Spent about an hour hanging out with Beau and Jules this evening before the sun went down and other than a little loving at sunset, it was pretty much just hanging around and not doing much.  Might indicate that they are about to start laying eggs or it might take a wee bit longer.  They were not giving any hints as to what they are going to do where.  I'm afraid that it will take that first egg to before we'll know for sure!

Drove by last year's nest site yesterday afternoon, no sightings but did ask a workman about work being done.  Window washers were at the highest windows on one side.  Apparently roofing had just finished on a nearby building, more roofing to be done on a larger flat-roofed area nearby, and bids were in for other buildings including nesting one.  Bidding to working takes time and owners have been co-operative, so just keeping you up to date on what a worker told me.

Driving down the road and I drove by a bird in the middle of the road.  Thought it was pigeon material, but then it was drving me nuts so I had to find a place to turn around and make sure it was pigeon.  It is...couple of wings worth anyway.

we saw a peregrine flying around the place you folks don't want them to nest.  Not sure what you call the place.  Not too into the code names.  That was about 4:30

Its called "the Bleachers" MsD.  :)

And just for reference for folks from away, the Bleachers, the Diner and the B&B (where they nested last year) are all within a minute's flying time of one another ... we still don't like when they hang out at the Bleachers.
