M/K Fledge Watch - Wednesday - 7/25 (6-7 am)
- After the awesome watch we had last night, I decided to get downtown
early this morning. Well, you know what they say about the early
bird catching the worm, or in this case the early Watcher spots the
Peregrine. Dan S had arrived around 5:30 a.m. and he told me I just
missed seeing Sacajawea and another juvie leaving the gorge to head
Jeanne joined us and around 6:45 a.m., Dan spotted a Falcon flying
towards the Kodak Tower. As we watched, a 2nd and then a 3rd Falcon
followed, kakking loudly. The first Falcon was an adult being
followed by two very hungry juvies.
All three flew around the tower, two landed and one headed back to
the south. I'm fairly certain this was an adult, since a 3rd juvie
flew up to greet him/her. Not sure if it was M or K.
When I went into work at 7:00 a.m., the only Falcon I could see was
sitting out on the communication tower.
Let's hope that this is another wonderful day for watching.
Have a great day everyone.
p.s. There was still a pile of feathers out on the island below the
pedestrian bridge. I still have to wonder if one of our juvies
killed this gull.

communicaton tower, two kestrels on buildings towards the city, and
the falcon on HSBC that Barbara has repeatedly seen this morning.
There is another dead gull on the rocky beach on the island (west side
of the buuilding). Could our juvies be at it again? I wonder if Linn
will ground feed on this one too.
