Fourscore update


Fourscore is still around the hack site, but now is starting to venture out a little more. On a couple of occasions, he has been seen high about Rock City thermaling with other birds. Yesterday, he was observed actively chasing a Chimney Swift, but his chase took him out of view around the mountain, so it is unknown whether or not he caught it. He continues to come back to the hack site to feed and we are interested to see how long he will stay in the area. It has now been two weeks since he was released and the previous falcons have left the area after about two weeks. However, he was released three weeks earlier than any of the other falcons, so he may stay in the area a little longer. We will see.

W are now in the midst of our Rock City Raptors programs. Come up to the "Rock" and catch a show Thursday through Sunday 11, 1, 3 with an additional show on Saturdays at 4:30 p.m. EDT. Thanks for checking...
