I can check on Bear and Roosevelt for the connection this evening, but Terminator is related through Zeus (from Brandon - and still there) then Phoebe (from the Radisson) then Maud (from Minneapolis) who was MF-1's chick.  Hurricane is through Trey (from the Radisson - and still there) then T-Rex (from the Radisson) then Maud (from Minneapolis) who was MF-1's.    I think that Madame who was Trey's mom (and Hurricane's grand mom) may also be related to MF-1, but will check that this evening as well ...

Thank you for the very interesting information, TPC!

All four peregrines - Bear, Roosevelt, Terminator and Hurricane - can also track their family trees back to the famous female (and very fertile), MF-1, who nested in Minneapolis from 1987 to 1994.

How are they related to MF-1? I know she was one of Bob Anderson's falcons, the mother of the legendary Mae, who nested at the King Plant from 1990 to 2004. Mae herself raised 37 babies.

Love the comment "I take it they are home schooled?"

Update from Grand Forks ...

The banding of peregrines went well today. There were three very lively chicks, approximately 20 days old. The boy was named "Smiley", after a recent suggestion from Ron Fischer. The two girls were named Alice and Ethyl. This is because there dad is named Roosevelt, and President Theodore Roosevelt had daughters with those names.
 
Roosevelt is a 2-year-old male from Fargo. Terminator is a 3 year-old female from Brandon, MB.
 
The tag numbers are: Smiley, W/63 on black over green; Ethyl is 15/K, black/red; and alice is 16/K, black/red.

Received this note from Wick in Fargo today ....

"The Fargo babies are older than expected, but otherwise doing fine.  I went up on the roof today for a quick look, primarily so we could finalize the banding arrangements.  Three healthy chicks.  Based on development, they appear to be about three weeks old.

This means the banding will have to be moved up.  I need to confirm this with BOTW, but we are shooting for this Friday at 11:00 AM.  Confirmation will follow.  I may also have a photo to share before long."

I'll check with my contacts ... last I heard Terminator was hooked up with the brother of her mate from last year.  Last year was Bear, this year its Roosevelt.  There isn't a webcam on the nest, so they may have to wait to confirm eggs/nesting behaviour, etc.  Will post what I find out.
