How awful for him. I wonder if the new male had any part in this. Every day, something else in the Falcon world. Need a Xanax!  Sad

I didn't even think that the new male...don't want to say it.  Poor Irving. 
It makes me go back to wondering what happened to our Mr. T who was Beauty's boy-toy through the winter  months. She WAS happy looking through that time, flying around and being free. 
It is tough, but so ware the peregrines.  We are just watching.

I thought it strange that the same day Archer showed up was the last sighting of Mr. T.  No battle that we know of-just quietly flew away?

Maybe T knew it was time to go.

Banding day here
May 29, 2011 - Port Colborne - ADM Mill
Doug Garbutt Reports:

After last weeks transfer of the young ones from the beam to the nest box, Anne Yagi, Mark Nash & Corrine were back to band the eyases. The small entourage were here at 10 am. Rolf Numsen promptly signed them in and equipped them with the necessary saftey ppe required. After a nice meet & greet with the plant manager Frank Jantz they made their way up to the 12th floor with all  gear in hand. It was 10:30 when they reached the top. We are lucky here to have a drop down door in front of the nest box. With a camera in the box & a monitor in our lunch room we were able to know when to drop the door without trapping an adult in the box or dropping it on a young one (via walkie talkie). After the door closed, Mom & Dad were a little upset to say the least. Corrine extracted the young from the box and with Anne’s expertise the young’s sex & age were determined. The 1st was a male weighing in at 556 gms. His band is 50/Y, we named him Max. The 2nd turned out to be a female weighing in at 838 gms. we named her Olivia. Anne & Corrine said both appear to be in good health. By 11:15 the birds were back in their box. Shortly after, Mom was back too. A big thanks to the MNR, CPF & ADM management for helping these rare birds have a chance at survival.

Ranger and Hunter still around
May 30, 2011 - Toronto - Mount Sinai Hospital
Linda Woods Reports:

 Ranger and Hunter are still in the area and keeping close. Ranger was seen on the east side of Princess Margaret Hospital, while Hunter was sitting on the “Intact” sign at University Ave.  They did  a fly around together and then returned to their roosting spots.  While I was in the area, they weren’t paying  much attention to one particular area, to indicate a re-clutch of eggs. Sad

It's sad they can't have a family but their devotion to each other is wonderful.

We Have Two Very Big Girls
May 31, 2011 - Burlington - Lift Bridge
Sue McCreadie Reports:
Today was banding day.  Anne Yagi, Biologist with the Ministry of Natural Resources performed the banding .  The statistics are as follows:

Lady Lamont - Weighing in at a whopping 1063 grams - Black band 41/X  and she will be wearing a red band on her right leg

Lady Nelson - A little smaller at 988 grams - Black band 42/X and she will be wearing a yellow band on her right leg

There were 2 unhatched eggs in the box, which were retrieved for testing.

Now the fun begins.  Given their size and estimated age of 26/27 days, the official Fledge Watch will begin in approximately 10 days (June 10th)

Photos will follow.

I thought you might know who he was.  Sad loss- hope his babies he left behind are doing OK.

CPF Postmaster Reports:

A great day indeed! With a huge thank you to the great folks at the Etobicoke general Hospital - William Osler hospital and the Ministry of Natural Resources, the banding went like clock work.
Three very healthy and fiesta hatchlings were banded to day in front of hospital staff.

With Hurricane (the resident adult male - produced at the Toronto Sheraton Hotel nest site in 2004 - banded Black 5 over Black x)), and his mate - (now finally identified by her Black M over Green 87 leg band,, as being named O’Conner, a 2007 Ohio produced peregrine) were both on hand to voice their opinion, the three young hatchlings were weighed in, sexed, banded, and named.

The first hatchling weighed in at 800 grams, (full crop) - sexed as a Female, at 23 days old, banded with a Black 26 over Black X and named Wind,, with Red Tape

The second hatchling weighed in at 625 grams, (full crop weight), - sexed as a Male, at 23 days old, banded with a Black 92 over Black Y at 23 days old, and named Storm,, with Yellow Tape

The third hatchling weighed in at 855 grams, - (full crop weight), - sexed as a Female, at 24 days old, banded with a Black 48 over a Black X, and named Rain, with White tape.

One un-hatched egg was recovered.

Three eyases were banded this afternoon at Etobicoke Sun Life - Jack and Angel's kids!  They all weighed 700 grams....so they had to measure feet and determined 2 were girls and 1 was male but because he was tougher to determine, he's wearing female bands..just in case.  They were named Skye, Hera and Jupiter. 

Small girls for Angel compared to past years but all looked and 'sounded' quite healthy  wub2

Congratulations! Does Jack have any eyases with the "other female"?
