I was hoping that Dori didn't get spooked by someone moving the blinds and peering out the window at them when they were at the old nest. The other PEFAs never seemed to have a problem with it there, but maybe Dori caught someone staring at her.

Banding Day, 2011, was one of the best days of my life! Especially when Dori escaped from the box as the Game Commission brought her inside!
:teehee:

Bev - I watched the 2 eggs on the cam and listened to Tasha2 wail all night long. It was really eerie. Then... Dori. She's been a good mom ever since. (I still miss Tasha2, though.)

we always miss our favorites but the others find a different place in our hearts. :egg17:

I remember the wailing. It was so sad.

Louie & Dori's kids have been congregating very close to the edge of their nesting site a few blocks from the Gulf Tower. Fledge watch starts this Saturday, but they apparently didn't get the word. One of the chicks "fledged" this morning and was quickly taken by the PGC. Not sure if they will band it before releasing it again. Pictures on the Pittsburgh Falconuts FB page.

Thanks, Antilogical! Yes, these kids don't necessarily go by our fledge schedules. I know that a couple of Harrisburg's watchers start watching a couple of days before fledge watch officially begins.

Fortunately, Kate St John had contacted the local shops & building security ahead of time, so they knew what to do....

I usually start day 37 .

good luck to these young ones and all watchers. once they get their wings under them they are so fun to watch

All 3 of Mary-Cleo-Dori's and Louie's chicks have fledged! They're looking really good.
