Gigi and SGB - need your help please!

New male just ID'd in Rochester, he's shown up with a banded female and Joyce got his bands and is hanging out at HE nest site. Seems he's the grandson of Zephyr and Guinevere maybe if what I've dug up is correct? They found a pdf with the ID of his parents:


Racine County Courthouse, WI

Adult Female: b/g R/13 - produced in 2007 at the Tower Building in South Bend, Indiana - she's back for her 5th year (this was printed the year this male Buckee was born)

Adult Male: Beaster, b/g 67/M is the father, born in 2005 at WE Energies, Pleasant Prairie Power Plant.


Carly..it says the Falcon's name is Buckee 2013 Female banded black 54 over red V

Hmmm..Joyce is saying it's male but band records say female...we'll have to wait and see what her photos show later. May be a 'large' male ?

Edit to add: found the Racine thread from 2013 - I knew the name Beaster was familiar. The thread says 2 boys that year but banding report says 2 females.. :gaaaaah:


Sounds like Joyce is pretty sure Buckee is a male.

Sounds like Joyce is pretty sure Buckee is a male. All I know is DC better stay away from BS and pay more attention to DT and what's going on up north. :furious:

Well don't mean to hijack the SB thread but that falcon that's just appeared at BS could be the unbanded male that was with the female at HE because both birds are banded there now. Lots of new falcons in Rochester in the past month - going to be some changes coming I expect.


MAK said it was DC down at BS today. They've seen a female there too.

It appears I'm "tardy to the party"!! LOL

4 hatches at Racine in 2013, with 2 chick deaths...The midwest data base has Buckee listed as Male. We must have entered it wrong on our Banding Report!! I'll go fix that!!

Rochester has always been a hot spot for falcons!!

Thanks for the heads up and research, ladies!!

Data base says 2 males, but Greg's report says 2 females. So now who do we go by?

Actually the Database says that Buckee is Male

...and his Sister:

Maybe Greg changed his mind when he submitted his report to the Database..OR his report has a typo!!

Guess we'll find out if Buckee hangs around until spring and nests...then we will see who lays the eggs (if there are eggs)

Sent Greg Septon an email with the info and link to Rochester Forum. I am sure he will be thrilled to hear about Buckee beating the odds and surviving!

OK...mystery solved...the answer is yes!! I did some back tracking and found this:

Apparently, Indiana stopped submitting to the Database in 2007. Lucky for us that was the year that Buckee's mom was born.

Buckee's Mom's parents are:

Parents: M~2206-28918, F~1807-62135 (no band numbers listed)

Thankfully, both FWS band #'s were in the database!!

G and Z are Buckee's grandparents!!!! :sum9: :sum9: :sum9:

HI guys,

I saw Zeus today on the building, he is looking very pert ! The storm and brief cold weather doesn't seem to have bothered him at all.

Exciting news about a South Bend grandchild ! :turkeyride:
