Great Spirit Bluffs Falcon cam home of Newman, Zooey & Chance.In this 14 second gif you can see Dad Newman close by on the cliff above her & then you can see a close up of our little Princess Chance looking hungry... Mom Zooey tried to lure her to the nest box earlier with food. The nest box is below where Chance is sitting on the cliff.  Proud of you little one!

Lori, Love your gifs! And the blue hue on Chance's beak and wings. Matches her leg band.  Ha.
Thanks also for posting the longer video. Good to watch them flying and calling.

Thanks Lori.

Raleigh I wondered too if that was Chance.  Just my opinion, but it seemed so white between the head and wings??  To find Chance or any of them amazes me sometimes.

Chance in the box
July 20, 2021
Chance only fledged yesterday, but by the end of the day she was on top of the cliff - above the nestbox.  They I woke to see her inside the box again!  She had her choice of anywhere to sleep - and I am SURPRISED she chose inside the box!

5:18 am 20 Jul,  Chance was sitting on top of the box.  Zooey brought a bird for breakfast and coaxed her into the box.  Didn't take too much coaxing.  lol  Happy to hear that Chance still has her voice.

Wasn't certain if my last post was Chance or not. Pretty sure on this one. ;)

Beautiful paddleboat pic!

Pics of Chance this morning. She's beautiful, too.
On the live view at 10:15AM, there's a parent perched on a dead tree, so perhaps food soon.

Chance Point
July 21, 2021
2.30 am  Chance on roof - standing
She spent the night at home - up on roof
She knows she now belongs to the Great Out There
This box is no longer her home

She's doing great - flying all over - anywhere she pleases
So far I havent seen her on Rock Ledge Diner (below nestbox)
Up top of bluff at Chance Point she can watch riverboat traffic

Mississippi river barge July 20 - found kbr pic on Explore
Took Chance pics off Explore
