Video:  Dad Steps In

Just after dawn, Dad arrives to give S2 a break. He settles down on the eggs and she leaves for almost two hours. When she returns, she takes off again!

Note that the infrared nest box camera changes from black and white to color.

Dad delivers breakfast and Mom feeds everyone. This video shows the first few minutes of breakfast, which lasted about ten minutes. The infrared cam is still on in the nest box, so the video is black and white.

Thank you birdofprey - one of my most favourite bird cams. They are missed - here's to next year.

Here's the report given by Alphons on BCAW.

S2 injured by shotgun pellets

Mortel, Gemert, July 29, 2011

The female peregrine falcon with ring S2 is found Wednesday, July 27, 2011 alive but injured in the municipality of Gemert. After reporting to the Vogelwerkgroep Gemert on Thursday, July 28, S2 was picked up. The bird is in good condition but has a seriously injured wing. An expert veterinarian was immediately contacted. X-rays showed the wing is broken at several places. On the x-ray was clearly visible a fragment of shotgun pellets. The Vogelwerkgroep Gemert has reported this to the local police.

Upcoming Saturday there will be an operation carried out to the injuries. Also further examination will be done. Experts indicate that the recovery and rehabilitation of fractures in the wings of birds of prey are difficult to treat. The VWG Gemert makes every effort to achieve a full recovery. But we must seriously take into account, S2 can never hunt again on her own. There is good collaboration between groups (Peregrine Falcons Netherlands and the Bird Protection Society of the Netherlands) and how they should act when a complete recovery is impossible.

If more is known about the treatment and recovery possibilities of S2 we will inform you as soon as possible via this website and the website of VWG Gemert.

What sad news, Patti.  My sympathy to all who watched this pair.  hug

I was watching when S2 first joined the family - the first (and only) falcon cam I've watched.  I'll send good wishes for her recovery - but knowing that she will never return to the nest is so very sad.  crying
