Oh god Kitty ... the heck we went through with this band ID as I too said it was Erica.  DNR has her listed as D'arcy and I was told in no uncertain terms to call her D'arcy as that is what is on record with them.

All quiet the past two days, no sign of Aria at the site which is good, hopefully she is keeping safe somewhere.

Ok I"m home...so...there is a story.  I'll start at the beginning because it's complicated.   So yesterday Mathew, from Jacks home - the private condo's emailed me to say mom was in a fight and was on a lower balcony and they didn't know if she could fly.  This morning she flew and the other female was there and chased her out.  I did see photo's of Mom that he took and it was definitely her.  She was displaced and was trying to come home I guess.  They assumed it was Mom and Jack still there.  

I of course thought..hmm could the intruder be Aria since the site is so close to ours so off Lucie and I went.  Well turns out Mom was the intruder, Jack is not there anymore.  Aria is nesting with a male banded Black/Red with a purple USFW band - I have the numbers - just confirming with a US contact first before I post.  She has 3 eggs so far and she's incubating them so they are hers, she is fine and looks fantastic.  I knew it was her soon as I looked through the bins and saw her chest and head...even before Lucie got the bands.  So Aria has now taken over her grandfather's nest site.

Apparently she was talon locked with Mom yesterday and got on top of her and pinned her down and just pecked away at her.  Mom is fine, I saw photos he took last night of her but she was obviously exhausted.  We don't know her age but she'd be 16 or 17 years of age.

Contrary to the past - people there were fantastic with us.  We had one couple invite us into their apartment and on to their balcony right across the nest so Lucie could take photos. Another gave us their number and said we could call and they'd let us in.  Mathew took us up to take photos as well and we met more people.  So that was a nice surprise.  Lucie just dropped me off - she got lots of photos she will post as soon as she's sorted them.

I guess it being the weekend I won't find out about the bands definitively but maybe someone here can help as well.  His band number is in the database however it doesn't specify if the USFW is purple or not?  I guess they don't as I just checked O'Connor's bands and they don't specify it either.  I just didn't want to say 'oh yeah it's this guy and then it turns out there's a twist and he's not' - it happened once before years ago so I won't say for sure it is.

He is banded Black over Red - 13/N.  The database says those bands belong to a male that was born in 2013 in Gary, Indiana at the US Steel 'old coke plant'.  I did send a pm to a contact in Indiana so we'll see what she comes back with.  There is no name listed for him in the database.  So he'd be 6 years old which is interesting - only because I expect them to be younger but there it is. 

He's a handsome lad I'll say that and a good provider from what we saw.  He brought Aria a 'banded pigeon -oops' and she went to town on it.

The mid-west USFWS bands are purple...and that database is for the mid-west only. (Wish we had an east coast one too). East coast USFWS is silver. If they have a resident bird with a silver band they will note it in there somewhere.

Thanks Kitty. We don't use purple up here so it's always confusing to me.

I just got a pm back from my contact in Indy and she will check her records and if she doesn't have him then she said her colleague would as he does the bandings in Gary.  We don't often get birds from there up here so I just want to be sure but likely she thinks it is him Smiley

Just an FYI - I am keeping in touch with Mathew and bugging him weekly to ask how Aria and Indy are doing.  I've nicknamed him 'Indy' as he wasn't named Smiley

Mathew says all is well and quiet, incubation continues and he will let us know when/if a hatch occurs.
