6 am  August 7
I think thats Chance on top of the cam in the misty dawn.
Chancy girl is really exploring.  Once she took off, there was no stopping her!  She is such a BIG girl.

Shep, Definitely a bird on top of the camera just at color-cam this morning. Then closeup of one on the ledge, but I did not see a leg band. Stay with the rewind for one perching on a dead limb, and listen to the brief hailstorm!

Sure was a privilege to watch the peregrines raise a chick to fledging.  Thanks to the cam ops for their wonderful views.

Peregrine perched on a lower ledge, then on a dead branch at mid-day. Hoped it was Chance, but alas, no leg band.  Zooey perhaps?
Great closeup views of wildflowers, spider & web, sumac turning fall colors (no pics).

STL, not positive, but the first pic looks like Newman.

Pretty sure it was Newman
ring the bells that still can ring, forget your perfect offering.  There is a crack in everything-that's how the light gets in

Thanks for the probable ID, Izzy & Lisa. It's the same bird in my middle pic, so Newman. Very blue-looking feathers in that light.

Cam ops here find wonderful closeups of wildflowers, and today, some insects. Here is one Azure Bluet Dragonfly.

I am behind on posts & photos & gifs... I recorded the video and a few gifs of her that day... I am 99.99999% sure it was her  ;D ;D ;D  So happy to see her or her twin. :)

Great Spirit Bluffs Home of Newman, Zooey & little Chance.
Little one Chance "possibly" seen on Mississippi flyway cam... I believe in my heart it was her... this little one in the GIF has bracelets too!  I did record a video of it as well...  Great work by the cam ops!!! 



This was taken the same day Chance was spotted at Flyway, she had not been spotted for 2 days prior


Chance & Mom Zooey 49 days ago June 22nd


You've come a long way little girl!  I get a little sad when they leave, but happy at the same time.  So proud of all of our fledgings!💜
