Volunteers needed for the Falcon Watch

We recently confirmed that two Peregrine Falcon chicks have hatched at the Data Centre, at 875 Heron Rd. near Bronson. It’s too soon to tell with much accuracy how old they are, but they probably hatched around May 19, so they should fledge at the end of June.

That means the OFNC’s Ottawa Peregrine Falcon Watch will once again need volunteers to monitor the chicks as they take their first flights. Right now, I expect we’ll start dawn-to-dusk monitoring around June 24 and continue for about two weeks, or until the chicks are flying (and landing!) with confidence. We’ll confirm the exact dates and post a sign-up sheet and schedule online very soon.

Please email volunteer@falconwatch.ca if you would like to participate in the Falcon Watch.
