I don't want to alarm any of you, but we have had a report of a possible falcon fatality on December 10. Apparently someone saw what he believed to be a downed falcon at the corner of Meridian and Ohio Streets which is just one block north of the nest box. He called the DNR to report, but did not say whether the bird in question had bands. Anna, one of the watchers who works in Market Tower immediately went looking, but could not find anything. Since then KathyQ has been positively identified on the ledge [see SGB's picture] so now we are trying to get a positive ID on Kinney. Here is the identifying info. So if anyone gets a positive ID on Kinney, please PM me. Thanks so much. gigi :sosad

Kinney
Image
Kinney - band on the left leg should be black over red 7/*3 but his band is so faded it can no longer be read. Both bands look silver
The number 7 is still plain to see but the *3 is all worn off.
His chest seems much whiter
He is smaller in the overall image and he tends to sit still more of the time
His wing feathers extend slightly past his tail feathers
KathyQ
Image
KathyQ - band on the left leg is black over red *B/*C
*B looks like a McDonald's double arches with a underline unless she is holding her foot out, then it is B upright. The *C looks like a "fat" letter U when laid on its side.
She has more speckles on her chest.
She has a larger head when looking at their backs
From the back or side, her wing feathers are about even when perched on the inside edge

Oh No! I sure hope the person reporting this was just misinformed about it being a falcon. Will keep an eye out for Kinney. Hopefully, we can get a sighting real soon and put our worries to rest.

I suppose this is Kathy . . . looking at the white chest there are a few speckles, and comparing wing tips to tail . . .

Laura reported this just a little bit ago. No pictures...
"I know that this report of a falcon fatality was a bit upsetting to
some folks, so I just wanted to say I saw 2 birds the box yesterday.
One was definitely KathyQ as she jumped down in the box and I was able
to definitely read her band. I also saw 2 falcons - one on the perch
(definitely KathyQ) and one in the box - a bit of bowing going on. I
didn't get a read on the band on the bird that was bowing in the box
but I'm pretty sure it was Kinney."

That's a relief. I trust Laura to recognize Kinney.

Yes, that is a relief--I'm getting a bit paranoid when our tiercels are missing with this being such a horrible year for tiercel fatalities! So glad Kinney has been spotted--now if Harrisburg Lil Dad would make an appearance!

Thanks for the update Gigi, I know that made you and all of us feel better.

How long has Lil Dad be on the go Nancy?

thanks Beth!!

Laura reported seeing Kinney about 7:30 this morning, so I hope this is him. I usually can tell if I can see his chest or by looking at his wing length compared to his tail, but not with this picture. I guess we can all relax about the downed peregrine notice from earlier. I still would like to get a definitive picture of him.

This one looks small to me, so I'm thinking its Kinney! :banasan:
