The three Peregrine Falcon chicks at the Sheraton Hamilton Hotel are close
to leaving the nest full time. Middle youngster Jackson "just stepped off
the ledge" on Friday and has been going from building to building. Older
brother Bold took his first flight on Sunday. Hunter, the youngest and 
only female, is testing her wings but is till at 'home' - so far. A big
bird - 1002 grams on banding day - Hunter will likely take her time.

Live webcam pictures of the nest and current news on the Peregrines can be
found at:  www.hamiltonnature.org/hamfalcam.html

Directions: Take Hwy. 403 into Hamilton, take the Main Street East exit,
follow Main Street downtown to Bay Street, turn left onto Bay and park in
the city lot at the corner of King Street. The Sheraton Hamilton is 50m
to the east on King Street.
