It shouldn't be much longer since Cirrus laid hers early as usual. They figure about May 14th to 20th range is when the downtown eggs hatch.

I recently learned there is another nest in a quarry in Stoney Creek.

Anymore hatchings at the bridge nest? The eggs should be hatching anytime now downtown.
I haven't heard anymore on the progress, but according to the falcon Site, the banding isn't far off;

"May 14th - 2015
Just a quickly update on the banding schedule for Burlington. We have been able to book and secure a banding date of Monday May 25th at 11am.
Due to the ongoing bridge maintenance and all of the restricted and limited space around the bridge, its going to be a very quick process indeed.
We will post the any additional news and updates as its become available."

Pretty good odds, our city producing 5 chicks for sure. :)

Let's hope they all survive.

From the Falcon Site

Mark Nash Reports:

May 25th - 2015
Todays banding went very well indeed despite the feisty attitude of the three young hatchlings! While this is only the third banding so far this season, these three hatchlings were just down and outright nasty with LOTS of attitude!! Actually, just the way we like to see them!!!

Just couldn’t have handled them without gloves!!! The two males weighed in at 676 grams and 666 grams, with the larger female weighing in at 975 grams!
So we have the female named Stella - banded K over 24 with Yellow Tape, Wellington banded B over 10 with Red Tape, and finally little Lucifer - banded B over 11 with Blue tape - (guess who weighted 666 grams) :)

While up in the tower, I was able to get another close look at the resident adult male, and was able to reconfirm his band number Black 29 over Y

Mark Nash from the falcon site sent us some pictures of the banding last Monday, thanks to Mark!

I was told that one of the hatchlings was missing a claw but I don't see that reported anywhere on the falcon site, so we will have to wait and see if that proves correct.

Any eggs yet Scotto? I think there is one at the downtown nest already.
I don't know, there is a bunch of scaffolding that has been install since last time we had eggs. Hopefully it didn't scare the parents away.

We did have by this time last so it is worth a look.

Might have to start a new thread if there is.

Any news on the bridge nest yet? 4 laid downtown but none hatched yet. If they haven't hatched yet it makes me wonder if they will.
