Well what I suspected actually happened! here is an update...

It was Thompson that flew not Gore! see update below.

Thursday Afternoon June 16, 2011 - Falconwatch Coordinator Alexis Jordan reports: Early this afternoon the chick on the Thomson building tried to fly back up to the Sheraton to get some of the food that Madame X had carried past him a minute before. Try as he might, he just couldn't make it up to the nest ledge, so he turned and glided down to the Copps Coliseum plaza where we were able to rescue him. On arrival at our rehabitilation facility for a check up it was determined that: a) The chick is in very good health, lean without a lot of muscle because he hasn't flown much yet, and b) It is Thomson, not Gore as previously thought. The confusion was a result of the colour bands being smaller and not as distinctive as those used last year. The photo of the rescue at left is courtesy of Morgan Hapeman, a UPS pilot and volunteer at Raptor Rehabilitation of Kentucky Inc. (RROKI) who happened to be staying at the Sheraton between flights.

He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.
