Some birdie was visiting HSC again at 8:15 last night on the east facing letters.

and two birds this morning at 9:30.... one birdie was on the roof and one was sitting on the letters facing south.

Sure was hoping for Cowboy and Kate to "settle down" here but alas that is not to be.  So much happening accidentally to so many!  It is heartbreaking. Perhaps we will see cowboy again next year (he isn't so young either) and he will be with a new "woman".  Three nests in Winnipeg would be great..........especially for the ones doing the watching (us).  A lot of work for you TPC and Dennis and ES.

 :o :'( OMG, Tracey.  So sorry to hear of yet more sad news!  It truly has been a very trying year for you, the Forum, and these lovely birds and their young ones.  Hoping next year will be better for all.

So hard to find words to explain how we feel. Many of the falcons/chicks/eggs didn't have a chance this season.  :'(  I hope all have a successful migration and return to us next year.

This isn't off-topic but I have been speaking with a number of biologists over the last few days (just catching up on things) and apparently, its not just the peregrines that are hurting this year - all bird species have been taking hits - lots and lots and lots of nest failures right across the board.  No guarantee of course, but if that is the case, then next year can only be better (knock on wood, fingers crossed)

Not surprising with all the wacky weather that's been going on everywhere :P
