Two of them were enjoying hanging out on the wall this evening. One decided to lay low, while the other one waved to me, then showed me the red tape on their left leg.

Fantastic catch Dupre! Beautiful colour in your photos. Thank you. 8)

Thanks for keeping us updated TPC! and love the photos.

Could you let us know any markers you put on the chicks? Which is the female and males?

On Friday, spotted one chick looking over the east wall at about 1:30 pm. and Faith on the sign at about 4 pm.



Sunday about 1:30 spotted one chick with what looks like red tape on their left leg doing a bit of wing stretching. Then launched itself onto the roof. Won't be long till their headed out the other way.



At about 4:20 pm, one chick with white or silver on left leg also doing some stretching on the wall.

Double fledge last night - the one Dupre caught and the other male went sometime later but he didn't do it on camera.  One of the two boys was returned to the roof this morning as he appeared to be unhurt, other one we are trying to locate but if he is on a rooftop, we won't see him until he sits on an edge or decides to fly again.


Sorry, correction here ... the boys are fine, looks like they both went last night and it was the female who went this morning and was rescued.  Too much multi-tasking when I made my initial report!!

Breaking News - report from Dennis - all three chicks accounted for - at the moment Ty is parked at the nestbox, Faith is in the other end of the same wall and between them is the female chick.  Male #1 is on the south wall visible to Faith and Male #2 is on the west wall visible to Ty and the female chick.

All are accounted for and seem fine!

The kids aren't interested in going anywhere at the moment - they are curled up out of most of the wind - Ty is at the nestbox keeping an eye on them

??? Have the chicks been named? 

Yes, they have.  For whatever reason I was really twitchy about publishing the names before they fledged - like it would jinx it or something.  Not sure why, maybe everything was going so well made me nervous.

Anywho, the chicks here are named in honour of 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death - all from Midsummer's Night Dream which seemed appropriate - aren't our peregrines all midsummer dreams?  Female is Titania (no tape/silver), Oberon (red) and Puck (green).  I sincerely hope that these chicks all grow up to be the gender the size of their feet "said" they were!!!  Oberon will be a tough one to live with if it's a girl!  ;D  Titania and Oberon hang out together the most and Puck is the smallest and most adventurous.
