Diamond is getting old, I suspect that could be why only one egg hatched last year and this year.  Just a guess.  I also suspect she has rheumatism / arthritis

Glad Yuri is doing well.

I wish the best for this family.  Grateful for Xavier to be bringing food for all 3 of them.  Diamond is on the mend and doing much better! ;) Take care Shep. :)

Thanks Lori, but this has gone on a couple years now.  Here is what catwoman on bcaw said.

Diamond is limping. A couple of people got pics of her foot earlier today. It might be bumble foot, which is an infection of the foot. Many birds can continue on without intervention but the infection does not resolve itself. There's definitely a mark (bruise?) and the underneath of the foot is swollen, like infection is present. Wonder if Cilla can capture her or some biologists?

Are you on Facebook. That is where I got the information.

Eggs are removed by Cilla
Nov 22, 2021

Yogi didnt come home overnight

notes by bev, bcaw
youngster had to be rescued from ground yesterday. some students found her and called Cilia. she put her in a gum tree by tower. adults were keeping an eye out I thought the winds may be too strong. She may need more help yet, as cila put her in tree but that would be low
talons crossed.

Photo of Yurraga in tree outside Nov 22
Yurruga fledged at 0604 h this morning.   He is fine.  He flew for a bit, then landed on the ground near the base of the water tower.  Some some staff found him, rang me.  I caught him, checked him over then placed him in a tree nearby (actually visible from ledge cam).   He was fine and hopefully will get the strength to fly more strongly over the next few days.

from catwoman, bcaw
Update on the unhatched eggs from Cilla in the box cam chat (Nov 23):
"I had a look at the eggs. One was clearly unfertilised. The other was, I think fertilised, but there was no chick inside. It exploded (big POP) all over me and it was just yellow liquid. No chick remains. I’ll do updates later. I’ll also try to get some confirmation from the museum where there are candling experts (I am not)."
    ---------------------

Thanks cat
2020 and 2021 only one chick
Diamond difficulty with her foot / leg
She is an older bird

I will be gobbling for 2 days.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

From FB Orange, Australia Peregrine Falcons
Holly Parsons · Nov 25
Update from Cilla Kinross in the box cam video description (Nov 25, approx. 16:00):

Yurruga was spotted today on a roof near the tower, looking a bit wet after a major downpour,
but clearly able to fly. He may return to visit the box when sufficiently competent in a week or two.
I'll be keeping an eye on things, but from a distance.
