Three weeks ago, we saw this chick

For a couple of weeks we knew that she would be an only child, though no-one knows why the other three eggs didn't hatch.
Earlier today, the chick was picked up and weighed and banded and named.

At 953grams, she is a big youngster. She has a red band on her right leg for easy identification. 

Meet Ancaster, named for the city (now amalgamated with Hamilton) that was settled in 1792. I'm not certain, but I believe she is the 48th hatched peregrine from the Sheraton Hotel.


Glad you stopped by. For anyone who stumbled here, don't be shy to say 'hi' and let me know you've visited!
