Kudos to Mark, the OMNR, the OPG, the CPF, the NPCP, the Rock Climbers (RC?), and the RFW!  May we know the ID of the banded resident adult at Niagara Falls?

!!! Banding Success - Two healthy female hatchlings & the Resident adult identified via leg band!
July 08, 2011 - Niagara Falls
Mark Nash Reports:
A huge success today with two healthy hatchlings banded, a new nest tray installed with lots of nest substrate, hatchlings moved from the window ledge to the new nest (old nest cavity), and both parents attending the chicks!!

So, does anyone know-or know someone to ask-why the scrape was moved?  It was in a window so I suspect there was access into the "building", such as it is, or other hazard.  Just wondering...

!!! Update on Lady GaGa
July 10, 2011 - Windsor - Ambassador Bridge
Marion Nash Reports:

First reports of lady GaGa’s leg fracture repair were very good and we all felt quite hopeful that she would heal well and be able to return to her family quickly.

It was then just a matter of where she would be housed and cared for during her short recovery.

After discussing this with the Ministry it was decided to bring her to the CPF Raptor centre in Vaughan where she would receive round the clock care for the weekend until a final decision and direction from the OMNR could be made on Monday.

As always all raptors rescued and retrieved by CPF who have sustained injury are taken to the CPF’s Avian vet Dr Markus Luckwaldt at the Amhurst Veterinary Hospital who has extensive experience with raptors for further examinations.

Dennis and Gwen CPF’s chapter coordinators made the long drive up to meet us at Dr. Luckwaldt’s office in Scarborough where she could be further examined to make shure there are no other unseen/unknown illness or injury we would need to be aware off while in our care and to make a post operative examination of her leg.

The doctor decided to take full ex-rays of her wings to make sure there were no other breaks or small fractures there that could not be seen, then examine the rest of the body and if clear of any other injuries proceed with a prescription of broad spectrum antibiotic for further treatment during her healing period.

The leg post operative ex-ray was very good well done for sure it showed the pins that were placed in the fracture of the Tibia Tarces just below the knee. Unfortunately the wing ex-rays gave us some truly bad news . Lady GaGa had 3 other bad fractures on both wings called trypod fractures one in the right coracoid this bone was also dislocated the other fracture was in the clavical on the left wing the prognoses for repair was not good.

Sadly it was deemed that the surgery required could never repair the damage well enough for survival in the wild and one of the fractures so bad as to actually be inoperable.

Her medical reports will be given to the Ministry on Monday where we will await their recommendation and final decision.

She is being well taken care of and is bandaged up to support her wings, she was tube fed since she can’t eat on her own, hydrated and given pain medications by Dr Luckwaldt. She is resting well in a cool quiet pen of her own at our centre under the watchful eye of our raptor centre manager Momma Tracy.

We want to thank both Dennis and Gwen the CPF’s Windsor chapter coordinators and the Falcon Watch Teem for the fast action and tremendous support given to Lady GaGa and her family. We would also like to thank Dr. H.J Sweetman of the Downtown Veterinarian Hospital who came to her aid so quickly. What a wonderful extended family the Windsor Peregrine’s have of which we are so proud to be a part of. You are all heros and we salute you for all you have done.

When I think back over the years on all that has been done I recall lessons of humanity and past battles that were won, but for this one family there is still more to do so onward into battle go the mighty few. Keep up the fight Windsor and Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!

Look for further updates.

"A huge thank you to the Rochester group - (now nick-named the RFW,, - (the Regional Falcon watchers) who travelled from Rochester New York to Niagara Falls, Buffalo New York to provide the valuable observations from the Niagara Falls New York side of the falls,,,, that were able to visually confirm that both parents were in attendance and were already involved in feeding the hatchlings in the new nest cavity."

Who are the Regional Falcon Watchers and where are they from?   confused  tease

I personally like Rochester Falcon Watchers, since that's where we're homebased.  We're just in travel mode, since we don't have any fledges to watch.  

Dana and I were planning on going to Buffalo early Saturday morning.  I received an email from Sage (in Buffalo) Friday evening about the nest location being changed after the two eyases were banded at Niagara Falls.  They were very worried that the adults were not attending to the young ones.  Dana and I decided to make that our first stop Saturday morning.

We arrived at Terrapin Point on Goat Island around 9 am.  This gave us a direct view across the Niagara River at the scrape.  Sage and Roger were already there and had seen an adult deliver food to the new location.  I set up my scope and almost immediately saw the female enter the new scrape and stand in front of the young with her wings, giving them shade.  It was really sunny and very warm.  Sage and Roger left and Dana and continued to watch for a couple hours.  In that time, we saw two feedings and a food transfer from the tiercel to the female.  Both adults flew back and forth, while the eyases either dozed or moved around like little white fuzzy godzillas!  They are at that very cute, ackward stage.  No pin feathers yet that we could see.  This will be a very late fledge.

All was well and I contacted Mark Nash by text to let him know.

!!! A hard story to tell
July 11, 2011 - Windsor - Ambassador Bridge
Marion Nash Reports:

This morning we contacted the OMNR office to discuss Lady Gaga and what was to be done now.

With heavy hearts we are sorry to say she was humanely euthanised today at the vet clinic. I was with her until she Peacefully went to sleep for good.

I know in my heart it was the right desision and this poor little girl is now at peace.

If you see any of our Fledge Watch Team as you drive by honk your horn or give a wave to these folks who are out there looking after your Peregrine family I know they would appreciate it very much.

I'm also glad that she was surrounded by caring people at the end.  A very tough decision but definitely the right one.  Fly free, Lady Gaga.  Cry
