Somebirdy at the diner this morning at about 8:30 on the "v" facing west.

hey Cooper - the bird was facing west?  there isn't a "v" on the west side of the building ...  ???

Couldn't the birdie be facing west and still be sitting on the "v"?  :-\  ???

I just came home and saw the birdie is sitting on the "v" facing south. I don't think I've seen them on the v before.

Just got a report that one of the WW females turned up back at the hack site looking for free food ... and yes, she got it!  :D
Hmmm... interesting. So, as long as any of the WW fledglings continue to show up at the hack site, they'll continue to be fed, even if they have learned to hunt for themselves? :-\

No, just luck in this case, the bird was there long enough for the attendant to chase up a treat for her.  She'll be gone shortly from what I have seen of the migration patterns in the US.  A couple of captive-bred birds released this year are spending more time south of the border now and we are seeing this year's birds (adults and kids) much less often and for shorter periods of time, so 'tis that time of the year.  The treat was so they could get her to hang around a bit longer so they could get a look at her to try to see how she'd been faring.  And she looked good!

One of the West Winnipeg girls just made a trip into the US but was only there for the day before returning north of the border and I believe back to her sister near Lake Winnipeg ...

Tsk, another example of same day cross border shopping?
Are you serious, like she just went down to the states for the day??

Yup, down and back.
