Sage, this is a bit off-thread but I looked at your blog and saw photos of Rochester where I grew up. What a surprise to see the Times Square Building (I think that's what it is called) with those very appropriate wings on top as home to falcons. It was, and maybe still is a landmark in Rochester, I was happy to see it, especially as a home for peregrines. It made me a bit homesick!

Now the Wings of Progress are the Wings of Peregrines! Woohoo!!!

"Equill and I walked right by this bird and it never moved!" True.... very true. She's telling no lies. The bird never moved even though we jumped around under it like wild women waving our arms and it just sat there.... motionless. Can you imagine. Sage> no babies??? Are they all grown up and big and stong like their parents? I miss the baby photos.

Finally, I got a video of a fight for the nest, between Yankee and the intruding tiercel, who may have been the male from last year, Smoky.
