Peregrine = Pilgrim = Wanderer

Well, Charlie the wanderer has been found. Great news! More details tomorrow. In the meantime, I wanted to feature a French blog about Peregrines that belongs to a reader, A. Yassin who left a comment asking me if banding was the same as ringing, their term for IDing the falcons. Please take a stop by his blog, these photos make mine look ridiculous. They are incredible. Peregrine in French is Pelerins. Depending on your browser, there is a translate button at the top of the page that changes it all to English. Amazing. Well done, Yassin!

Spent all day today at Temple Square. Was able to see all babies and parents. Charlie made a spectacular flight today. I'm impressed how well
Bobbi is doing (being the youngest). Saw Amelia
sitting in the sun. Was hoping for some shade for all kids today. Sally seems ok after her slumber party at Bob's house. Thanks Liz and know we love you ,your blog and great pictures. We've watched these beauties since they were hatched.
Also, loved the John Denver words. So appropriate!!
