The Falcons are Back to an All-night Schedule & Friday?s Intruder Has a Name!
Update for Saturday, March 9, 2024
At least Ares stayed up all night, perhaps trying to curry favor with his mate of 12 years after his short fling with a highly attractive intruder. All kidding aside, Ares brought prey to the nest box 3 times before 6:30 this morning. Ares provided several food gifts to Astrid, some which she took from him directly, others which she drew from his pantry ledges on the State Building. The falcons conducted two ledge displays at the box and they mated about ten times. They continue to guard the box almost constantly, which we believe is a reflection of the recent intruder pressure. Speaking of intruders, yesterday's banded adult female has been identified. Her name is ?Lilac? and she had been banded as a chick in the Rochester nest back in 2016. Her parents were Rochester?s ?Beauty? and ? Lilac is now 8 years old. Thank you to Carol and Dana from the Rochester Peregrine Falcon group for this great information. Also thank you to Pat Carey for sending us a couple of pictures of Lilac from 2016. We appreciate it.

Rochester Falcon Watcher Dana shared the pictures with our watcher group, including an enlargement of the intruding female's band. We all agreed, Black 86 over [...]
