I am sorry I have not kept uup  it has been a busy year at all nests 

When Dr court banded, we had one sick chick with Frounce and Dr. court treated with  a pill. He was to leave 2 males here, as this i s a bad site for the chicks to fledge from.

so he left us with  a male and a small female. the other 2 would go to the hack site

coming to band

and I knew I would have to watch carefully now, as they were flapping ans getting ready.  our cam was not great this year. without insert to monitor end they usually go off and no sound , we would have to be vigilant.

if they go off prematurely, they have to be found within hours. As I said this site is brutal and almost impossible to monitor for ground.

our young male left earlier than he should have.July 1 early morning.
 with no insert, I can assume he was flapped off by sister.  I kept my recorder on 24 hours so I could pinpoint time and let  Dr. court know.   I was able to get it within about 5 hours. He could not find him and we went down a few days later and we could not either. but Dr. court said he could make it to a certain roof and be fed by adults.
but the  good thing was  the adult female  was missing a lot.  no news is  good news
so now we have our female and   we pray stays long enough that she will not be hurt if  grounded
first night she was alone

and she wen toff earlier than she should. We had nothing but rain forever and it was slippery and I can only assume she slipped off while preening on edge. Because e I had  recorder running non stop and I had the tim e I lat saw her. I knew her habits, and knew when sh usually came into view. 

so I was able to give Dr. court a  good approximation . His office is downtown. and within in hours of reporting to him, he emailed back that  she had been picked up by 2 police officers and only had one broken tail feather. She was taken and checked over and will be at our hack site. she will do so well there. she will flourish. to put her back here would be signing her death warrant.

so now we wait ans hope our male i s safe
but as I said the good thing we are just seeing our adult male and hoping our adult female  is taking care of her young one

july6
adult male B32

july13
start seeing adult female . and w e are thinking. O.K. kid must be flying  well an din area. Her actions of watching out there and going out at certain times, just give us that feeling. now we do not have sound and insert , and that is how we caught our young male last year, come back for first time

all this time adult male has been digging a hole to China outside side o f box LOL ;D

july15

I have been so busy at other sites that I did not take pictures of adults but kept recorder on here and kept checking. I thought that about 10:09am this morning, I thought I saw the youngster at north end. It skipped in and then skipped out. our male does no t do that. But I could no t be sure as I was not at cam at time to enlarge.
My cam buffered while I was out  but my dear friend Emyrauld, who monitors with me sent me a text, ( I was out) and we have our young male on cam

this was the best gift ever.

here is Emyraulds  video

https://youtu.be/p3vhFwcMXL4

I am no t going to  jinx us  but what a great day. He will have been 52 or 50 days old. I do not know if he was youngest or oldest chick
and also today, July16 Dr. Court is taking his rescued sister, along with the two police officers out to hack site . Her 2 siblings are there waiting. I just cannot tell you , how wonderful I feel. it has been a rough year at all our sites and this is  just the best.

please take the time to  go back to page one an d look at my photos of them growing and coming to this point. I took the time to document for you as this Adult female hailed from Winnipeg. You may no t have Joli anymore but you have her daughter here, passing on all those good genes.

If you go back to 2017 you will see what the hack site is all about.
Peter ad I will be out there in  a week or tow to watch all our youngsters, that could not make it in the city fly. It is an amazing experience

Thanks, Bev.  I did go back and look at your beautiful photo story. 

Very cool to have Jolie's daughter in Edmonton and Princess' daughter Radisson as well.

Thank you very much for your diligence in keeping us updated.
