Just for fun, here's my Fledge Watch Report from June 20, 2008, the day Diamante fledged.   happy

Carol P. - Diamante Has Fledged! - June 20, 2008 - 4-6:30 pm
Friday, June 20th, 2008

It was a very eventful 2 1/2 hours.  Lots and lots of flying by Mariah, Kaver and three young fledglings.  While Seneca still lingers in the nest box and Quest still runs around the playpen strengthening her wing muscles, Diamante gave flying a try.

All day, we wondered where Diamante was.  We could only count four eyases on the tower.  Did he fledge?  Was he hunkered down somewhere, snoozing?  I believe that he did fledge early that day, as reported by Dan S.  A very short flight out of the playpen and back on.

At 5:30 p.m., we finally saw all five eyases/fledglings!  Yes!  Seneca in the nest box, Quest in the playpen, Zephyr on the left side of the nest box perch, Susan B on the southwest corner of the 19th floor and (drumroll please!), Diamante was located on the southside 20th floor of the Kodak Tower.  I was so happy to see all five young Falcons.

During my Watch, Susan B finally made it out to the High Falls Stack.  Zephyr followed her and they remained there for quite awhile.

It was a gorgeous evening for once, and I was joined by many Watchers, too numerous to name (because I know I’ll forget someone!).  ;-)
Tomorrow should be an interesting day.  I’ll bet Quest is ready to be free of her playpen.  She’s ready to fledge and I’m sure Seneca won’t be far behind.

Diamante was a regular gymnast today preening himself, looking like a pretzel at times.  Gleig perched at the nextbox was very alert and watching us watching her.

Thank you for sharing, Sage.  This group of babies of 2008 are special to me, and I look forward to following more about Diamante and a new bunch of babies in 2013!

All is calm at Central Terminal, with Gleig on her nestbox perch and Diamante on lookout from above~




Diamante all fluffed up by the fierce and freezing winds tearing down the corridor

ps  Our familiar Pefamobile is history!  We're getting a new something or other...  Could be Sage-green!
