The names seem so appropriate with those faces!

Stopped by the site this evening around 6 pm. First we spotted Ty on the east sign, eating dinner. As we headed around to check out the other side of the building spotted a bird flying to the north. It was Faith. She didn't go far. So I set up to take a couple of candid shots of her. She then took off to the south and while I was trying to focus on her flying, I spotted another bird in my peripheral vision. The next thing I knew there was swooping high and very low, an attack was happening. Then Faith headed back to her building. When I looked around for my husband, who had been shouting at me while I was trying to track and focus my camera on the action, I found him lying on the ground. Well, I figured out where the second bird was, under a car and my husband was frantically calling for me. A quick look told me I didn't have to worry too much, it was a pigeon. Still alive, no visible blood, but definately dazed. I don't know if the pigeon was otherwise damaged, and I wasn't crawling under the car to drag out the flying rat. He's just lucky to have survived that go round.

From TPC's photo, we don't have to worry. The kids are still being fed.

All the kids are fine as of 1130h today - boys are on the Bleachers noshing on delivery courtesy of Faith and Titania is tucked up napping in the sun (not surprising, she was a soggy mess for much of yesterday) on the wall edge.  Funny how it was so unnerving when they first stumbled around up there, but now, she's on the opposite side of the building, napping on a 8-12 inch ledge and it doesn't look nearly as scary.

Yes he was almost lost - I might not have found him if you wouldn’t have pointed him out. ;D

All the chicks are back at the nestbox - this troup is so cute.  Oberon and Puck are sitting in the nestbox napping with their heads over their shoulders and tucked under their wings.  Titania is much more of a sun worshipper - she's lying down sound asleep at the bottom of the ram in the sun, out of the wind.

Thank you for the following report, Dennis and TPC. It's good to hear that all is well and I hope it stays that way!

West Wpg - report from Dennis - Titania has fledged! Oberon followed after her & then there was a family game of aerial chase #mbfalcons

Yesterday evening, we went for a drive and spotted two chicks on the east sign. While we were watching one of the adults flew in and dropped off some dinner. One chick was very happy hogging the dinner and one chick yelled at the parent as it flew off. The adult lazily circled away. We set off in the direction of the adult and found her (I think it was Faith) at the Tower. Then we spotted one falcon on the top of the Bleachers on the east side. Had it's back to me and I was facing west with the sun in my face, so not positive if this was the other adult or one of the chicks (I think it was one of the chicks). We were able to see 4 out of 5 of the falcons in this area so we thought this was a really successful drive.

All quiet at home base today - only Faith is hanging out from time to time.
