Great interview on CBC early yesterday morning, TPC. :)

The 2 chicks that did hatch are 14 days old now and look enormous! Ally just finished feeding them and they are having a faceplant nap at the moment. ;)

On Up to Speed today (CBC Radio One) just after 3pm they interviewed someone from Nebraska who was talking about Alley. I think they said Josh (?)...

Here's what Joel Jorgensen posted on his Peregrine Blog on May 17th...

Conquering Canada and the World

Ok, the headline may be a little bit over-the-top.   However, I had the tremendous privilege of being interviewed for about five minutes on the Canadian Broadcast Corporation’s Winnipeg, Manitoba, affiliate today to chat about Peregrine Falcons.  Why would our neighbors to the north want to talk to some yokel in Nebraska about Peregrine Falcons?   Answer:  our female, A/Y or “Ally”, was hatched in Winnipeg in 2004 and showed up in Lincoln in 2005 (and has been here ever since).  Congrats to you if you knew the answer.  They were merely catching up and seeing how the ol’ girl was doing.   Thanks to Mike Green and Larry the afternoon guy for the opportunity to chat. They are still raising falcons in Winnipeg and also have a webcam, their page can be found:

Great video and capture RCF - it's hard to imagine that "our" chicks will be that big soon.

Kinderchick - thanks for posting the blog entry. I don't think they posted the interview.

I feel like I need a Falcon Family Tree on the wall by my computer to keep track of who's who.

The chicks were banded this morning. Two males  :)

Video was shot by Naomi Alhadeff (NGPC Wildlife). http://youtu.be/AmtCP8rKVnE  

The Lincoln Journal Star also has some pictures online, now.  The link is http://tinyurl.com/6omhmut

Although it was nice to see the banding, it seems to me that they handled them way too much and then subjected them to that photo shoot.  I am sure the poor babies were just terrified.

From this afternoon, everyone looks relaxed now after the banding.  :)

These two are losing all their fluff and getting beautiful brown juvenile plumage, probably won't be long before they fledge.

I guess these two have fledged and this isn't official but these names had the most votes in a naming contest and the two males may be called "Lewis and Clark"  who were early explorers of the Louisiana Purchase.
