If they're doing the banding today, it's going to be hot work! :P

BTW, I love the name "Polo" :)

I've been doing some sleuthing... read back in the June posts to determine that "Solo" was born on June 16th.  That makes s/he 30 days old today and if TPC was to band s/he then it has to be now or never.... which makes me wonder... is that what she's out doing this morning???  :o

Sure hope so as I'm dying to know if we have another female (fingers crossed) and to finally see a picture of her/him!

I hope so, I would love to see some pictures too.  :)

Actually, there are alot of Solos on the books, but I was thinking of "Polo" since s/he is a solo and the West Winnipeg territory is west of Polo Park.  Works well for both male and female.
Polo is cute! 
There is the option of "West" as well!
Good idea Allicat, maybe it could be Maewest if chick is a girl, the lady was an icon of her time. :)

Solo, Polo, Polo Park, Marco Polo, Polo sporting.
This chick may have an interesting life living up to the name.

Is calling this single chick from a nest "Solo" an option?

Good choice TPC. Isn't Polo a sport of the rich just like falconry is? I believe Prince William played Polo on his trip to north America last week so you could say the name Polo has a royal connection. :)

Yes, it does seem that there have been lots of chicks named "Solo", when they are the lone chick at the nestsite. The NSW chick at Charles Sturt U in Australia this past year was named "Solo". But "Polo" sounds like a great name, TPC, for all the reasons you have mentioned. :) And who knows, maybe he/she will become an explorer like Marco "Polo"? ;)

Plan is to band!  Must know what kind of name to give him/her :)
And yes, access is difficult, but we think we have it sorted. 
And yes, we will have banding photos - or rather Dennis will

Thank you Tracy.
I'm sure you'll come up with a wonderful name, can't wait to see the pictures.

TPC, is this little one going to be banded, or is the location just too difficult to access?

Thanks for the update TPC and as for names I know you have a long list to choose from :)

Ditto, Rose. I, too, was wondering how this little guy was doing.
