Two Weeks Old, Fledge in Three Weeks

Hello to everyone, I've been out of circulation this past week ~ my son (who works on this show) was visiting from Los Angeles. It's been almost two years since he's been to SLC, so we hit a lot of his favorites spots including restaurants and independent movies.

I highly recommend Chef which is playing at the Broadway. Funny little movie with a great cast and its all about great food! If you've never tried The Bayou for Cajun, do it! The Jambalaya and Gumbo are amazing.

Dolcetti Gelato is another of our favorite stops. We LOVE the Coconut Sticky Rice. And if you haven't tried the Oh Mai Vietnamese sandwich shop, what a treat that was. The Honey Glazed Pork Banh Mi was GREAT. OK, go eat something!

On to Falcon news;  the Fledge Watch Team is getting ready and you are invited to help out!!

Bob says....

"So far, so good. About only one guarantee: we'll be busier than last year! Three "wrigglers" on hand, getting ready to go!" (by the way, the fourth egg will not hatch, in case anyone is still wondering)

So everyone/anyone is invited for the fun! Dates to Remember:
 
Tuesday, June 17 at 6:00 p.m. Watchable Wildlife Program field trip - Nesting SLC Peregrine Falcons ... watch the adult(s) and, perhaps, young-of-the-year from the ground, learn more about the SLC Peregrine Falcon Project, receive training in assisting the young earn their wings and participating as a member of the 2014 Team." See www.wildlife.utah.gov (Calendar) for further details.

The estimated dates of the 2014 version of Hell Week(s). Tuesday, June 24 through July ?  =  Bob will likely be on site beginning as early as Saturday, June 21, or Sunday, June 22.

BTW, its heating up. If you see the 'kids' looking like dead chickens, that is their way of keeping cool during the hottest part of the day.

Has anyone seen the other parent (I assume the female) today? I haven't seen any feedings today. The lone adult (the male?) keeps looking, and I've seen and heard the little guys lie around complain, as if they are hungry

Would it be possible to put another camera in for next year so we can see the north end of the box? Right now, only one of the babies is visible from the extended-view camera.

Liz - so happy that you're back! Please see my DWR Facebook comment/posting relative to notification (via postings on the DWR Facebook page and, or Liz's blog) that one, or more than one eyas goes out of view, that one, or more eyas comes back into view and, or anything that may look suspicious. Off, the top, the idea of addition of another camera leads to the thought of fatal entanglement by either young, or adult birds. Nonetheless, the idea (maybe even better positioning of those cameras now in use) has merit since it is not an understatement to conclude that when one, or more eyases go out of view that the result is something that I would call high anxiety!

Amen! I've had high anxiety all day worrying about the missing parent! And when the eyases go out of view - WHERE ARE THEY!?!?

Bob, I guess I missed all the excitement today! I was at work. But I think the wise thing is to publicly post your cell phone for all the worried watchers to call when there is an issue!
