Lisa, thanks for the pics! I missed the juvie falcon on the rewind this morning.  Here are some pics of the eagles finding a duck carcass in the tall grass and losing it amid gentle stealing. No one is really hungry yet with so much prey available.  Rewind to about 8:00 AM to watch the long activity.

For those who also watch Decorah, T40 has posted a wonderful video about N1 and the first transmittered eaglet, D1.  Great views of the hatchery from the N1 location.

STL - Just watched the video from T40, and thanks for the pics of the eagles finding the duck carcass in the grass.  I missed seeing that!

Lisa, reviewing your pics from this weekend, I see that the juvenile peregrine is banded!  Can you zoom your photo to see if it might be Chance from the GSB nest?

STL, I have tried to zoom in on both pics that I took.  The cam was not all that clear to see the numbers, but I can tell you that a silver band was on the right leg, and a black one was the top color on the left leg.

Lisa, the band colors of the juvie peregrine you photo-ed are the same as on Chance, as it appears in a couple pics that I took in July.  The band numbers are posted with important dates on the GSB page.  Maybe Ginger or someone else with Explore's site will know.

STL, how cool is that!  I wonder if that was Chance?!?

It was windy, and also far away, so the cam ops couldn't get a clear pic.  But, I do appreciate them spotting the falcon on the Flyway!   :)

Good sized flock of American Wigeon feeding this morning. Also called Baldpate for the whiteish stripe on the crown of the males.  Cool duck.
