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

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

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

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

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

I'm relieved for Aria and Lucky. I hope this youngster is going to be okay, and that he moves on.  Thanks for the report.

Yes and he looks fine.  I think the noise with all the screeching and yelling made it sound worse than it was.  I also don't do well with this stuff.lol..I get panicked, more because I"m helpless on the ground than anything else.  I don't drink...but I think I might need one now..lol

Hopefully the little guy is okay and safe somewhere now  happy

Watching and especially hearing a territorial battle is never easy. Once you hear that sound, you'll never forget it. Hopefully the young one has learned a valuable lesson and will move on.

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

Thanks for being there!
