Found this posted on the Poland chat:

PKIN: Emily Falcon the new owner wants to get rid of falcons (From SWINWK: The look on this one's face "says it all!" Poor baby!)



PKIN: and another owner wants to take this pair Emily and Frederic (From SWINWK: Sorry you all, I was so slow in figuring out how to copy these photos, the one showing the falcon sitting atop the new abode had fallen off chat ... but, it's the green foliage you see to the right of this lovely couple in the next 2 photos. And what a view they have!!!)

PKIN: Emily accepts new lodgings

Thank you SWINWK and DEF! Hope they won't be disturbed by tenants who don't want them here at this nest and can concentrate on raising their family! :7val:

Here is the link to Robyn's picture of Emily's second egg on FB. She said Emily let her walk right up to the planter before she complained. She said she must know Robyn! :hapdance:



(You will need to scroll down a tiny bit.)

Update from Robyn this morning...posted on FB

    Hello Emily Falcon lovers, I had a lovely photo for you of Emily sitting looking into our window, with the nest site in the background... But, my phone went for a swim this morning, so I'm sorry, I can't post it!

    So, the update is.... One of the chicks was reported to the building manager as being on a lower balcony for several days. They phoned Ross Harrison (my handsome husband) and between them, organised for Australia Zoo to come out and see what was up.

    They arrived within an hour, and discovered it had a broken wing, so picked it up and took it back to their medical section.

    While they were here, we gave them permission to go through upstairs to check the nest site. The other two chicks were there with food from a kill, so seemed to be ok.

    Maybe that's what Emily was trying to tell me?! So at least we know that all three chicks are still around.

Very sad news from Robyn...from FB

    Australia Zoo rang to let the building managers know that the chick didn't make it. There were spinal injuries on top of the broken shoulder bone.
    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

UPDATE!!!!!!
Emily Falcon
4 hrs
Robyn Hills here. Long post alert!

Thanks for your patience everyone, and for your support.
Rules of Engagement for this page - please be mindful to make helpful suggestions and comments.

About six weeks ago, we asked for help with suggestions and ideas about being able to live harmoniously with our neighbours and the peregrine falcons. We received loads of help and connections from around the world and locally. Thank you all.

There was a meeting on the weekend of the concerned parties.
On cue, Emily appeared minutes beforehand to check on proceedings!

Several of the building unit owners are still very much against having the falcons continue to nest on the building, as it affects their balconies with debris, leftover meals and droppings, which I understand is not pleasant. People are also concerned about theirs and their children's safety during breeding season.

Apart from the obvious that they are protected by law, it is still a matter of doing our best to compromise so that there is as little animosity as possible between the dwellers.

It was agreed that we could have a new nesting box. The experts advice is that the planters boxes need to be covered to discourage nesting there, and hopefully pointing them in the right direction to the dedicated box. This will be placed on the highest roof, facing away from the open balconies, in an attempt to minimise the impact of the falcons on the residents.

Need to get some engineering and designs, and get it built and up, in plenty of time for nesting season.

I know that they may reject the nesting box, but it was a compromise I offered to help both parties.

It was quite confronting for me to be labelled an 'Animal Lover' (said with the venom of a snake!) but I have to stand up for what I believe in and do what I think is the right thing to do. As nature cannot speak for itself, I've elected to be their voice. Possibly that's why they chose our balcony in the first place!
