Around 2:45 I received a call from Bob, out of breath, telling me Primo had flown south on State Street and had disappeared somewhere around Social Hall / Harmons area - he asked if I had any 'eyes in the sky' in that location. That has to be one of the busiest corners in Utah! I quickly called people I know who work in buildings in that area, asking them to look out their windows in hopes to help find Primo. No luck.
Update as of 8:15pm tonight, Primo has popped up on a lamp on the top of the Alta Club building and was fed by a parent. He may just stay there for the night! Thank goodness its not a workday tomorrow. It will at least ease the traffic nightmare on that corner. And Boxer... Bob said he landed inside the observation deck on tall COB this evening. That can be a bad place for the birds to get themselves out of as there are all sorts of fences to keep humans from falling off. Its a rather large leap for a young bird to make. That is the spot where one of our young was found dead last year. One of our falcon volunteers went up in the elevator to check and Boxer made the leap and got out, which is terrific. So Primo is getting his wings, finally. He's still not flying very high and he's giving the crew a scare each time he leaves the Beehive but there is much more hope that he will eventually be flying as well as Boxer,.
p.s. If you leave comments on my blog, I'd love to know city, state you are reading from ~ thanks!
