Wow that's a big chick!  That's probably dad in there, so it looks even bigger.  ;)

0532 -- Look at the feathers starting and the TAIL!


OK this was a first for me.  I've seen eagles bring in fish that are flapping, but first I've seen a peregrine bring in a bird to eat with the wings flapping like crazy.  He had to stand on the wing after he put it down to rip into it.  :(

Banding day was June 1st.  One boy and one girl.
It's a 100 foot climb to the catwalk.


Once up there they put plastic snow fence on the front of the box so no one can go out the front and get the chicks through a small door...


Brother left, sister right.  You can see the snow fence.

ROOF
June 18
I checked in and saw one
Then the smaller one landed - came down from above
Where'd he gone?  Roof?
Scrolled back - yep - to the roof!  Love DVR

Here is his takeoff - he was up in a flash
Confident lil guy
