I'm sure that the same person who is responsible for my signature managed to find time for an avatar. Good thing - I don't have time!

Saw the mate today. He appears to be unbanded. If he has a band, I'll get it.

Absolutely!

Mine is a peregrine ledgling, which is what I call them before fledglings, and it was named Sage! Her mama Stella was just this morning discovered dead, 2 months dead, on the roof of the Buffalo Central Terminal. She was a wonderful Pefa mama. It is assumed she killed by the current pair who drove out Stash and Stella.

Thanks Jack! We get lucky sometimes. I feel small in her presence.

Too bad that there isn't enough food on a HOSP!!! I've been on the roof tops to see what they have been eating. Pigeon is high on the list. Cuckoo is the odd second favorite. At least European starling come in third. Belted kingfisher and ducks are not safe.

That is how I got so close. I volunteered to inspect the area where we suspect the scrape is. The building manager said no (AARRRGGGHHHH!!!). The plan is to wait and see if food is brought in. The young can and will be banded if this site produces young.

Yes, nest sites should be viewed from afar, with scope, binoc, cameras, and not disturbed. We are viewing the Niagara Gorge Peregrines, nesting on the Canadian side, from Terrapin Point on the American side.
If that building or a nearby building can offer a view, that would be great. For a couple years, when the Statler was in bankruptcy, so no cam, we went up to the 26th floor of a building on another block to watch from and record the nest activity for the DEC.
