Banding day today, and this was my first-ever time being there in person.  With a male and female this season, Kinney's total number of chicks produced is now 61 which I have heard is a record in the midwest.

. . .   Wow!!  These two have been nesting here since 2002 and are still having chicks!   8)   
That's right, RCF.  And for the 6 yrs prior to that Kinney paired with Scout in downtown Indy and produced many chicks.  He will be 19 yrs old next month and according to the Midwest Peregrine Society, he holds the Midwestern record for most prolific male!   ;D  KathyQ is 14 yrs old.

First feeding about 1 hour after 2nd chick hatched last night.

 
First chick gets a few bites ...                                          Then second chick, still pink and wet, reaches up for a bite

Those thumbnail captures at the Indy nest are great, Susan. I especially love the 2nd one! 8) BTW, a little bit late, but welcome to the Forum! :D
