Aria was enjoying the sunshine on the ledge earlier in spite of the crazy wind.

Lucie paid a visit to the site yesterday and saw Aria eating a gull and then dive bombing the workers on the East Tower (nest ledge tower).  Here are some photos she took.

Great pics!  Hope the workers know not to swat at her, when she dives at them! When is work expected to be done?

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

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

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

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

Aria earlier today:

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

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

            lol  I’m glad they’re near completion on the building and that you’re able to keep an eye on them both!
