PREVIOUS:
FEMALES
Scarlet, 2014 until June 20, 2014, b/r 42/V, 2012 hatch from Madison Gas and Electric Blount Power, Madison Wisconsin, parents Vern & Trudy. Per Carole Riewe rehabber: "Scarlett was injured Friday night down at the Cove. She hit the large tire on a piece of maintenance equipment - obviously diving in after food. Animal Control brought her out to me and I started treating her for head injury. She was a little better on Saturday and this morning (Sunday) but when I got home from downtown in the afternoon she had expired."
Guinivere from 2003- 2014. Arrived unbanded (subsequently banded) so her origins are unknown. Her body was discovered Monday, January 20, 2014 in a snowbank. Her death may have been weather related.

MALE: Zephyr [2007 - June 2012 at this site. Died 6/19/2012 of head injuries suffered while hunting.] was hacked (released) at a cliff on the Mississippi in Muscatine, Iowa, 1999. In the spring of 2011, Zephyr lost his left foot, most likely in a trap of some sort. He seemed to be doing well. He was able to fly, had been seen bringing food to Guinevere, and shared incubation duties with her.

From 2007 to 2012 Guinevere and Zephyr nested in downtown South Bend in a box on top of the 14-story County-City Building at 227 West Jefferson Blvd. The nesting box was on Tower Building for four years before that. They have raised a brood each year and remain here right through the winter. Incubation of the 3 or 4 eggs takes approximately 32 days, with Guinevere performing most of the incubation, while Zephyr provides food and relieves her for short periods of time. The chicks are banded at about 21 to 25 days of age and fledge the nest around 40 days. As fledgling approaches, the young birds can be seen out on the front of the nestbox and on the perch that extends outward. They are usually flying pretty well in a week's time, following and interacting with the parents, and will leave the area in another six weeks. A female chick from our 2007 nest was part of a nesting pair last year in Racine, Wisconsin. 2014 ~ Rebecca, Guinevere and Zephyr 2009 hatch now nesting in Kalamazoo MI!
