Drove by this evening, Beau (I think) was on the railing.

He was back last night for some time perched on the building... then off...might have been back back but it got too dark for me to see. Saw one briefly on the building this morning, then flying around for a bit...

These two are still giving us grief but we think they have perhaps started laying so we may have news on where and how many soon!

We haven't been able to access the site we suspect they are using but when we do, our plan is to set up a camera to keep an eye on them again this year.  And yes, we do have all the tech prepped and ready to go. 

... We are ?
Do you know something I don't ?

Pay no attention folks, Eye-spy's creative mind has already been working on solutions for WW.  ::)

TPC do you have a camera at this site this year.  Last year you could watch it, right?  Any word on where or if they have decided to nest this year?

We don't actually even know if they have chosen a site, won't know until we can see if they have started laying.  We haven't been able to access the site we suspect they are using but when we do, our plan is to set up a camera to keep an eye on them again this year.  And yes, we do have all the tech prepped and ready to go.  But we must wait until we can actually check out the site.  Just a logistical glitch at the moment, when we get it sorted, we'll be able to get up there and then things should tick along quickly.  We think they are on the same time line as the Brandon birds and they have just started incubating.  We know that the WW birds haven't started incubating so we still have 1 month+ before hatching.  And the delay is not criticial just annoying.  If they are laying, better to leave them to it.  If they were incubating the chances of them abandonning the site because we visit it is low, in part because they are committed at that point and in part because we won't be staying long.  So annoying because we don't know for sure what they are doing and where they are doing it, or at least not yet. 

So its just plan and be ready to go when we need to go.

West Winnipeg birds may have started to lay but have not started to incubate.  We are having difficulty accessing the site at the moment but hopefully this week we will be able to get a clear look at the nestsite.

Both birds are fine and doing all the things a peregrine does in the spring  ;)


More news as we have it
