Anybody know if more than one eyass has been located since they all left the nest box?

I don't know STL.  The cam ops seem to have stopped searching for them and I have seen Zooey or Newman at the nest box.  All we can do is think positive thoughts.  Wouldn't it be wonderful if one or more of the eyass flew back to the nest box or cliff ledge so the cam ops could see them.

Yes, Jaspurr, seeing the juveniles would be a blessing!  From notes that RRP has posted on the Home page, it's not unusual for the falcons to leave early, and also to survive.  So we'll just wait for news and pictures.   ;)

Its too early for them to fly up to clifftop.
Midweek next week we can look for them up there.
You will see all 3 again.

Thanks for the barge picture SHEP.  The last couple of mornings have been beautiful at GSB.

The camera operators are panning the area this morning. Some closeups of wildflowers, some closeup pics of adult peregrines, maybe Zooey from the rusty feather colors, puffing and panting from the heat and exertion of flying.  No juveniles in sight on the rewind, unless I missed them.

Oh, Shep, thanks for posting the pic showing the band ID !!  The details say she was hatched in 2019.
I just didn't stay with the rewind long enough.

Busy on the Mississippi at GSB.   ;D. Beautiful morning.  Good day to get some coffee and watch the river.

9:43 Got my coffee.   The barge in the lock is headed upstream and is just rounding the bend.  Will go back and watch it.  What I would give to transit the Mississippi and go into a lock.   ;D. The sound of the tug engine.  In my next life I want to be a tug boat Captain.
