2nd Eyass Update Today


19June2013_2d_Fledge-Watch_Parent-Flight

There was a short break in the weather – about 2 hours. So I decided to go downtown and look for the falcons. There appears to be at least one that is “ready to go”. She was on the ledge of the very top of the One Cap Building doing some serious wing stretching ….. In the wind! It was great, too, to talk to the “people on the street” about what was going on. I did pass out some of the flyers listed earlier to some of the businesses and probably 25 or so cards. Good to talk to Thinh Do, the maintenance person at One Cap Center.
The photo here shows one of the parents calling to one of the eyasses on the very top of the building. The rest of these photos are the interactions of the falcons and the “coaxing” of the parents to have the youngsters fly. The eyass that is in these photos will, I believe, be flying within 24 hours, if not already while I am writing this.
Enjoy these photos. The excitement is about to begin, if it has not already started. Left-Click to see the photos enlarged and be sure to VOTE above. Keep Looking Up!

Robin took this photo from IBeam. You can just make out the birds as "black spots". Storms over the mountains.
