I guess these two have fledged and this isn't official but these names had the most votes in a naming contest and the two males may be called "Lewis and Clark"  who were early explorers of the Louisiana Purchase.

Meriwether Lewis and William Clark 

It is official now, the names are Lewis and Clark.

These two are losing all their fluff and getting beautiful brown juvenile plumage, probably won't be long before they fledge.

From this afternoon, everyone looks relaxed now after the banding.  :)

Although it was nice to see the banding, it seems to me that they handled them way too much and then subjected them to that photo shoot.  I am sure the poor babies were just terrified.

...I feel like I need a Falcon Family Tree on the wall by my computer to keep track of who's who.
So do we all, I am sure, Jo. ;) LOL!

Great video and capture RCF - it's hard to imagine that "our" chicks will be that big soon.

Kinderchick - thanks for posting the blog entry. I don't think they posted the interview.
