One tweak I'd like to request, please.  I'd like to see Rhea Mae's forum in the main section.  Just doesn't feel right to me for her to be under other raptor web cams.  Perhaps a topic called Rochester Offspring...Rhea Mae & Tiago could have a thread...Quest...grandeyases... 

Respectfully submitted...Ei

Hotel, foundation hatch webcam plan to keep chicks safe

What was once an urban phenomenon is now an annual tradition thanks to the Canadian Peregrine foundation.

On June 12, two peregrine falcon chicks were banded at the Toronto Sheraton Centre Hotel.

The fledglings, which nest on the forty-third floor of the hotel, were named Kevin and Dina after CITY-TV on-air personalities Kevin Frankish and Dina Pugliese, who participated in the event.

This is the fifth year that falcons have been banded at the hotel.

It’s only the tenth year where falcons have been observed to nest in Downtown high-rise buildings.

Another pair of falcons has been nesting atop the building at 18 King St. E. since 1995 and produce offspring each year.

Banding is a long established procedure by the provincial and federal wildlife resources to band the young peregrine with leg bands in an effort to assist with management and migration and monitoring of the young birds.

Mark Nash, director of the foundation, explains that after the baby falcons are banded, ”they spend about 45 days at the nest prior to them taking their maiden flight.

“They are young and overweight and because of this excessive weight, and since they have never flown before, end up coming to the ground. On the ground they are unable to gain altitude again and the foundation has been actively involved in monitoring and performing the services of a ‘Fledge watch’ at all the urban nest sites.

“Our purpose,” Nash continues, “is to work with the ministry of natural resources and rescue these baby fledglings, check them over for any obvious signs of injury and after they have been checked out we bring them back to the rooftops to repeat that scenario. We are rescuing birds from the sidewalks or roadways two or three times during their first flights.”

The Canadian Peregrine Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to the restoration and recovery of endangered birds of prey. They work with many partners who assist them with this program. One sponsor is the Sheraton Hotel. Hotel rep Cynthia Bond explains why the hotel is involved.

“Sheraton is proud to be foster parents of the baby falcons. In addition to giving donations, we also monitor the webcams for the falcons, and from a hotel perspective we do not allow our window washers to go anywhere near the nest when the mother is on the nest or when the baby falcons are waiting to take flight.”

Bond continues, “When we were first notified that the birds were in the building we were delighted to work with the ministry of natural resources to ensure the birds’ well-being.

“When you look at the volunteers at the foundation and see the people putting so much passion into this how can you not become involved? It’s something very special to have the birds in an urban landscape.”

The Canadian Peregrine Foundation also held a banding on June 4 at the Mississauga Executive Centre site. There are other urban sites in Etobicoke and Scarborough where they are waiting for the birds to “reclutch.”

These birds failed in their first attempt to hatch eggs but if they are successful in this “reclutch” and hatching there may be another banding event in August.

Donna, I'm confused. These were the the fledglings from 2007.  They were Tiago and Wind's only two before Rhea Mae took over the Sheraton.

This just in from Big Frank:

Re: RHea Mae 08-17-2009

Jan reported one adult,in the area saw the band and it was Tiago. She also saw
one juvenile which she thought had dark tape. Later she saw one on the
pipe,definetly adult as was said and also a Juvenile with a white tape on
it,which would be Osler,so likely 2 of the juvies are still in the area. Ive
already seen a juvenile Peregrine where I count migrating raptors. While the
bird seen wasnt necessarily migrating,since there is no nest in the vicinity
that was successful this season,its a wandering juvenile.

One more from this morning...I think it might be Rhea Mae & Tiago...looks like some bowing down by the nest tray...(edit: wishing I had movie maker for the Sheraton-adding 30 seconds prior when the bowing started by the standpipe)

   

And someone back on the standpipe this evening...

!!! Both Adults are back on the ledge!
August 19, 2009 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre
CPF Postmaster Reports:

With many thanks to Eileen and her photos taken, we have adult activity on the ledge.

I see the ledge has been busy again, which is nice to see! I caught a couple of pictures of an adult on the standpipe Monday and today.

Today’s morning pictures show another bird ( I think an adult) on the nest tray & some bowing between the two, so I’m guessing it was Rhea Mae & Tiago.  And someone was back roosting on the standpipe this evening.

Eileen :thumbsup: :clap: :notworthy: :bow:

 An Early Christmas Present at the Sheraton!
December 23, 2009 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre
Jan Chudy Reports:

Both adults spent a great part of the day together either on the nest ledge or around the area.  It was heart-warming to see them together.  As I write this shortly after noon on Christmas Eve, they are both together again.  One in the nest box and one on a nearby ledge.

Merry Christmas, Everyone.

Both adults have spent quite a lot of time on the Sheraton ledge and the neighbouring perches since the start of the year.  I have also been seeing adults at Mount Sinai, but never all four adults at the same time.  Today, at 1 p.m. as I checked the locations, two adults are on the Sheraton nest ledge and two adults are on the south louvres of Mount Sinai!

!!! First Egg at Toronto Sheraton Centre Hotel
March 23, 2010 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre
Linda Woods Reports:

Many thanks to the Folks of Rochester Falcon Forum for the quick email this morning. They were happy to report that in the wee hours of the morning, Rhea Mae put down her first egg of the 2010 nesting season.

I had been watching the webcam last evening and Rhea had been spending many nights sitting at the nest ledge. But last night she was on the nest tray. After dark she climbed into the tray and layed down. This morning, egg # 1!

Many thanks to everyone who emailed me and gave me the heads up.

You know, I've been watching the Sheraton all day...I knew she had to have another egg under there...but I was aggravated with the bright light, so I shut it off.  Then I read Carol's post & decided to try again...opened it up to Tiago on the eggs & Rhea Mae arriving on the other end of the ledge...next frame was this one!

Just spotted this over on the CPF site

!!! 3 EGGS!
March 28, 2010 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre
Linda Woods Reports:

An extended visit to the Sheraton nest ledge confirmed the band numbers of the adults, Black on Black, 29 over H, for Tiago and  Black on Red, P over T, for Rhea Mae.

And long after my camera battery gave out on the “stand-by” mode, Tiago finally moved off the eggs to reveal 3 eggs. Rhea Mae was quick to return to her time incubating. Tiago didn’t waste anytime leaving the nest ledge. Just like his dad.

Ei-I found this on the Kfalconcam site-

On August 16th, I was able to finally be at the right place at the
right time and see the leg bands on this female that has been
fraternizing with Tiago. Perhaps, Tiago is just following in his
father's footsteps ( Windwhistler) and she has followed. With the
assistance of fellow peregrine lover across the border together we
were able to ID this female peregrine. Her name is RHEA MAE and she is
a 2006 Hatch from Rochester, New York.

Then I found this:

Windwhistler and Mandy, a male and female peregrine falcon couple, have been residents at 18 King since 2002, says longtime CPF volunteer Linda
Woods.
There is a particularly urgent need for a webcam at the moment, as Windwhistler and Mandy have reached a pivotal moment in their relationship. Windwhistler has been straying to
a girlfriend, Wind, who has a nest at the Sheraton Hotel at Queen and University. Woods says CPF volunteers hope to use the webcams to keep a close eye on the peregrines’ activities in order to find out if and at what nest a successful incubation has occurred.

And wasn't Tiago with Wind before Rhea Mae?  Hmmmm...

Post by: carly on 29-Mar-10, 06:11:33 am
Tiago took over his father's site - he was born at the King street site.  I think his mother was Mandy but I'll have to look it up as I'm not 100% going on middle aged memory alone!.  His dad of course was the famous Windwhistler - the bigamous male that ran both King and Sheraton sites simultaneously.  

Windwhistler was born at my site in Etobicoke at the now Sun Life building.  His mother was Alberta and father was Toby.  Alberta was born at the Wainright breeding centre in Alberta (hence the name) and was brought to Hamilton as a foster chick for release.  That's as much as I can remember without looking it up..lol!

I know there is a database of band #'s from the mid-west, not sure what the URL is.  Maybe someone could post it?  It's sometimes hard to track down a band #, since there is no universal list.

I know I have it in my research folder at home-but it's only mid-west peregrines.  The other site is the Patuxent bird banding lab (again, link at home)...but you have to send in a band # and wait for a response.  A few other state sites list the bands used in a given year in their annual peregrine report, but it's spotty.

Not sure if she has been seen this year.  I hope so.  

Wind appeared at Mt Sinai Hospital last year after a one year absence (it's not far from the Sheraton actually!) with a new mate however due to rooftop repairs they were not successful nesting.  I heard the repairs are ongoing for this year as well as the entire roof has to be replaced and given it's a Hospital, it's not something that can be postponed without jeopardizing the safety of patients and equipment inside.  

She has been sighted though, a few weeks ago Linda said two were on site and last week someone saw one on site so not sure what is happening there.  Im sure Linda will update the site once she has something to report!

Frank Butson Reports:
Thanks to an email from my friend Leslie Kinrys,I was alerted to a posting on the Tommy Thompson Park (Leslie Street Spit)banding station blog which reported seeing a banded Peregrine Falcon for most of one day perched in a tree,near their banding station. This sighting took place sometime between April 7th and April 13th.  The band number was clearly seen and photographed(a photo may be added later) which was black over black,30/Y. CPF was quickly able to provide the identity of this bird. The Peregrine was named Stormin,who was banded in Toronto at The Sheraton Centre  Hotel on May 28th 2009. It’s great to hear back about one of the Peregrines which CPF  helped band and is most rewarding for the volunteers who helped take care of the Peregrines during fledging time and the staff at the Sheraton Centre Hotel itself,who are such good stewards of their Peregrine family.

I agree, the cam closest to the eggs is bad...too bright, can't see anything. What did they do?

I think the cam is broken...I think it got stuck on the night setting so any sunlight blows out the picture, and it's a sunny ledge most of the time.  We'll just have to count on the on site watchers to count beaks during the day...should start hatching end of this week.

Definite problems with the Sheraton Cameras.  Received the following two emails from Linda Woods:

Hi Carol,
No luck with rebooting, I think we may not have internet anymore. Just as I got to the nest, they did a hand off of the nest, and I clearly saw all four eggs.  Perhaps next week at the earliest for a hatch. I'll have to check everyday.  Rhea Mae and Tiago are doing a good job.

Hi There,
 A quick check on the Sheraton and Tiago was doing his time on the eggs. They like to keep tight under the camera, so even seeing them live can be difficult.  But I saw no sign of hatch this morning. No egg shells yet.
SOON. - Linda W.

Linda attempted to reboot the system but was unable to.  Hopefully it will be back on line soon.

  2 little babies

April 30, 2010 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre
Linda Woods Reports:

Back to the Sheraton this morning to try and resolve the camera problem. A quick peek into the nest ledge and there I saw two parts of an egg and Rhea Mae munching on another half of shell.  Darn it! I didn’t  have my pocket camera with me, so photos will have to wait until this week-end.  I expect the other two eggs to hatch this weekend.

By the way the Sheraton cameras are back, of course. I got the right hand camera ,Osler cam, going this afternoon, and the nest box camera this evening. Keep an eye for camera pics for the chickies.
Linda

OK, we have our assignment.  Be sure to save and post any good pics you might catch from RM&T's nest box, especially pics of the little ones.  I'll share them with Linda.

Thanks everyone!

I asked her about it awhile ago and she thought it might have to do with new, very reflective buildings that have been built near the Sheraton.  Possibly causing all the light.

It doesn't seem to be more light to me-the Osler cam doesn't look any brighter.  I suspect the aperture settings are off kilter-like when our team was tweaking the new cam to get better night vision-it sometimes didn't reset in the morning & the picture was overexposed.  But I don't know if it's a camera adjustment, software, auto adjustment sensor...lots of things it could be.

Hey Everyone;
I was to the nest site today around 11:00am ? and waited for a handing off. I missed it trying to confirm leg bands off the male. The two of them are really quick about it. I tried to take a picture but the actual camera blocks a clear view of the little ones. Rhea Mae and Tiago have nested in the lower left hand side of the nest box, as they did last year. This makes it difficult to take an actual photo. Altho the image on the webcam is better angle, it is a lot different actually viewing the nest live. The lens has a lot of dust and dirt on it, throwing off a lot glare. I hope to clean it when we band the birds.
I could see two chickies... oh so sweet and so teeny tiny.... but cannot confirm a third. But I will take the word and observations of all the eagles eyes watching the webcam. THANKS everyone!
If someone has noted a feeding schedule, pls let me know, so I can time it to be there for the next feed.  :thumbsup:

I definitely saw 3.  There was another feeding around 3...so every couple of hours...and there were 3 heads for sure.  Of course, I got home & went to copy the pictures off my flash drive...and nothing!  I was in such a hurry to leave I guess I copied them to the common drive at work instead of my flash...tomorrow for sure!

I believe "Wind" is currently nesting at Mt.Sinai Hospital, on University Ave, Just up the street from the Sheraton Nest site. Don't have an ID on the male as yet. Need a power scope for that. Wind paid us a visit last year when we observing the Mt.Sinai nest site. She came very close to us. We we dove for cover, she came to rest on a area, where I was able to confirm her leg bands. Friday, the same person was again observing the pair and confirmed the band colours of the female, but not the numbers. But given creatures of habit, her resting spots are the same as last year, so I'm confident that it is Wind nesting at Mt.Sinai Hospital.  That would be wonderful if it is Windwhistler, as her mate. Both Wind and Windwhistler were hatched in 1998, so that is pushing the age. Windwhistler was hatched in Etobicoke,( Toronto )

I'm glad to know about Wind, too.  I was of mixed feelings, when Rhea Mae took over, as I was thrilled to see her, but worried about Wind.  I sure would be happy to know that Windwhistler was with Wind.  They made a good couple for a long time.  But, with two families for so many years, Windwhistler may have worn himself out!  :hysterical:  Anyway, thanks for the updates from cam watchers and Linda Woods aka Wind!

Linda, thank you so much!  I am so glad that Wind is around.  I was thrilled to know where Rhea Mae is but sad when she displaced Wind.  It is a story we are so familiar with now with our birds.  It also gives hope that Mariah is around, which I think is the case!

Linda Woods Reports:

The three Sheraton Centre peregrine chicks are eating well and sleeping lots.  The fourth egg is still unhatched and at this time, I’m not sure it will. If it is going to hatch, it should be with in the next day or two.

Rhea Mae and Tiago continue to be good parents.

An update from Linda...

 Eating Well.
May 07, 2010 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre
Linda Woods Reports:

The three Sheraton Centre peregrine chicks are eating well and sleeping lots.  The fourth egg is still unhatched and at this time, I’m not sure it will. If it is going to hatch, it should be with in the next day or two.

Rhea Mae and Tiago continue to be good parents.

You know, I am assigned to Toronto overnights a lot in my flight schedule.  I cannot wait for a chance to go below the Sheraton City Centre Toronto to catch a glimpse of Rhea Mae flying out of the hotel to play with her children!

John Carlos - You can get in touch directly with Linda who monitors the Toronto Sheraton Falcons.  She is "windatmyback" on our forum, and you can click on the email icon and possiboly meet up with her.

If you are there for any length of time, she could use all the help she can get when the young-uns start to fledge.  They don't have a group like we do in Rochester, and it so difficult with all those buildings.

I second that!  After seeing what the watchers have to go through in Toronto, our watches have been relatively easy!  So many tall buildings over there and the nest boxes are spread out!  And then there are the reflective windows!

That ledge the eyeas  is on looks dangerous.  I'm not familiar with that nest site.  Is it safe, or can they  fall through an opening?   Or am I looking a misleading picture?   Didn't Rhea Mae nest there last year ?

That ledge is quite safe and good for running back and forth from cam to cam. I love this nest site because of the running room. She sure did nest there last year. Don't worry, they are fine. Wait til banding.  :o

And not just Rhea Mae & Tiago-this is RM&T's 3rd year (I'm pretty sure), but that ledge has been successfully in use for many years before that.  I know of Wind & Windwhistler for quite a few years...might have been others before that.

So after a day of searching for Quest and yet again not finding her, your traveling road crew ended up at the Sheraton in a room on the 42nd floor just below the nest site.  Our first excitement happened when both Rhea Mae and Tiago flew off of the Sheraton and flew together in front of our window.  WooHoo!  Love those Peregrines!   :clap:

Both landed on the scaffolding on the right side of the very tall BMO building across the way.  Seems to be a favorite spot, where they have a wonderful view of their scrape. 

Right now Tiago is on top of the Sheraton and Rhea Mae is across the street on the BMO building.

Now the Road Crew is relaxing and winding down from a long day on the prowl.  Lisa McK is mesmerized over the colors fluctuating up and down the CN Tower.  :wow:   Kathy O is concocting unusual beverages, playing bartender.  :martini: Joyce is enjoying these concoctions.  :penguinspin: Yours truly is Laughing and Laughing.   :hysterical:

Tomorrow will be a fun day spent with our friends from Canada banding Rhea Mae and Tiago's 3 eyases. 

Oh, my there's a full moon!

Oh, back to our story.  We cannot wait to find out what the babies will be named and will report as soon as we find out.

Joyce will share pics of the full moon later.  Maybe.

Nite all.......

I was fortunate enough to be able to go the banding of Rhea Mae and Tiago's eyases today.  It was really great meeting the "Rochester Gang" after 6 years of only knowing their personalities through the kfalconcam and the rfalconcam forums!  I also talked to Linda Woods (of the Canadian Peregrine Foundation) and told her that I would like to try to be an official watcher this year.  I took photos of the banding and will post a few eventually.  I had a great time -- it took my mind off my sadness for a little while, but I was really tired and had to leave before the end.  Anyway, it was a truly significant experience in my life and I will remember it for a long, long time!  Especially the kakking and the flailing of those wonderful big yellow feet!!!

From the Sheraton site--- great name, Ladies!!!!!


Linda Woods Reports:

This past Friday, the three little ones were banded and given names.Rhea Mae and Tiago have three males this year.Detailed information on the occasion will be posted here along with many photos of the newly names chicks and VIP’s in attendance.  The names of the three boys are as follows,

Star- Scribe:  named by The Sheraton Centre Hotel

Lorenzo:  named  by Jan Chudy

Legacy:  named by our good friends and dedicated Falcon Watchers from Rochester, New York. These ladies followed and rescued Rhea Mae when she was just a fledgling.

Today a check on the three boys, I arrived just in time for lunch.

I like the name Legacy a lot and think it is quite appropriate for one of Rhea Mae's offspring.  It would work at least equally as well for one of Beauty and Archer's kids.  I looked for a synonym but couldn't find anything that worked.  "Heritage" came closest to conveying the meaning but isn't much of a name.

Linda Woods Reports (on the CPF site):

These images taken this morning and this afternoon.  Good time for a morning nap by the stand pipe, and since that was good this morning, it was good enough for this afternoon.  Today the oldest is 36 days of age and should be ready for it’s first flight any day.

First Fledge!

June 05, 2010 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre
Linda Woods Reports:

Toronto Sheraton Centre has had their first fledge of the season. Star took flight sometime early this morning, Unfortunately it was only seen by his siblings.  Numerous sweeps of the area throughout the day and at 8p.m. there was still no indication as to where this little guy has flown.  The adults were not  giving up any secrets either. Food went to the ledge this evening at 7p.m. Legacy had his fill and even a second helping. Lorenzo was content not to partake of the evening meal and kept to himself at the other end of the ledge. Lots of flapping by Lorenzo and looks like he’ll be the next to take flight.

!!! First to Fledge, “Star” - Still missing.
June 06, 2010 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre
Mark Nash Reports:

A quick check of the nest ledge early this moring still has little Lorenzo and Legacy on the nest ledge. Heavy rains and wind last night made for a very wet, blustery and cold night and still its around 11 degrees calceus this morning. In comparison to the hot humid weather that we’ve had over the past day, it’s actually very cool!

The search is on to locate ”Star”, the first to peregrine to fledge this season. What a heck of a night to spend your first night away from home!

Just got word that Watchers Zoe and Big Frank will be joining Linda today to search for Scribe-Star.  Let's hope for the best.  I really hate those premature fledges!  Wish I lived closer.   :(

Post by: Dumpsterkitty on 06-Jun-10, 11:24:56 am
Keeping my talons crossed.  Fledglings from this nest have wound up in the strangest places over the years.  I think it was one of Wind's juvies that went down an air conditioning duct and had to be rescued from inside the building.  And, of course, Lily trying to take the bus to Buffalo  :rofl:


Title: Re: Rhea Mae and Tiago's Webcam - Toronto - Canadian Peregrine Foundation
Post by: Annette on 06-Jun-10, 12:42:27 pm
I just read this report

STAR HAS BEEN FOUND
June 06, 2010 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre
Linda Woods Reports:
GOOD NEWS!
 
Star, the missing fledgling has been found! Not too far from home either.
Harry, one of the dedicated volunteers found him a short time ago sitting on the one of the window ledges directly across from the Hotel on Richmond St.
Thanks Harry!  and everyone else that came out in the rain to once again search the area.
Al-tho, not the height of the 43 floors of the Sheraton Hotel, he is still 14 stories above street level.
This building that Star is resting on, is vacant and ready for major renovation. It’s an older building with very deep window ledges that wrap the entire building. That is a blessing,as the bird can walk the entire diameter, sheltering it’self from the intense sun we had yesterday, as well as the wind and rain from last night.
Rhea Mae and Tiago have Star in sight  and it appears that Star has a bit of a crop, so he may have had a meal.
This also explains the position Rhea Mae was last evening, cleaning prey. Direct sight line for Star.
Legacy should be the next to fly. Very little down can be seen under his wings and lots of flapping and running of the ledge yesterday.

I wrote to Linda & Frank thanking them for sharing the news of Scribe-Star.  I mentioned that the three Cleveland Terminal Tower ledglings were also blown off their ledge on Sunday morning.  All were found and placed back at home base.

Here is a Frank's message and a video.  You'll enjoy seeing how Rhea Mae and Tiago are good parents. 

From Big Frank -

"Glad you enjoyed the video,and that all of the chicks that got blown around were OK. I wondered how the many sites around the areas of the storms made out. Here is a video clip of Star where he landed. It's a short not so upclose view, but it tells the story of the day well.

http://tinypic.com/player.php?v=2dbpgsi&s=6 

Please feel free to pass this around or post as you see fit. I havent posted this one to the CPF site as the quality isnt so great but I dont mind it being shared at all.

Doing a quick count this morning CPF is following 22 chicks with a few more sites to have possible hatches still. So far Star at the Sheraton is the only one to fledge.  Frank"

From the Sheraton:!

!!! Way To Go, Star, First Flight For Legacy
June 08, 2010 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre

Linda Woods Reports:

After over nighting   at the old day care, Star, finally made another flight.  He ended up on the Keg Restaurant.  For many years now, volunteers have wondered what it might be like to enjoy a meal at the Keg while watching a fledgling on an adjacent building.  But once again we are teased as we watch from the outside, while Star stood directly over the entrance. I found star shortly after arriving on site.

 The group of volunteers had to endeavour the day around the Keg, with the wonderful aromas of Grilled foods, knowing Star was there but could not see him.  I guess with all the BBQ smoke, enough was enough for the little guy and he took flight again around 7p.m.

He came towards York Street and banked left and headed south along York St. to Adelaide and gaining height. As soon as he turned left at Adelaide Street. I started to question myself, ” was that really a Juvie and not a peregrine wanna be pigeon?”  I last saw him gaining height heading towards the Lombard building on Adelaide ( party hat).  I lost track of him.  Bruce and I started searching this general area. I retraced my steps, re visioned the flight path.  A ha! I found him, and good for him. He had made it all the way up to the west facing side of the Lombard building and landed dead centre of the west facing glass panel window, sitting at the base. Dead centre. The sun was shining on this area and when I looked. He was sitting straight up and looking proud as punch.  Good Job, good strong flight.

From that area, he took a few more flights west, ending up on the Dominon Building at Adelaide and University, tried to head for the DBRS across the street, circled back and headed west towards University. At one time Star had given Marion and I a scare. He was last seen headed for the  Shangra La construction site, but had circlled back and ended up on a tight window ledge behind the Dominion Building.

Legacy ( Red ) Took first Today and I was not there to see it.  But Zoe and Harry did.  At last light for the day, Legacy was still on the west, south west corner of  the Bell building on Adelaide St. Where he had been for the most of the day. This building is high, so a good flight for him.

Lorenzo ( yellow) the youngest was fed on the ledge, this evening around 7:00p.m.  He is the youngest and I guess he’ll enjoy the room to himself for the next day or so until he takes his first flight.

That's odd that when I looked just now at the CPF site it says that Lorenzo (red) fledged and that Legacy (yellow) hasn't yet and was fed on the ledge.  They must have changed it since you posted, Jeanne.  Confusing as to who else fledged.   ???

!!! Two flying very well, one to go
June 09, 2010 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre
Linda Woods Reports:
This evening, huge wonderful flights by the two fledged juveniles, Star and …. Legacy. Wow, they are keeping their height, while Rhea Mae and Tiago kept a watch on the ledge.
 
Lorenzo, who has not taken his first flight as yet, has stayed on the ledge this evening. Good thing the weather is not the best to take a first flight. Fog and rain today kept activity at a low today.
This evening after the rain stopped and the fog moved out. The two brothers took this opportunity to stretch their wings, giving guests in the Club Lounge a bit of a show.
Staff are commenting “we know when the chicks fly by, they fly close to the windows” The adult peregrines keep a distance.
Volunteers also had the opportunity to see an episode of
“Running of the Gulls” as Tiago moved them out of the area and away from the fledglings.
Hopefully sunny skies tomorrow may entice the remaining peregrine chick into his first flight.
It was a good day… after the rain stopped.


!!! Lorenzo Flies!
June 10, 2010 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre
Harry Crawford Reports:
Just after 9am today, Lorenzo took his first flight.  It wasn’t
elegant.  I think he tried to get back to the nest ledge and did a
gentle face plant on the window just to the left of the nest ledge.
He then slid down to the edge at the bottom and flapped for about a
minute.  Then he flew over to the bottom of the ‘e’, first one in
‘Centre’.  When I repositioned he had disappeared.

Later, from City Hall, I had all three chicks in view.
Lorenzo was on the north roof of 120 Adelaide.  He was running back and
forth and flapping.  The other two were on the north roof
ledge of 130 Adelaide, flying and playing tag.  Lorenzo eventually
moved to the northeast corner and according to Jan, was joined by
one of the brothers.

 Lorenzo is slow moving
June 12, 2010 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre
Linda Woods Reports:

Our last peregrine to fledge ( Lorenzo ) is still keeping lower than the Sheraton Hotel. Last evening we had left him on the east side of 120 Adelaide St.  This morning I could not find him, he had moved off of that perch. I left the area around 11:45 am and returned around 1:30. and joined up with another volunteer. She had spotted him on the east side of 120 again.

After the rain we decided to view from the a higher elevation and spotted two juveniles on the north east side of the vacant building on Richmond St.  An adult was on the north west corner.

After a while the well flighted juvenile took off along with both adults. Adults returned and to try and nudge our slow flyer into the air without any luck. Eventually both adults took off again.  Lorenzo then decided he did not like being by himself and flew to the next building eastward ( 85 Richmond ) He scooted across the roof top a few times trying to find the adults. Around 7p.m. he took off southward along Sheppard Street and we lost in the mist and the flat light. We repositioned to ground level and did a search of the area. We could not find any indication where he ended up. No peregrines in view. We think he either circled back or is in the area of Sheppard St and Adelaide at 7:30p.m.

!!! Flying well
June 14, 2010 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre
Linda Woods Reports:

Star, Legacy and Lorenzo appear to be flying well at this stage. Two of the juveniles return to the nest ledge regularly in search of a meal from one of the adults.

  They are still using the hotel roof top and neighbouring roof tops for shelter from the sun and rain and of course, more meals. Today they were spotted in the direct area of the Sheraton Hotel and I am sure they are giving the hotel guests an air show in the evening showing off the newly acquired flight skills   :clap:

 Juvie has some fun
June 21, 2010 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre
Jan Chudy Reports:

Scanning the usual spots at 11:40, I found a juvie on the middle bar of the “S”.  As I watched him, he started walking up the slope of the letter;  he then slid back down.  He obviously thought this was great fun because he did it another 3 or 4 times!  He stayed on the letter until 1 p.m. at which time he took off and went up to the south side of the roof of the hotel.  Checking at 1:55 p.m. he had gone and I was unable to find him.

Hear he may be a first time dad this year :2thumbsup:

Hurricane was hatched at the Sheraton but not to Rhea Mae.  He is Wind and, I think, Windwhistler's son

  jeanne--thanks for the info on hurricane----it makes perfect sense that
he'd be the son of wind  and windwhistler----who else is he related to him ? do you know?
(maybe a great great grandpa named tornado, ha ha) :thumbsup:

I don't know all that much about the Toronto family trees, but I believe Tiago-Rhea Mae's mate-is the son of Windwhistler and Mandy when he was the tiercel at the Sheraton and King Street nests at the same time.

Hurricane and his mate O'connor of Ohio successfully raised 2 offspring this year - his natural first offspring.  However he was a foster dad last year to the 3 MEC chicks who lost their mum in a territorial fight a little after they were born.  We were all excited to finally see him have some offspring of his own.  He's been at Osler for many years but it seems to be a challenge for a female to keep that site for more than a season or two.  There was a territorial fight again this year but O'connor held her own and they raised one female and one male and both fledged successfully  :handshake:

One of Mariah's offspring's offspring has been spotted.  Rhea Mae's 2009 male STORMIN (and M&K's grandfalcon) has been sighted by BIG FRANK.

"I walked out my side door,on the way to raptor watch at Rosetta McClain Gardens today at about 8am. What to my wonderous eyes did appear but a Peregrine Falcon eating a Northern Flicker atop a neighbors tv anetena,at Hollis and Birchmount. Immediately I set to trying to get the band number. First I noticed the obvious it was an adult. I thought at first it was a female,but indeed it was a male. Saw coloured tape over the USFW band,which was blue. CPF puts coloured tape over the USFW bands,when the young are banded so we can more easily identify which young Peregrine is which at fledge watch time.  Thought I read one band number but on review of the photos the band number is 30/Y Black background White letters/numbers,which means Canadian..confirms its one CPF banded.  I did a quick search and this Peregrine is Stormin,who was banded on May 28th,2009 at The Sheraton Hotel in downtown Toronto. Stormin had been spotted at the Leslie Street Spit earlier this spring and photographed  April 22 of 2010. I watched as Stormin devoured the Flicker,before ummm getting to flight weight if you know what I mean,and taking off to the west. Likely spotted again about an hour later by Pat and Nancy at Warden and Danforth. The photos are abit bloody so dont look if you are gentile. Have a stack more pics but this is a sample. The first shows the blue tape,the 2nd shows a beautiful shot of Stormin and lastly a reasonable shot of the band. Rest assured I was able to see in that and other photos the band numbers/letters.
I will post to the CPF website tonight on the Sheraton site,and on the International News,so the Rochester Ladies see it for sure. - - Frank"

Hi Dot!  How ARE you?  Healing still?  Anyway, I am so happy that you raised this question, as I keep asking myself the same thing.  None of "our" falcons are venturing beyond the Great Lakes that we know of.

It is so great to hear sightings of our legacy falcons once they have become adults!  Carol sent Frank a nice thank you and he sent back three more photos and mentioned the video Carly shared. 

In Frank's words...  "Here is a short video clip I did, the other photos I have are much the same as the ones I sent... 2509 shows a very full Stormin.  2469 shows the long view. Fortunately the neighbors understood when I explained what I was doing. I will take them a decent photo and CPF postcard with info about the bird that visited them. --Frank"

THANK YOU BIG FRANK!   We appreciate all your watch reports!

I've been going through my old stuff, looking for information for Ei and l'm now going through 2006, reliving the sadness of Mariah's injury and the joy of watching three beautiful eyases; Rhea Mae, Aura and Sabrina.  and who could forget Kaver becoming a super dad, taking care of Mariah and his three young ones.  I'm posting this here, because I came across a poem written by my friend Dale P for Rhea Mae when she was a young fledgling here in Rochester.  I love this.  Thank you Dale.   :clap:

Sabrina's been a rapier and a saber:
Early able as a blade to stoop or stab at prey and play.

Aural Aura's howling for a feral fowl,
Rare and feathered, rouses, blares in weather fair or foul.

But I am Rhea Mae;
Like my ma Mariah,
Marauding, massive, regal.
Dark as Kaver!
And here, from the black stack roaming back.

Great poem! What a year it was.  Mariah's injury was heartwrenching and Kaver's devotion was heart warming.  Both the reason for many tears.  Rhea Mae and all the babies sure have come from amazing stock! 

Aural Aura!  She was definitely vocal!  And probably gave Rhea Mae practice for those stomping skills we have seen during banding for her babies!

This is a post on the Sheraton site.  Other sightings included.  The watcher thinks Hunter may be with Wind.  My question is where is Ranger, if that is so.

 Downtown/Midtown Toronto Summary
December 25, 2010 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre
Harry Crawford Reports:

I developed a short summary of my involvement with the Downtown and Midtown Toronto peregrines from a volunteer’s perspective. Brief information on some of the other sites is included. The purpose for doing this was to accompany Christmas cards. Since it covers several sites, I have placed it here in the Sheraton site postings as this is where my year began.

Harry and the Peregrines – 2010 Summary

The phenomenal success of last year has repeated itself again this year. Of the available nine chicks, eight survived to the end of the watches. We also had an additional site to monitor. I worked the two downtown sites as well as Yonge and Eglinton. Because of the G20 Summit, we were issued photo id cards in case the watches overlapped the G20. Fortunately this was not the case.

The first watch was at the Sheraton Centre. Rhea Mae and Tiago had three chicks – two males, Star and Lorenzo and a female, Legacy. Star apparently likes opera. He flew into the underground parking garage, perched on a pipe and eventually flew out again. A rescue was not needed. He has a daughter this year. I attended the banding at this site. Our MPP, Glen Murray, also attended and made a nice speech. It was good to get his support. Next year, the watch here is going to be more difficult now that Jan has retired and moved to France. It was great to have her high up in her perch in First Canadian Place and in almost constant radio contact. Hurricane, born here in 2004, is the resident male at the William Osler Health Centre in Etobicoke.

The next watch was at 18 King East. Erin and her mate had two chicks – Malik a male and Zera a female. We still have not identified the adult male. Zera was trapped on a glass balcony and had to be rescued. Both chicks did well and kept their height. We have word about previous chicks. Jasmine from 2001 was severely injured and had to be put down. Ely from 2008 is raising a family in central New York State. Majesty from 2002 [one of the Toronto Five] is raising another family in Flint Michigan. She is also the last survivor from this hatch. Her parents were Ponce-Kingsley and Victoria.

Just when we thought the watches were over, Mark got a call from Toronto Animal Services that a baby peregrine had to be rescued from a glass balcony near Yonge and Eglinton. Ranger and Hunter used to be the resident falcons in this area. Clearly these were different adults. The nest is located at 2200 Yonge. An emergency watch had to be set up quickly. Frank, from the Etobicoke site, took charge. Most of the downtown team participated along with Bruce and Lyn, who lives in a nearby condo. All four chicks had to be rescued with one not making it. The survivors are two females – Cyclone and Tara, and a male – Typhoon. We took the opportunity to have the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources folks band the birds when we had them in hand. Also, Lyn kept them in her condo when necessary.

At Mt. Sinai, Wind and her partner had two clutches of four eggs. Nothing hatched. There is some suspicion that the male may Hunter from Yonge and Eglinton which was another failed nest for several years. Up there, they were on the Canadian Tire building.

In Etobicoke at the Sun Life complex, Angel and Jack had three male chicks – Blackberry, Dot-com and Mercedes. Three rescues were necessary, including Blackberry from a balcony. OMNR folks later let us know that a male peregrine chick was found dead in Guelph. It was Blackberry. Mackenzie from 2009 has a mate in Burlington.

In Ottawa, Diana and Conner laid two clutches. Unfortunately nothing hatched. Nihei from 2009 was injured and died in Quebec. Zanar from 2004 has a successful nest on the Ogdensburg bridge with four chicks.

At Yonge and Bloor, the pair from last year remain. They did disappeard for a couple of months during the summer but that was probably due to the number of building cranes in the area. No nesting attempts were observed. They tend to hang out at the CIBC building at Yonge and Bloor, the apartment tower in the Manulife Centre and the TD Waterhouse building at 77 Bloor West. There was no evidence that they were around the Four Seasons Hotel this year.

In Rochester, they have a new pair of adults – Archer and Beauty. From what I gather, they successfully raised three chicks this year. The nest box was moved to the top of the Times Square building downtown. The Kodak cameras were moved there as well.

The red-tailed hawks at Queen’s Park are still around and have raised a family again this year. They can now be found on the tallest of three pine trees just east of the east flag pole on the south side of the Legislature.

The turkey vultures in the Bloor and Sherborne area are still around. They are often seen in the Yonge and Bloor area being chased by peregrines. Large flocks of these birds often pass overhead. Welcome to once a week garbage pickup.

Ely from 2008 is raising a family in central New York State.

Majesty from 2002 [one of the Toronto Five] is raising another family in Flint Michigan. She is also the last survivor from this hatch. Her parents were Ponce-Kingsley and Victoria.

Zanar from 2004 has a successful nest on the Ogdensburg bridge with four chicks.


Where is Ely?

Is Majesty Mariah's sister?

Zanar is Valiant's (Sabrina) mate?  Does anyone know about the 4 chicks?

Do you mean is Majesty Cabot-Sirocco's sister?  They have the same parents, Ponce-Kingsley and Victoria.  She would be Mariah's sister-in-law.

I had heard from June who heard from the DEC lady in Ogdensburg that one of the eyases fell into the river before fledging.  Thankfully a man had been kayaking and came across the struggling youngster.  He reached his paddle out and the young falcon climbed up onto it and was brought to a rahabber.  Soon after the eyas was given a clean bill of health and returned to the nest area.  Another happy ending.   :clap:

!!! Territorial activity is heating up!
March 01, 2011 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre
CPF Postmaster Reports:

A quick update with a report of our activities yesterday- (March 2nd), when the CPF head office received a call from the Solar Window washing team of a downed peregrine on the roof of 144 Front St. west here in Toronto, that had been injured after colliding with a building across the street. Mark was dispatched to meet with the building management and one of he staff from Solar who quickly got him to the roof inspect the injured raptor. Upon his arrival, the raptor was quickly identified as an adult male Sharpe-shinned hawk that was actually hiding on the flat top roof of the building under some large cables in the south east corner below the roof retaining wall. Further investigation of the happening, it appears that the male Sharpie may have been pursued by one of the territorial adult peregrines (likely from the Toronto Sheraton Centre nest) and driven into the building face in an effort to escape from the peregrine(s).

The Sharpie was then able to make it to the roof top across the street at 144 Front Street, and was laterally grounded (and hiding) from the adult female peregrine who was perched on another roof top two buildings over,, (obviously on guard). An effort was made to capture up the Sharpie to examine the poor bird for any injuries, but we are happy to report that as we approached the Sharpie, it quickly ran across the roof top to the north side and quickly took flight up and over the roof retaining wall. The Sharpie then dove down to almost the street level where it quickly flew north west with a very strong flight until it was out of our roof top view. The Sharpie flew in the opposite direction and behind another building obviously in an effort to conceal its escape from both us and the adult peregrine that was still steadfast on the watch on another roof top.

Fortunately the peregrine missed the Sharpie’s escape and there were no further incidents to report. Sadly we were unable to identify the identity of the adult female peregrine as we did not have binoculars at hand.

I am assuming it is Rhea Mae since we haven't heard of a change in the resident pair at the Sheraton.  Seneca hasn't been seen since January at Brookpark Rd. Bridge.  A new female is there now-Green Girl from Harrisburg 2009.  We are all hoping Seneca decided to find a better scrape.

!!! A First Egg?
March 23, 2011 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre
Linda Woods Reports:

Can’t be too sure at this time until I get a visual confirmation, but the activity at the Sheraton nest tray is indicating we are close to a first egg.

Last evening I checked the camera before the snow fall. One adult was in the tray and then sitting on the edge of the tray.

This morning a bird was lying down in the nest tray with all the snow around. Around 9:30 the bird moved and was seen sitting on the far end of the nesting ledge, sitting on the other camera frame. She later returned to lay down in the nest tray. She has returned this evening. I captured one shot late this afternoon / early evening and I can’t see an egg in the tray, but the adult peregrine has returned to the tray. Could she be keeping the nest warm with anticipation of the first egg? Please see pictures captured from the tray camera. Please be aware with the spring time change the clock on the camera did not adjust for the spring time  change.

More news tomorrow when I make the trip to the viewing port. Hopefully I’ll have coloured pictures to show as well.

(No egg that I can see yet but soon) One falcon, prob RM there now on the ledge.

Easter Eggs
April 24, 2011 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre
Linda Woods Reports:

A quick stop at the Sheraton, and Rhea Mae and Tiago gave me only a brief look at the eggs. They are holding tight to the nest. Expect a hatch early May.

NICE Pic!!

A good night time view indeed!
April 24, 2011 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre
CPF Postmaster Reports:

After more than two years in the planning, our dreams have finally been realized with the replacement of the aging black and white infrared camera on the Toronto Sheraton Centre nest.
In addition to the incredible day time colour images that it is now providing, the night images are much better than those provided by the 1999 vintage camera that we originally installed.

Should this camera stand the test of time, efforts will be made to seek further sponsorship and partner opportunities to replace all of our older CPF nest cameras at many of the other urban peregrine nest sites that we are closely monitoring.

While the camera’s provide an incredible educational opportunity for all, they also help us learn and understand more of the ways of the urban peregrine, their behaviours and adaptations, they have long since proven to be a most valuable as a necessary management tool for the species itself, particularly as it applies to the urban management of the species, and help us gather and report on the birds activities so that we can provide up to date and accurate information on the birds activities, including their courtship, egg production, incubation times and the exact hatch dates of each nest sites being monitored. This information assists in the coordination and the scheduling of routine building maintenance activities, window washing schedules, banding times frames and helps us with predicting the fledging times of the young hatchlings.

A much added bonus, allows us to closely monitor both the health and development of the hatchlings themselves, identify the types of food that they peregrines are eating, and of course assists us at fledging times during the actual fledge watches.
Stay tuned…………

!!! Sheraton Hatch?
April 30, 2011 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre
Linda Woods Reports:

Yesterday Zoe, captured an image from the web cam with evidence that we may have had a hatch.

Small fluffs of down can be seen in the image. I visited the nest site this morning with a quick look through the view port. Only a few fluffs of down remain, and what appears to be small fragments of egg shell. Keep checking the web camera and perhaps someone will witness food come to the nest tray.

Personal opinion-I don't think there was a hatch Friday-not much movement off the eggs all weekend except to switch.

But I think something's happening now...Rhea Mae has that hunched up look going on...

Shift Change at 10:20AM, no hatch as yet, but very close!
May 02, 2011 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre
Mark Nash Reports:

I was lucky this morning at 10:20 am to catch a shift change and get a great view of at least three of the eggs, but slow to the go to save a copy the shot. Seconds later, while I was trying to save the great photo I had captured, one of the resident adults flew back onto the ledge and returned to the nest tray to cover up the eggs. Sadly. my first photo was lost during my scramble in an effort to copy save it, but I was able to sucessfully save a second photo showing a tiny view of the exposed eggs in the nest tray as the adult attempts to cover them up and carry on with their incubation duties.

Although there has not been a hatch as yet, its getting close!!
Stay tuned………….

What I wound up doing was shrinking the window (ctrl -) so the insets were small enough to fit side by side.  The resolution wasn't great, but OK when it's wandering time.  I'm back to full size (ctrl 0) for hatch watch.

WHITBY, ONTARIO:
Saturday March 3, 2007
John Bennett reports: I was fortunate to sight this Peregrine falcon on Sat Mar 3rd. The location was Halls road in Whitby just before Noon.

Mark Nash comments: With many thanks to the NYDEC, we have been able to put a name to the juvenile peregrine falcon that has been spotted and photographed by John Bennett. A huge thank you to John for the great photos that he was able to shoot. The young juvenile peregrine falcon’s identity has been confirmed by its colour leg band number as being a female peregrine that was produced in Rochester New York at the Kodak nest site last year - 2006, and her name is Rhea Mae. She has two other sisters hatched at the same nest site last year.

When RM was ID'd in Canada 4 years ago!

So we're consistently only catching three eyas on camera.  Is CPF sure there was a fourth hatch?

Nancy in UT
I don't think they've said more than the 3 we've seen for sure.  

Most recent update:
!!! And now there are THREE!!!

At least we know for sure that 3 eyases are old enough now to form a beak pyramid!

And that Rhea Mae is one gorgeous peregrine!

#4 looks brand new today-much smaller than the other 3.  It managed to get out of the pile & Rhea Mae put it back into the pile & is brooding them now.

Well, it was active enough to get all the way over where it was...and looks fine in the 2nd & 3rd pic.  I think it just flipped over & she put it back with the rest.  A lot we haven't seen over the years before streaming video...

Looking again-pic 4 is her taking out the trash...mini is at the front of the pile

Linda Woods Reports:

I arrived in time for the first time to see a feed. I quickly grabbed my camera and crossed my fingers that equipment was not obstructing my camera view. WONDERFUL! I also captured some live video. So sweet, but I don’t know what is causing them to look toward the wall. Perhaps the shadow of Tiago flying past the nest ledge.

Late this afternoon I checked the web cam and a split second I caught the second image. The little one looking directly at the camera.

Hmmm, I wonder if they know we are watching

Great Pic Linda, thanks!

May 15, 2011 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre
Mark Nash Reports:


Captured some great shots moments ago with Tiago very confused and frustrated while he is trying to figure out how he can cover and brood his hatchlings from the fowl weather conditions today,, with high gusty winds, cold temps, and more rain!!
Seconds later, RM also attended (see in the top left part of the photo) to give him some instructions and direction as to how its to be done.

Still, the hatchlings are just to big to actually cover them all at this age, so the best plan of action is to try and shelter them from the cold blowing winds and driving rain.
Toronto’s weather today is terrible, with unreasonably cold damp conditions, driving rain and blustery winds!

Poor Tiago, he tried!

Four baby falcons, 43 storeys and an 80 per cent death rate

In a chorus of squawks, four fluffy falcon chicks were introduced to the city Tuesday on the 43rd floor of the downtown Sheraton Hotel.

The newest additions to Toronto’s growing peregrine population — Sunshine, Cinnamon, William and Kate (yes, our very own Royal Couple), each a frightened bundle of white down — announced their presence with ceaseless chirping.


“They’re magnificent,” said Joyce Miller, who made the trip from Rochester, N.Y., to see the newborns.

The baby peregrine falcons, or eyasses, are the progeny of Ria (sp)-May(sp) and Tiago, the Sheraton’s rooftop couple. Ria-May was born in Rochester, while Tiago is a local boy.

The chicks, all born in the last three weeks, were “banded” — fitted with tiny anklets which allow both the U.S. and Canadian wildlife services to monitor them — by Ontario’s Ministry of Natural Resources, with help from the Canadian Peregrine Foundation.

“It’s like a SIN card,” said foundation director Mark Nash, adding the ankle bands do not harm or inconvenience the birds.

The newborn chicks will be entirely dependent on their parents for the next two and half months, but around their 40th day they will attempt their first flight. That’s when Nash and his devoted volunteers will carry out what he calls the foundation’s primary function: “fledge watching.”

Uncoordinated and naïve, the flutter feebly in the wind and often crash to the ground in their early attempts to fly.

So from dawn until dusk, “fledge watchers” will babysit from below. They will watch for spiralling nose-divers, attend to the wounded and generally protect the chicks from ground-level dangers until they can confidently flap and glide on their own. By doing so, they hope to reduce the birds’ 80 per cent infant mortality rate.

Thirty years ago, there was not a single peregrine falcon in Ontario, according to Nash, who said that pesticides, especially DDT, nearly wiped out the species. Ontario is now home to more than 80 of the predatory birds. More than 16 couples live in the Greater Toronto Area and its environs.

The Sheraton and its rooftop nest have played host to a number of mating falcons since the late 1990s.

While the downtown core may seem a perilous place for the birds, they in fact thrive in urban environments. A skyscraper ledge acts as a cliffside perch and unsuspecting pigeons provide ample nourishment.

Toronto’s other beloved peregrine couple — Quest and Kendal, who met, serendipitously, across from Harlequin’s North York headquarters earlier this year — could soon be parents. The couple’s first egg is expected to hatch next weekend.

Kate is one of four tiny falcon chicks that live atop the Sheraton Centre in downtown Toronto. The four were banded today by the Canadian Peregrine Foundation and Ministry of Natural Resources, and can be watched 24 hours a day on the Internet.

http://www.peregrine-foundation.ca/webcams.html (http://www.peregrine-foundation.ca/webcams.html)

I'm sorry that I wasn't at the banding at the Sheraton Centre today...  And I have no excuse.  My head space simply got in the way of an incredibly special moment.  That's it.  I haven't felt too comfortable here, on rfalcomcam, since my several rather pointed posts.  Not because of what any of you said or even if any of you remember them, but because of what I've come to realize about myself and how I express my opinions.  There's little point expanding on that.  But I wasn't comfortable with seeing the gals from Rochester at the banding, which was no doubt unfounded and my loss alone.  But I am really sorry that I cut myself off this way and how I haven't counted on going to Rochester at all this year, although I am now retired and can travel.  Now I have to rethink that.  Because I really regret my decision today.

I hope that no one else will make the mistakes I made assuming, instead of just asking in any circumstance.  You miss a tremendous number of things that way...  It denies one the joys of life...

Thank you for all the posts, the URLs, the photos.  What an awesome foursome of eyases.  One can't help but fall in love with them, wish them lives of pure perfection, thank Rhea Mae & Tiago, for their diligence and drive to continue their line.

Anne in Toronto

Anne, you are one of us and we are here.  I'm so sorry you didn't go to banding (but there is still Quest)! and I hope you are less hard on yourself.  You've been through some trying times

EVERYONE!   GO to the link and see the pictures of Rhea Mae and Tiago's four gorgeous offspring.  Grand-eyases of Marian and Kaver.    See the article in the Toronto Star and the blog...leave a comment. 
Love the names!  Sunshine!  William!  Kate!  and little Cinnamon!   Cinnamon is the tiny male.
Joyce was quoted in the article.  Lucky Rochester falcon flakes team!     Saw these bebes but also Quest and Kendall and Linn and Reuben   and others too!    YAY  for team Rochester falcon fans/flakes!

Anne, I have done the same.  Everyone gets welcomed back into the flock (although falcons do not flock). Rhea Mae and Tiago don't know the difference.  But someday they may miss you at the banding. I can tell you that after only three years at Jersey City and the same at Water St, the birds know us watchers.  So keep on watching. One day missed is not a big deal.

After banding they always seem to realize they're not glued to the nest box.  Silly me assumed it was the girls wandering around...

      

Nope!  Mini...formally known as Cinnamon...is leading the pack!

Is it just me or does anyone else see Mariah in   Rhea Mae? The coloration, the stance, the posture, the stripes, the protective mode... the attitude?  She is her mom.    :wub:

I can access the first screen of CPF and then when i click on latest news, I get the access denied screen  403. 
It we are both getting that, it's probably a problem with their site.

Yes-right after I had saved the pictures.  It has happened before, usually when they're making changes, adding multiple reports & pictures.  Hopefully it will be back soon.  At least RM&T's webcam is still running...

These photos taken today shows how fast the little ones mature. I found them snoozing and enjoying the warm sunshine. William appears to be the loner of the group, as he spend all of his time at the other end of the ledge during my visit.

Fledge Watch will begin this Wednesday June 8th and will be in full swing by the weekend.

The first one to fly should be Sunshine, green tape, then Kate, blue tape.

Funny-I had noticed Kate wanting to be alone!  And I think William may go before Kate-he doesn't have much fluff left...

There will be 4 extra Watchers to help with Rhea Mae and Tiago's Fledge Watch this Saturday and Sunday.  Kathy O, Dana, Lisa McK and I will be up in Canada to see Linn's eyases banded and to visit ALL the Rochester Falcons nest sites, including Stormin's.  I've already notified Linda W and Anne in Toronto to let them know we would be there.  Can't wait!!!   :clap: :heart:

See you Saturday!

How fast these babies have grown.  Wasn't Sunshine the largest of the eyases when they were banded? 
How wonderful to see these babies this year with the new cam, and even better,to be able to see Quest with Harlequin!  Balance.

Well, today I start my first fledgling watch at the Sheraton Centre!  This morning it's unofficial, as I am joining Harry Crawford to get an idea of the strategies they use to cover an area of such tall buildings, so close together.  Yikes!!  And Harry is going to teach me how to use the communications radio.  Then, on Friday, I am going to join Linda Woods to be officially shown the ropes.  Although I've been around rfalconcam and the CPF for quite a long time now, I've never be involved in the watches, but retirement and good health allows it now and I'm ready to go!  And yeah, a bit nervous!  But will get used to it soon, I'm sure!

I was actually stopped at the Sheraton Centre, on Monday, on the way back from a walk to the water front and saw either Rhea Mae or Tiago flying overhead!  Can never see this too often -- always get excited!  And now I hope to see a lot more!

I'll let you know how it goes!  I just kind of hope that none of the eyases decides to suddenly become a fledgling tomorrow, rain and all..., although Harry has years of experience!  Linda Woods thinks Friday at the earliest.  And she really is an expert at such things!

Anne - you'll do fine!  I'll never forget Jeanne's and my first fledge watch together.  We were newbees and signed up at the same time with no experienced watchers with us.  We each had a carrier, a spray bottle, a light shirt or blanket, a notepad, our binoculars and our walkie talkies. We were fully prepared and petrified that one would fledge on our watch!  

Have fun!  ~Joyce

Anne in Toronto

You made the CPF update, Anne!

2011 Sheraton Watch Start
June 08, 2011 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre
Harry Crawford Reports:

Well, the Sheraton watch started today.  I arrived on site at
7:45am.  Two chicks were visible and an adult flew to the
‘Centre’ logo for a brief while.  At 8:50am, the swing stage was
moved to the south side [not lowered] and started moving west,
towards the nest ledge.  I was afraid it would cause a premature
fledge so quickly went over to the hotel and talked with their very
receptive management.  The stage then moved east and around to the
north side.  The chicks didn’t seem disturbed.

On the way back to the courtyard, I met up with Annie Clarke who
is joining the watch.  We spent a fair amount of time with site
orientation and then met Zoe who introduced us to Vanessa, who will
also spend time with us on the watch.

All in all, the chicks were not running around or flapping.  This
supports Linda’s feeling that we likely will not have a fledge until
the weekend, accident excepted.  Incidentally, the adults were seen
on the west KPMG logo with a full view of the nest ledge.  This is a
new office tower.

This is definitely a different kind of watch than we are used to.  But so excited to be able to help.

See ya this weekend and good luck with your first watches.   :thumbsup:

I had just the most incredible day, on my first fledge watch at the Sheraton Centre!!!  It was very hot -- high 90s with 51% humidity, but somehow it didn't matter!  I got there really early and didn't leave until 7:15pm, when Linda Woods and I decided that the thunderstorm was going to hit any minutes and headed inside.  And she took me up to the 43rd floor to peek through the hole at the 4 eyases, still where they belonged!!  It was so amazing to see them close up!!  They are gorgeous!!  Throughout the day, we saw plenty of Rhea Mae and Tiago flying, carrying food in and out and just sitting watching the nestbox area diligently!  I met Harry, Zoe, Vanessa (also on her first day), Bruce and, as I said, Linda Woods and they were really welcoming, so helpful, took me all over the place to learn vantage points, for all the places fledglings can land!!  The place is just a mass of huge buildings!  Apparently the hardest of the Toronto peregrine sites to watch, because the fledglings can land anywhere!  And now I truly believe it!  Anyway, just thought I'd tell you what a wonderful day I had, how privileged I feel being included in this effort, how just plain excited I am to have seen so much!!  And it all starts over again, tomorrow!!  :2thumbsup:

Awesome Anne,never a doubt things would go well! The gang there is very experienced. Its a great chance to learn fledge watching,observe the amazing birds and learn about them and make a difference. Whether one is called upon to make a rescue or not,being part of the team is very important. Each volunteer must play their part and together you all make a difference! Good luck on day 2.

You will be fine Anne!  And so lucky.  And all of you Rochester watchers..you are the best, and Rhea Mae and Tiago's babies will be in fine hands with all of you watching. Yes, it will be different; Toronto is so different from our little city, but you are all such experienced watchers and have such a connection to RM that those fledglings are lucky!    Send lots of pictures and reports to all of us locked in couch potatoes.

!!! Thunderstorm, stay at home
June 08, 2011 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre
Linda Woods Reports:

All four chicks remain on the nest ledge. This afternoon, adults were seen doing touch and go and demonstrating flights skills. We couldn’t tell if the young ones were paying attention, because there  was no screaming of excitement from the kids. All was very quiet for the most part.

 A very threatening thunderstorm rolled through parts of the downtown area around 7p.m. Amazingly, some areas received hail and heavy winds and lots of rain. With the threatening weather we called the watch for the night around 7p.m.  I checked the webcam around 8p.m. and onward and had all four accounted for.

2nd Morning at the Sheraton Centre
June 09, 2011 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre
Harry Crawford Reports:

I got to the watch at 7:45am.  The chicks were fed at 6:30am [webcam
viewing].  Around 9am, the oldest chick was flapping and running
back and forth.  Most of the time, at least two chicks were visible
from ground level.  At 9:30am, an adult visited the nest ledge
briefly.  For about half an hour, none of the chicks were visible so
this was possibly another food drop.  Linda dropped by a bit later
and confirmed that all four chicks were on the nest ledge.  I left
just after 11:30am and the site was now being watched by Annie.
Posted on June 9, 2011 5:06 pm




And, as of right now, all 4 are still at home...though Sunshine fooled me there for a minute...thought it was Rhea Mae! 


Title: Re: Rhea Mae and Tiago's Webcam - Toronto - Canadian Peregrine Foundation
Post by: anneintoronto on 09-Jun-11, 10:17:15 pm
I had another good day on watch at the Sheraton Centre!  I went over at 10am and stayed until 4:30pm.  It was cooler today, at times cloudy, windy, but generally just comfortable.  One moment of holding my breath (or was that totally stop breathing!) -- one eyas almost became an unintentional fledgling, as it was standing out on the ledge, at the nestbox end, and suddenly flapped its beautiful wings and its front foot slipped and it tipped forward!  It then began to back-flap madly, caught its balance and regained its control, still on the ledge, and backed quickly into the nestbox, which was behind it!  It probably scared it more than me, but it would have been a close call!  :hysterical: It then did a "I'm in control" run from one end to the other of its home, fully flapping its wings, but in safety, away from the edge!!  That I can handle!!  :happy:

Tiago spent a very busy hour, in the early afternoon, "clearing the airspace" above the Sheraton.  There had been a fair number of Turkey Vultures, lots of seagulls flying around up there and then, within this hour, suddenly none, except Tiago!  It was really a good demonstration of Peregrine Power!!  He chased, did short stoops, struck at various birds and they moved along with no argument!!  Eventually the occasional seagull would pass through again, but not in any numbers!!  Rhea Mae spent the majority of her time sitting on various building tops that afforded her a clear view of the 43rd floor home of her eyases!  And then occasionally, one or the other would soar in to see the kids, presumably to make a drop of food.

So, my thoughts, after my first day, were proven right -- fledge watching involves hours of sitting, standing, patiently watching, broken occasionally by moments of shear terror!!

Back tomorrow, to see what it brings!!

Sunshine still at home
June 09, 2011 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre
Linda Woods Reports:

All four were still on the ledge at 8p.m. this evening. Today the adults were seen giving flying lessons, but Sunshine wasn’t buying it. I think she was taking notes, but not really doing a lot of ‘testing her wings’ on the ledge, this evening. A food drop was done for the others around 6p.m.  Winds are really gusty at street level, whipping around these tall structures, which is really deceiving. It feels really cool out in the wind, but when I arrived at the King St. sight, the winds were calm and a very pleasant evening.

Perhaps tomorrow will be the day for a first flight.

They've been good at hiding from the cam today.  This morning I could only find 3 as well.  All I can tell you is right now Sunshine, who should be the first to go, is on the ledge looking out.  William, who (in my opinion) will be the second to go is by the back wall.  The one leaning against the ledge appears to be Cinnamon, leaving Kate as the not visible juvie...and she likes to be alone.  I'd wait a while before panicking.

She was actually using her wings to get to some nestovers by the wall...phew!

Friday morning - no fledge
June 10, 2011 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre
Harry Crawford Reports:

7:25am had me at the courtyard, south of the Sheraton.  Two chicks
were visible but there were no adults around.  At 5am, I had all
four chicks on the webcam.  Around 7am, I could only see three of
them.  I started wandering around looking for adults in case there
was a fledge.  I met up with Zoe a few times and she could only see
three on her office computer.  Eventually I found one adult in a
normal location so I stopped searching.

One or two chicks could be seen flapping and running along the nest
ledge.  This still wasn’t the typical amount of activity before a
normal fledge.  Linda and Annie showed up.  I left the site in
Annie’s good hands.  When I got home just after 12pm, I was able to
see all four chicks on the nest ledge [webcam].  It is going to be
soon now.  They are probably waiting for the Rochester Four to get
here to join the weekend watch.

To the folks who managed to get the webcam back online - much
thanks!  Because we are are stretched so thin this year, the webcam is
a critical participant.

Sunshine 40 days Old
June 10, 2011 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre
Linda Woods Reports:

Well today Sunshine is 40 days old and just like any child still is at home.  Not a lot of activity this evening, with burst of mild flapping, but no running of the ledge or excitement from her or the others. Rhea Mae and Tiago stayed in view well into the evening, prompting us to stay until dark. Sunshine finally gave up and went out of our view at 8:45p.m. and Rhea Mae was still on 130 Adelaide when we called it a night.

Rain expected tomorrow.

No Fledge as yet
June 11, 2011 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre
Linda Woods Reports:

All accounted for at the Sheraton Toronto. Sunshine has not fledged as yet. Food was delivered to the nest ledge at 9:00p.m. this evening.

Today, not much activity. Did not see any touch and go from the adults. Sunshine and her siblings were seen briefly. Mainly sunshine and Kate sat on the edge of the ledge and peered out. An unusual bird was seen late this evening in the area, but identity was not made.Certainly not as majestic as the peregrines, but Perhaps not so unusual for the downtown core.

Fledge watch continues

No fledge this morning
June 12, 2011 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre
Harry Crawford Reports:

When I got to the watch at 7:30am, Bruce had been there for some
time.  Just after lunch, we were joined by the Rochester Four.  It
was great getting insight into Rhea Mae’s upbringing and the goings
on at the Rochester sites.  Shortly after, we were joined by Zoe and
Annie.  Even though there was no fledge this morning, we certainly
had the capacity to deal with one.  There were three feedings and a
lot of running and flapping.  Maybe this afternoon…

Another rather cold, windy day!  But there was a lot of activity with Rhea Mae and Tiago chasing turkey vultures, ring-billed gulls, delivering food to the eyases, making passes to show the eyases how flying works, Sunshine flapping around on the ledge!  Sunshine kept us on our toes, as so many times we thought she might take off, but she jumped back into the protection of home at the last minute!  It was really good to see the Rochester 4!  But was very sorry that Joyce and MAK had such troubles and I didn't get to meet them.  But was very relieved that they were not injured!  And tomorrow is another day -- hopefully Sunshine will decide that the wild, blue yonder looks good enough to explore!  And that she does it safely!

!!! No Fledge, a repeat of yesterday
June 12, 2011 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre
Linda Woods Reports:

Sunshine is hanging tight to the nest ledge. Flapping and running of the ledge seen today and late this afternoon. The most activity this evening was around 5:30p.m. Rhea Mae took prey to the roof top of the Sheraton near the west side. Tiago flew in to see what was for dinner. The then flew off to the Antenna. Moments later Rhea Mae took the food pack to the nest ledge. And that was it , aside from staring out the nest ledge. The adults have been busy today running off Turkey Vultures today;

At 8p.m. all was quiet and had not seen any of the kids for a while now. Weather is cool, breezy and somewhat overcast. Adult were not in view of the chicks. We decided that, “she’s not going this evening” and closed the watch for the day.

hmm, perhaps tomorrow

!!! Sunshine Takes Her First Flight!
June 13, 2011 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre
Linda Woods Reports:

This afternoon a viewer sent images from the web cam. It appears Sunshine was testing her wings, saying a few prayers, and at 5:00p.m. she took off and over to the roof top of the Hilton.  Her flight was steady and her landing was pretty good for the first time. No vocalizing during the flight. She seemed to be comfortable on the Hilton, no screaming when she saw the adults  checking in on her.

She remained there until 8:10p.m. when she attempted a second flight back to the nest ledge. She lost a little height, and didn’t quite make it. She is now holding tight and will spend the night on a undisclosed area of the Sheraton.

Please see the pics. First one “Testing, testing” and the second image is
Preflight Prayers”

pre-flight prayers!

I sure was, along with Linda Woods, and it was just great!!!  What a champ that Sunshine is!  Really flew quite well, landed well enough, flapped around with gusto!!  It was really delightful to watch!  I really hoped that she'd stay put on the Hilton, but, hey, that gal has her own mind and did what she felt she had to do!  And did much better than I thought she would!  She flew strongly, with good co-ordination, and, despite the strong wind gusts, made it as far up as she did impressively, landed quite well, not just "by accident"!!  I was totally impressed...once I started breathing again!!  And she's just fine where she is until the morning and she will be watched over by her parents and by Harry, a dedicated and practised watcher, first thing!  She certainly made my day!!  :2thumbsup:

I had sent a bunch of Sunshine's pre-fledge pictures to Mark Nash, not expecting him to have time to look at them for quite a while and I got a nice note back in the wee hours of this morning...with this request...

PLEASE APOLOGIZE FOR US, as we are all suffering from sleep deprivation with 14 plus hours in the streets, and by the time you get home at 10 to 11pm, most of us only have enough energy to eat and go to bed knowing that 5am come early and we’re back in the streets doing another 12 to 14 hours.  After the travel time getting to and from the various sites, it doesn’t leave much time for sleep in between.

Obviously, no apology is needed! Personally, I don't know how CPF manages to cover so many sites so successfully!  So, thank you to all the fledge watchers no matter where you are for keeping the babies safe!

I sure was, along with Linda Woods, and it was just great!!!  What a champ that Sunshine is!  Really flew quite well, landed well enough, flapped around with gusto!!  It was really delightful to watch!  I really hoped that she'd stay put on the Hilton, but, hey, that gal has her own mind and did what she felt she had to do!  And did much better than I thought she would!  She flew strongly, with good co-ordination, and, despite the strong wind gusts, made it as far up as she did impressively, landed quite well, not just "by accident"!!  I was totally impressed...once I started breathing again!!  And she's just fine where she is until the morning and she will be watched over by her parents and by Harry, a dedicated and practised watcher, first thing!  She certainly made my day!!  :2thumbsup:
Anne in Toronto

You've been putting in a LOT of full days watching, too!!
So glad you got to see that and that it went so well!

Anne, you are doing awesome!  Fledge watches are not for the faint-hearted!  I always think of Dan S, our veteran watcher since our Mariah and Cabot, who always says he hates the first week!  The flying is usually pretty good but the landings can be  :scaredblue:

Our beautiful Rhea Mae, flew to the smokestack and then down in it!  I remember we all moved our chairs to be closer to the stacks and her parents and siblings moved to above where she was!  Now she commands the skies!

Sunshine doing real well
June 14, 2011 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre
Harry Crawford Reports:

When I arrived this morning at 7:30am, Sunshine was not where she
was when Linda shut the watch down last night.  The adults didn’t
seem concerned and were doing their usual hunting as well as
watching the nest ledge.  Around 10am, Teri from 85 Richmond West
had joined Zoe and I briefly and then she saw Sunshine come off the
roof area just above the nest.  It was a very controlled and strong
flight, disappearing above 120 Adelaide West.  Zoe and I went up to
the 43rd floor of the Sheraton and there she was, playing in a
puddle on the centre top of the 120 Adelaide penthouse.

The three remaining chicks were not particularly active and there
were a couple of food drops.  I left just after 11:30am.  Zoe and
Annie continued the watch.

!!! Sunshine Returns Home
June 14, 2011 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre
Linda Woods Reports:

Sunshine returns to the nest ledge. What a Flyer! She fooled me. I thought it was an adult taking food to the ledge. She spent most of the day on the higher elevation of 120 Adelaide. At dinner time I did a check, she was still there on the east side of this roof top. After not seeing much activity, I did another check, she was gone. What I thought was food going into the ledge was actually Sunshine returning.  Good flyer. I hope she keeps it up. She stayed there for the remainder of the evening and we closed the watch for the night at 9:00p.m. They appeared to be down for the night. All was quiet This image sent to us from the Rochester Crew viewing the webcam.

Groundhog Day
June 15, 2011 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre
Linda Woods Reports:

Do you ever get the feeling you are reliving the same day over and over. No new fledges. Sunshine is doing very well and has no shame returning to the nest ledge for potential meal hand outs. Early in the evening she had a meal delivered by Tiago, on the roof of 120.  A little brown bat flew around the courtyard around the same time. Not a lot activity seen from the unfledged chicks. We decided to leave and check the King St nest site. On our return. Sunshine was sitting on an upper window ledge. This was confirmed by a camera check. She didn’t stay there long as food was delivered to the nest ledge and Sunshine flew off the window ledge and back into the nest ledge. That was about all the excitement for the evening.

We closed the watch for the night at 9p.m.

June 16, 2011 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre
Linda Woods Reports:

Sunshine continues to impress all of us with her wonderful flight skills. Zoe reported today, the Sunshine made it up to the KPMG signage to join an adult , but didn’t stay long. The others are still enjoying meals at home, with not a lot of activity late this afternoon.Some vocalization when the adults come into view. Cinnamon still has evidence of white on him. Kate is looking more and more like Sunshine as she matures and darkens.  I think this might be the weekend for another fledge.

Go Sunshine!

William fledged yesterday
June 18, 2011 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre
Harry Crawford Reports:

According to Linda and Zoe, William fledged late yesterday
afternoon.  I arrived on site at 7:20am to find an adult and
juvenile on the north west corner of 130 Adelaide.  Earlier in the
morning, three juveniles were visible on the nest ledge via the
webcam.  When I viewed the building from the 43rd floor of the
hotel, nothing was visible.  The adult had disappeared.  I waited
around for some time and the juvenile appeared from under the north
east corner.  It was hidden from view.  I couldn’t see if it was
William because the white tape was not visible with the double
window panes.  I eventually relocated to the south east corner of
the City Hall square.  From time to time, I could see the juvenile
on 130 Adelaide.  It made a few attempts to run along the ledge,
flapping all the time.  It could well have been William.  Normal
adult activity was seen as well.

Zoe arrived and took up the courtyard at 130 Adelaide.  The juvenile
did not appear again.  Hopefully the afternoon crew can establish
the identity of the juvenile on 130 Adelaide.

William has not been seen
June 18, 2011 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre
Linda Woods Reports:

Lots of activity from Sunshine, she is rocking the skies. She returns numerous times to the nest ledge looking for scraps or new handouts. This evening she spent some time on the letter “T” of  the Sheraton signage, with food. Just before dark we heard lots of screaming , when Sunshine flew into view with Rhea Mae behind her. Sunshine was not going to bed! They flew in front of the Sheraton, Sunshine turned south Rhea Mae behind her. I guess it was a game. Rhea Mae kept on her until Sunshine returned to the nest ledge and Rhea Mae went to 130 Adelaide.

Food drops to the ledge throughout the day. I did numerous nest check and every time, I only saw Cinnamon and Kate, confirmed by band colours. At one time both of them were on the other camera housing lined up as if they were waiting for take off. At that time, Sunshine was in the far end nest ledge around the corner picking at crumbs, left over from a food drop. I have scoured the area looking at every roof top, window ledges. I have even checked the “Keg” both the menu and roof. No sign of William. When the adults have been flying food over the area, there has been no screaming from beyond the nest. Sunshine spends a lot of time on 120 Adelaide, both upper and lower roofs and usually on the north east side.

Marion and I have kept a close eye on the activiy of the adults and they don’t seem to be indicating the whereabouts of William. Perhaps he’ll show up tomorrow.

(Only see Cinnamon and Kate on ledge) Hope they locate Wm.

Update, 3 there now, not sure but looks like Sunshine!

!!! William found
June 19, 2011 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre
Harry Crawford Reports:
At 7:20am, I found Kate and Cinnamon on the nest ledge, visible from
120 Adelaide.  A short time later, Sunshine appeared on the roof,
just above the nest ledge.  She hopped down to the ‘S’ and started
to make her was over to the ‘t’ of Centre.  Apparently, one of the
adults had stashed prey there.  Sunshine started to clean the prey!
Feathers were going everywhere.

As much as I would have liked to stay and watch, this was an
opportunity to go up to the 43rd floor of the hotel and see if I
could spot our missing William.  After checking a dozen or more roof
tops, I found him on the south ledge of the lower level portion of
the Sheraton Centre.  I quickly went down to the courtyard south of
the hotel and began watching.  When Zoe arrived, she continued
watching William while I went back to the front of 120 Adelaide to
watch the nest ledge in case one of the remaining two fledged.

This could be an interesting and challenging day for Zoe and the
afternoon crew.

June 19, 2011 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre
Linda Woods Reports:
After taking over the watch from Zoe, and keeping an eye on William. I ventured up to the 43rd to have a birds eye view of the movements.  Around 3:30p.m. Sunshine did a food exchange with Rhea Mae! At 6:15p.m.,  Keeping my eye on  William and scanning the roof tops,  I saw some movement on the upper level of 120 Adelaide St.  At first I thought it was Sunshine, but saw that it was looking a little unsteady. A close look at the glowing red tape on the leg band confirmed it was Cinnamon! SURPRISE! Good landing. He wandered about that area, before settling down on the north west facing silver strut, where he laid down for the night. Kate had a good chow down and the entire nest ledge to herself for a short time, before Sunshine returned to the  nest ledge.

William remained on the lower structure of the Sheraton Hotel, and that is where, hopefully he will be in the morning.

Good Luck Harry!

But who is it?  This just in...

!!! It is likely that Kate has finally fledged
June 20, 2011 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre
Harry Crawford Reports:

I arrived on scene (City Hall) at 7:30am.  Cinnamon and Sunshine
were were they were when Linda left last night.  Kate was still on
the nest ledge but William was not on the lower Sheraton building.
I was concerned that Kate might take flight so I stayed at the front
of 120 Adelaide.  Good thing - William appeared later on the west
side of the ‘Phoenix’ building.  All four juveniles were seen by
8am.

Zoe arrived shortly after.  She remained watching William and Kate
and I took up watching Cinnamon and Sunshine from ‘the rocks’ on
York St.  William quickly moved around to the south side of the
building and eventually up to the roof (we think).  We tried to view
from all angles from the street to no avail so I went up to 43.  The
view from the men’s washroom doesn’t cover the whole ‘Phoenix’
building.  The view should be better from the women’s washroom - no
I didn’t!

While I was up there, Sunshine took a pass at Cinnamon, likely to
get him to fly.  He eventually tried to get back to the roof above
him from the top of the pillar, missed the landing and took off over
to the Bell building, landing on the east-west segment between the
north and south buildings.  I came down and met up with Zoe who was
watching a juvenile peregrine on the penthouse of the north Bell
building.  This was a big bird!  This had to be Kate.  So when I
left before lunch, we probably had Sunshine, sleeping on the north
west corner of 130 Adelaide, William somewhere on the ‘Phoenix’
building and Kate and Cinnamon somewhere on the Bell complex.

This is going to be one complicated afternoon and evening.  Good
luck Zoe, Annie and Linda.

!!! Disappearing Act
June 20, 2011 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre
Linda Woods Reports:

Stinkers. As soon as you have them they disappear.

When I arrived on site and nest check was in order. Kate and Sunshine were on the nest ledge. Zoe and Harry had Cinnamon on the lower area of 130 Adelaide and that is where I found him and ID’d him with the red tape. I never saw William.

Cinnamon finally mustard up the courage to fly again around 7:45p.m. Flew south towards Lombard Place , across the street from where he was. He appeared on the north pinnacle of this building. Not being able to see this area from 43 I made my way to the ground and met up with Vanessa and Sharon.  I positioned myself to the east of this building, While the two other ladies stayed to the west.  Combination of radio issues and distraction from the adults circling above. Cinnamon moved out of our view. By the time we repositioned again, he was no longer in sight.  He could very well be still there and hopefully with William who I  have not seen since last night. Not seeing any of the juvies, I made another nest check. Kate was not in view, I hope she didn’t take off. Sunshine had made her way back to the nest ledge for a chow down (no surprise) Rhea Mae and Tiago were on the cooling area of 120 Adelaide St.

!!! Tragic news to report! Sadly, William has collided with a building and didn’t make it.
June 21, 2011 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre
Mark Nash Reports:

Sadly we have tragic news to report this morning with regards to William, the young fledgling from the Toronto Sheraton Hotel nest site. I received a call at 6:50 am this morning where the caller reports seeing a large brown bird hit the windows high up in the concrete canopy and they watched lifeless bird fall to the street level out of their view. Moments after the first call, just after 7am, I received a second telephone call for a CPF supporter, and a friend who actually works with the Solar Window washing company, the great folks that support us with all of their services to get us and the Ministry of Natural Resources to many of the nest ledges so the young hatchlings can be removed for banding. In fact, the second caller was non other than Steve who was one of the Solar window washers staff on the swing stage to assist with the Toronto King street banding. He was able to retrieve the dead bird from the sidewalk before it was trampled or run over by traffic and take some photos for us to help properly identify the bird. He was also able to box the bird for us and hold it over for us to pick it up later today. Sadly, the deceased peregrine is identified by it s leg band as being William from the Toronto Sheraton nest site.

Sadly, one of the many dangers of urban living that we all have to deal with,,, (for us it’s the traffic and all of the congestion), for the young fledgling peregrines it the windows and the concrete. We alway hope that the young fledglings actually had some minor hits and bumps with the glass and concrete early in their fledge, as the first week of their flights sees them much slower in their flights, and they are lucky enough to have some minor hits and bumps (and survive), they learn to stay away from these dangers.

If they are unlucky enough not to have some minor hits and bumps early in their first flights, and they start making contact the second week, they are usually way toooo confident, and have already built up incredible speeds in their flight, and contact with windows at this stage usually results in very serious injuries and mortality.

That being said, all of the young fledglings are highly influenced in their first flights with the gusty winds that surround our hi-rise office towers, and given their inexperience to dal with these conditions, they are often blown around off course at these high altitudes.

A grim reminder that live in the fast lane, especially for a young fledgling peregrine learning to fly is not a easy task. The good news, is that the larger percentage of the urban peregrine hatchlings do survive (some time with a lot of help from us in the streets), and many have gone to survive that are now adults nesting in other cities producing their own families.

For all of the CPF fledge watch volunteers, you should be very happy to know that you have saved far more than we have lost over the past 17 years that we have all being doing the fledge watches, and remember that we can only do what we can do. The rest is up to the birds and a little luck!

Th photos attached are a little graphic and caution is advised when reviewing them.

I had quite a day, as a fledgling watcher at the Sheraton Centre and the King Street East site, here in Toronto.  The devastating news was, as you already know, that William had a collision with a building and died.  It's very hard to take in.  You see a young bird flying, doing so well and then suddenly he is gone.  Reality is hard to take sometimes.  But then we got word that a young peregrine was down on the sidewalk on York Street.  Zoe Berger and I raced over and there was Cinnamon, already "boxed" by the wonderful staff at The Keg.  He looked good, was peeking out at all the wonders around him...  Linda Woods arrived and transferred him to a proper carrier and we were told that Mark Nash would be over to see him and probably put him back on the nest ledge.  However, Mark was having to rescue Kenya, the young male fledgling over at the King Street East site, one of the two birds we saw looking so great just hours earlier!  Kenya had wandered onto a low building, needed to be rescued before he got any lower, into real trouble.  He proved to be strong and gave Mark a few solid wounds, in his effort to capture Kenya and return him to his building.  Finally Mark came over to the Sheraton site, where Linda and I were still keeping an eye on the unfledged Kate, and we all went up, Mark checked Cinnamon out -- and gave me some good information as to what he was looking for, what he thought -- and then put him back on the nest ledge.  Cinnamon was very small, obviously hadn't eaten much since his fledging...  He was given lots of water and hopefully his parents will give him some good meals before he is once again ready to face the world of Toronto and all its tall buildings, strong winds!

Yes, I had quite a day.  Came face to face with two different realities.  It gives one a lot to think about...  But, one way or another, I consider myself very fortunate to have been included in these efforts, to have learned so much in such a short period of time.  And frankly, I hope tomorrow is a little quieter!!

Thanks for the report, Anne.  It is so hard to lose one, but the odds of success are so greatly improved by the watchers.  William may be gone, but Cinnamon is safe.

Meanwhile, I was able to catch one shot with the 3 siblings on the ledge before Sunny took off again...

!!! Unfortunate For William, Cinnamon comes to the sidewalk
June 22, 2011 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre
Linda Woods Reports:

Not a good start to the day. CPF received a call stating that a banded bird was found near the base of the tall buildings on Bay St. in downtown Toronto. I was dispatched to investigate and it is confirmed that the young bird is indeed, William from the Sheraton Toronto Nest Site. Don’t have much more information regarding his collision.

Later in the day, another call was received and once again I was dispatched to the “Keg” on York St. Cinnamon had come to the sidewalk!  Quick thinking and mindful staff of both the Keg and Oxford Properties who  knew what to do. They carefully place Cinnamon in a box and secured the area until I could get there. Zoe and Annie retrieved the rescue carrier and delivered to the site and I transferred Cinnamon from the cardboard box and into the top of the line pet carrier, that Jan Chudy donated to the cause a few years ago.  On quick examination there didn’t appear to be any injuries. I gave him a little water and he was placed in a cool quiet area to rest. Mark Nash arrived on site to do a full examination, and my goodness… CUTE as a button, he’s a doll.  Mark did a final full examination and Cinnamon was good to go back to the nest ledge to join his sister, Kate.  That was completed by 11:00p.m.

Sunshine continues to do very well. It appears she may be venturing further away from the nesting area. She didn’t return to the nest ledge for the night, but was seen earlier in the evening.

Kate remains on the nest unfledged. She still has a little more fluff on the top of her legs. I was surprised.

Photos coming and will be posted

!!! Kate 45 days Old
June 22, 2011 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre
Linda Woods Reports:

Kate is approximately 45 days old today and still unfledged. She is shedding more of the white.  Sunshine was chasing Rhea Mae this evening, probably screaming for food.  Cinnamon is content to stay at home this evening, after his big ordeal. Food went into the ledge around 8p.m. Rhea Mae went back to the nest ledge around 8:30 and was feeding but could see who was being fed. A quick nest ledge check again, Kate had settled under the camera, Cinnamon was moving about and finally went next to Kate. Sunshine took off in the fog, probably to the Sheraton letters above the nest ledge. We closed the watch at 8:45 p.m. Fog has moved in and we could no longer see either the nest ledge or the neighbouring buildings. It was a misty day today with light rain, drizzle and more fog.

!!! The three remaining fledglings are back in the house!
June 23, 2011 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre
Mark Nash Reports:

A big thank you to Zoe who is one of the CPF fledge watch team members at the Toronto Sheraton for snapping a quick shot of the nest ledge.

Beyond popular belief, even after the young fledgelings have been able to take their first flights and been able to hold their altitude, we all must remember that they are still solely dependant on their parents for both food and protection for the nest 30 to 60 days while they are being trained by their parents.

The nest ledge is the only safe place that they know, and it offers protection to the fledglings from all of the dangers that they will soon learn about as they experience thee things on a case by case basis. The nest ledge will be active for some time to come as each of the fledgling will be returning to nest ledge (as soon as they can get there on their own steam) each night. Remember,, its still the only home that they know is safe.

This photo clearly demonstrates this fact, as we see all three of the surviving fledglings.

Today was one of several of heavy rainstorms, mist and no untoward activities.  Everytime the rain started up, Cinnamon and Kate would suddenly get active, flapping their wings, moving around, giving us anxious moments that they would start out in the downpour.  Fortunately, they didn't!  Sunshine also gave us a few minutes of breath-holding, when she landed on top of the "C" of the Sheraton Centre sign, at the beginning of one heaviest downpours.  She was having trouble holding her balance, her wings were going like mad and she as slipping down the front of the "C"...  It was really frightening, for her, I'm sure, but for Zoe and I on the ground, too!!  Fortunately, she finally got a grip on something, held on and after the rain abated, gave several massive shakes, sending water flying and finally took to the air, with confidence!

The most extraordinary two episodes I witnessed today were of Sunshine learning the finer points of receiving food from her dad, Tiago, in mid flight!!  I was fortunate, both times, to be up on the 43rd floor, watching it all unfold right in front of me.  The first one was a bit sloppy, but totally successful...until Sunshine tried to land, with this small bird in her talons.  To put it nicely, she skidded somewhat, but finally came to a halt and then took the food out of my sight.  But the second try was magnificent!!!  Sunshine chased up on Tiago, squawking at her amazing volume, turned right upside down as she reached her dad, reached up and deliberately took the Starling from him.  All coolly calculated, very precise!!  I'm sure my mouth was hanging open, as I saw the whole thing unfold!!  Then she righted herself and landed on a fairly wide ledge, doing so deliberately and then looked around as if to say, "Hey, I'm soooo cool!!"!!  The funny thing was her handling of the prey.  Instead of plucking it, she dragged it around a bit and then eviscerated it, pulling out bits and pieces, enjoying them immensely!!  Oh well, she'll get the hang of that skill, too, and it was so great to see her enjoying her reward!!

The most extraordinary two episodes I witnessed today were of Sunshine learning the finer points of receiving food from her dad, Tiago, in mid flight!!  I was fortunate, both times, to be up on the 43rd floor, watching it all unfold right in front of me.  The first one was a bit sloppy, but totally successful...until Sunshine tried to land, with this small bird in her talons.  To put it nicely, she skidded somewhat, but finally came to a halt and then took the food out of my sight.  But the second try was magnificent!!!  Sunshine chased up on Tiago, squawking at her amazing volume, turned right upside down as she reached her dad, reached up and deliberately took the Starling from him.  All coolly calculated, very precise!!  I'm sure my mouth was hanging open, as I saw the whole thing unfold!!  Then she righted herself and landed on a fairly wide ledge, doing so deliberately and then looked around as if to say, "Hey, I'm soooo cool!!"!!  The funny thing was her handling of the prey.  Instead of plucking it, she dragged it around a bit and then eviscerated it, pulling out bits and pieces, enjoying them immensely!!  Oh well, she'll get the hang of that skill, too, and it was so great to see her enjoying her reward!!

What great experiences you are having, Anne, and thanks for sharing them with us!

!!! Much Appreciation, Heartfelt Thanks
June 24, 2011 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre
Linda Woods Reports:

GREAT BIG THANKS, and much appreciation to the Staff of The Keg, on York St. Toronto, and Thomas Chesterfield, Corporate Concierge of Oxford Properties at 120 Adelaide St, Toronto, for their unending persistence to find help for our young male Peregrine Falcon, Cinnamon.

Cinnamon in attempt to take yet another flight brushed a building and came to the sidewalk outside the Keg Restaurant on York St at Lunch time.  Keg Staff pulled into action and had the fledgling placed in a box and secured the area, so it would not come to harm, from foot traffic or vehicles.  Thomas Chesterfield made numerous calls to different Toronto agencies, before he reached us. I was immediately dispatched to the site and found Cinnamon, safe , secure with no injuries.

He was later returned to the nest ledge, to give him a second chance of making a successful flight.

Can’t say how thankful we are for their assistance to help this member of  a Species At Risk. It is most rewarding that in a large city such as Toronto, there are people that  do care about the wildlife that resides along side the huge glass towers that dot Toronto’s skyline.

Please if you are visiting Toronto, please drop by the Keg on York st, have meal and say thank-you to the following Keg Staff;

Cassandra, Sabrina, Sheena, Jordan, Heather, Agnes, Aja, Elizabeth and to Kelly McGoey, Lunch Manager for allowing her staff to go beyond their regular duties.

With Much Appreciation;

Linda Woods, Zoe, Annie, Harry, Paul, Vanessa, Mark Nash, Marion Nash, and the Rochester New York Falcon Crew

You're right, not first cousins, but whatever degree of cousin-ness it is.  Freedom (Archer's father) & Rhea Mae are full siblings, both offspring of M&K.  So, in human terms, Rhea Mae is Archer's aunt...therefore all their offspring are cousins.

And no, it doesn't matter at all...just that margaret commented that they looked alike in their carriers and was checking that they are related...

When is an eyas not an eyas anymore?  When it sits in the nest until its chest feathers become adult white!  And that's going to happen to Kate and Cinnamon, if they stay up there much longer!!  What a day!  They sat there, looking as if they might go...  They flapped, jumped in and out of the ledge, flapped some more.  And you think my hair was grey before!!  You take your eyes off them and they could be long gone, visiting some lofty building to the east, to the west, to the south!  Yikes!  But the end of the day found them sitting up there still, kakking softly at me, sitting 'way down below, permanent circles around my eyes from my binoculars, butt about to fall off!  Truly, I think they want to stay up there!  And who can blame them -- food delivered to the door, lovely breezes, shelter from the pouring rain!

Sunshine, on the other hand, is amazingly mobile.  I watched in awe as she played tag with her parents, kakking at the top of her lungs the whole way!  She is really a noisy one!  I never have to look hard for her -- she announces her presence loudly and clearly!!  And can she fly!  Her whole family tree would be totally proud of her!  She's fast, fairly accurate, energetic and proud!  I thought she had settled in for the night on the "S" of the Sheraton sign.  But come 8pm, off she goes again, tries for the top of the tall building her dad's sitting on, doesn't quite make it, starts around again and he takes off in a stoop, just misses her, and the chase is on!  Twisting and turning, Sunshine kakking her head off, swooping, reversing in a flash, climbing.  She's just the greatest!!  I just stand there in awe, holding my breath, wondering how all the people walking by cannot see all that's going on in their sky!  Actually a lot of people ask me what I'm looking at -- and when I tell them, they are so interested, quite taken by the whole scene!  If those two sit up there long enough, all the people of Toronto are going to be falcon watchers!  Bonus!!

Anne in Toronto

By the way, I took a series of photos of Cinnamon's rescue...  Linda put some of them in her CPF report.  If anyone wants to see them -- there are 14 -- I'll be happy to send them on...  I don't remember how to post them here...

CLING-ONS!
June 25, 2011 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre
Linda Woods Reports:

Ground Hog Day continues, I swear we have cling-ons. I checked the ages I have for banding day on May 24th, Kate was estimated to be 23 Days of age on that date, which makes her approximately 54 days old today!!! give or take a day or two. What is she waiting for… foreclosure?  Adults were not very active in the area this afternoon,evening. Could it be the film crew activity on the roof area across the street. Maybe, but the activity level from Kate and Cinnamon has not changed much. Still testing their wings, some running of the ledge, not a lot of vocalisingfrom Kate and Cinnamon. Food drops were made,small portions. Cinnamon is not getting much, Kate and Sunshine grabbing most of it.  Sunshine continues to spend much of her time away from the area, it appears south of King St. Perhaps BCE Place, both Rhea Mae and Tiago seem to head off in that area.

Watch Continues.

Still on the ledge
June 25, 2011 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre
Harry Crawford Reports:

When I arrived just before 7:30am, Cinnamon and Kate were on the
nest ledge with Sunshine on the top of the logo, just above them.
Mom was on the north west corner of 130 Adelaide and dad was on the
west KPMG logo.  Cinnamon did a lot of flapping but both birds
remained on the ledge.  They were fed just before 7am [webcam] and
again, just after 8:30am.  Cinnamon did get a good portion of both
feeds.

I left just after 11:30am with Marion, Zoe, Annie and Janine on the
watch.

What a day we had at the Sheraton site...  Everything was against Kate and Cinnamon doing anything, going anywhere.  First, yesterday and today, they were filming a movie, involving the outside of a strategic building, the area was loaded with noisy trucks, wandering, loud people, bright lights all over the place.  People, despite being asked not to, told clearly why, were up on that roof all day long...  A small, bright white blimp was taking aerial photos of a future building site next door and floated in the way.  A shiny Mylar balloon slowly floated through peregrine space...  The whole day was peregrine disastrous.  The adults couldn't sit on that same building, where they normally sit to encourage the would-be fledglings out, couldn't fly their usual course to the nest site, were basically cut off, frustrated from the normal course of things.  There were no fly-bys, no luring of the youngsters with food, no regular presence...

Poor Kate and Cinnamon weren't fed until after 7pm and then Kate grabbed the main, Sunshine zoomed in to help herself...always the opportunist...the successful.  Cinnamon chewed on some tiny scrapes, tongued some feathers....nothing substantial.  It was nothing short of truly dismaying.  He was no match for the two bigger, stronger females.  It's amazing to see all three of them on the front of the ledge.  Sunshine is huge, a third bigger than Kate, twice as big as Cinnamon...  It makes one sad, less than optimistic.  However, nature can be strange, things may turn a good corner tomorrow.  I'm certainly not writing Cinnamon off yet.  We can but hope, count on the cleverness of these good, already proven parents, count on nature eventually balancing things out.  We can hope...

However, I feel that I must very seriously stress that one really does have to be realistic, has to be willing to truly understand survival of the fittest, whether it is what our human hearts want or not.  Life is so tough.  Survival is truly hard.  But the fact that peregrines are rebounding proves that all is possible, all is still hopeful in general.  Still, one has to remember that Cinnamon, although indeed a real cutie, is a cutie because he is so small, has such big, dark eyes, is the underdog, but, and it's a big but, he has already been given one reprieve, after not making some right decision, not being able to cope.  Perhaps this is not his time, something that's not meant to be...  Although this is certainly not what I want -- remember, I have looked him directly in the face from one foot away, fell instantly and completely in love with him -- is not what any of you want, reality is not listening to us, is not at our command.  I have to believe in what is truly best...  And still keep my fingers crossed that all will have a story-book ending.  Because that is what I want, what you want...

I will be there again tomorrow.  Am more than willing to put in long hours, put up with a cricked neck, a numb butt...if it will help at all.  But I refuse to be angry, totally disillusioned with the lack of fairness, if things just don't go the most wanted, the most wished for way...  I have to believe that nature works the way it does for a reason.  So, I will let you know what goes on tomorrow, will hopefully have good news for you...  It's all I can say...  Wish there was more...

Anne in Toronto

Thank you for the report Anne.  Loving these birds can certainly be a roller coaster.  I'm just glad neither Kate nor Cinnamon tried to go yesterday with all the activity...recipe for disaster!  I have faith that scrappy little Cinnamon will do just fine.  We have to have faith...sometimes it's all we have.

!!! Finally, Cinnamon and Kate Fledge!! AM report.
June 27, 2011 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre
CPF Postmaster Reports:

Monday June 27th - 2011 AM report:
The morning started with a flurry of calls, incoming e-mail and photo snap-shots regarding the Toronto Sheraton nest site. Shortly after 10am this morning, both Kate and little Cinnamon left the ledge and took their first flight, sort of.

While Cinnamon had earlier tried his flight skills earlier with disastrous results leaving him downed on the sidewalk at just feet of busy traffic at York and Richmond streets in downtown Toronto, Kate has yet to take her maiden flight and test her wings.

Had it not been for the heroic and dedicated efforts of the caring staff at the Keg Restaurant protecting Cinnamon with a box and literally standing on guard duty until CPF fledge watch volunteers arrived to complete the rescue, it is very likely that he would have been trampled or run over in the swarm of down town traffic.

While the two fledglings remain together on the roof top of 120 Adelaide - (a favourite first landing spot of many of the Sheraton juveniles over the years), this roof top is much lower in elevation compared to the 43 story nest ledge elevation at the Toronto Sheraton.

One of many photos sent in today - (this one from Eileen in New York state) shows both resident adults on the nest ledge checking out the situation just after the two fledged this morning.

Sunshine (I'm pretty sure) back for a visit


Title: Re: Rhea Mae and Tiago's Webcam - Toronto - Canadian Peregrine Foundation
Post by: anneintoronto on 27-Jun-11, 11:09:53 pm
I've just got in from the fledge watch at the Sheraton Centre.  What an interesting day!  I arrived at 11:30am, in time to take over from Harry.  I'd already heard from Zoe that our two "cling-ons" had finally fledged.  And you all know this, too.  Great news!  They had both made it south across to the top of 120 Adelaide Street, were quite close to each other.  Sunshine joined them on and off all day, spent a lot of her time flying around, occasionally interacting with passing adults.

Finally, mid-afternoon, and without warning, Kate took off, did very well and returned to the top of 120.  This was the beginning of a number of quite good flights, pretty decent landings by her.  Her most interesting and heart-stopping was just after 8pm.  Suddenly she decided to return to the nest ledge...  Sunshine was up there...  She only made it to the 38th floor, landed on a small, slightly open window -- the kind that swings open from the bottom, only opens out about 10 inches -- and held on, flapping and flapping hard!  Suddenly, with a yank, that propelled her out backwards, prompted her to do a kind of flip and head west, she pulled away -- I think maybe a talon was stuck in the rubber molding around the window...  She certainly pulled the window open as far as it would go before escaping.  The beginning of this flight was a bit ragged, she looked like she was tiring and barely made it to the middle of the east wall of the Hilton Hotel.  And she grabbed a crack and just hung there, wings fully spread, tail spread, head peering around!  She looked all the world like a huge bat against the white wall!!  A stunning sight!!  She hung on for a good 4 minutes, finally released, beat her wings like mad and made it to the top of the next building south with little space or energy to spare!  I have never seen anything like it.  What a performance!  If she thought she would try to give us both heart attacks, she did well!!  I held my breath the whole time!!  Couldn't believe my eyes!!  Eventually, she left that building, headed back to 120, didn't quite make it, landed on a lower section of 130 Adelaide, but still up probably 20- 25 stories, and settled on the window washing apparatus for the night.  She was one tired little fledgling!!

Cinnamon.  Dearest little Cinnamon.  He didn't move too far all day.  Did some momentary flapping, moved about half-way across the north side of 120 over the day.  But never flew...  His moment might well come.  I still do have hope.  But he doesn't have the energy of his sisters, just wasn't prepared to leave the safety of his location.  Mostly stayed tucked up to the wall, safe from everything...  Does he remember with trepidation his last fledge?  Does he not feel strong enough?  Why is he so hesitant?  I just don't know.  He really wasn't going anywhere...

And I really don't know about the adults and feedings.  There may well have been a food drop before I arrived...  But there wasn't one until a good way through the afternoon and I saw no indication that Cinnamon got any of it...even approached...  The adults did fly by occasionally, did get chased by an ever kakking Sunshine.  But I don't understand the logistics or patterns of this food drop thing...  I certainly hope to see more interaction between the adults and the two newest fledglings tomorrow.  Certainly, I could have missed a drop, Linda could have.  We did have times when we were inside going upstairs to the 43rd floor, in buying another coffee, using the facilities...  But it all seemed to be lacking...  I feel really quite uneasy about the whole thing...

Anyway, still glancing up as we reluctantly walked away, we headed home at 9:20.  Truly hope that both Kate and Cinnamon stay where they are until the sun rises tomorrow morning.  I felt inspired by some of the efforts today, curious about why the adults were really nearby so little, where Sunshine and the adults disappeared to at the end of the day, nervous about Cinnamon and his future...  And will be back tomorrow to watch this whole thing unfold.  As it will...

I'm really shocked about the lack of feedings there. RM and Tiago, it doesn't sound like them. I guess only they know the reason for all this. Hope today is much better and little Cinni gets some good intake. Maybe Sunshine gloms it all when they try to take it to him. You know how big sister's are!! Thanks Anne.

In the past, I *think* that the adults feed them a little less when they are soon to fly.  Maybe they figure little Cinnamon has enough trouble lifting off without weighing him down with a lot of food.

I just got this from Zoe, a fellow watcher, who is at work, but saw Harry, our early morning watcher, on her coffee break:

"Harry can see all the family - the 2 [Kate and Cinnamon] are on the Bell building and Cinnamon has been doing several flights keeping height including the "E" on the Sheraton."

Well, that sounds positive!  The "E" is up higher than the nest ledge!!  Cinnamon is making good, despite the odds!  Maybe he got fed earlier this morning.  I sure do hope so!!  Just thought I'd let you all know.  I am heading down for 2pm today, needed a slight reprieve from going in earlier...  Will let you know about the day tonight.

Although we got a sneak peek from Anne & Zoe (Anne, I forgot to ask you to thank Zoe too for passing the word) this report is bringing on the happy tears!  I personally think Cinnamon was waiting for Kate to be ready to fly and stayed with her until he knew she was OK.  :clap:  :wub:


Cinnamon flying well
June 28, 2011 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre
Harry Crawford Reports:

When I arrived on site, I found that both Cinnamon and Kate had
moved from their last reported location last evening.  I couldn’t
see Cinnamon but Kate was on the upper railing of the old Bell
building.  One adult was visible.  By 8am, Cinnamon joined Kate on
the Bell building and both adults were on the north side of 130
Victoria.  Cinnamon is flying well.  Cinnamon is flying very well.
He made about five [about a block or more in length] flights,
maintaining height and landing well.  At one point, with Linda
watching from 43, he joined Sunshine for some flying.

Kate made about three flights, simply to relocate to different areas
of the Bell building.  She had no difficulty but these were not
challenging flights.  I would like to see her do some distance
flying.  Hopefully she will do so later today.

All three accounted for at dark
June 28, 2011 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre
Linda Woods Reports:

Lots of shuffling around by Kate and Cinnamon, but the end of day, we weren’t sure who we were watching closely. I couldn’t get a band colour to Identify.  One bird was on the Phoenix building and was being watched closely by Annie when I arrived. Janine joined us shortly afterwards.  This bird flew over to the lower 130 south side and ran the east side of this area before taking off again. It was on Lombard Place for a short time before taking flight again and back to lower 130. Off again and it ended up on the low roof of south east corner of Richmond and York just north of the Keg.  Annie and Janine stayed on the ground, while I headed for the 43rd. This bird took off again and headed south along York St and we lost sight of it. We finally found it on the east side of the DBRS building. At this time I took the opportunity to scan for the other two.  At dark we had a juvenile on the north east lower 120 Adelaide, lying down, as it was earlier. Sunshine on the north east corner of 130 Adelaide and one on the DBRS building.  Apparently, filming will resume tomorrow in and around this direct area. Not sure if they are filming again on the roof areas, like they were over the weekend. The film shoot notice that went around the neighbourhood did not indicate that.

We only saw one food drop, as we spent a lot of time on the south side of 120 and 130. Not sure who got a share of this meal

Post by: anneintoronto on 29-Jun-11, 12:35:07 am
There really isn't too much I can add to Linda Woods' report.  We did see flying today.  Some just short "hops", some a little more extensive.  Of course, it's hard to tell who is who up in the sky.  When I arrived today, I couldn't see any birds around, so went up to the 43rd floor, spotted a couple of juvies.  Then went south down York Street to look around for them from ground level and buy a coffee.  Stopped to talk with some bike couriers, awaiting job orders outside the coffee shop.  Boy, were they enthusiastic, knowledgeable about peregrines, red-tails!!  I was impressed, enjoyed talking with them!  Then I glanced up, just...because, and there was a juvie sitting on a low building right next door, wandering around, being quiet, a little lost...  I couldn't believe my eyes!  So sat there, coffeeless, and watched, with relief, when he (I think it was Cinnamon) flew up to a somewhat higher building.  An interesting start to a long watch!  And Linda described the rest...

Aside from the day's activities, I have a question that has been lurking in the back of my head for a few days now.  And I can't find an answer anywhere...  If a young peregrine stays in the nesting area well past due, doesn't progress in the natural time frame nature sets out, do the parents come to a point where their responsibility in the care and training of this young bird ends?  Do they, by instinct, know that there is something "wrong", not part of the norm, and cease to be responsible?  That's my unanswered question.

I know that some of you are going to react to this question, say that this isn't possible...  But I need to know why Rhea Mae and Tiago aren't paying attention to Kate and Cinnamon.  Sunshine, who progressed "normally" was fed, was nurtured, has been taught the grace of flying, the skill of food passing, the cleverness of catching and eating on her own.  On and off, all day, I see her seriously learning from her parents, gracing the sky with extraordinary flights, "games" of tag that leave me breathless.  But this is not happening with the other two.  There is virtually no interaction, no regular feedings, no adult presence when it comes to them.  Obviously this puzzles me.  I know for a fact, that Rhea Mae and Tiago are proven good parents.  I am not criticizing them.  But I wonder what nature is "telling" them, why this "normal" attention to one offspring, the reverse for the other two...  Do any of you know, either from other experiences, from something you've read elsewhere?

I would appreciate some input here... 

Thanks!  Anne in Toronto

Post by: carly on 29-Jun-11, 06:14:06 am
I personally (and this is my opinion only but based on my fledge watches) don't think they would abandon the kids at this point, had there been something wrong they would have known at birth as we've sometimes seen on cam when a parent stops feeding a baby and they perish on cam.  I've seen females fledge at day 50 and boys fledge at day 48...it is actually not that unusual.  The reason they're devoting so much attention to Sunshine at this point is because she has caught on so fast and it and will enable them to focus on the other two when they are ready.  It may look like the parents don't care but from my observations, the parents always know where the kids and once the kids advance the parents step in with more support.  To a falcon parent, the job isn't done until they teach the kids to hunt for themselves, it's hard wired into them to do this.    There have also been some famous cases..like Polly in Montreal where the parents allowed her to stay well beyond the normal time frame due to her injury.  

I know it can be hard to watch, there have been many times I've cursed our pair here and yelled at them for seemingly ignoring certain juvies in trouble but they always proved my fears wrong.  Mackenzie, our 2009 male is now nesting at Burlington and I can tell you even Bruce thought he'd never make it - in fact one night he told me to prepare myself to find him dead because he had been gone so long and likely didn't have what it took..I tell you I was in tears and barely slept that night and the next day Mac made the flight of his life right back to the nest ledge - I was standing in the road cheering him on with tears running down my face.  He spent over a week in trouble without food and parents, was rescued 3 times and was well behind the other 2 and now Mark and everyone down there is raving about him and saying they've never seen a falcon hunt like he can so don't give in to despair.  You're tired from fledge watch and you want them to succeed so much and it can be difficult to see the bigger picture or even like what you're seeing at times but hang in there.. The fact that Kate and Cin have made it this far is is a good sign, some kids are just slower picking up but once they 'get it' it sticks.  It's hard for us humans to understand the lessons being taught to the falcons but they are birds of prey and they need to be tough to survive and what we perceive as being cruel is in reality a lesson in survival for them.

Oh boy, I have no idea Anne and not even going to take a stab at this. Worries me why they are ignoring the 2. Just doesn't sound like RM or Tiago. As long as the Juvies are around and flying, I would assume feedings are an instinct thing. This is strange behavior. Could Sunshine be interfering with the feedings and RM is focusing on just her right now? I just don't know.

Thanks carly.  I was thinking something similar-Kate & Cinnamon aren't quite ready for flight lessons yet & Sunshine has been at it for over 2 weeks now-but I'm glad to hear your experiences bear that out.  The only thing I can add is I've seen more of both adults perched on the ledge since Kate & Cinnamon flew & I've been thinking they're trying to get them back to the ledge. Once that's accomplished the rest of the lessons can begin in earnest.

New update just posted from Harry:

Cinnamon seen feeding!
June 29, 2011 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre
Harry Crawford Reports:

At 7:30am, Cinnamon was on the old portion of the Bell building and
Kate was on the penthouse of 120 Adelaide.  As I was moving through
the courtyard, Sunshine came screaming in from the south west and
disappeared from view.  From 23 at 9am, Cinnamon was feeding on the
south west corner of the roof area of the National Bank at York and
Adelaide.  Just to his west was Rhea Mae, keeping a sister [to her
west] from grabbing the food.  The feeding took about 20 minutes and
then Cinnamon took off.  Rhea Mae went over and started to feed on
the left-overs.  I went down to street level and by the time I got
there, the sister was feeding on the scraps.

Linda arrived and we went up to 23 only to find no birds in view.
We then went to King St. to see the south views of the nearby
buildings - still nothing in view.  I think the birds are moving
around more and could also be trying to get out of the wind [Zoe] as
it was quite strong.

I think it was Alkyonis here that was rescued a couple of times and had issues.  She was seen, last year I think, to everyone's amazement.  She was a bit before my time so Carol, Shaky or one of the other watchers could probably provide details. 

I really think the non feeding was cause they were trying to coax them to fly and be able to lift off.  But what the heck do I know?!

For sure Jeanne, they use food as a motivator to train them. It's really no different than when keepers train zoo animals or when you train your pet, you use food to reward good behaviour or to get them to learn a new behaviour.

I expect if they just fed them constantly, they'd just nap and not want to go anywhere like most kids  :lol:

Yes, you are correct Jeanne, Alkyonis was one of our problem children.  She came down twice.  The first time was near the Kodak Tower.  The Watchers were able to rescue her and get her to the vet.  She had a bit of a droop in her wing and she was kept in rehab for quite awhile.  Then she was released at the tower.

Not long after that, Lisa came to me and said that she just got a call from June.  There was a downed Falcon at the animal services bldg just north of the Kodak Tower.  We both went over to make sure that it was a Peregrine and if so which one.  We got a quick look of her and we were able to positively ID her as Alkyonis.  Again she was released.  

Imagine our surprise last year when we received word that she had been positively ID'd.  After her rocky start, she made it to adulthood.  What an awesome surprise.   :clap:

I personally (and this is my opinion only but based on my fledge watches) don't think they would abandon the kids at this point, had there been something wrong they would have known at birth as we've sometimes seen on cam when a parent stops feeding a baby and they perish on cam.  I've seen females fledge at day 50 and boys fledge at day 48...it is actually not that unusual.  The reason they're devoting so much attention to Sunshine at this point is because she has caught on so fast and it and will enable them to focus on the other two when they are ready.  It may look like the parents don't care but from my observations, the parents always know where the kids and once the kids advance the parents step in with more support.  To a falcon parent, the job isn't done until they teach the kids to hunt for themselves, it's hard wired into them to do this.    There have also been some famous cases..like Polly in Montreal where the parents allowed her to stay well beyond the normal time frame due to her injury.  

I know it can be hard to watch, there have been many times I've cursed our pair here and yelled at them for seemingly ignoring certain juvies in trouble but they always proved my fears wrong.  Mackenzie, our 2009 male is now nesting at Burlington and I can tell you even Bruce thought he'd never make it - in fact one night he told me to prepare myself to find him dead because he had been gone so long and likely didn't have what it took..I tell you I was in tears and barely slept that night and the next day Mac made the flight of his life right back to the nest ledge - I was standing in the road cheering him on with tears running down my face.  He spent over a week in trouble without food and parents, was rescued 3 times and was well behind the other 2 and now Mark and everyone down there is raving about him and saying they've never seen a falcon hunt like he can so don't give in to despair.  You're tired from fledge watch and you want them to succeed so much and it can be difficult to see the bigger picture or even like what you're seeing at times but hang in there.. The fact that Kate and Cin have made it this far is is a good sign, some kids are just slower picking up but once they 'get it' it sticks.  It's hard for us humans to understand the lessons being taught to the falcons but they are birds of prey and they need to be tough to survive and what we perceive as being cruel is in reality a lesson in survival for them.

Thank you, Carly, for your well thought out and resourceful response to my question.  I really appreciated your input!  I believe that you're right that it is a good sign that Kate and Cinnamon did fledge, have survived and that they are birds of prey and have to learn to be tough.  Again, thanks to you and to you others who added suggestions, ideas!

Today was an odd day, as little was seen of the peregrines at all!  When I first arrived, I did go up to the 43rd floor and spotted two juvies on 130 and 150 Adelaide Street -- both relaxing out of the wind.  It was good to know that they were still safe and sound.  I did see some great aerial work by an adult, Tiago, I think, and Kate, as they toughed their way up to the Sheraton sign letters.  Kate isn't as smooth as Sunshine yet, but really is getting there.  Sunshine I didn't see at all!  She's off being independent, practising, I presume!  My last sighting of Cinnamon was enchanting and I will remember it for a long time.  He was on top of 120 Adelaide Street, which is a very tall building, and was playing in a water puddle!  He'd drink a little, splash right through to the other side, flip his wings in the water, shake, drink some more, skirt the edges, fly a little way away, then stomp back in a determined manner, drink some more, stand in the middle and look proud of himself!!!  It was fascinating to watch, very pleasing!  It was definitely him, as his red taped band was visible.  And there was an adult on the next building, carefully watching this son at his play!  And so I left him.  Smiling away to myself!

The watch at the Sheraton is wrapping up.  Various times will be spot checked tomorrow by Harry, Zoe, Linda and me.  I will go down for a little while in the afternoon, just to go up to the 43rd floor one more time, see what and who I can.  But Kate and Cinnamon seem to be starting to do quite well, have been fed some, are starting to develop their skills.  I do so hope that they do well, manage to persist and grow, turn into skilled and daunting adults!!  If wishes could make this possible, I'm sure that their way would be clear, as I know you all are pulling hard for them.  It's really all we can do.  The best we can do.  The rest is up to them!

Thank you for the report, Anne!  I can just see our little Mini playing in the puddle...what a beautiful picture!



Rhea Mae has been on the ledge for a while now.  She keeps looking off to her left -west, I think?-probably one of the youngsters over that way...she's watching...

!!! Cinnamon Doing Well
June 29, 2011 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre
Linda Woods Reports:
Annie was on site when I arrived, she had seen two juvies, but all was quiet for a long time. I went up to 43 and did not see any birds in view at all. Annie and I watched the film crew do their thing. At 7p.m. back up to the 43 where Annie and I saw Cinnamon playing in puddle of water on the very top of 120 Adelaide. Cinnamon also took this time to have a drink as well. Adult on the north east corner of 130 Adelaide keeping watch. Back down to street level. If we had not seen any other peregrine activity, we were going to call it a night early since the watch started on June 8th. At 8p.m., I went up to 43rd for a last head count and Annie ( Thanks Annie) headed home.

Of course, Cinnamon had huddled next to the stove pipe on the top of 120, but was getting active. He scooted across the roof top and flew off attempting to land on the upper 130. Missed the landing and recovered nicely flying around 130 and back to the top of 130. At this time a second juvie flew in front of the club lounge windows and it appeared to head to the nest. Cinnamon took off from 130 and flew to the top of the Sheraton above the “R”.  Back to ground level, Cinnamon took off again and over to the top of 130.
 
 He is maintaining his height,  and recovering well from aborted landings. The adults are attending and providing food. Sunshine and Kate were scarce this evening and have been off for most of the afternoon and evening.
 
 At this time, and with the agreement of Mark Nash that we are good to cut back on the watch and do spot checks only.
 
Thanks, Harry, Zoe, Annie, Janine, Vanessa, Marion, Sharon, for the long hours for this unusual extended watch.

Hey Anne.  I know the fledge watch is winding down, but I hope you can still continue to watch them learn to fly.  That was always the fun time for the Rochester Watchers, after nervously watching them fledge.  It is hard to watch there though.  Too many tall buildings.  Enjoy this time with them.

Thanks so much to you, Linda and all the other CPF Watchers that helped keep Rhea Mae and Tiago's young ones safe.  Bravo!   :clap:

You can be sure that I will be wandering down that way in the next weeks.  I like to walk around in my city daily anyway and the juvies certainly are a draw for me to head that way!  Now that I've learned their territory, it's easier to spot them.  And I do love to watch all of them -- adult and juvie -- soaring around, travelling at tremendous speeds as if it is a walk in the park!!  They are totally amazing, just awesome!  I will also be wandering over to the King Street East site to watch the two juvies over there as well.  Originally it was thought that the natural progression would be to finish off the Sheraton site, then proceed to the King St. one, but the sequence was off and I was only over there once!  The Sheraton group really threw some curves into the mix, the watch lasted much longer than expected!  Anyway, I will let you all know how the three at the Sheraton are doing, what I'm seeing!

Thanks for your kind words!  I consider myself to have gained so much in the last weeks and, aside from witnessing many interesting peregrine feats, I have made some new friends!  Such a bonus!

A quiet morning
June 30, 2011 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre
Harry Crawford Reports:

I did a head check this morning around 7:30am.  Cinnamon was on the
south east corner of the DBRS building and one of the girls was on
the north east corner of the National Bank building.  Tiago was
asleep on the south Sheraton logo and Rhea May was sleeping on the
south west corner of the lower Sheraton building, next to the
running track.  I couldn’t see the other girl from ground level.

From 23, Rhea Mae had left, Cinnamon was also gone but the girl on
the National Bank building was still there for a brief moment.  Back
on ground level, everyone was gone from view except Tiago.  I left
by checking out the area around University Ave. and Wellington [as
well as Metro Hall].  I didn’t see or hear any peregrine activity.

I was down at the Sheraton site from 1:15 until just before 4pm today.  I went up to the top of the Sheraton Centre several times, wandered all around the area down below and saw one adult, sitting on 130 Adelaide Street.  Had lunch with Zoe in the courtyard and we kept our eyes to the skies.  We saw nothing!  That was it!  It's been a beautiful day -- light breezes, sunny, just totally pleasant.  Just figured that the peregrines are more likely to fly around, be out and about, earlier in the morning, nearer to dusk.

 
Then, at 6pm, I got a call from Linda Woods.  Apparently Kate had a brush with a building about 2pm and ended up on a sidewalk on University Avenue just west from the Sheraton!!  No one was more surprised than me!  It turns out that Linda dashed to the scene, didn't have her radio, so didn't contact either Zoe or me, dealt with the immediate problem herself, was met by Mark Nash, who examined Kate, pronounced her in good shape and put her back on the nest ledge.  I'm sure there will be a fuller report from Linda soon.  I was just totally relieved that Kate hadn't hurt herself!!  And will get her second chance...

Probably is Kate.  The adults often visit the nest ledge, so in all likelihood are aware she is there, will be up to see her.  I'm very relieved that she didn't injure herself.  Just goes to show you that a few days of flying doesn't a full-fledged peregrine make!  Zoe and I are going back down tomorrow, to see what's up...  Will let you know what we see.

!!! Kate Rescued
June 30, 2011 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre
Linda Woods Reports:

This afternoon Mark Nash received a call from property management south west of the Sheraton Nest site, stating they had large strange bird sitting on the sidewalk outside their building.  I was dispatched to investigate. When I arrived, staff had pillioned and taped off the area surrounding the bird. One quick glance and sure enough, it’s a juvenile peregrine falcon. I couldn’t see who it was, this large bird was lying down having enough of the two legged creatures with no feathers staring at her.

The staff were very helpful and provided me with a cloth  sheet to pick up the rather healthy female peregrine and secure her in a box until Mark and Marion arrived.  Minutes later, Mark and Marion arrived with nets and carrier. No net needed, but she was feisty as Mark picked her up. On examination is was discovered it was Kate from the Sheraton Nest Site, indicated by her blue band and Canadian Wildlife Bands.  A small crowd had already gathered from the start were very inquisitive and Mark was more than happy to show Kate to her admirers and explain the history of the peregrines in Ontario and more importantly, the peregrines in the downtown core.

We then took Kate back to the Sheraton, Mark and Marion examined her thoroughly and she had no injuries and she appeared to be well fed. We gave her water and she was good to go back to the nest ledge. Where at 6:50p.m. she is still there, looking out.

Many, many thanks to the staff and office tenants of 180 Wellington St and local tenants of the adjoining buildings. Deep appreciation to the gentlemen and ladies from Avison and Young Property Management Group for going beyond the call  and the many phone calls they made to different agencies to ensure this bird was placed in the proper hands. And also, Sandra Celli, of Avison and Young Property Management Group, who has supported the peregrines nest at 18 King S for many years.

Thanks Mark and Marion for fighting gridlock on a holiday weekend in downtown Toronto to come to Kate’s rescue.

Linda Woods Reports:
This morning by 11:00 I had all five in view. Two juveniles on the lower east side of 130 Adelaide. One Juvenile on 150 York Street, one adult on the upper 120 Adelaide. Kate was on 150 York, Cinnamon and Sunshine were on the lower east side of 130 Adelaide. Swing stage for 130 Adelaide was lowered just below the upper roof line. Window washers out on the Hilton Hotel
 
Late this afternoon, again at 6:10 pm Rhea Mae on the upper railing of 120 Adelaide, Kate on 150 York St., Cinnamon on the lower east side of 130 Adelaide. 6:15pm Sunshine made an appearance on the east side of 120 Adelaide and Cinnamon took off and over to the Phoenix building. Kate had moved off the corner of 150 York Street and has moved to the inner south area of the same building sitting next the cooling tower railing of 150 York St.
 
I left after Cinnamon made his flight over to the Phoenix. Cinnamon is getting around, but haven’t seen him do any long flights as yet. He his taking his time getting around. Kate is taking her time, being a little cautious after her sidewalk adventure.

!!! Sunshine, Kate, Cinnamon in View
July 01, 2011 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre
Linda Woods Reports:
This morning by 11:00 I had all five in view. Two juveniles on the lower east side of 130 Adelaide. One Juvenile on 150 York Street, one adult on the upper 120 Adelaide. Kate was on 150 York, Cinnamon and Sunshine were on the lower east side of 130 Adelaide. Swing stage for 130 Adelaide was lowered just below the upper roof line. Window washers out on the Hilton Hotel
 
Late this afternoon, again at 6:10 pm Rhea Mae on the upper railing of 120 Adelaide, Kate on 150 York St., Cinnamon on the lower east side of 130 Adelaide. 6:15pm Sunshine made an appearance on the east side of 120 Adelaide and Cinnamon took off and over to the Phoenix building. Kate had moved off the corner of 150 York Street and has moved to the inner south area of the same building sitting next the cooling tower railing of 150 York St.
 
I left after Cinnamon made his flight over to the Phoenix. Cinnamon is getting around, but haven’t seen him do any long flights as yet. He his taking his time getting around. Kate is taking her time, being a little cautious after her sidewalk adventure.

Zoe and I were down at the Sheraton site from 12:30pm until 5pm.  We certainly didn't see as much as Linda, but did see several adults in the area, finally heard a noisy juvie flying somewhere nearby -- not Sunshine's vocalization, so may have been Kate -- and saw one juvie on top of 130.  Daytime is not usually all that active...  They love the dawn and dusk periods the most.  But our main objective was to wander all the nearby streets and alleys, making sure there were no fledglings come to roost on a too low building, on a sidewalk.  And were happy to find none!!  Our main concern is that this is a business section of the city, and being the Canada Day long weekend, people were off work for the day, as well as for Saturday and Sunday, the streets fairly deserted...  So we were content to see nothing untoward!  We may head down later this afternoon, into the evening, watch for this family to whom we have become so attached!  And hope we only see them gracing the sky with their amazing flying skills!!

July 07, 2011 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre
Linda Woods Reports:

A spot check on the Sheraton trio late this afternoon. I arrived to see one adult and one juvenile. The juvenile was on the cooling tower of 120 Adelaide, while the adult moved from 130 Adelaide over to the north east corner of the Hilton. Not sure which juvenile was on the cooling tower. I stayed for about an hour and the juvenile was still in the direct area of the cooling tower. No others were in my view at this time.

A camera check this morning found one on the nest ledge.

I was down in the area of the Sheraton Hotel today, around 1:30pm, and stood around looking for peregrines, at this point, any peregrines!!  I'd been down that way several times last week and didn't see any of them.  Today, I did see one adult, I think, sitting on the north side of the Sheraton's roof, while I was walking across City Hall's plaza.  And on the other side, I saw another peregrine on the corner of the roof of 130 Adelaide, but couldn't tell if it was a juvie or an adult...  I didn't have my good binoculars with me -- I was too hot to carry them...  So was only using a small, light pair I have, which aren't much good...  And then I saw another pair soaring way up high, straight overhead.  They were way too high for me to identify, but they sure were magnificent!!  As it was above 90F and very humid today, I was actually surprised that I saw any action at all.  So counted myself really lucky to be graced with such a display!  I will be down about the same time tomorrow, by chance.  If it is a bit cooler, I'll carry my better binoculars and hopefully I'll have something more specific to report!

I went down to Rhea Mae & Tiago's neighbourhood again today to have lunch with Zoe, a fellow fledge watcher and now a new friend.  We were in the little courtyard across the street, below the Sheraton Hotel, a good place for watching for peregrines, but I/we saw zip!  I guess it was way too hot and humid for the RM/T family and they were all hiding in the shade...hopefully closer to the lake, where it is always cooler!

After Zoe returned to work, I walked over to 18 King Street East, another downtown Toronto peregrine site to the east.  It's not very far and I walked through that small but wonderful Cloud Gardens on my way.  It was so cool in there under the abundant trees, with the luscious foliage.

 [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cloud_Gardens (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cloud_Gardens) ]

I stayed for a while, before I trundled on.  At King E. I saw one beautifully white breasted adult on the south end of the nest site ledge and one juvie, a little smaller and tawny in colour, at the opposite end.  Both very still, in the shade, trying to keep cool, I presume.  While wandering around, looking for the other juvie and adult, I heard a demanding kakking, but couldn't locate the source, with the moderately tall buildings around...  Bet someone wanted some food!  But, although I couldn't see the peregrine responsible, it was great to hear!!

I think this was asked but I'm asking again. What is the distance from Sheraton and King St? I can't believe 2 nests that close and no one enters each others air space? Look at B and U, 5 miles apart!!

The two peregrine home base sites are 5 long city blocks apart, the King Street East site being east and a bit south of the Sheraton one.  The Scotia Bank Tower seems to be the central boundary marker.  King E. peregrines stay east and south/north of it, the Sheraton ones west and south/north.  Apparently, this boundary is well established and obviously makes sense to them.  These instincts seem to be strongly passed on.  But also, remember that Windwhistler successfully sired and tended to both sites as the sole male, for years!  The boundaries obviously meant something different to him alone!  Nature is, as far as I'm concerned, truly amazing!!

He made his way back on his own! Good to see him, he is a small little male and is still as cute as ever.  Did not see the third, probably Sunshine, who I assume is off on her own until dinner.

NY. And I have to keep track of all them here.  We are pretty sure our Jersey City male from 2009 is the male at a new site not far from JC. He was with a first year female this spring.  The site is off limits to everyone and very safe.  We have our fingers crossed that it is Bro.

I have to pick and choose where to go watch.

!!! Empty nest syndrome for many!!
July 15, 2011 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre
CPF Postmaster Reports:
July 15th - 2011

Despite the fact that the ‘kids” are no longer utilizing the nest ledge much these days, the resident adults are still calling it home. If you can catch the camera and the nest ledge just at the right time , you will see one or both of the adults still on the nest ledge throughout the day and night. You just may even be able to catch the juveniles on the nest ledge via the camera. They are foxy and quick,, but still checking the nest ledge for food that mom and dad have left behind!

The fledglings are all over the place these days with many new reports of peregrines on their ledges, outside of their windows, but it’s difficult to get band numbers as they are moving around so much, and as two people have alrady told us - “by the time we realized what we were seeing, frozen in amazement, run for the camera phone and return, they had gone to another window ledge,, Damn” !!!!

One lady writes, “I’ve got to stop spending so much working, and more time watching”!! Oops, don’t tell by boss I said that!!!

Another fellow writes,, “Work is really making my peregrine watching difficult”! Can you get them to come back to the nest ledge so I can watch them on my computer when I’m working! I really miss watching the youngsters!! My days have become very boring again!

July 18, 2011 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre
Mark Nash Reports:
Sunday July 17th - 2011

A quickly update. We received news that little Kate from the downtown Sheraton hotel nest site has once again been rescued (or should I say simply picked up) at street level, this time from a downtown park bench by Toronto animal services.

While the initial reports would indicate that she does not seem to be injured at all, this is quite odd,, (and the second time that she has simply come to the ground and been able to be retrieved without a scuffle).

Kate is far too complacent about the situation, and further examination is necessary!
She has been taken to the Toronto Wildlife Centre for further evaluation and we will report on her status as soon as she is further examined more carefully.

Stay tuned…….

July 21, 2011 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre
Linda Woods Reports:

A surprise this morning to see a juvenile on the nest ledge this morning. It’s Sunshine, the juvenile!

 We already have too much sunshine today with the record breaking heat and humidity. Today Toronto reach 38 degrees C.  by 2p.m. and the day is not over, with the humidity it felt more like 49 degrees C.  We have not had any rain for almost 23 days, so there are no puddles for the peregrines to stomp around in for cooling.

 Sunshine  remained on the nest ledge hunkered in the far corner in the shade. I hope there was a breeze up there. She was still there well into the afternoon.

!!! Some sad news about Kate just in this morning!
July 25, 2011 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre
CPF Postmaster Reports:

Monday July 25th - 2011 - 11AM

We have only just received some bad news from Toronto Wildlife this morning regarding little Kate from the Toronto Sheraton nest site. In a telephone call this received this morning, we are told that Kate passed away early Saturday morning in her sleep.

While the results of the blood work that was done for blood parasites came back negative and the serious of chest x-rays didn’t show any real clear evidence of Aspergillosis,, Aspergillosis is highly suspect given her condition. She was very much underweight and simply had no energy or fire as we say. The young birds are especially vulnerable as they have yet to develop strong immune systems to fight off all of the usual nasty ailments they are exposed to while they are still growing and developing.

To explain Aspergillus in short:
Aspergillosis is a respiratory disease of birds caused by the fungus Aspergillus, which is found almost everywhere in the environment.
A. fumigatus is the most common species of the fungus to cause disease, although A. flavus, A. niger, and others can also cause problems. Aspergillus grows readily in warm and moist environments. The microscopic spores of the fungus become airborne, poor ventilation, poor sanitation, dusty conditions, and close confinement increase the chance the spores will be inhaled.

Usually, the fungus does not cause disease, however, if a bird does not have a healthy immune system, it can cause illness. Predisposing factors include other illnesses, stress, poor nutrition, poor husbandry or unsanitary conditions, another injury to the respiratory system (e.g.; airborne pollutants).

The combination of the number of spores in the environment and the presence of predisposing factors determine which birds are most at risk of disease.

Aspergillus is everywhere; it grows on everywhere, including on living tissue. Every speck of dust and dirt has spores of at least one species of Aspergillus. A bird does not usually succumb to the disease when it has a strong immune system. Over time it has built up antibodies strong enough to wage a proper war against the spores. But, a weakened immune system or ingestion of a huge amount of spores is what causes this disease. Every animal with lungs breathes in thousands of Aspergillus spores every day.

The spores cannot grow in the lungs of a healthy body, but a diseased lung can easily become a host. Aspergillosis can consume a bird with a weakened immune system. Poor nutrition, another illness, anxiety, loneliness, old age, unsanitary conditions or disturbed soil can also bring on this illness. A constant and gradual exposure can create a chronic (long term) infection and the causes are all too commonly found in places you would never expect.

Given the hot dry conditions we’re been having, this is an ideal environment for the airborne spores to spread around in the dry air.

We are truly saddened to receive this news this morning, and it’s very nice to see that little Cinnamon (another one of the Toronto Sheraton juveniles that we believed might not have made it given his small size and underdevelopment) that he is going strong today!!

This is very very sad. Poor Kate, I'm so sorry RM and Tiago. They do have 2 healthy ones out there, little Cinnimini and Sunshine.

Oh our precious little girl, I am so sorry we lost you . Fly free with your brother and all the other little ones named, known and loved as well as those we don't know but who are loved nontheless.  May you have little ones to play talon tag with and know that you will always be remembered and  loved.

As Carly said, at least Kate didn't die alone.  I'm glad for that.  I think this little gal was just not healthy and perhaps this was why she just took so long to fly to begin with.   :crying: :crying:

Poor, poor   Kate.  And little William, who went before her.  I hope this does not portend  anything for the royals in the UK.

 I do  mourn the passing of Kate -- of whom I had a bad feeling after her last "to ground" the other day. So sad.   Fly free, little Kate. 

I am sad tonight.

Tracy Simpson Reports:

We just received word from a friend of Big Frank’s that a juvenile peregrine with the band number 24 X and green tape was seen at Bluffer’s Park this past week feasting on a juvenile gull.  After some investigation, Frank and I identified the bird as Sunshine who was hatched at the Toronto Downtown Sheraton Hotel this past spring.  We will be making contact with the photographer to see if we can post the pictures taken on our website so please check back!!  Good going Sunshine!!

!!! Sunshine photographed at Bluffer park with a kill!
August 01, 2011 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre
CPF Postmaster Reports:

Peregrine falcon with kill I had a good hour at Bluffer’s Park.

No green heron, but I saw two raptors with their kills. Going through my pics, I realized that the first was e a peregrine falcon (band 24 over x on its band). Think its eating a gull.
I put my camera down for a second and it flew away into the bluffs to eat its brunch.

The falcon took off in a north west direction towards the trees on the top of the bluffs. when I was walking back to the parking lot (3 minutes later) I saw what I thought was ANOTHER raptor fly by with lunch in its claws. I snuck around it (avoiding eye contact) and took pictures from a distance. I think it’s the same bird (its right talon band is black and says “24″ but I cannot read the letter, and it has a green band on its left talon) but I’m not sure if lunch was the same.

I watched for 10 minutes as it started to pluck the feathers. the plucking makes me think that it was another bird, but I’m not sure a) if it would drop off lunch for another falcon, b) if it had time to catch another gull in 3 minutes.

Out of all the babies this year, Mark Nash's Fav is Cinnamon. I picked Harlequin. Cinni was like the Juvie that almost couldn't but made a great "turn-a-round".


Title: Re: Rhea Mae and Tiago's Webcam - Toronto - Canadian Peregrine Foundation
Post by: Donna on 06-Aug-11, 02:20:22 pm
I wrote to Mark to ask about Cinnamon , here's the reply I got:

No recent news on Cinnamon at this point – (since last week when we saw both of them on the nest ledge).

We are although getting lots of peregrine sightings from the Toronto downtown core, but sadly, no one has given us any band numbers or tape colours as yet.

If he hangs close to “big sister Sunshine”,, he will do well, as she is what was photographed earlier in the week out in Scarborough making short work of a Gull!!

Both parents are still very much around – (being seen daily around the Sheraton hotel), so we know that Cinnamon still has plenty of support from mom and dad if he needs it,, (or should I say, screams loud and long enough for it). 


Hopefully, someone will spot Cinni and get his band numbers!!

I've noticed at our site that during the annual molt which is going on right now - Angel is pretty much velcroed to the nest box and ledge.  Molting tends to make them sedentary and they seem to spend alot of time by nest box when the primaries are coming in.

I don't know why, but I love to watch them preen  :-*

 

Me too!  :yes:

I do too.  I like to watch my own bird preen. I think it's their un-guarded moment, when they can just enjoy being "themselves"  and not "on guard"  or "looking for food".  They're just enjoying being a bird!

That's what I was thinking too.  Usually you can see some of the red on Rhea Mae's band even if you can't read it.

Thank you, Annette and Dumpsterkitty! I think you're right - this must be Tiago. This peregrine didn't look like Rhea Mae to me, but didn't look quite like Tiago either, and I can usually see both bands.

!!! Back on the nest ledge - holding the fort so to speak!
December 14, 2011 - Toronto - Sheraton Centre
CPF Postmaster Reports:

A huge thank you to Jesse for the recent update and photos of activity down at the Toronto Sheraton nest site where our resident peregrines were back on the nest ledge December 14th holding the fort as they say. Our southern Ontario peregrines must be enjoying all of the mild weather we’ve been having,, AND no snow to shovel!!!

None of the adults in southern Ontario migrate. Quest has been bopping around doing visits to the near east of where she nests but returns home weekly several times.
In cities there is no reason to migrate.They can all find shelter and pigeons are abundant!! This is a good thing really because it removes all the hazzards of migration and helps the Peregrines live longer lives.

For whatever reason, our current male Archer and his grandpa Kaver both migrated during the winter.  Our females stick close to home.  So interesting to watch their behavior.

I've often wondered that myself Paul. We too have an abundance of pigeons and they certainly have shelter in any one of a million places downtown. Maybe the answer has to do with the lake somehow.  ;D

I suspect hassles at the border are the culprit.  :police:
Seriously its a good question and merits some investigation. Its not unique to the Toronto area,as seen by attending birds in Windsor and down at Lake Erie at Nanticoke. I believe there are Peregrines being spotted in London too. Alot of these birds are American as well so its not like a "Canadian population" just decided not to leave. We need a grant to study it  :2thumbsup:

That's the source of the northerly winds that blow across the Great Lakes producing lake effect snow.
