Heading in to September

Hi Folks,

Wow, heading in to September already and there are still a few spotty sightings of Bobbie, and maybe Charlie, downtown. Bob saw a juvenile last weekend but was unable to spot a band on it so possibly it wasn't one of our young of the year.

Just this past Friday evening I stopped downtown and saw both adults, the male on the north face of Zion's Bank and the female on the north face of Gateway West building which is on the SW corner of Main and S. Temple. She was calling.

It appears the falcon cams have been turned off as well.

So I am sad to say, this may be my last post of 2011. We are putting together an email list for next year's fledge watch team. If you have not been receiving emails but would like to be a part of the fun next year, please send me a note and I will add you to the list. Thanks for all the support, emails, tweets and boots on the ground this year. See you next year!

Hi Liz- I was disappointed when they shut down the web cam, but knew it had to be. I had seen both parents almost every morning around 6-7 and still enjoyed seeing them. I sure appreciate all of your emails, tweets and above all keeping all of us updated on the sweet birds. Was broken hearted about Sally and Amelia, as everyone else was, I'm sure.It was quite a summer for my daughter Michelle and I.
We really enjoyed the whole experience watching the babies hatch and fledge. I have always had a soft spot in my heart for Bobbie., as she was the runt., and always trying to push through the other birds to the front row to be fed. I hope she and Bobbie prevail. Also Bob, nice meeting you and visiting with you on various nights watching the birds fly. Have a great winter season and again thanks for all of your attention to these wonderful creatures. Again, Thank you Liz for your wonderful Blogspot.
