Here are some pics of the parent who visited this afternoon. I think this might be Alley - just a guess, but the pics I posted previously of a parent seemed to show a bird with a whiter bib. As long as the parents are around, I think the juvies should be okay.

Has anybody heard anymore about this peregrine? Certainly hope that it has gotten some kind of help and is doing better.

I didn't see any of the falcons visiting the nest yesterday. I think this little guy may be okay, because we know the parents are still in the nest area, and he has the sense to be there too. I think they will feed him if he asks. I don't know if the cam plays any part in making him look so thin, but it's possible. Haven't seen any juvies today, but a parent was there for a while a little earlier. Will post the pics a little later.

He could have taken off on his own for awhile or he could be sick...hard to say but he doesn't look good.  Maybe that's why he came home now, hopefully if it's just a matter of hard luck, they might help him out if they see he's not doing well.   Could be he hate a bad pigeon too, I wish someone there was watching over them and could keep an eye out for him.  It's heartbreaking to look at him  :'( :'(

If he is having a hard time hunting, wouldn't the parent(s) come out and try to show him how? Or is it a health problem, cause this bird doesn't look healthly? On other sites have seen parents feeding their fledgings for a bit or once or twice after fledging, (probably feeding for a couple of months till they could hunt)don't understand why this one is so thin. Not a pretty sight.

That's not good, he looks like he's almost starving  :'( :'(  I wonder if he's having some challenges hunting.   :'(

I don't know - the other pics I have posted of juvies don't look like that. All the pics I saved of this little guy looked this way - he stayed for a little while. I do think this is one of the males, and I believe the other pics of juvies have been of the two females.

Is that the cam that is making him look so emancipated?  I hope so cause he looks way too thin for my liking.

Thanks, TPC!

Today's visitor is one of the juvies, who looks as if he(?) could use a good meal:

Looking at your photos of chicks on the box and the adult, I would guess (by size) its 19/K ... but that's a very big guess ...

Didn't see any juvies today, but one of the parents spent some time at the nest. I'm not sure if this is Alley or 19/K:

It's been a while since they fledged, but at least one juvie is still coming home:

Juvies are still visiting the nest box. Caught these a couple of days ago, but didn't have a chance to post.

First one juvie:





And then two:
