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

Finger little brother mauled was swollen for a couple of days, not so bad today and probably fine by Monday.  Did make a quick trip to the doctor's office to see if my tetanus shot was all up-to-date .... it was ...  Dennis took a picture of my arm covered in feces and some blood, saving that for a blog post on how glamorous it is to work with the peregrines  :-X  ;D

I hope your arm and hand are okay, TPC! It seems Little Brother really dislikes being picked up. He looks as if he has quite a temper, but he is a beautiful young peregrine.

The cam was working until yesterday evening, but when I went to the site this morning the cam is gone. Did Shaw take it down already? Seems a bit abrupt if they did.

Perhaps it can still be viewed in the Winnipeg area, but from where I am it is definitely gone.  ???

TPCs tweet right below where the cam should be says they're having some technical issues.  :)

We are having difficulties with YouTube talking to the FalconCam page but you can still watch the cam on YouTube direct

It's a small world (after all)!  :D

Thank you for sharing the interesting information regarding Jean Ann Purdie and her connection to you and your family, RCF.  8)

At first glance I liked the name Purdie (maybe because it rhymes with my forum name - not sure - but I like it).

In my post above I forgot to mention that "It's a Small World" was a song that came to mind while reading RCF's post. I assume most people will recognize the song but it may help to post the lyrics.  :)

It's a world of laughter, a world of tears
It's a world of hopes and a world of fears
There's so much that we share
That it's time we're aware
It's a small world after all

It's a small world after all
It's a small world after all
It's a small world after all
It's a small, small world

There is just one moon and one golden sun
And a smile means friendship to everyone
Though the mountains divide
And the oceans are wide
It's a small world after all

It's a small world after all
It's a small world after all
It's a small world after all
It's a small, small world

TPC, Thank you for posting some important things to consider when choosing names for our peregrines - they're all very thoughtful. You're the best!

Just putting some thoughts out there.  :)

Watching peregrine falcons on live cams is educational for humans so naming a chick in honour of an educator may be a way for us to express gratitude to the peregrines; considering that, I think it would be nice to name our male in honour of Wilfred Gilbert Pearce, educator.

Pearce rhymes with pierce and our cute ďlittle terrorĒ has been known to pierce skin (in his defence against humans), so the name Pearce would again be fitting for this youngster (in my opinion). And of course Iím hoping he will live a long life as a fierce and powerful adult peregrine.

You get three choices but once you vote you can not go back and change them - you have another day to make your final choices, so you have a bit longer to take the leap!

Very nice names! It was tough to choose because the more I pondered - the more reasons I found for liking a couple other names as well.  :D
