The chicks were not surviving here and finally after two had passed the Raptor Resource Project ~ http://www.raptorresource.org/ ~ found the third chick had parasites.

The picture on the website where they say the bird is nesting in Feb at the Black Dog plant is apparently Miss Mary Ellen that showed up at Elk River. She got ousted by an older female on March 22/2013.

Mandy Rose and her mate have chicks; it's hard to tell whether there are three chicks or four.

This pic shows the male's black/green bands; Mandy Rose is on the perch.

Bonding at the nest this morning:

Some poor little bird became prey for the male to present to Mandy Rose:

Does the male at this site have a name or a band number we know of?  ???

He has a purple band on the right leg and a black/green band on the left, so he is a midwest bird, but he has not been identified. The resolution on this cam is too low to be able to enhance the pics enough to read the band (I have tried), and no-one at the plant seems to be in a position to atttempt to do so.

Spending more time at the nest box; it was good to see both falcons there today.

Alison, the shots of the well fed Mandy Rose are great to see.  I don't think I've realized that the adults get a full crop the way the chicks can.

Sometimes they have such a full crop they look as if they can hardly move. They also keep a cache of food for the times they are not successful hunting.

Mandy Rose has had another big meal this evening:

Mandy Rose (I believe) left the nest box just after eight this morning, and returned as usual to spend the night:
