Some Fledge Watching 03 July


A nice breezy, not too hot Sunday afternoon to go to downtown Boise and “sneak a peak” at the falcons. Here we have Black (male) sitting on the 12th floor ledge of the One Capital Center. Good flight onto ledge from the North. It was great to meet Kathleen, one of the new Fledge Watchers. Welcome to the Team!

Then we have these other photos. Check these out and let us know what you think. I have had several questions as to if the following smudge marks are of the Boise falcons. Rest assured that all six of the Boise birds were located early this morning and all look healthy. Left Click to get a larger image. Keep Looking Up!

One Capital Center, 13th floor East side, just above Angel’s Bar and Grill. Look closely and check the morphology, especially of the wings.

One Capital Center, 13th floor East side, just above Angel’s Bar and Grill. Look closely and check the morphology, especially of the body shape and size.

And then still on the East side of the building, we see these dual smudges on the 6th floor. Hard to ID these. But it looks like one bird was chasing another bird, or we have a pair flying together, which seems unlikely that they would both collide with the window.

Can you ID this left-over meal?

An exciting time for the Fledge Watchers.
