The Rochester Falconcam team has been hard at work with our partners at the New York State Dept. of Environmental Conservation on plans for Banding Day.  Most of the i's have been dotted and the t's crossed, so we're ready to announce that we'll be banding Beauty and Archer's two eyases on Thursday, June...

Yikes!  That's next week!  They aren't old enough for banding yet!   Shocked

At least, being Thursday, I should be able to sneak a peek from work!

If my memory is right, Mariah got more aggressive every year than the year before.

That's my memory as well.  I recall one of the bird behavior experts on the board speculating that perhaps Mariah learned that her behavior had the desired effect, so it caused her to do even more of the same behavior the following year.  In other words, somebody took her babies, which she reacted to with aggressive behavior and warning cries.  The babies were returned, therefore, the aggression and warning must have intimated the evildoers.  So the next year...even more aggressive!

Oh yeah, that's why I'm going down to check it out. After all she took down our queen Mariah and we thought she was fierce. There may be some blood shed! devil gum

Mariah was at a disadvantage.  Probably gravid with eggs.  I know she was fierce.
