2010 NESTING SEASON

At least one of the adults is still visiting the nest. I think this is the female, but can't be sure. Both birds are banded black/green, but are not identified.

At least one adult is still visiting the Sherco nest box, spending several hours there today:

I still wonder where 30/B is; I hope she is okay. Meantime the falcons here continue to visit the nest. I think this is the female.

It is a definite memory lane trip for me when these falcons, either together or individually come back to the nesting place and spend time. It is like going through memories that we have all experienced and want to savour. God bless them and hope they are back next year. Fly free! Of course, every falcon site gives me the same feeling. Especially my home town site of Winnipeg.

Definitely 2 sets of talons there.  My poor 30/B, I wonder where she is and I hope she is safe.  Maybe she's at another nest site but they got confused.

Thanks for the photos.  I wonder if she made a mistake, I'd sure love it to be our 30/B and if it isn't then wonder what happened to her and sure hope she is safe and alive somewhere  :(  

I hope so too, Carly.

At the nest today:

It was posted on the Elk River site that the female at Sherco is 30/B. This information was originally provided by Amy Ries, the webmaster at Raptor Resource, who is also very much involved in banding.  Her post:

Babies are:
    Female:   1687-30273   72/D   b/r   Sherfire
    Male:      0816-38655   D/90   b/g   Wander
    Male:      0816-38654   D/89   b/g   Breaker
Mom is 30/B


I hope the female at Sherco is 30/B. She is a most courageous falcon. The only thing is that I haven't seen a falcon with any missing talons when I have watched the Sherco nest this year, so I am somewhat puzzled. Both birds at the nest are banded; a couple of times I could almost read the bands.

Here are a couple of pics of the female. Unless there was a change at some stage, the falcon below is not 30/B:  ???

so many sites, you have to make choices on where to spend your valuable time ('specially if Da Man makes you WORK for a Living....  sheesh)

I admit it, I only regularly see Elk River and P&T.  all others I go to if someone says something nifty is happening right then.

so I REALLY appreciate those who spend tons of time giving all the updates and especially those folks who take the time to post photos.  THANK YOU!!!   ;D :-* ;D

So, I have to admit that I have been neglecting most of the Minnesota sites.  It was heartattack time here today for me.   One of the chicks ended up outside of the nestbox.  Fortunately there is a lower ledge before the outside bar, not just thin air,  and after many, many attempts, chick number 3 managed to get back into the box. Whew!

There are 3 chicks here now.  The box seems to be more sheltered from the winds and with the hot weather there today the chicks have been uncovered for long periods.  Last time I looked a parent was doing the wind tunnel, cool down thing.  :D
