Peregrine AM -373 - Geskiedenis


Peregrine

(AM-373: dp. 890; 1. 221'1 "; b. 32'2"; dr. 10'9 "; s. 18 k .;
kpl. 117; a. 1 3 ", 2 40 mm; cl. Auk)

Peregrine (AM-373) is neergelê deur die Savannah Machine and Foundry Co., Savannah, Gal, 24 Oktober 1944; gelanseer 17 Februarie 1945; geborg deur mev Ethel K. Adams; en in opdrag van 27 September 1945, het komm. Carl R. Cunningham, Jr. in bevel.

Nadat hy by die Charleston Navy Yard, Charleston en shakedown in Chesapeake Bay ingeskakel het, het Peregrine 'n sehooi -skip geword by die Naval Mine Warfare Sehool, Yorktown.

Van 1945 tot 1951 het sy daaglikse mynevee-operasies uitgevoer in Yorktown, Va., Charleston, SC en Norfolk, Va. Sy het ook toetse uitgevoer op anti-roll-toerusting en ander eksperimentele toetse.

Peregrine was die grootste deel van die jare van 1951 tot 1955 besig om uit Norfolk te reis met cruises so ver suid as Balboa, Canal Zone en so ver noord as Argentia, Newfoundland. Op 7 Februarie 1955 word sy MSF-373. Op 9 September 1955 vertrek sy uit Key West, Florida, na Port Lysutey, Noord -Afrika. Sy is van Casablanea af geopereer en het in Gibraltar geëilig voordat sy na Bermuda en Key West, Fla.

Van 1955 tot 1960 werk Peregrine uit Key West, Florida, so ver suid as Guantanamobaai, Kuba en Cuidad Trujillo, Dominikaanse Republiek, en so ver noord as New York. Op 24 Junie vertrek Peregrine vir spesiale operasies naby St. Johns Harbour, New Brunswiek, Kanada.

Peregrine vertrek weer op 31 Julie 1361 uit die Key West -omgewing onderweg na Argentia, Newfoundland, en keer terug op 5 Oktober. Gedurende November 1962, terwyl hy onder ComServLant Peregrine gedien het, het Orford tydens patrollie buite Havana, Kuba, tydens die ~ uban -krisis begelei.

Gedurende 1963 was Peregrine betrokke by 'n karteringprojek van Bermuda na Argentia, Newfoundland en alifax, Nova Seotia, waartydens sy haar tuiste vir vyf maande nie gesien het nie. Op 25 Februarie 1964 is die aanwysing van die skip verander van Experimental Fleet Mine Sweeper (EMSF373) na general auxiliary (AG-176). Haar nuwe aanwyser weerspieël haar operasionele taak om voltyds te toets en te evalueer van eksperimentele toerusting voordat die toerusting in ander skepe van die vloot opgeneem word. In Februarie 1965 vertrek Peregrine uit Key West vir 'n vaart na die Suid -Atlantiese Oseaan na onafhanklike projekbedrywighede. Na 'n terugkeer na Key West het Peregrine op 20 Mei Rosyth, Seotland, binnegekom. Op 27 Mei het Peregrine haar 'Blue Nose' gekry toe sy oor die Aretie Cirele kom. Die grootste deel van die res van die jaar het Peregrine deelgeneem aan uitgebreide oseanografiese operasies in die Noorse See. Sy besoek Bremerhaven, Duitsland, 21-25 Oktober, en keer terug na Key West 10 November.

Vroeg in 1966 het Peregrine deelgeneem aan die toets van 'n eksperimentele oseanografiese opnamemetode in Bermuda -bedieningsgebiede. Aan die einde van 1966 is Peregrine op spesiale operasies na die Noord -Atlantiese Oseaan ontplooi, wat uit Argentia, Newfoundland, bedryf is.

Op 1 Maart 1967 is Peregrine van Key West aan die gang vir die Panamakanaal wat sy op S-6 Maart oorgesteek het, en bereik haar nuwe tuiste van San Francisco op 16 Maart. Sy het San Francisco 25 Mnreh verdryf en Pearl Harbor 1 Apri1 bereik. Sy vertrek 4 April na Yokosuka, Japan, waar sy projekbedrywighede uitvoer. September en Oktober is bestee aan operasies uit Midway. Na verdere operasies uit Hawaii, het die skip 28 November na San Francisco teruggekeer.

Peregrine word op 31 Januarie 1969 in gebruik geneem. Sy is op 1 Februarie 1969 uit die vlootlys geslaan.

Nuus uit die nestkas - 2021

17 Junie - Vanoggend kon ons sien dat die volwassenes, Hattie en Orton, en drie van die vier jongelinge hoog bo die Rochester -kampus in die middestad vlieg. Die jonges word nou meer vaardig met hul vliegvaardighede, jaag mekaar en hul ouers en probeer om hul eerste prooi te vang. Dit sal nog 'n paar weke duur voordat die jong kinders hul eie maaltye kan opdoen, maar die volwassenes is altyd naby en kyk en sorg vir hulle. Die beste tyd om hulle op die kamera te sien, is vroegoggend en later namiddag wanneer hulle in die nagkas of in die nesbak slaap. Hier kan u vanoggend vroeg een van die jonges bo -op die neskas sien.

14 Junie - Al vier die vlugte was gisteraand terug by die neskas, soos gesien op hierdie foto wat om 20:49 geneem is. Die bome het gewoonlik elke dag teen sonop die nestkas verlaat. Pippin en Hailey spandeer die meeste tyd in die nag in die boks, waar hulle veilig voel.

9 Junie - Hierdie foto is om 21:00 geneem. en wys hoe al vier die jonges goed vaar - drie in die boks en een aan die bokant, en geniet die uitsig!

8 Junie - Soos u op hierdie foto kan sien, alhoewel die kuikens gevlieg het, is hulle nog steeds redelik naby die nestkas. Let op die voëls heel links.

8 Junie - Hailey het vroegoggend, voor 05:30, vroeg gevlug en Avalon as die enigste insittende in die neskas gelaat (sien foto). Avalon het gevolg en kort ná 07:30 gevlug. As jy die tweede foto noukeurig bekyk, sien jy een van die jongelinge op die dak van die nestkas. Dit is heel waarskynlik dat Hailey en Avalon, ten minste 'n rukkie, naby bly.

7 Junie - Al vier kuikens is terug in die nestkas (teen 16:00). Dink jy die kuikens kyk almal na dieselfde ding? Dit kan wees dat hulle na een van hul ouers kyk, 'n prooi, 'n vlinder of 'n ander insek. Alles is op hierdie stadium vir hulle interessant.

7 Junie - Dit gaan goed met al vier die kuikens. Hierdie foto, omstreeks 07:00, wys Pippin op die dak van die nestkas, terwyl Altezza, Hailey en Avalon tyd op die dek deurbring. Die wyfies het nog nie probeer vlug nie.

4 Junie - Hierdie foto toon dat Pippin teruggekeer het na die nestkas en albei tyd bestee het in en op dit trek duidelik die aandag van een van sy susters.

4 Junie - Ons het gevlieg! Altezza, een van die kuikens, het vandag om 05:22 gevlug (sien hieronder), kort daarna gevolg deur die ander mannetjie, Pippin. Die voëls is waarskynlik baie naby die neskas; u kan een of albei op een van die strukture agter die boks sien sit. Die kuikens, Hailey en Avalon, bly in die neskas, maar kan enige dag vlug.

Sommige kykers is bekommerd oor die verandering in voedingsgewoontes wat onlangs opgemerk is. Orton en Hattie het voortgegaan om kos na die nestkas te bring, maar laat dit nou net val sodat die kuikens kan sukkel en eet. Dit is 'n natuurlike en belangrike deel van wat die kuikens moet leer; hulle hoef nie meer direk deur die volwassenes gevoer te word nie. Roofvoëls verbruik, net soos hierdie slakvalke, baie van die water wat hulle nodig het deur die voedsel wat hulle eet. Die kuikens is goed gevoed sedert hulle uitgebroei het, so hulle is ook goed gehidreer.

1 Junie - Kyk hoe die kuikens binne 'n paar dae gegroei en verander het. Hier word hulle op die dek van die nestkas vertoon, deur die lug gesoek en wag om gevoed te word. Hulle het nog net 'n paar knolle van hul wit donsvere wat nog sigbaar is. Die temperature bereik die boonste 80's en 90's in Rochester soos die week aangaan, sodat u die kuikens kan sien dat hulle meer oopmond asemhaal. Ons weet dat dit kommerwekkend is om te sien, maar dit gaan eintlik goed met hulle. Die kuikens kan ook terugtrek na die skaduwee van die boks as hulle te warm word. Dit is nog 'n rede waarom die nesbakke nooit weswaarts gerig is nie; ons wil nie hê dat die voëls oormatige son moet kry sonder dat hulle kan terugtrek nie.

26 Mei - Alles in 'n ry en gereed vir hul foto -opname! Foto geneem omstreeks 14:00 CDT.

26 Mei - Hierdie vier kuikens word groter en gewaagder, spandeer al hoe meer tyd op die nestkasdek en klap selfs met hul vlerke. Hulle is nou byna 50% bruin van kleur, aangesien hul donsige pluis plek maak vir vere.

Hierdie foto bied 'n beter blik op die bruin kleur van die vere. Let op die skaduwee van 'n volwasse slagting aan die linkerkant.

24 Mei - Dit is 'n week na die band, en die vier kuikens groei steeds en verander in voorkoms. Hulle waag ook op die dek van die nestkas en word meer nuuskierig oor die wêreld buite hul onmiddellike omgewing.

17 Mei - Dit was 'n bedrywige oggend vir die slakvalkfamilie by Mayo Clinic in Rochester.

Omstreeks 10:00 is die vier kuikens uit die neskas bo -op die Mayo -gebou verwyder en na 'n konferensiekamer gebring vir 'n fisiese ondersoek, banding en naamgewing. Jackie Fallon, Midwest Peregrine Society, het die kuikens saamgebind en gesê dat al vier gesond is en goed gaan. Die name van die kuikens is uit meer as 800 ingedien, en ons is bly om hul name aan te kondig: wyfies Hailey en Avalon mans Altezza en Pippie.

Elke kuiken het 'n federale band op sy regterbeen en 'n gekleurde identifikasieband op sy linkerbeen gekry. Die gekleurde bande is makliker om te lees as die federale bande, dus dit is die beste om voëls op 'n afstand te identifiseer. Die bandinligting vir die vier kuikens is soos volg: Hailey (vroulik) - swart oor blou, band 23/X Altezza (manlik) - swart oor blou, band 77/D Avalon (vroulik) - swart oor blou, band 24/X Pippie (manlik) - swart oor blou, band 78/D. Hierdie inligting word saam met die name van die kuikens, banddatum en ander dokumentasie in die databasis van die Midwest Peregrine Society ingevoer.

Hattie en Orton het die gebied naby die neskas (onder) aggressief verdedig toe die kuikens verwyder is en later teruggekeer is. Spanlede met besems het die ander beskerm teen moontlike aanval deur die vasberade ouers.

13 Mei - Hierdie foto wys hoe ten minste een van hulle gewoonlik naby ons is, selfs al sien ons nie die volwassenes op die kamera nie. Sien u die vere van die volwassene aan die linkerkant van die foto? Die volwassene sit op die arm van die kamera en hou die jongmense in die neskas dop.

10 Mei - 'n Week weg van ons banding/name-geleentheid vir hierdie vier vinnig groeiende jongmense! Ons hoop dat u op 17 Mei om 10:00 CDT via Facebook Live kan inskakel. Ons sal ook later die dag 'n opname van die gebeurtenis op hierdie webwerf plaas.

6 Mei - Vier honger kuikens tydens voeding, 15:00 CDT.

4 Mei - Hier is ons valkfamilie, om 10:07 uur CDT.

3 Mei - Voertyd om 17:45 CDT!

3 Mei - Om 09:00 CDT geneem, wys hierdie foto die vier kuikens wat naby die middel van die neskas vasgekuipel het. Die buitentemperatuur is 55 grade.

3 Mei - Hierdie foto, wat op 1 Mei geneem is, toon 'n swart "merk" op die kop van een van die kuikens. Later waarnemings het getoon dat 'n ander kuiken 'n soortgelyke merk het. Ons is nie seker wat dit is nie, dit kan puin wees. Dit lyk egter asof dit goed gaan met al vier die kuikens, en die kuikie wat laas uitgebroei het, haal sy broers en susters in groei.

30 April - Op die eerste foto hieronder, wat vanoggend geneem is, beskadig Hatttie die kuikens van die son se hitte. Alhoewel die temperatuur eers in die vyftigerjare is, is die direkte son warm en kan die kuikens nie op hierdie stadium termoreguleer nie, dus doen die volwassenes dit vir hulle.

Hierdie foto van voedingstyd vandag wys hoe vinnig die kuikens groei. Hulle is nou dubbel hul luikgrootte!

28 April - Prettige gesinsfoto van Orton (agter) en Hattie, wat die kuikens broei.

27 April - 14:15 nm. - Hierdie foto wys die vier kuikens wat na die voorkant van die neskas gehul het. Die temperatuur is 53 grade, sodat hulle gemaklik is vir 'n paar minute op hul eie. Oomblikke later kom Hattie terug.

27 April - Die vierde eier het vanoggend uitgebroei, iewers tussen 6:40 en 9:00.

Die onderstaande foto toon hoe Hattie al vier kuikens broei. Die nuwelinge word deur die volwassenes gebroei en elke 2-3 uur gevoer. Afhangende van die weer, kan die kuikens nog nie 'n paar dae op hul eie warm bly nie. Moenie skrik as die ouers hul kuikens nie 'n minuut of twee bedek as die weer saamwerk nie. Wat gebeur met die eierdoppe? Hattie en Orton sal hulle uit die nestkas verwyder.

26 April - Drie van die kuikens het gister uitgebroei. Vanaf 07:00 vandag, bly een eier oor en behoort dit vandag uit te broei. Orton doen 'n uitstekende taak om prooi by die nestkas te lewer sodat Hattie die kuikens kan voer. Beide volwassenes broei die kuikens tussen die voer.

25 April - Ons het 'n luik! Teen 06:00 het een van die kuikens heeltemal uitgebroei en twee het gepik ('n klein gaatjie in die dop gebreek) en die twee behoort vandag uit te broei. Op die onderstaande foto kan u 'n stuk eierdop aan die voorkant van die neskas sien.

Die eerste foto hieronder wys hoe Orton kos na die neskas bring. Dit is nou sy taak om genoeg kos na die nestkas te bring, en Hattie se taak om die kuikens te voer.

Op hierdie foto kan jy duidelik sien hoe die eiers pik - die eerste breuke in die dop terwyl die kuikens begin uitbroei - en die eerste kuiken wat reeds opgeduik het. Let op die gebreekte stuk eierdop wat na die voorkant van die boks beweeg het.

14 April - Die weer in Rochester was hierdie week koud. Die temperatuur om 11:30 is slegs 33 grade. Maar Hattie en Orton bly getrou aan die broei van hul vier eiers. Ons verwag dat die luik tussen 26 en 27 April sal begin.

8 April - Die onderstaande foto, wat omstreeks 07:30 geneem is, toon aan dat Orton aan die beurt kom om die eier te broei en seker te maak dat hy dit fyn met sy snawel draai.

6 April - Kykers het vandag sy kommer uitgespreek nadat hulle opgemerk het dat Hattie vanoggend uit die nesbak weg is. Die personeel van Mayo Clinic Facilities moes op die dak wees om probleme met die lugversorgingseenheid op die agtergrond reg te stel. Hattie bly naby en hou 'n wakende oog op die situtasie. Ons hou die toneel dop en ons verwag geen negatiewe impak op die koppeling van eiers nie.

31 Maart - Hier is 'n wonderlike foto wat die 'inkubasie -uitruil' toon. Dis Hattie se beurt vir 'n blaaskans, so Orton sal 'n rukkie in die nestkas oorneem.

26 Maart - Die oggendson stroom in die nestkas waar Hattie vier eiers broei. As alles goed gaan, kan ons verwag dat dit binne ongeveer 31 dae uitbroei.

24 Maart - Hattie en Orton sorg nou vir vier eiers in die neskas. Hierdie foto is omstreeks 13:30 geneem. Dit word vaag weens reën in die Rochester -omgewing.

22 Maart - Hierdie foto, wat om 09:00 geneem is, toon drie eiers in die neskas.

19 Maart - Hattie het vanoggend omstreeks 10:30 haar tweede eier gelê. Nou kan ons sien dat Hattie en Orton om die beurt na die eiers in die nestkas kyk, maar daar sal tye wees dat nie een van die voëls op die eiers sit nie. Moenie bekommerd wees nie, Hattie sal begin om die eiers te broei nadat sy haar laaste eier gelê het. Hierdie tydsberekening help dat alle eiers ongeveer dieselfde tyd ontwikkel om binne ongeveer vyf weke uit te kom.

16 Maart - Ons het ons eerste eier! Dit is die vroegste datum waarop peregrines by Mayo eiers gehad het.

15 Maart - Hattie het 'n geruime tyd in die nestkas deurgebring tydens die sneeustorm wat deur Rochester en die omliggende gebied getrek het.

12 Maart - Hierdie foto wys Hattie en Orton in die nestkas.

12 Maart - Kykers het moontlik vroeër die week 'n onderonsie tussen Hattie en 'n ongeïdentifiseerde wyfie waargeneem. Die foto (regs onder), wat vandag omstreeks 10:00 geneem is, wys Hattie by die neskas. Weereens verdedig sy die gebied vir die sesde agtereenvolgende jaar suksesvol.

3 Maart - 'N Territoriale geveg is op 3 Maart omstreeks 11:00 opgemerk.' N Volbandige volwasse wyfie het om Orton se aandag geveg. Hattie verdra nie die teenwoordigheid van 'n ander vrou nie en het haar vinnig 'n begeleier uit die omgewing gegee. Territoriale gevegte kom hierdie tyd van die jaar redelik gereeld voor terwyl trekvoëls deur die gebied kom.

23 Februarie - Orton werk aan 'n skraap - 'n verdieping in die gruis - in die neskas. Peregrines gebruik 'n skraap as 'n nes vir eiers.

22 Februarie - Vanaf 19/02/21 het Jackie Fallon geïdentifiseer dat Hattie en Orton die besit van die Mayo -gebied behou. Hierdie tyd van die jaar kan daar heelwat veranderinge in besetting plaasvind, terwyl die inwonende voëls die boks aktief verdedig.


Die lewendige stroom van die Providence Peregrine

U het gesien hoe die Providence Peregrines in 2021 uitbroei en groei. En nou het hulle begin vlug! Ons hoop dat u sal aanhou kyk terwyl hulle vlug in die stad Providence, RI, en dit sal oorweeg om die webcam te ondersteun, 'n venster in die natuur van hierdie ongelooflike voëls.

U bydraes is so belangrik. Oorweeg dit om vandag nog te skenk.

U skenking hou die kamera elke jaar regdeur die broeiseisoen.

DANKIE! Party for the Peregrines was 'n groot sukses - en soveel pret.

Teken in om Providence Peregrine -opdaterings en die maandelikse Audubon eWing -nuusbrief te ontvang.

Opdaterings uit die Nest Box

Tydstempels is die tyd van die opdatering, nie die tyd van die gebeurtenis nie.

Die vierde jongeling het gevlug! Kykers het vanoggend gekyk hoe drie jongmense weer op die dak bymekaarkom (prentjie wat deur 'n kyker ingestuur is - dankie!) Alhoewel die jonges kortliks na hierdie bekende plek kan terugkeer, sal hulle dit in die komende dae al hoe minder doen terwyl hulle verken meer van hul ouers se gebied. Die neskas (en voëlneste in die algemeen) is streng kwekerye.

Dit is altyd bittersoet om te sien hoe hulle gaan! Ons sal die kamera die volgende dag of twee die kamera afskakel vir die seisoen. Dankie aan almal wat ingeskakel het vir die 2021 -seisoen, hul waarnemings en foto's gestuur het, geskenk het ter ondersteuning van die regstreekse stroom en hierdie regstreekse stroom met vriende en familie gedeel het! U ondersteuning, in alle vorme, word opreg waardeer.

As u dit nog nie gedoen het nie, teken aan vir die e -posse van Audubon sodat u nie die amptelike aankondiging van die broeiseisoen van die Providence Peregrine in 2022 sal misloop nie, en oorweeg dit om 'n skenking te maak om volgende jaar die lewendige stroom terug te bring!

Ons sal voortgaan om enige opdaterings of waarnemings hier te plaas namate die jeugdiges hul vlugvaardighede oefen en leer hoe om te jag gedurende Julie. Begin Augustus moedig die ouers hul kleintjies aan om uit te trek en hul eie gebied te vind. Peregrine Valcons is 'n treksoort en is aangeteken om tot ongeveer 8000 myl te trek. Baie voëls sal egter die hele jaar in hul stedelike gebied bly weens die oorvloed voedsel op hierdie plekke (naamlik duiwe.)

Nog 'n nota oor die vierde, "vermiste" jongeling:

Ons kon op hierdie stadium niks bevestig nie, want die voël was nie gereed om te vlieg nie en het, as hy lewe, net buite sig gewees en op 'n ander dak gekuier (hulle slaag dikwels daarin om op hierdie ouderdom suksesvol te gly).

Die volgende paar dae sal dus sprekend wees in terme van die bevestiging van sy status - dit is wanneer die jonges in die stad sal begin vlieg.

Peter Green van Providence Raptors, saam met ander ywerige kykers/voëlkykers in die sentrum van Providence, is ons oë op die jeugdiges sodra hulle die gebou verlaat. As die vierde jeugdige in die volgende paar dae nie rondvlieg nie, is dit veilig om te sê dat hy dit nie reggekry het nie. Dit is beslis hartseer, maar dit is die rede waarom Peregrine Valcons gemiddeld drie tot vier eiers lê, teenoor net een of twee.

Ons sal absoluut enige opdaterings op die webwerf plaas! Maar, enige opdatering wat sy status bevestig, sal minstens 'n paar dae nie beskikbaar wees nie.

'' 'N Slegte perkevalk was vanoggend van die straat af sigbaar', het Peter Green gesê Providence Raptors. Peter is ons 'oë' in die sentrum van Providence, sodra die jongelinge opgestyg het. Volg sy bladsy, Providence Raptors, op Facebook, Instagram en Twitter vir nog goeie opnames en opdaterings oor die Providence Peregrines (en meer!)

Op styg! Hierdie skermopname is ingestuur deur 'n kyker met die naam Willy - dankie!

Net een van die jongste bly oor met die oog op die webkamera. Hou aan kyk sodat jy nie sy eerste vlug misloop nie! Sodra die laaste jongmense begin, sal hulle nie terugkeer nie, en ons sal die regstreekse stroom vir die 2021 -seisoen beëindig.

'N Eersteling het vandag omstreeks 15:30 hul eerste vlug geneem!

Selfs nadat hul kleintjies hul eerste vlugte geneem het, sal die ouers die volgende paar weke prooi- en vlieglesse aanbied. As 'n voël eers 'n nes verlaat het, kom hy gewoonlik nie terug nie, want neste is net kwekerye, nie 'huise' nie.

Kykervraag: hoe vind die ouer peregrines hul jong kinders sodra hulle vlug?
Antwoord: Die jeugdiges bly in die gesin se gebied terwyl hulle nog leer, so hulle is nooit ver nie. Die ouers gebruik dieselfde ongelooflike vaardighede wat hulle vir jagdoeleindes het om hul kleintjies by te hou - hul skerp sig en gehoor.

Wil u kyk na die 'vlieglesse' wat hierdie maand sal plaasvind? U kan hulle self besoek: die Providence Place Mall is naby, wat dit 'n wonderlike plek maak om te parkeer (dit is die eerste twee uur gratis.) Moenie u verkyker vergeet nie!

Die vierde oog het vanoggend omstreeks 06:30 gevlieg (danksy 'n kyker vir die kiekie!)

Ons het nog nie die nuwelinge wat geval het, gesien nie. Ons sal u hier op hoogte hou met enige inligting.

Hul eerste vlugte sal te eniger tyd plaasvind. U sal agterkom dat die jongelinge baie tyd spandeer om met hul vlerke te klap - dit is beide om hul spiere te versterk en om gewoond te raak aan die winderige lug onder hul vlerke. Op hierdie punt is die jongelinge volledig ontwikkel - behalwe 'n paar oorvere.

Die volgende noemenswaardige voorkomsverandering sal plaasvind wanneer hulle 'n jaar oud is en hul volwasse vere hul jong verekleed vervang deur 'n proses wat 'rui' genoem word. From All About Birds: "Volwassenes is blougrys aan die bokant, onderkant en 'n donker kop met dik bakke. Jeugdiges is swaar gemerk, met vertikale strepe in plaas van horisontale balke op die bors. Ten spyte van aansienlike ouderdomsverwante en geografiese variasie is 'n stewige, versperde voorkoms bly oor. "

Die derde oog het gevlieg en is tans op die dak se dak! Die oorblywende nesteling kyk met groot belangstelling na sy jong broers en kyk met groot belangstelling (roeping en baie gretige vleuels.)

'N Paar kykers het hul kommer uitgespreek oor die valk op die onderste rand. Hy is heel waarskynlik nog nie vol vertroue om tussen die randjies op en af ​​te spring nie. Hy sal vinnig die krag en selfvertroue daarvoor kry - dit is alles deel van die leer- en groeiproses! Soos ons in vorige opdaterings gesê het, is dit nie ongewoon dat ouers op hierdie stadium voedsel weerhou nie, as 'n manier om hul ontwikkeling aan te moedig.

Ons beste raaiskoot oor hoekom hy so van hierdie onderste rand hou? Hierdie plek kan 'n gevoel van veiligheid bied, eerder as om heeltemal buite te wees. Die klein muur wat die hoër rand uitmaak, sorg vir een rigting minder waaruit 'n roofdier kan kom. As ons van roofdiere praat, het Peregrine Valcons wel 'n paar, soos arende, Uiluile en ander Peregrines!

Een van die jongelinge het omstreeks 16:30 sy voet verloor terwyl hy op die randjie was. Ons het hom nog nooit op die grond of elders gesien nie, maar ons hoop dat hy daarin kon slaag om na 'n ander dak naby of op 'n onderste rand van hierdie gebou te gly. Ons hou u op hoogte as daar 'n waarneming is!

Vanoggend het die eerste en tweede nestelinge die nestkas verlaat! Dit lyk asof die eerste en derde broeigoed die eerste was. Om 09:40 was al vier kortliks weer in die kykraamwerk, dus is dit veilig om te sê dat alhoewel hierdie twee nou as 'jong' beskou word, hulle nog nie hul eerste vlugte geneem het toe dit geskryf is nie. Ons het die kamera 'n bietjie uitgezoom, sodat die dak nou grootliks sigbaar is, maar dit hang dikwels agter die nestkas buite sig.

Vlieg is 'n baie gevaarlike tyd. Omdat die nestkas so hoog is, kan die valke wat van hierdie plek af vlug, maklik van hierdie dak af gly na die baie onderste dakke van geboue daaronder. Sodra hulle die dak verlaat, neem dit 'n paar dae om genoeg vliegkoördinasie en sterkte op te bou om weer op hierdie hoogte te kom.

Die ouers kan binne die volgende paar dae ophou om die nessies te voed om hulle aan te moedig om hul eerste vlugte te neem.

Vanoggend het die eerste en tweede nes die nestkas verlaat! Dit lyk asof die eerste en derde broeigoed die eerste was.

Hulle word so vinnig groot! Hier is 'n terugblik op banding day net meer as twee weke gelede!

Plus, kyk na hierdie video van die drie oudste voëls wat op die rand van die neskas kom.

Die eerste oog wat uitbroei, is nou 35 dae oud. Soms, alhoewel selde, sal die nestelinge op hierdie ouderdom hul eerste vlug neem. Hy (en die ander) lyk beslis gretig! Gewoonlik sal hulle nog 'n paar dae wag terwyl hulle aanhou om krag op te bou. Hierdie naweek kan hulle die randgebied van die gebou begin verken.

Hou aan kyk, ons het binnekort jong kinders!

Woah! Maklik doen dit! Die #ProvidencePeregrines se eerste vliegdag kom vinnig nader. Teen hierdie tyd volgende week het ons moontlik 'n paar nuwe kinders in Providence!

In hierdie video jy sien hoe die oudste oë sy vlerke op die briesie toets, met amper geen vere op sy lyf nie. Hy is selfs vandag gesien hoe hy op die kroeg/rand van die nestkas trap. Hulle sal dit die hele week meer begin doen terwyl hulle gretig is om te vlieg. Hulle sal ook die rand rondom die nestkas begin ondersoek. Die jongeres het nog 'n paar donsvere, veral op hul bene (wit broek, iemand ?!)

Die oë sal selfs na hul eerste vlugte van hul ouers afhanklik bly vir goeie maaltye, totdat hulle konsekwent kan jag. Maar in die komende week kan die voedingstyd 'n bietjie yl word en dit dan heeltemal stop, aangesien die ouers hul kleintjies aanmoedig om te vlug en met jaggedrag te begin.

Moenie die vliegdag misloop nie: bly inskakel!

In their fourth week of life, the eyases undergo significant changes almost daily, making the age differences between the first and last to hatch in this brood clearly visible. The secondary (wing) feathers develop brown tips and the number of feathers visible on the breast increases noticeably as well. The area of feathers on their face expands in size each day. Within just a couple days during this period, the eyases will go from regularly resting on their tarsi (lower leg) to being able to stand and walk on their feet exclusively. Soon enough, all four chicks will be regularly opening their wings and running about the nest box!

We have been banding the peregrine falcons in Providence since their re-introduction to Providence in 2000. Peregrine Falcons are a recovering species, nearly extinct in the United States. Peregrine falcons fell prey to the effects of DDT.

Banding data provides critical information on the health of the falcon population. We provide our data to the Bird Banding Laboratory, part of the US Geological Survey.

This morning we banded four male falcons. The parents will continue to care for the birds until they fledge … probably in the next two weeks. As the birds grow, the adults spend more and more time out of the nest hunting, as they need to provide food for four young as well as themselves.

Sometime around 9:45am-10am we will begin the process of banding the young falcons. A board will be placed across the front of the nesting box to protect the falcons. Joe Zbyrowski, our bander, will remove the back opening of the box and remove the falcons. The birds will be measured and the sex determined and then two bands will be placed on one leg of each bird. The bird's legs have stopped growing so the bands will never constrict their legs. The bands will help scientists identify where the birds were hatched, the year, and if they are male or female. The birds will then be placed back in the box, the front board removed and the process will be over. It takes a little over an hour to band four birds.

All is well at the nest. The parents spend much time hunting for their hungry young, plus themselves. Although you don't see a parent in the nest box, rest assured they are only seconds away if any predator approaches. After all, they are the fastest creature on the planet.

The Providence Peregrine webcam is back online! Thank you to our sponsors Streamguys, Stenhouse Consulting, and Cox Communications. When you are streaming from the top of Rhode Island you need a team effort . and everyone delivered! Thank you to all the donors who contributed already this month . we really need your support to keep this camera online.

After a day spent at the Superman building and calls to our internet service provider, we were unable to get a technician out to us due to an unrelated outage in their network. Their next availability is, unfortunately, Monday morning. Until then, you may be able to catch some spotty glimpses of the falcons on the live stream but for the most part, the webcam will be down throughout the weekend. We will post updates here and on social media when we know more or are back online! Thank you for your understanding.

Image is the view of the nestbox from the window of the room we use to access the webcam. All four eyases are doing well and feasted on woodpecker during our visit!

May 14 5:30 pm

It looks like a gosling was "on the menu" today - click here for the video highlight. It was quite a catch! Peregrine Falcons will cache food that they do not finish in one feeding session - especially when there are nestlings to feed. They do so away from their nesting site ("eyrie") in order to not attract predators. Prey is often transferred from male to female near the nestbox, and then the female returns with the catch to feed the young.

You'll notice that the fourth eyas to hatch is now much stronger today!

Did the fourth egg actually hatch?! Ja! What you are seeing in the nestbox is the eggshell from the fourth and youngest eyas' hatch yesterday. Compared to the youngest, the first and second eyases to hatch are three days older and the third eyas is two days older. Developmentally speaking, a couple of days is a long time for the young falcons! The youngest eyas is not only still regaining its strength from hatching out of its egg - but is a bit smaller than the others due to its age. If you look extremely carefully, you will indeed see the fourth eyas - and now that it is over a day old, you may begin to see it more readily!

The fourth egg has hatched this morning! Brooding will continue for about another week. The eyases will fledge (leave the nest) around 38-45 days after hatching timing depends on age, sex and physical condition of each chick.

May 11 8:40 am

One of the four eggs in this year's brood still has yet to hatch. You can see the fourth egg during a feeding session this afternoon in this video, along with the three eyases. The hatching of the fourth egg is still very possible - but the hatch window will close in the coming days.

Happy Mother’s Day to all the hardworking moms - including mama Peregrine! The third eyas hatched this morning. Egg hatching is a strenuous activity that consists mostly of resting time. It is also the first survival test of each bird's life, thus the chicks do not receive any assistance from their parents. Although only three of the four eggs have hatched so far, the parents are already working around the clock to provide enough food for the eyases. They will double in weight in the first week alone!

May 9 8:20 am

The second egg has hatched! Mom can be seen eating the eggshells for the rich source of calcium. For 1-2 weeks after hatching, the chicks are brooded almost constantly, usually by the female while the male hunts for food to feed the family. The female and male will switch places occasionally too! After this period, both adults will leave the nestbox in order to hunt enough food to feed the quickly growing eyases.

May 8 10:25 am

HAPPY HATCH DAY! The first Providence Peregrine began hatching early this morning and was fully emerged from its eggshell by approximately 10 am. Keep tuning in as the other three eggs will hatch throughout the weekend!

Look closely when the adult lifts their body up - can you see "pipping" holes in the remaining eggs? Pipping is what occurs when an egg is ready to hatch and the eyas first uses its beak to punch a small hole in the egg to allow it to breathe air.

May 8 9:30 am

The Providence Peregrine's eggs should be hatching at any time! Mom seems restless - is today hatch day for the Providence Peregrines?

In this video, the female Peregrine Falcon can be seen eating rocks! Peregrines, like all birds, need some grit in their diet to help them digest their meals. She may be ingesting some pebbles from their "scrape" (gravel nest), or she might just be rearranging the gravel while she awaits hatch day!

A fourth egg was laid this afternoon! The Peregrine Falcons will take turns incubating the eggs and hunting for food to support each other - but typically most of the brooding will be done by the female. The incubation period lasts around 30-35 days. To predict a hatch date window, we count 30–35 days from when the second-to-last egg was laid (this is usually when incubation fully begins.)

A third egg was laid in the morning! Can you tell who is incubating at any given time? Female Peregrine Falcons are larger than males. The female does most of the incubating but they do switch off when she needs to feed!

A second egg has been laid. Can you catch a glimpse today? Each egg weighs around 52g and it can take around 48 hours to produce each one!

The Providence Peregrine Falcons are back and there is one egg in the nest as of April 1st!

April 2, 2021

The Providence Peregrine Falcons are back! This popular live stream is brought to you by the Audubon Society of Rhode Island, from atop the "Superman" Building in Downtown Providence.

This year's pair is unbanded for the fourth year in a row - so it is impossible to confirm whether or not it is the same pair from last year. However, the adult Peregrine Falcons that utilize this nestbox usually have enough year-round food in their territory, allowing them to stay here instead of migrating south each winter. This makes it likely that the 2021 pair are the same birds as last year.

The first mating attempt on March 19th was seemingly unsuccessful. A second attempt this week resulted in the first egg, which was laid yesterday, April 1, 2021! Tune in today and into the weekend because more eggs may be on the way!

Thank you for your patience as we put the finishing touches on this year's Providence Peregrine live stream system!

Relive the 2020 nesting season. Video highlights are available!

2020 Updates from the Nest Box

March 17, 2020
A great cure for cabin fever and better than Netflix: the Providence Peregrine Falcons are back!

Over the past week, courtship behavior between the two birds - such as bowing towards each other and flying together - has been seen. Yesterday, they were spotted mating, so eggs are on the way!

The birds look to be the same unbanded pair from last year. As the female gets closer to her egg-laying date, you will see her in the nestbox more frequently. For now, you can see them on camera when they return to stake their territory.

As we find ourselves socially distancing ourselves in order to maintain the health of our community, we hope you'll find joy and wonder once again in watching the Providence Peregrine Falcons live-stream.

Please share widely and if you see something interesting happen on-screen, we'd love to hear about it!

March 20, 2020
The female Peregrine Falcon laid the first egg sometime today, March 20th! While viewing the camera, look for a rust-colored spot. She will lay a total 3-4 eggs over a 2-3 day period. Round-the-clock incubation does not begin until the last or penultimate egg is laid. This allows the the entire clutch to hatch around the same time, roughly 30 days later. Both male and female Providence Peregrines will take turns incubating the eggs. Keep tuning in over the next few days to see her lay the others!

March 22, 2020
There are now two eggs in the nest!

March 24, 2020
Three eggs in the nest as of 6 PM!

March 29, 2020
A fourth egg was laid around 11:30 am!

March 30, 2020
Incubation has fully begun! The Peregrine Falcons will take turns incubating the eggs and hunting for food to support each other. Eggs can be expected to hatch anytime in the last week of April/first week of May!

What can you expect to see as a viewer on banding day? First, bander Joe Zbyrowski will approach the nestbox from the back on a ladder. He will place a board in the front of the nestbox so the chicks don't run out and over the ledge when retrieving them. He will then open the back door, take the eyases out, and place them in a basket. The eyases will be lowered to the landing about 10 feet below. During the whole process, the parent falcons will be exhibiting territorial behavior. You will see orange brooms waving in the background - these are by no means intended to hit the parents. Rather, they deter the parents from attempting to dive-bomb the humans. Once the eyases have been banded and their sex determined, they will be promptly returned to the nest box.

FAQ: Where are the parent Peregrine Falcons?!

At this stage, it is completely normal for the parents of the eyases (chicks) to be absent from the nestbox. They are now spending most of their time hunting to feed their growing family, or resting, and they will only return to feed their young.

The eyases are brooded almost continuously for only around the first 10 days of life. After this point, they are able to regulate their body temperature themselves. Plus, it becomes pretty uncomfortable for the parent(s) to remain in the nest box at all times due to the increasing size of the eyases!

Contrary to what is commonly portrayed in cartoons, nests strictly provide a place for laying eggs and raising young until they fledge during breeding season. Fledglings, juveniles and adult birds do no sleep in nests and many birds do not necessarily have a particular spot they return to each time they need to rest, and the Peregrines are no different. They will perch and rest anywhere they please within their territory.

Keep watching and hopefully you will be tuned-in at just the right time to see the adults return to feed their young!

May 22, 2020
BANDING DAY - Watch the recap on YouTube: https://youtu.be/tZA1WHBMcGc!

Today, we successfully banded and determined the sex of the four eyases: two females and two males! When the chicks are around three weeks old, their legs have stopped growing. This is the perfect time to band the birds because it ensures they will not grow out of their bands, and they are still very docile and easy to handle. Leg size is also the determining factor of the sex of the bird. Females are substantially larger than males - the bigger the leg, the bigger the bird.

Lisa Gould and Loree Kallienen were able to experience the falcon banding this year after winning the experience through the Party for the Peregrines+ online fundraiser Golden Ticket Raffle last week. Thank you to everyone who bought a raffle ticket and participated in the online auction, Joe Zbyrowski for banding this year's brood and Peter Green of Providence Raptors for taking photos and video!

Watch our Party for the Peregrines+ Night 3 replay to learn more about Peregrine Falcon banding from Master bander Joe Zbyrowski: https://youtu.be/vTX-EIcxUs8 (begins at the 20:10 timestamp).

How many and what kinds of leg bands do peregrines get and what do the codes mean?
Peregrine falcons banded in North America typically receive 2 leg bands-one on each leg. The first band is a U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service (USFWS) band which contains a number unique to that individual falcon (similar to a Social Security number). The numbers are small and hard to read unless you have the bird in hand. A second band is placed on the leg opposite of the USFWS band. This band is usually one or two colors and may have a few numbers and/or letters. This is done to increase the number of possible combinations of letters and numbers on these special color bands. These are made to be read from a distance, usually using a camera or spotting scope.

Bird banding allows scientists to track the life history, migration and reproductive behavior of bird individuals and overall populations. The data that bird banding provides is increasing valuable as we aim to better understand the climate and biodiversity crises.

Do the leg bands hurt the falcons or affect the way they hunt?
The bands placed on peregrine falcons are a very lightweight aluminum material and are specially sized to fit a falcon's leg. They do not hurt the bird in any way and are comparable to a human wearing a bracelet. The leg bands do not interfere with flight or grasping of prey.

May 27, 2020
At almost a month old, these chicks are right where they need to be developmentally. Their body contours and back feathers are beginning to take shape. Although they still rest on their tarsi (lower leg) quite often, they have begun walking on their feet!

June 8, 2020
The first Providence Peregrine Falcon fledgling left the nest box at 5:37 AM and has begun exploring the ledge and roof of the surrounding area! A fledgling is a bird with wing feathers developed enough for flight. The other fledglings, one by one, will follow closely behind. They'll begin taking flight within a couple days of leaving the nest box, after they have a chance to really stretch and strengthen their wing muscles.

WATCH: The first fledgling explores the area outside the nest box: https://youtu.be/GAq-ZezGQbY

What happens next? Once the fledglings take their first flights, you may be able to spot them on the live webcam stream for a couple weeks they don't venture too far, and they may still associate the nest box area with food. The fledglings will be dependent on their parents for food for another 4-6 weeks. During this time, they will first get more comfortable flying and then they will attempt to hunt, mostly unsuccessfully at first.

June 8, 2020
At 8:45 pm, within 24 hours of leaving the nest box, the first Providence Peregrine Falcon fledgling took his first flight! While the actual flight itself wasn't captured on video due to the camera angle, viewers are able to see the falcon hop onto a lower ledge and then ultimately leave the building.

The first flights are never graceful, and are sometimes unsuccessful. Luckily, he was spotted on a nearby building the next morning by Peter Green of Providence Raptors. Here is a link to the photos confirming the fledgling's successful first flight.

June 10, 2020
The second Providence Peregrine Falcon fledgling left the nest box at 6:22 AM and has begun exploring the ledge and roof of the surrounding area!

June 10, 2020
The third Providence Peregrine Falcon fledgling left the nest box at 4:13 PM and has begun exploring the ledge and roof of the surrounding area!

June 11, 2020
The fourth and final Providence Peregrine Falcon fledgling has left the nest box at 7:09 AM and has begun exploring the ledge and roof of the surrounding area!

June 11, 2020
Two out of four fledglings have taken their "first flights": the second Peregrine Falcon fledgling glided off of 111 Westminster and safely landed on a rooftop by the Arcade.

June 14, 2020
The final two Falcons took flight sometime over the weekend. Good luck to the newest Providence Peregrine Falcons as they learn to fly and hunt! Thank you to all who watch the 2020 Providence Peregrine nesting season unfold. Each year is exciting, but with social distancing practices in place due to Covid-19, the glimpse into these birds' lives was just that much more special.


A Prayer to St. Peregrine for Sick Relatives and Friends

O great St. Peregrine, you have been called "The Mighty", the "The Wonder Worker" because of the numerous miracles which you obtained from God for those who have turned to you in their need.
For so many years you bore in your own flesh this cancerous disease that destroys the very fiber of our being.
You turned to God when the power of human beings could do no more,
and you were favored with the vision of Jesus coming down from His cross
to heal your affliction.
I now ask God to heal these sick persons whom I entrust to you:
( Here mention their names )
Aided by your powerful intercession, I shall sing with Mary a hymn of gratitude
to God for His great goodness and mercy. Amen.

Peregrine falcon

Ons redakteurs gaan na wat u ingedien het, en bepaal of hulle die artikel moet hersien.

Peregrine falcon, (Falco peregrinus), ook genoem duck hawk, the most widely distributed species of bird of prey, with breeding populations on every continent except Antarctica and many oceanic islands. Sixteen subspecies are recognized. The peregrine falcon is best known for its diving speed during flight—which can reach more than 300 km (186 miles) per hour—making it not only the world’s fastest bird but also the world’s fastest animal.

Coloration is a bluish gray above, with black bars on the white to yellowish white underparts. Adult peregrines range from about 36 to 49 cm (14.2 to 19.3 inches) in length. Strong and fast, they hunt by flying high and then diving at their prey. Attaining tremendous speeds of more than 320 km (200 miles) per hour, they strike with clenched talons and kill by impact. Their prey includes ducks and a wide variety of songbirds and shorebirds. Peregrines inhabit rocky open country near water where birds are plentiful. The usual nest is a mere scrape on a ledge high on a cliff, but a few populations use city skyscrapers or tree nests built by other bird species. The clutch is three or four reddish brown eggs, and incubation lasts about a month. The young fledge in five to six weeks.

Captive peregrine falcons have long been used in the sport of falconry. After World War II the peregrine falcon suffered a precipitous population decline throughout most of its global range. In most regions, including North America, the chief cause of the decline was traced to the pesticide DDT, which the birds had obtained from their avian prey. The chemical had become concentrated in the peregrine’s tissues and interfered with the deposition of calcium in the eggshells, causing them to be abnormally thin and prone to breakage. In the British Isles, direct mortality from another pesticide, dieldrin, was the most important cause of the decline. Following the banning or great reduction in the use of most organochlorine pesticides, populations have rebounded in virtually every part of the world and now exceed historical levels in many regions.

The American peregrine falcon (F. peregrinus anatum), which once bred from Hudson Bay to the southern United States, was formerly an endangered species. It had completely vanished from the eastern United States and eastern boreal Canada by the late 1960s. After Canada had banned DDT use by 1969 and the United States by 1972, vigorous captive breeding and reintroduction programs were initiated in both countries. Over the next 30 years, more than 6,000 captive progeny were released to the wild. North American populations recovered completely, and since 1999 the peregrine has not been listed as endangered. The peregrine has been listed as a species of least concern by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) since 2015.


Vietnam operations

Exactly 3 months later Jamestown got underway for the Far East and reached Subic Bay in the Philippines 29 December. She operated in the South China Sea gathering valuable information for the Navy's ships fighting to protect the independence of South Vietnam while adding to the long Navy tradition of serving the field of scientific research. She continued operating in the Far East, often operating in the Vietnam war zone, through mid-1969.

Jamestown was decommissioned 19 December 1969 and scrapped in May 1970.


21st March 1831. Vitriolic.

When this is dissolved in water (H2O) it converts to Sulfuric Acid (H2SO4).

Sulfur Trioxide in gaseous form is a pollutant and primary agent in acid raid.

Sulfuric acid was a means of revenge in Victorian times used in 1883 by the 40 years Mary Morrison against her husband for which she got five years.

It was also the preferred acid of Haigh in the 1949 gruesome Brides in the Bath murders.

In literature it was used in a Sherlock Holmes case, The Case of the Illustrious Client, where an ex paramour takes revenge on the dastardly Baron Adelbert Gruner.

The highly reactive Sodium (Na) is a soft, silvery metal which when reacting with Sulfuric Acid produces the soluble salt, sodium sulfate, used today in detergents, wood pulp, textiles and glass.(3)

However this salt is bad for buildings as it crystallises with implications for decay of porous masonry, cement and mortar.

Salt weathering is thus a problem for the construction industry where soluble salts of both sodium and calcium (sulfates), are released from Portland Cement.

Sodium Sulfate crystals, in a porous material, may precipitate as the mineral Thenardite or as Mirabilite (in humid conditions) and is found in old mine workings and caves.

(1) Alternative spellings sulphuric, sulphate etc.

(2) When an element is oxidised it loses electrons so now has more protons, thus it rises a cation (positive) level.

(3) Salts depend on the metal and acid used so Zinc and Sulfuric Acid produce the salt Zinc Sulfide.

Natrium sulfite when exposed to air is oxidised to sodium sulfate.

The oxidation state of sulfide is II for sulfite IV and for sulfate VI means it they have to lose those numbers in electrons to be oxidised.

The hydrate (containing water) of Sodium Sulfate (Glauber’s Salts) is also known as Sal Mirabilis, once used as a laxative.

Peregrine AM-373 - History

On 25 February 2019, Pittsburgh returned to its homeport at Naval Submarine Base New London after completion of its final deployment. The submarine arrived at Bremerton, Washington on 28 May 2019, for months-long inactivation and decommissioning process.

During a period of rising tensions with Japan over the Second Sino-Japanese War in 1940, President Franklin D. Roosevelt ordered the Battle Force to relocate from its homeport in San Pedro, California to Pearl Harbor in Hawaii in an effort to deter further aggression. Modernization work for the ships that was scheduled for 1940 and 1941 was cancelled, as was the fleet problem for 1941, as the situation with Japan was approaching a crisis and the Navy determined that the fleet needed to be maintained at a high state of readiness. Nevertheless, when the Japanese attacked the fleet at Pearl Harbor on 7 December 1941, they did so having achieved complete surprise. Totally unprepared for the surprise attack, both ships were anchored in Battleship Row, where California was sunk in shallow water. Tennessee, moored inboard of the battleship and thus protected from torpedo attacks, emerged relatively undamaged, though fires from other ships had warped some of her hull plates and necessitated repairs. She was also trapped when West Virginia sank and came to rest up against Tennessee, forcing her up against the concrete quay.

During the Cuban missile crisis in late 1962, VF-32 flew 96 sorties to support photo-reconnaissance flights and intelligence-gathering missions. After returning from cruise in 1965, the squadron changed homeport from NAS Cecil Field, Florida to NAS Oceana, Virginia, and switched to the F-4B Phantom II. VF-32 detached from Carrier Air Group THREE, ending a relationship that had lasted since the squadron's establishment.

Just before Christmas, the yard delivered Lawrence, which was commissioned on 6 January of the new year, with CDR Thomas W. Walsh in command. She joined the Atlantic Fleet and the navy's first all-missile destroyer squadron commanded by one of Mustin's heroes, CAPT Ike Kidd. Haar homeport was Norfolk, Virginia, and in the Spring of 1962, Lucy and the children moved to Virginia Beach and the first house the Mustins would own.

The submarines' homeport is Simon's Town naval base near Cape Town.

The ship was rushed into service and developed problems with the steering gear, possibly because the ship was incomplete when it was put into service. She was under the command of Capt Mjr. Robert Kasperski and her homeport was at Jastarnia.

Peacock was the last of the Sasebo-based MSC's to depart Japan. She headed for Long Beach, California just after Christmas, 1970, for further assignment as a Reserve training ship. Peacock sailed "unaccompanied" from Sasebo to Taiwan where she laid over for New Years 1971. She then sailed to Subic Bay, PI where she hooked up with four MSO class minesweepers for the transit east. Off Johnston Island Peacock detached from the other ships and headed to Pearl Harbor on her own. Following a short stay in Pearl Harbor she departed for the last leg of the transit to her new homeport of Long Beach, CA. The total transit took 57 days.

Peregrine spent most of the years from 1951 to 1955 operating out of Norfolk with cruises as far south as Balboa, Panama Canal Zone and as far north as Naval Station Argentia, Newfoundland. On 7 February 1955 she became MSF-373. On 9 September 1955 she departed Key West, Florida, for Port Lyautey, North Africa. She operated off Casablanca and called at Gibraltar before sailing for Bermuda and Key West, Florida, arriving at that homeport 8 Desember. From 1955 to 1960 Peregrine operated out of Key West, Florida, as far south as Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and Ciudad Trujillo, Dominican Republic, and as far north as New York City. On 24 June Peregrine departed for special operations near Saint John's harbor, New Brunswick, Canada.

In 1984 Portsmouth entered her homeport of Groton, Connecticut, which she left for her permanent homeport at Ballast Point Submarine Base in San Diego. En route she transited through the Panama Canal and made a quick dash south for her first transit across the equator.

United States Pacific Fleet vessels spent a combined total of 700 days in the South China Sea during 2015 alone. This includes vessels assigned to Carrier Strike Group 5, which included the until the summer of 2015, at which point the USS Ronald Reagan (CVN-76) took its place in the homeport of Yokosuka, Japan after a hull swap in San Diego, CA.

Tobruk conducted her first trips outside Australia in the early 1980s. On 15 February 1982, the ship left Brisbane to transport eight UH-1 Iroquois helicopters from the Royal Australian Air Force, plus supporting stores, to join the Australian contingent to the Multinational Force and Observers in the Sinai Peninsula. Tobruk arrived in Ashdod, Israel on 19 March, becoming the first Australian warship to visit the country, and arrived back in Brisbane on 30 April. The ship transported cyclone relief stores to Tonga in May and spent the remainder of the year undertaking tasks in Australian waters. These included supporting the 1982 Commonwealth Games, which were held in Brisbane. In early 1983, Tobruk travelled to Malaysia to assist the RAAF in withdrawing units from RAAF Base Butterworth. In February 1984, Tobruk took part in exercises in New Zealand, before travelling to Tuvalu in August, where she provided support and accommodation for delegates to the South Pacific Forum. In late 1985, the naval base was decommissioned, prompting the disbanding of the Amphibious Squadron (which had consisted of Tobruk and the six Balikpapan-class landing craft) and the relocation of Tobruk homeport to Fleet Base East in Sydney.

Charlottetown was laid down at Kingston Shipbuilding Ltd., Kingston on 7 June 1941 and launched on 10 September of that year. She was commissioned into the RCN at Quebec City on 13 December and arrived at her homeport of Halifax, Nova Scotia on 18 December 1941.

Thor Heyerdahl (named after Thor Heyerdahl), originally named Tinka, later Marga Henning, Silke, and Minnow, was built as a freight carrying motor ship with auxiliary sails at the shipyard Smit & Zoon in Westerbroek, Netherlands, in 1930. Her original homeport being Hamburg, Germany, she was used for the next 50 years as a freighter. Eventually sailing unter the flag of Panama as Minnow and then awaiting further use in Germany, she was bought in 1979 by two sailing enthusiasts, who turned the now run-down ship into a topsail schooner to use it for sail training, especially for teenagers and young adults. One of the two original owners was Detlef Soitzek, who had sailed with the Norwegian anthropologist, zoologist, ethnologist and adventurer Thor Heyerdahl on his Tigris expedition in 1977/1978, and suggested to name the ship after the famous researcher and adventurer. The ownership of the ship was subsequently turned over to an association.

In all, Liverpool Packet had taken 50 prizes in her brief but successful career. Her captures helped launch the great fortune of Enos Collins. Two steamships from her old homeport of Liverpool, Nova Scotia, were named in her honour in the 20th century.

Ellen Southard plied international trade routes from her homeport in Bath, Maine, with visits documented in ports as far away as Sydney, Australia. In 1864, she recorded the longest duration voyage of any ship transporting railway locomotives from the east to the west coast of the United States. The ship took 205 days to complete the passage after she was delayed for 48 days by unfavourable winds off Cape Horn.

In January 2005, she was chartered to P&O Ferries and entered service on the Zeebrugge – Hull and Rotterdam – Hull routes. On 11 July 2005, Lehola was sold to Elmira Shipping, Piraeus, Greece. She was renamed RR Triumph and reflagged to Malta, her homeport changing from Tallinn to Valletta.

On September 9, 2009, USS Sentry was the last of the Minesweepers from NS Ingleside to arrive in their new homeport of Naval Base San Diego leaving no ships homeported at the base.

Argo was built by John H. Mathis Company in Camden, New Jersey in 1932 and entered service on 6 January 1933 under the command of Lieutenant H. C. Moore, USCG. Her initial homeport was Stapleton, New York until 13 March 1934 when she was transferred to Newport, Rhode Island. She remained in Newport until early 1942. During this time she served on United States Coast Guard Academy cadet training cruises in the Atlantic.

Dallas was at first home ported at the former Coast Guard base on Governors Island, New York. She was relocated to her final homeport of Charleston, South Carolina in September 1996. She was decommissioned on 30 March 2012, and was transferred to the Philippines on May 22, 2012 as an excess defense article through the Foreign Assistance Act.

Smilaxs mission, since her commissioning, has been to service aids to navigation, ensuring the safe navigation of mariners. From her current homeport she is responsible for maintaining 1,226 fixed aids to navigation such as lights and range markers. She is also responsible for 26 buoys throughout the Outer Banks of North Carolina.
