For the first time today, one of the chicks ventured out onto the ramp:

Part of the Nestbox News update from June 15:

"On Friday, June 12, we banded the three nestlings at 101 Hudson. Two are females and one is male. Their size difference is often evident on the camera, as the male is about 1/3 smaller than his sisters.

. . . .We also left a small ramp at the nest box, because experience has shown that as the nestlings approach 4 weeks of age, they get restless and jump out of the box; without the ramp they cannot reenter the box easily. They’re in no danger, though, because they could find cover under the box, but the comfort of the box seems to be an important factor.

. . . .During banding, examination showed all three young to be very healthy. We attached the numbered federal band on their right leg, and a bicolor (black over green) band on their left leg. Their color band numbers are A/11 and A/12 for the females, and 72/W for the male. The adults remain extremely protective of their young, and we were lucky to depart unscathed and unscratched. As the nestlings approach 4-5 weeks of age no one will approach the nest area, to make sure the young birds take their time as they become ready to take their first flight."

The chicks are getting big now, and are very well fed:

After reading your post decided to take a look at this site. Read their Web News to catch up on events and apparently the chicks are 3 weeks old and banding for them is tomorrow. They said all that will be seen tomorrow from 10:15am for approx 30 minutes will be the empty nest, so don't panic when you don't see them. They also said something about adjusting the outside camera, so maybe a different view. Will check tomorrow.

2009 NESTING SEASON

The birds here in NJ hatched around the same time this year as the ones in Manitoba so I've been watching them as well as ones in Pittsburgh who have already fledged & who have flown the nest this week. I was watching the chicks here in NJ getting fed by one of the parents & the one chick just up & took the food from the parent & took it to the back of the nest box to eat it all for him/herself. It was so funny because the parent didn't know what to do it kept looking at the chick & then looking around to see if there was anymore food for the other 2 chicks.

Latitude, surprisingly enough is the biggest determinant.  The Fargo Birds are usually 2 weeks ahead of us and Fargo is only 4 hours south of us.  You find that kind of time difference all the way up from Texas - the California birds are practically (if not actually) fledging when our chicks are hatched.  Makes for a great season of peregrine webcam viewing.  :D

The region and its temperature/weather patterns probably play a large part in how early the birds nest and hatch chicks. :)

LOTS of flapping going on with these two! Won't be long now before they start trying to fly.

I watched this site last year and they were quite far ahead of Winnipeg's falcons in terms of hatching/fledging then too. I wonder if it's just that particular pair of falcons that are ahead of the game or if it hatch dates differ regionally?

Here's another webcam of Peregrine's.  These ones are already banded and up and around.  Seems they've had a bit of a rough start already.

Thanks for posting the link....it was really tragic to lose 2 of the little ones so early on...but so glad these two are doing well...

Thanks for sharing that one - it's interesting to see chicks that are already nearing fledging!  It does sound like a rough go of it, but the two there now look pretty good.

I'm watching them climb up the ramp and look around like they want to fly.   ;D
