Wow! A couple of days late to the party (that's what happens, when I'm not reading the posts regulary!), but this is such wonderful news as I'm "somewhat" attached to Seneca from 2008!

I've created a little collage showing pictures from Seneca at banding day 2008, finally (f)ledging and now as an adult in Cleveland. She really grew up and is now a beautiful falcon!

Cheers
Baerbel

Carol P - is my memory correct (it often isn't) that it was Seneca who sat on the pedestrian bridge, just outside the railings, watching the people go by only inches away? So you and I, wanting to show her that she should not trust people, ran towards her to scare her away - and people thought we were just awful!

I can't remember (my memory's fading too!).  So many of the young fledglings get a little too close to people and not all people should be trusted.   surprise

OMG!!!  I just saw the pictures of Seneca.  She is as dark as her dad and has her mama's fierce look.  Looks like she got the best of both Mariah and Kaver.

Actually, the episode on the bridge, where the juvie sat on the bridge, just behind the blue "fence" on either side of it, as everyone walked by, most of them not even noticing her, was probably longer ago than 2008, so I guess it may not have been her. I thought I had a photo of her looking between the blue bars, but I can't find it.

I’ve always said that a Peregrine Falcon is a gift that blossoms before our eyes. From the wet, pink almost featherless newly hatched chick to the white fluff of the eyas to the awkward pin-feather covered youngsters to the dark & milk chocolate brown patterns of the fledgling. At that point, you almost get a glimpse of what they will look like when they lose their juvenile feathers. But it is a true honor to see the young fledgling we watched grow before our eyes transformed into their adult plumage. Then do we see the parents we adored.   falcon2

Sharing one of the most exciting falcon watches some the local watchers experienced with Seneca on July 7, 2008...


M/K - Seneca's Super Sensational Stupendous Stoop!

I was out very early this morning with Dan S, Jeanne, and Larry O.
It was mostly quiet. There had been a few food drops by Kaver, who
was on fledge watch himself, while Mariah was elsewhere. While Kaver
was relaxing on his lazyboy, I mean his lilies at the top of the
Kodak Tower, Seneca decided to take a spin around the tower, in her
turbo-charged body. You would never guess that this young Peregrine
was the last to fledge.

We all stood up, tracking Seneca's (at the time we had no idea that
it was Seneca) flight with our binoculars. She was so graceful in
the early morning, very hazy, very warm morning air. Slowly
floating, flicking a wing here, adjusting a tail feather there,
watching the gorge below, seeing something.

Something caught her attention in the gorge below. We watched in
astonishment as she folded her wings against her body, tucked in her
talons, aimed herself downward, and SHE STOOPED!

For a moment, we all questioned ourselves. Was this a fledgling or
an adult? No way was a fledgling stooping like that. It had to be
Kaver coming off of the lilies and passing by his daughter. No way!

We watched in amazement as she stooped from the tower into the
gorge. None of us were able to see what she may have been after.
All I saw was a gull trying to get out of her way.

She pulled up and landed beneath the bridge. Larry, Jeanne, Dan and
I ran down to where we last saw her. We were able to get a very good
view of her and she abliged us by showing off her pretty silver
band. Yep, this stupendous stoop was done by young Seneca.

I have NEVER seen a fledgling/juvie, stoop like this before. It was
incredible!

Try to refresh it maybe?  Sometimes depending on speed of your connection, it doesn't load properly.  I get that sometimes too.
