BM/18 and BM/17 spent yesterday together on the roof, still very happy to have been reunited.

There is an update on BM/17:

Raptor Trust is treating her for a beak injury that we hope is minor. She will probably remain there until sometime next week.

I hope she will be okay. Beak injuries can take a long time to heal.

Princess had a beak injury - got it a few years ago - never healed and never slowed her down :)

BM/17 has been returned to the nest, and has been reunited with her sister, BM/18. They were both so excited and very happy to see each other again.

BM/18 fledged yesterday, and her first flight was a good one.  She flew well again this morning, and returned to the roof parapet.

BM/17 is about to be returned to the roof:

Hey all, Kathy will be placing BM/17 back on the roof in the next half hour. We'll be watching to see how 18 reacts. So far she has been flying well but still remaining on the rooftop ledge/parapets. 17 has been in a flight cage and can fly, so Kathy will try to wet her down so that she cannot fly right off the bat.

Good news: according to the site, BM/13 has no major injuries.

This is the area where the chicks usually spend time running, jumping, wing flapping and making short flights before they actually fledge.

The cams are back up. A view of the roof, with no one in view at the moment.

The cams were down all day yesterday, and are still down. BM/18 spent the day in and out of  the nest box. This morning she has made it up to the parapet.

BM/17 will be returned to the nest on Tuesday. No update yet on the condition of BM/13.

New update from NJPefa an hour ago:

BM/13, the falcon missing between Sunday and Friday afternoon, is being evaluated at The Raptor Trust. We know she was being fed by her parents because she's not thin. She'll be x-rayed on Monday to see if there are any injuries.

I am glad she was taken to the Raptor Trust, where her sister is also being cared for. Perhaps at some point they will be able to see or hear each other.

Meantime, BM/18 spent the night just to the right of the nest box, on the ledge. In the morning she went back into the nest. Came out onto the roof for a little while and is currently back in the nest.

Breaking news!

BM/13 has been found alive!

YouTube chat says BM13 has been found within the last hour and is now in a box apparently crashed into a building and is hurt, awaiting for NJ wildlife to attend.

And from Bonnie Coe:

BM/13 story is totally amazing. Best guess is that she WAS somewhere relatively safe and the adults were feeding her all week. She may have fledged today or recently and crashed into the building. She was FOUR BLOCKS from the scrape. I never even thought to go that far and look for her in that direction!! INCREDIBLE!!

This is wonderful news! I am so happy that she has been found, and hope that her injuries are not serious. Many, many thanks to everyone who has continued to search for her.

For those who are sure that BM/13 hasn't survived, Hurricane fledged from the nestbox at the Radisson in a flurry and we didn't see her again until she popped up as the resident female in Brandon. So long as the parents can find her, they will provide food and some chicks never work their way back to the nestbox or nestsite even though they have siblings to hang out with. Hopefully in this case no news is good news.

I am not one of those. There is still hope of finding BM/13 alive. Tomorrow it will be a week since the incident. Many people have been, and are, searching for the little one. Photographers like Bonnie Coe have spent many, many hours searching in rain and fog, and reporting back.
