Or imagine a small width wedding band...it would be very small print  :)
This sounds like a different type of band than what I remember seeing placed on chicks (although I have very limited experience with this). Is this unusual? Are there specific places where they use these bands? It sounds like you would have to be actually holding the leg in your hand to be able to read it.

TPC, from last year's post you were still trying to read the numbers on Jules band to find out her background.
Did you have any luck or is that Wowser's job this year? ???

Not so far ... and I'm not sure that even Wowzer can read her band but we will keep giving it a try.  Imagine a washer and a nut (hardware kind of nut).  Jules' ring band is somewhere between the two widths and the numbers on the band are written around the circumference.  And there are 6-8 numbers.  We will need to get very lucky to read all the numbers with any kind of camera, but we will persevere.  ;D

Has any male appeared in the West Winnipeg area yet?

Nope, not so far.  Just Jules hanging out at the B&B and the Diner and at a "new" location a long way north which we will call the "crow's nest".    Despite its name, its not suitable for a peregrine (or any other kind of bird) nest on.  She likes it I think because she can see a long way from it when hunting.

We are only now at the time that most of the Manitoba peregrines return, so no worries if it takes another week for Beau to return.  In fact, Beau was the last bird to arrive last year and they did just fine in the end.

Yes, Eye-Spy has kept the cams going at the West Winnipeg site all winter.  And yes, she really was there this morning - I was watching on the cam, Dennis was watching her from his truck as he drove past.


Nope.  Thats not it.
