:eggsmile: Thanks for the video, SGB ! Iam sure glad they are all safe in the nestbox- although the one big one is kinda pushing her luck... And of course one is showing off how brave he is....

:loveheart2: Hmm, I'm checking out the cam. I see 2 sleeping babies in the nestbox, but then another baby wanders into view on the porch with a chunk of prey in his beak! He gets a few pieces off, and a sibling who was also on the porch wanders into view. You can tell he would like some too, brother turns a bit - Nope. Sibling reaches in and snatches it away, hurrying toward the front of the porch.. Sibling follows. Somebody comes back. With the prey and jumps in the nest box. He proceeds to gnaw on the prey. The sleepers wake up- must be mom has more prey out on the porch. One goes out to mom, the other is hovering behind the guy who's got a chunk of prey....No sharing going on. Sibling steps over and helps herself. Now all four are in the box. Time for an afternoon nap?

:eggsmile: Spent the afternoon fledge-watching with Matrix and friend Ray. It was unseasonably cold and windy, which perhaps discouraged the fledglings from becoming too daring. One did traverse the entire length of the southern side of the building three times. He would walk along and then stop and flap his wings as hard as he could... He REALLY wants to go. Another accompanied the dare devil a couple times to the west corner of the building. Then they would just sit there looking out, like they were planning out where to go when they fledged...The third perched on the lip of the porch, flapping her wings, and the fourth one stayed on the porch, also flapping their wings. Matrix thinks #1 is about ready to go, maybe tomorrow. Stay tuned.....

:eggsmile: Thankyou for putting Kate's article on BCAW, SGB. It's so exciting that Magnum is paired with one of Dorothy and E2's kids!
Meanwhile, back at the Canton ranch, we had a lot of flapping, and some run-flapping, and a lot of exploring, but no jumpers....

:eggup: As posted by Cheryl on Facebook, Matrix and Ray have seen the two boys fledge this morning at 11:25. Actually, one meant to fledge, but knocked his brother off as he fledged... Interesting to me, Matrix says Mystic escorted one boy while Mo escorted the other. Axel landed safely on the chimney of the First Lady's museum, and Cooper ended up on a 7th floor window ledge of the Canton Club building (where the nestbox is) which is also safe. Cheryl's post in Facebook says Axel has taken several short flights, the last one taking him to a ledge under the court house angel clock. Cooper is still on the 7th floor window ledge.... Matrix says he just needs to get his confidence up... Thank you so much Cheryl, Matrix, and Ray for you devotion to Canton's falcon family!

I'm also glad the fledging here has started out well, & that Mo is taking an active part in helping with the kids. That has to be a big contribution to successful fledging by these kids! :clap:

:loveheart2: Our boys continue to do well, making short flights from one building, chimney, clock ledge, to another. And today, their sister "Anna" decided to join them ! It was a bit unexpected, and she may have surprised herself as well, as at first she did not move a whole lot. But, according to a Facebook post by Matrix and Cheryl, she was flying with more confidence later this evening. This afternoon, though, Mystic put on an amazing show in defending a baby from a perceived threat. I think someone was making a delivery to a business in an alley a block west of the parking garage. HOWEVER a fledge was on a chimney just above... Mystic suddenly flew into a rage- started kakking loudly and streaked toward the alley. She circled above the alley twice, and then launched into these amazing U shaped dives upon her hapless "victim". And as she was diving, she was screaming her head off, which echoed wildly against the walls of the alley. Luckily, Chad Saldin was there to intervene for Mystic AND her confused victim....I'm hoping he will include some pictures or narrative about it on their Facebook page...
Again, Thankyou to Matrix and Ray, who were on watch on and off all day. Also to Chad Saladin for driving down from Cleveland...Our fledges are in good hands!

Matrix and Cheryl had much to share on their Facebook page about Canton's fledglings this weekend. Saturday was fairly quiet. The boys and Anna continued to test their wings while sister Madge remained on the Canton Club building. On Sunday, Madge decided it was time to take the plunge. Not only did she leave the nest, she flew very well, and landed very well. Later Matrix and Cheryl said "Madge is crazy! She is making up for lack of activity by making several Mystic-guided flights, and she is already back at the nestbox!" According to the Facebook entries, the four were busy all day, playing by the nest box, meeting on the chimney, or perched on roofs. The highlight of the day was Mystic attempting a food exchange with Anna... Matrix and Cheryl aren't saying what happened next - we are supposed to "stay tuned" as they will reveal the answer at the next Facebook entry....Thanks again, Matrix, Cheryl, and Ray for keeping sharp eyes on these precious peregrines!
