kids.  Although they have covering to some extent - with another ledge above them - they are for all intense purposes out in the open in many respects so not unusual for there to be challenges there.  The previous female also had similar challenges so I think it's fair to say it's location as opposed to the pair because the previous 2 (Mom and Jack) were a different pair.  That being said I'm hopeful the 2 kids continue to do well. 

And they have a caring bunch of people to watch over them, they are even organizing a fledge watch and will be trained by CPF for it.

They didn't include an explanation of her name to me like they did with Milburn so I"m assuming it's just a name they like?  I will ask Marlene next time we chat to confirm.

New photos from CPF Facebook that Martin sent in - they are now on fledge watch.  There was an intruder againg a few days ago that came to the ledge - they think it's the old female again, she keeps 'intruding'.  She was chased off by both Aria and Indy but it looks like she may have gotten a peck or two in at Aria as she was protecting the kids.

Marlene says she is flying well and doing her usual things. Scarlet has been really aggressive when she comes in with food and neither Aria nor Indy can win a food fight with her apparently.   On the plus side, with it being fledge watch - there are a lot of people keeping an eye on Aria.

Here is the official report that goes with the photos:

Day 5 - SCARLET (red) and MILBURN (blue)

One fledge watcher reports: "Right now babies are on ledge. Milburn has been grooming himself getting off bits of fluff on wings and bum. No squawking. Just hanging out. Today's the day!!! I'm feeling it."

Earlier this week, fledge watchers reported an intruder at the nest. There was an altercation and ARIA was slightly injured. A hint of red can be seen on the right side of her head.

One fledge watcher reported on June 10: "Mom and dad both flew into the nest together just now 0820. I can confirm all 4 are ok!! One of the parents left food which Scarlet grabbed into the corner then now Milburn is sharing. Parents left food and didn't stay to feed. Scarlet is now sharing. Yay. It was a small meal and they appear to be done their snack. I was worried I had not seen mom but all good. Lots of squawking this morning so I waited around to see all ok."

No good news to report from here I'm afraid.  Territorial battles continue between aria and another female, they think it may be the former resident female.  There was a bad fight yesterday on the ledge, which ended up on the ground and Aria and the other female had to pulled apart by watchers.  Both flew off after that but this has been on going for two weeks now so I fear it's not going to end well for someone.

Will keep you posted when I hear anything else.  I wish I had better news to share.

Silver band on right leg..it might be the former resident female known as Mom - she's been parked outside the territory since Aria won it from her.  Not 100% since USFW bands are not easy to read but that is 'who' we think it is.  She only has the one band as she was banded coming through a banding site in the US many years ago.  That being said there are other females with only silver USFW that have been seen in other areas of the city so unless we can read the band...can't say for certain it's her.

Still no word about a second egg.  I expect that, like Beauty, her second is delayed due to the intruder she had to deal with.  I did email day before yesterday and Marlene said they were both fine and seemed to be guarding the single egg quite diligently.  Hopefully things stay calm and they can continue with nesting in peace.

Still no word about a second egg.  I expect that, like Beauty, her second is delayed due to the intruder she had to deal with.  I did email day before yesterday and Marlene said they were both fine and seemed to be guarding the single egg quite diligently.  Hopefully things stay calm and they can continue with nesting in peace.

Thanks for keeping us updated!

All is well here with Aria and her mate.  They haven't been able to do a count of eggs because since Aria laid the second egg someone has been on them.  That being said, Marlene said they are doing well and it's been peaceful.

Aria had a hatch today.  It seems after the battle with the old female, she only laid one more egg so there were two.   They are very excited and said this baby is very special given everything that happened.  I don't wish her harm but I hope she is done trying to interfere here.  

Anyway 3 little photos from Martin tonight.  May the little one grow strong and prosper.

Little one was rescued today, Mark checked him out and banded him - he's been named Noah and banded C/20.  Here's some photos of him from Saturday that Marlene sent me over the weekend.

Just received the rescue and banding photos!  He was stuck on a balcony.  There are more photos but I don't want to bombard you.  :happy:
