Very good news that one of the little ones has been located by the cam ops, and the parents!  Newman and Zooey are on the job, so I am thinking positive thoughts about survival for all.

Some tell RRP to remove the nestbox.  NOOOOO!
Between 2005 and 2012 RRP banded 25 falcons


NOPE. Dont remove the box!
I dont think a single falcon chick has been lost due to early fludge.
The young have enuf wing power to safely land -
and enuf lung power to let parents know where they are! :egg11:

I personally enjoy the view of the river and locks and barges.
Minnesota is where I grew up.

Zooey and Newman are keeping vigil.  I can hear an eyass .  Zooey has not moved from the dead tree.  Newman  is flying.

Music to my ears.

Eyass very vocal.  Like looking for a needle in a haystack for the cam ops.  That dead tree marks the spot. 

Thank you for the Mississippi shots.  No barges SHEP. >:(

Cam ops are great SHEP.  This is better for me because I don't have to remember to turn down the volume on my computer like last year with Chance.  ;D

EBURG, I had to look the Empire Builder up on Google.  I am glad you were talking about a train.  When I first read your post I was worried that you were talking about an airplane.   8)
