I saw the beautiful falcons yesterday afternoon on one of my (sadly) rare trips to downtown this year. Perching, wheeling, soaring, and yes, some flapping too.

Very glad to see Zeus on-cam, I have no binocs right now to I.D. the birds and wasn't sure from the ground if I was seeing Zeus or the male juvie.

Speaking of Ids, since the birds are living so close to a bar district, does anyone know the drinking age for a falcon in Indiana? :toast And what about Michigan, a mere five mile jaunt from the nest box? :toast :hithere:

too funny, sbwatcher...so I thought I'd do some research...sadly, the peregrine falcon was not listed as a bird option, so I chose the parakeet, who has a life span of 5-15 years...of course, I could have chosen the mynah bird...so, choose your bird...LOL



Since Maltese is 3, that makes her 28 in human years, so she's ready to party!! Since we don't know how old Zeus is, I'm sure she could get him a fake ID to be on the safe side..

Ok, I will keep an eye out while everyone else is watching the Olympics. Sorry that I haven't been able to watch much this year, sometimes life happens. The last time I posted, I actually saw two females and a male, so I'm not sure if the last young one left yet.

:thanku Hi sbwatcher- thanks for keeping an eye on them for us when you can. I've had one of "those" summers too . Oh well, I guess it's a good thing if "life happens". I was so surprised that the cam was off- it has been on continuously in the 4 or 5 years that I've been watching...

Thank you Tsusan and everyone else who checks in here, nice to get a little love :7val:




I'm happy to report that after weeks and weeks of looking out, I've seen falcons ! Two nights ago a larger one and last night a smaller one, both seen at dusk on the same perch. ( That's one each night. ) So I'm guessing Maltese the first night and Zeus last night.

Where have they been in the daytimes?
Maybe they have been flying around Lake Michigan to keep cool. :fangirl:

Wishing everyone well and good luck with fall preparations! :leaves:

:4turkey: :4turkey: Attention folks :pilgrimwave: Attention ........ ahem .......

:gobble: OVER HERE :gobble: OVER HERE


hmmmmm....... maybe this one will get them
:1turkey: HEY GUYS, BIRDIE ON THE BUILDING

seen several times towards dusk. I think it is Zeus. Also a bird on top of the nest box in the middle of the day when I went to the building for my poll worker training on November 6th, two days before the election. I wonder if that falcon was able to cast an absentee ballot successfully. Our two ARE US citizens, after all. :usa

Hi guys a :sum9: BIG THANK YOU :sum9: for all the appreciation ! Someone is on the building right now in the middle of the day, looks to be Maltese, since this bird is a bit bigger than Zeus.

Bonus raptor sighting: about one mile from our falcons, a hawk was chasing birds by my neighbor's house and swooped low enough for me to see its white speckled belly, about 20 feet off the ground. It missed the birds, then turned and perched in a tree. "Twas too big to be a peregrine, plus they don't fly that low. Possibly a Cooper's hawk.

Maybe our falcons hunt in the morning and then play in the leaves. :leaves:

Bye til nexttime

sbwatcher and her cat, playing in the leaves :leafwave:
