Thank you for posting this.  When we lived in that area, we spent many a day at the Ornithology Lab and Sapsucker Woods, always leaving time to look at the wonderful paintings of Louis Agassiz Fuertes.  This had a good deal of detailed info that I didn't know before, so it was a true pleasure to read.

Dale, they are so beautiful! I had a wonderful time this morning going through your art. My favorites (hard to choose) were the owls in "other critters" and the birds by the water in your oils. Thank you so much for posting your website for us to enjoy.

What wonderful news!!! Thanks for letting us know that all is OK after the fiasco with the window washers. I sure hope they were heavily fined and then fired.

DRAMA!!  And so far, an unbelievable outcome.  All three fledglings are alive and in good health.  Two are back at 101 Hudson and the third will be going back very soon.

For the short version please go to:

The longer version with posts and lots of photos is at:

You can find YouTube videos of lots of the Tuesday action if you search for Jersey City Falcon.  Also, there is a wordpress blog at:

I was fortunate to be able to be a part of a rescue and return.  The third falcon, BM/13, has a minor injury, but had been fed during the five days she was missing.

                         good news

PPOs eggs failed again this year, but she and Poppa will have a chance to raise babies! A nearby rescue had 2 orphaned spotted eagle owl chicks that have now been fostered into PPOs nest! So far, so good!

Donna, nooooo I am devastated to hear this awful news. She was so involved with our falcons and I could never believe all the time she put in watching the cams and posting. Although we have never met in person, she always helped me post my holiday falcon cards. I am trying to work through her passing by thinking of her uniting with Ed and the falcons who did not make it, especially Kaver. Sincere wishes to her family.

Don't know if this will help, but the raptors in my yard (mostly red-tail hawks and kestrels) immediately pluck only the longest feathers from the prey and fly off with the rest of it.  Your pile looks like it was completely de-feathered right there where it was killed. If I had to guess, I'd suspect a 4-legged predator like a cat.
