Video of First Flight

Skygirlblue caught the first flight this morning and posted on YouTube. Enjoy!

John Oligschlaeger provided these pictures of banding which happened around 11:30 after the bird flew off the Admin Bldg and landed on a sill by one of the columns. I will post photos of the capture when I get home.

Thank you so much for the updates! It's hard to sit and watch and not be able to be there to see for ourselves, but thanks to you we can now keep track as well.. :) At our house we named her Turkey (as in a basting turkey, due to the way she'd rest a lot of times) Anywho, thank you for the updates and the pictures! Exciting times!

Awesome pictures!! Thank you so much for posting this great information. Love their little feet! I'm feeling happy for the first successful flight, and sad that they will be off to start their own lives and we can't follow. Beautiful :))

WONDERFUL photos. I was surprised at how Big the baby falcon is. They are really good size. You have given all of us such a unique opportunity to be involved through your blog, videos and reports. Thank you soooo.......much. RaNae
