Thanks TPC - Any news on sibling 2?

By the time I left downtown - Chick 1 was still on the nestledge window ledge and seemed perfectly happy, cool and safe. Chick 2 was on a south facing window ledge and Chick 3 was still on the nestledge.  Now we have 3 on the move.  Chick 3 fledged intentionally this morning at 0700h.  It is windy, hot and humid and no one is moving so we don't know where they are at the moment.  Plan is to go check on them when it gets cooler/quieter and they are more likely to move around again.

Apparently we have a bird that died but it was picked up before I could get to it or before the first reporter good grab a bag to take it with him. A woman named Kimberley gave me a call but didn't leave her phone number so if you know a Kimberly that works or lives downtown who might be inclined to pick up a dead peregrine - please reach out to her and get her to phone or email me with her name and phone number and I will arrange for a pick up.

Thanks!
TPC

Managed to connect with Kimberley but she couldn't take with her as she was on her way to an appointment.  Now I'm hunting for the person who retrieved the chick's body ... hunt continues ... almost as bad as not being able to find them when they fledge!!

More news as I have it.

No news to date - have notified all sorts of folks in the downtown area and the government so perhaps someone will mention it, but just as likely, or maybe more likely, we won't hear anything ... mostly we find the chicks that die in town though admittedly over the years, some have probably slipped past us.  Once they get outside the City however, our chances of finding them should they run into problems is very small.  Kind of balances it out I guess.

It is likely the person who picked the bird up has no idea what it is or that it should be turned over to the provincial government. How many of us stop to pick up small creatures hit by cars, how many of us report individual birds that hit the windows of our homes?  What we know about, we do.  We know about peregrines, most of the world does not.    And if the bird was tossed in the garbage, it wouldn't be the first time in the history of the project and it was good of the person not to leave a dead creature on a public thoroughfare.  Most folks walk right past those things and assume someone else will deal with it.

And yes, it was just unfortunate that the folks who reported were unable to retrieve it but not their fault they don't travel with large plastic bags and have a freezer to put the body in until it could get picked up.  Most folks don't.  It is fortunate however that they reported it however otherwise we would never know even that much. 

And who knows what we may hear, the world is a funny place, sometimes things that seem impossible, aren't.
