Falcon Cam Project CSU, Orange, New South Wales home of Diamond, Xavier and little one Izzi  Look who's home!

Cilla returned Izzi about a half hour ago!


How did I get back here?

Sure is nice to be home!


Hi Mom what's up?


Update via Cilla Kinross... thank you Cilla!!!
 
NEWS...Update 1239 h 24/11.  I collected izzi from carer (we met half way ish) and put him back in the box with some food.  Xavier has already seen him.  The box hatch is still ajar.  I've taped it up, so it shouldn't open further, but it to fix it now would have meant a lot of noise and disturbance.  Please remember this is a wild bird and he still has a lot of challenges ahead of him.  Peregrines do often land on the ground when they first fledge, but if he lands in a car park or the construction, I'll probably put him in a tree next time!

Update 2030 h 23/11/2020. Izzi has been flying well and straight in the aviary.  He has a bruise on his cere (from the window collision), and has had anti-inflammatory medicine.  There is no evidence of frounce (the name for trichomoniasis in raptors), but he has had antibiotics as a precaution and he has gained weight.  I will be collecting him from a town between here and Young tomorrow morning and hope to have him up the 120 steps plus ladder to his box by lunchtime.

Izzi's final (hopefully) and successful fledge! Bye Izzi! :-\ ;D


Below gif is Mum Diamond yesterday looking out for lil Izzi and has food waiting, then you can see last night she was keeping an eye out and then this afternoon still keeping the "Mum" eye out for the lil guy!  "Food untouched"... she is trying to see if he'll come back to the nest apparently.   ;)((Diamond))

NEWS...  Another milestone!  I saw Izzi right on top of the tower just now.  He's still there (I can see him from my office window).  Must be flying strongly to get right up there.

I can be wrong

Falcon Project CSU Orange New South Wales Australia home of Diamond & Xavier & little one Izzy.

Izzy is getting better at hunting!!!  Go Izzy!!!  Not sure if Izzy caught this or Dad Xavier gave it to him outside!! :)  At least it's not a beetle!  (Izzy's catch the other day was a beetle)  ;) Izzy is getting better at defeathering too!


Izzy's history
3 eggs laid end of August
2 chick perished trying to hatch
Izzy hatched October 2nd 2020

November 16th Izzy takes a tumble out of the box, is rescued & returned to box.
November 19th Izzy fledges unsuccessfully and hits a window in the college, he was rescued and taken to rehab for 4 days returned to the box November 23rd. 
November 29th Izzy Final fledge
Mom entices Izzy to come back to box with food and waits patiently. Izzy returns to box and is there everyday.

"After fledging, the Eyass continue to rely on their parents for another 4 ? 6 weeks for food and to master the flying and hunting skills they need in order to survive."

January 10th will be 6 weeks since Izzy's final fledge.

We'll see what happens... good job Izzy!!!

 8) NEW SEASON
August 19, 2021
  Diamond and Xavier

Di's egg is due next week, like clockwork, so I imagine she has evicted Izzi

August 18, 2021
Izzi
(2020 hatch brat) has not been in the box now for 12 days, but we think he is still around from calls.   Parental behaviour continues as normal, with up to three prey a day being delivered to Diamond and preparation of the scrape.  Eggs are expected soon (within a week or two).  Generally, Diamond starts to spend more and more time in the scrape and her backside looks large and fluffy.

Nesting season is quickly approaching in Orange! The average date for Diamond's first egg is August 27, with a historical window of August 20-31 for egg #1 via facebook

Diamond is doing good, looks like the first egg of the season is coming soon!  She is a little puffy and beautiful today...  it's 715am there now. Xavier just brought food and she is not interested... 💜
