Thanks...good to know!! Well, either they changed their minds and opened it earlier, the mechanism malfunctioned, or the kids broke out...LOL

Ya know, that shadow could be one of the kids (I hope) and that's why they aren't moving it for fear of scaring it off. It certainly is stretching like a kid!! (not that adults don't stretch)

Most definitely a kid. it was kid screaming...and now they are taking a chance and trying to find where it is sitting....not on top of the box or the ledge next to the box....so, where!! Maybe behind the cam? That's where one of the parents sits sometimes...

I don't see that water bottle contraption, I wonder if the just got out. That would be hilarious. Thanks for the play by play everyone. I guess I'll try and get down to check it out, fortunately I live really close now but they've destroyed the park we used to sit in below the building.

Thanks Buncombe...and duh...LOL the joke's on us!!!

My last pics of the Shadow Falcon...totally unimpressive unless you were watching..

The chick had been hop/flapping along whatever this structure is..


Image

Then started moving out of view..

Image

even further

Image

Image

They tried to track the shadow..Maybe a falcon...and maybe not!!

Image

They started panning and as they were coming back around, parent on top of the box ( I think Ozzie) who was doing a lot of talon cleaning and feaking...maybe a food drop to the shadow falcon? Who knows..

Image

Image

Parent is now gone off the top of the box..

Just tuned in to read all the things that have happened. I just looked at the camera and I see what looks like something sitting on the n in the word bank. Maybe just my wishful thinking. I don't know how far that bank is from where the nest is.

If it was a parent..it headed "that away!!" Actually, it dropped down first (in front of the building) before turning to our right outta view...(I should have made a curved line..LOL)

Suntrust is a favorite perch spot for the adults. Sounds like they have spotted the male on the 4th floor but no female yet.
