He'd let me know the Peregrines had two chicks this year (one male and one female) and both were banded by Fish and Wild Life on 5.22. I'd be thrilled with not only the update but the pictures as well as they were taken by Emily Eaton so it's nice to know she's still involved as I know her love for these birds. The photo above is of the female chick.

And this photo above is of the female adult!!! Come to find out she was able to get rid of her leg band some how and Tom French was able to capture her and get her rebanded! How he did it is beyond me as I've seen her in action but he did and she is now sporting a brand spanking new leg band courtesy of Tom who is holding her in the picture above.
I can't tell you how thrilled I am that I don't have to play the guessing game this year but do wonder how come there were only two. Don't know if egg production lessons the older the Peregrines get as the Mrs is getting up there in age but it does lead me to wonder.
Take care all.
