33 South Sixth, formerly known as International Multifoods Tower, is a skyscraper in Minneapolis, Minnesota. It was designed by Skidmore, Owings and Merrill and stands 52 stories tall at 668 ft (204 m). Its name comes from its address: 33 South Sixth Street, Minneapolis. It was completed in 1983 as headquarters for International Multifoods Corporation which occupied the structure until 1997 when it moved to suburban Wayzata. Although the corporate offices relocated, the name remained until 2003 under the terms of its lease. The attached Minneapolis City Center consists of a retail mall, renovated in 2005, with six skyway connections, the Minneapolis Marriott at City Center, a 583-room full-service hotel, and a 687-stall parking garage office tower tenant and retail patrons. (source: Wikipedia)  Seems to be considered one of the ugliest skyscrapers in Minneapolis.

Younger and his unbanded mate were also the resident pair in 2014 and 2015.

Hey Alison - do we know if Younger & his unbanded mate are back here again this year? 
Now that they have an egg, hopefully the parents have shown enough leg for their identities to have been confirmed ... maybe ... hopefully ?

TPC, I think you meant to ask if Triumph and Genie are back this year?

Younger was found dead in Minneapolis on March 17 of 2016. His injuries were consistent with having been in a territorial battle.

I did ask about this on another site when the first egg was laid, but have not heard anything back so far. Not enough resolution to be able to see or read bands on the webcam at this stage.

It has now been confirmed by Jackie Fallon that Triumph and Genie are still the resident pair.

They are incubating four eggs.

Triumph and Genie have three chicks this year, and today the chicks were banded. All three are male.

Triumph with his chicks:



Genie (or Geanie, according to today's spelling); she is gorgeous.
