We were chasing birds (Cowboy & Joli ) on Sat morning...finding one at HSC we think it was Cowboy...by the time I got Wowzer set up the bird was gone. They do like the building to eat at as by the evidence found on the ground below the signs.
Never did find a second bird...so you just never know, when or where  :-\  ???

Birdie/Birdies spotted all day yesterday.

One spent the morning on the smoke stack antanee.
When I went out at lunch, one was sitting on the east facing letters.
When I came back from lunch, one was sitting on the red rails under the roof top (see Dennis' picture).  I think this might have been Joli - looked like a bigger bird.
When I went home, one was sitting on the broken letter J.

This morning one was sitting on the south facing letters.

Some birdie has been sitting on the smoke stack antenna since 9:00 this morning.

Nope, not a day trip. ;)

Last year (on August 4) TPC posted this on the Radisson forum:
Quote
Oak Hammock Marsh is about a one hour drive from the Radisson Hotel, but only about a 5-10 minute flight for the birds (straight line).  It's north of the City, about 20 minutes from the City limits and is the last remnant of the old St Andrews Bog.

That's why TPC always says they have large territories.

Some birdie needs his mother to come clean up after him: 

Dead whole pigeon lying in the street - must have dropped it in flight.
Wing bits lying out in front of the Buhler building.
A white shore bird with dark brown spots half eaten on the ground below the east facing letters - made a day trip to Oak Hammock Marsh??

I know what you mean birdnut. I see all sorts of dead birdie parts and whole dead birds at the McKenzie site.  Lots of shore birds........not many pigeons though.  :)

Last night at 4:00ish, some birdie landed on the "r" in research with lunch in his claws.
He enjoyed his supper and sent feathers flying everywhere. 

This morning the rain let up a bit and some birdie was sitting on the roof of the Buhler building right above the letters on the east side.

Yes it was a treat. It makes me envy all those downtowners who are able to watch from their offices every day.

I just came out of the Manitoba Clinic and heard the familiar screeching above. I looked up and a PF did a couple of circles of the power building and headed over to Buhler. Once I crossed Notre Dame, I could see 2 PF's flying beautifully, really fast, dipping and weaving closer to the Children's side of HSC. What a treat!
