Jules and Beau have been at the "Diner" off an on today ... a little sex, a little hunting ... think we might have another week before these two start working on eggs ... but we'll be keeping an eye on them just the same ...

A run by all the known locations and all I found was a "Lone" bird as Tracy had  said...retracing the steps this afternoon and didn't spot any birds. The good thing was that I didn't see anyone at the location that we didn't want them at.

I was by the west wpg area very early today and no sight of the birds in either the 2009 site or the diner.

Much better image, thanks, Dennis!  We can only hope that the point is taken!

Either Beau or Jules was camped out on the Diner (think it was Beau) when I went past early this morning, but s/he was gone by 9-9:30 when Dennis checked.  Didn't see their significant other anywhere, but that might just mean they were off getting breakfast ...

Hahaha! Perfect captioning! Jules is right, the place is a dump. Move on.

It does amaze me though how they would go there with what I think ought to be numerous other options in the city. Surely Beau (or Mr. X) would not even know of that place's existence, so I'd think Jules would have to have been the one who led him there. It's all so interesting.

Hmm, the print is not coming out too clearly:

Translation:

Beau (or Mr X)    "Well, Jules, what do you think?"
Jules    "Last year I had a penthouse.....you want me to have this....Perhaps we will keep looking!"

Beau and Jules:

Don't make me come down there and give you two a talking to!  That will NOT be pretty!

Fledge watch will not be nice at all if they chose a site other than the one they were at last year.  I sure hope they change their minds and get back to the good nest box.

at 1030 hrs local

Beau and Jules are currently hanging out at the site Jules tried to nest on in 2009 and where she lost all her eggs.  We do have a nestsite nearby so we are positive yet if they are seriously considering the site or just hanging out there because its pretty sheltered from the wind.  We hope they aren't seriously considering it of course, so we'll be keeping and extra close eye on them for the next little while ...
Fledge watch won't be near as nice if that's what they decide.
