Update from Duncan Mill. Today was a MARVELous day indeed! First thing in the morning, I found LOKI on the ground directly below the nest ledge. When I arrived 3 juvies were on the nest ledge, but thanks to Quest sitting on the ledge below and looking down, I was able to figure out where #4 was. Loki had a chance to rest all day and is being released on the roof tonight. Just before I was to leave around 6 pm, THOR decided to fledge and was found walking the ledge off the upper parking lot between #220 and #240. Great team effort rescue and he is also being released with his brother tonight.

Yesterday, a banding took place for the male juvie from Mount Sinai hospital. (named CHASE, X/05) And it took place in the office that looks onto the nest ledge! Thank you to the owner of the unit who let us use his office for banding ... what a bonus to see a different perspective of Quest's nest ledge too!! Cheers, Luci

Great story from FB!

An incredible story of 'brotherly love' from Duncan Mill that deserves to have its own post!   VELCRO continues to amaze us with his flying skills and now he has done something even more amazing!

THOR was back on the roof of the nest building after his second rescue last night and ready to start another day.  When he took flight this afternoon from the southwest corner of the roof, he headed into open space and we had no idea where he was going to land.  Suddenly, another falcon took off at jet speed after him and guided him back, but THOR, now heading towards #225, looked like he was going to hit the building.  Again, he was intercepted and guided back to the roof of the nest building where both falcons landed safely.  When we looked through our bins, we were flabbergasted! to find that it was not a parent but his brother VELCRO!!!! who came to his assistance.   I immediately took this photo (Velcro on the left).   An intervention like this is done by a parent, and none of the fledge watchers have witnessed another fledgling performing this action!!  Way to go VELCRO <3  Cheers, Lucie 🙂

So awesome! I saw Mariah do this with Isaura. This year we were pleasantly surprised when Mike dropped off food with Sundara. That was a first for me.  wub2

Loki banded X/85 earlier this year has been found injured yesterday in Hamilton and is currently in care.  

Hobbitstee Wildlife Refuge
50 mins ·

This gorgeous young Peregrine Falcon was picked up by City of Hamilton Animal Services yesterday from downtown #Hamilton.

This youngster broke his right wrist. He is scheduled for x-rays and we will be consulting with the expert surgeons to see if this fracture can be surgically repaired.

For those of you watching peregrine’s: the bird is banded and wears auxiliary band X85.
