FrEYEday SkEYEday Free Fur All

 Furst some sad news -
6/4/2015  ::   Update from the Ledge!
This week, Falcon Watch and Rescue volunteers and staff have been continuously watching the three female fledglings making flights around the city. The white-banded female has been flying successfully today after spending yesterday on a small ledge near the Capitol. 

Unfortunately, late yesterday afternoon, the blue-banded female died after flying into a window. There are a lot of hazards for the young falcons at urban nest sites including window strikes.

The red-banded female took her first flight early this morning and landed on a low roof on the Rachel Carson Building. She attempted to make another flight but landed on the ground near the main entrance. The DEP staff and interns rescued, examined and released her onto the roof of the building.
Now assorted shots from the past week -

The High Biskhuit Puppies!

Happy FrEYEday SkEYEday EvFURRYone!
