I watched the chicknapping as well.  Saw their new bling when they were returned, and boy were they screaming.  I, too, think it is 2 females and 1 male.  TPC should let us know soon.

I have been checking back to see Princess with lunch for the little darlings. I must have missed her, all I saw was a poop shoot. Thanks for that!  ::)

Hey Folks - busy day today so apologies for being late reporting.  Yes today was banding day at the Radisson , the youngest chick was 22 days old so old enough to get his bling -and yes the smallest one is a male, the other 2 females.  Princess was In fine form and interesting Pip was off hunting or some such and arrived late - bit like his dad Hart - but when he did arrive he was immediately trying to comfort Princess which was sweet and in character from what I've seen.  Chicks were all great - one female likes to bite and all three have very fast feet - good reflexes in a peregrine. And the little boy is definitely isn't losing out to his sisters at mealtime so no worries there.

Dennis has only just started on his photos so should have one or two shortly to share and the rest will be available on his blog/gallery soon enough. 😊

Thank you for your update and the beautiful photo by Dennis, TPC.

I'm happy to hear the chicks are well and that Pip tried to comfort Princess - how sweet of him ♥ - wish I could have seen that!

Thanks TPC for your update. Another biter???? Hope you kept your thumbs tucked in! Thought I would check in to see the little Royals. Princess nearly blocks the view after bringing in pre-breakfast. Great to see the chicks "cutting" up their own meal and feeding themselves. However :'(, ones thoughts go to the time left to watch their journey to fledging. Looking forward to banding photos, Dennis!  ;D

These chicks are growing and developing faster than I, for one, want to see. I am now watching them wingercising. Too soon. When you chicknapped them yesterday for banding, did Eye Spy have a chance to check the cameras for our patio and promenade viewing? ???

We are working on the skycam - the camera itself is fine but YouTube Live is having some trouble streaming the signal smoothly.  As for the one down at the end of the ledge, Eye-Spy is trying to source a replacement camera and if we can replace for this year we will, otherwise it will be something to look forward to next year!

Princess...Minneapolis Minnesota hatch 2002.
Princess is now 15 years old and has been the resident female at the Radisson since 2004.
During this time she has had 4 mates...Trey, Ivy,Smiley and now Pip.
Recent photos are towards the end of the gallery...with more action photos of both Princess & Pip being added in the next few days so keep checking back.
