Title: 2013 Wilmington, Delaware Falcons
Post by: AlisonL on 18-Apr-13, 05:13:30 pm
Red Girl and CJ are the resident pair at this nest. Red Girl was born at the Harrisburg nest in 2008, and CJ hatched at the Wilmington nest in 2006.

There are three beautiful little chicks, who hatched two days ago. There are still two unhatched eggs.

A fourth chick hatched this morning.

Apparently this little one was not being fed, and has been removed from the nest to be cared for. He/she will be returned to the nest at a later date.

Can't post today's pics of the chicks - Photobucket is down right now.

Wilmington Falcons
I received some sad news about "White" from Craig Koppie today...

"Sorry to have to report that one of the 2013 Wilmington juveniles was found dead on September 4, 2013 in Pennsylvania. He was recovered at the Lehigh Valley International Airport near Allentown apparently struck by an aircraft, possibly around 8 a.m. A straight line distance between Wilmington and the airport is 65.71 miles. I am sure he traveled many more miles since leaving Wilmington to this final destination point."   :(
