Per RRP today!!!
Look who's back at Great Spirit Bluff! While we were watching DNF lay her first egg, Newman was reclaiming his territory. Our camera operators let us know that he's already attracted a female falcon: not surprising given that he's one of the most eligible falcon bachelors around!  Great picture of him with the video!

Watch and listen here:

53 W, Lisa, sounds familiar.  She was there last year, I forget exactly when, but Forum Archive will have the pics.

 For what it's worth this is the earliest mention of Lisa that I found for last year.

Me, neither, Phyll, but she was definitely on the large feeding ledge for a while about 8:00 this morning.  There's a place to look up banding numbers and I will check that right now.  . . .  And I got no results, probably my inexperience with the banding lookup.  The link is on the Explore! tab from RRP.   Someone else will know, I'm sure.

So Lisa, 53W, came onto the scene after fledging last summer.  Good to see her back this year.
