I'm just itching to be downtown, doing fledge-watch this year, but life keeps getting in the way!  Wish I could be down there now, looking for the little guy! :-\

1538h CDT - one of the chicks is across from the nestbox on the roof of the Rogers building.  Could be any of the three including little brother ...

Haven't seen anything of the chicks or adults at the box or in the immediate vicinity at all today ...

They might come back once or twice but the FalconCam won't be live all summer and Shaw TV won't show an empty nestbox for the next couple of months either.   We monitor the cameras year-round, so if someone pops up we'll probably catch a glimpse of them and if we can catch a decent photo we'll be sure to post it no worries.

I guess 3rd time WAS the charm for our little male. Since we haven't seen his sisters at the nestbox, I was beginning to think you and Dennis would be our "eyes" until they migrate. I look forward to your posts and photos, TPC. BTW, have you looked at your #'s? 10 more and you hit 10,000! WOW!  :o Thanks for the PF education!

I'm hoping that was little brother you spotted on the Rogers building yesterday, TPC. If so, it appears he did very well on his third try.

I really want our cute little terror to stay out of trouble!

Perhaps you will spot all three together (or around the same time) ... think I recall you doing that one year.

Good luck!

You would think that after being picked up for the second time he would be used to TPC...not so, he just latched on to TPC's hand and wouldn't let go. I wanted a close-up but felt it only far to help out by removing the talons from her hand.

"Little Brother" gets returned to the nestbox for the second time...appears 3rd. time a charm ? Fingers crossed.

He is beautiful, your arm doesn't look as good, does it still hurt?
