Merlin and Jays at Millennium Park

The other day, Mary Ellen was down at Millennium Park in West Roxbury, when she saw a merlin and some blue jays. And then more jays. Eventually, about eight of the screaming birds surrounded the raptor and chased it away. And then they followed it and chased it away again. And again. Read more.

Egret stretches its neck at Millennium Park

Mary Ellen continues her exploration of bird life along the Charles River and Sawmill Brook at Millennium Park in West Roxbury. Yesterday, she spotted a pretzel bird, um, egret.

She also reports there's a family of peregrine falcons enjoying the towers along the road down to the canoe launch at the park: Read more.

Missing falcon

Missing Dogs Massachusetts is a Facebook page that's normally just what it sounds like. So a posting today is a little unusual, but, then, there aren't many places to look for a missing falcon:

BOLO: Beloved family falcon is missing, last seen Plum Island area. She is very friendly and social and will likely seek out humans by landing on a car or a house, and squawk at them. Still has tether on.

The birds, that is, not the football team. WBUR reports they love our downtown towers.

Peregrine falcon at Deer Island

Kristin MacDougall posted a photo of one of two peregrine-falcon chicks born on Deer Island recently.

She reports falcons have lived high atop the sewage-treatment plant's "digesters" (the giant egg things) for awhile, but this is the first time any have hatched there.

Fisheries and Wildlife experts banded the two females (named Taylor and Julia) today.
