Banding Day at Mississauga MEC May 17th 2022

May 18, 2022 - Mississauga - Executive Centre

Marion Nash Reports:

Thanks to Colliers International property management for again hosting the banding and for Sky Reach Window Washing for getting Mark Nash from CPF up to the nest to extract the chicks.

2 of the 4 eggs hatched and 2 boys banded.

Extracting the chicks went very well but just as she has done in the past Erin did not leave the nest and stood her ground. She was calm the entire time but as Mark Nash who went up on the swing stage to collect the chicks said if looks could kill. Erin struck out with her talons each time he grabbed a chick and on the last strike her talons poked through the glove and gave him something to remember her by.

The first chick banded weighed in at 590 grams at 21 days old band number C over 25 with blue tape he was named Mohamed the second another male weighed 535 grams band number C over 27 with Blue tape and named Ishaq.

I would also like to thank Security and maintenance staff who the chicks were named after and who have over the years have kept a close eye on the fledglings and helped us locate missing fledglings, conduct rescues and get us up to the roof to release then for a second chance. Without their help survival rates would be much lower.

Marion Nash Reports:

Mississauga MEC -Manuella flying well now

In a couple of days Manuella went from spending her nights in trees and bushes to meeting new friends on a condo tower to finally spending a safe night on the Morguard building.

Last night after Manuella unsuccessfully tried to snatch the kill from mom (last pic), she met up with Midnight on Morguard where Midnight intended to feed her baby; instead, Manuella bullied Midnight out of the kill and pushed her off the building. 45 minutes later, Midnight managed to grab the leftovers and fed herself. Manuella might be one to keep an eye on going forward.

Update on Manuela from Bruce at Mississauga MEC

June 12, 2021 - Mississauga - Executive Centre

Bruce Massey Reports:

She was a little Rocky at first. Fledged Wednesday in AM, didn’t see her at all. Winston got a sense that she was in the Trees @ Robert Speck Parkway & Shipp. Of course you know about Thursday with her being down on ground around 0700 Hrs. I found her having lunch with Midnight around Noon on the Mezzanine Level of CIBC.That Evening she made a couple of Flights, but spent night low somewhere in Vicinity of the Nest Building. On Friday, I found her on the W side of CIBC @ Mezzanine Level. I finally got to see her fly for the first time, and accompanied by Midnight, ended up again on the East Side of the CIBC Building. Around 6:00 PM, she flew up to another level rooftop of the Acenture Building. I was relieved by Winston. She spent the night on the “Twisted Sister’s” 2 1st Floor Balcony.
I found on rooftop level of the Morguard Building 13 floors up. Midnight has made a couple of passes, so she knows where she is.

Welcome CHRISSY (855g, 22 days, (sideways) L/2, red tape) and MANUELLA ( 885g, 22 days, (sideways) M/2 blue tape). I had the honour of holding these beauties during banding :) These photos should be in order except for the first one, which I captured on the webcam after the banding. It’s mom and her girls showing their bling. Wishing our girls safe and successful fledges Cheers, Lucie
