Ohio / Cleveland - Terminal Tower - 2015 / Boomer & Newton

Well that sucks, they had already had a bad year ...

This from May of this year ...

It is with sadness that we acknowledge the loss of Newton and Boomer’s lone eyas of 2015. The specifics are still somewhat unclear, however as one can tell from the Falconcam, Newton and Boomer have ceased any parenting behavior, including incubation, at the nest site. At this point the 4 remaining eggs have long ceased to be viable.

May was not a good month this year at lots of nestsites in Canada and the US.

it is with heavy heart that I relay the news of Boomers passing. some of us watched Boomer from the egg stage . He had a special place for me and for many others. He was offspring of Scout and Orville.

From C&C's FB page:

Body of the Terminal Tower's Boomer Found: RIP to Boomer, a handsome, steady, and reliable mate and a part of the TT's magnificent peregrine legacy! As we all suspected when a new male appeared at the TT nest tray in place of Boomer this summer, Boomer met his demise. We can only speculate that he was likely killed in a territory battle, possibly having battled the current resident tiercel at the site, Stacker, who has paired with Newton since June. Laurie Graber from DOW informed us that Boomer's body was found on the Rockefeller Building, which is a few blocks to the northwest of the Terminal Tower. Boomer is deserving of a much more complete tribute, but for now we'll post this pic of Boomer when he was resting comfortably at the tray with one eye shut and one of his molted primaries propped up beside him...

It looks like two chicks hatched out of the four eggs at this site.  The first on April 21st and the second sometime before April 24th.
They are growing in leaps and bounds :D

2012 NESTING SEASON

4 eggs laid at this nestsite, with a successful hatch last week. However, some sad news about the 1st egg. :'(

Info from the website...

SW and Boomer welcomed their first chick of the 2012 season this morning, Thursday, April 19, 2012.

This joyous news is tempered with sadness however. The first egg to pip ran into difficulty hatching. Instead of scoring the inside of the blunt end of the eggshell, it excavated along the flank of the egg. All of its work could not force open a avenue for its escape and after struggling for two days, it has apparently died, stuck to the membrane within its shell.

It was banding day for the 3 chicks today. A report from the BCAW site:

Posted by bobbytimewarp who attended the banding,

"An event downtown caused DOW and others to run a bit late..
the wire to the drawbridge is no longer there, so they got the chicks out with it down..
actually, i thought SW was a bit more relaxed with the drawbridge down..
boomer brought food into the nest and SW was about to feed when they opened the windows.. they didn't want a feeding to occur..
bands are black over red..
2 females, 1 male..
76/D is female "Soarer"
75/D is female "Sabby"
32/B is the male "Spark"
females were named by Deb Mathies' kids and Mike and Christa's John named Spark..."

He doesn't have a chick pile to hold him down.
