Happy 4th of July. This Season’s Timeline.
Hope everyone had a great 4th of July. Sean and I had a real whip-banger! We spent the whole day in the dark basement of our building, cleaning out our storage locker! Wooooo! Stop it with the HOLIDAY FUN!!
Seriously, though, it is nice to heave the junk. We have a massive pile of stuff waiting to go to Goodwill and have much more room to gather more stuff.
First off, here’s a short version of the MCC Peregrines 2006 year:
- Day 1 (May 6): The chicks probably hatched around this date.
- Day 35 (June 9): The male followed by two females jump up onto the ledge for the first time.
- Day 37 (June 11): All four chicks are on the ledge.
- Day 38 (June 12): The male fledges.
- Day 40 (June 14): The male grounds, is picked up by animal control and taken to a raptor rehab. Mary doesn’t find out until the 26th.
- Day 42 (June 16): Two females (Wendy and Beth) fledge, two go down, two are re-released as they are unharmed in the grounding.
- Day 43 (June 17): The last female (Lesley) fledges.
- Day 44 (June 18): Lesley grounds and in recovered.
- Day 45 (June 19): Lesley is re-released as she was unharmed in the grounding. Beth grounds again and is taken to raptor rehab.
- June 26: Mary transfers the last male to a rehab center closer to her house. He is just fine and will soon be released.
- July 4: Beth is euthanized.
