Great interview on CBC early yesterday morning, TPC. :)

The 2 chicks that did hatch are 14 days old now and look enormous! Ally just finished feeding them and they are having a faceplant nap at the moment. ;)

On Up to Speed today (CBC Radio One) just after 3pm they interviewed someone from Nebraska who was talking about Alley. I think they said Josh (?)...

Here's what Joel Jorgensen posted on his Peregrine Blog on May 17th...

Conquering Canada and the World

Ok, the headline may be a little bit over-the-top.   However, I had the tremendous privilege of being interviewed for about five minutes on the Canadian Broadcast Corporation’s Winnipeg, Manitoba, affiliate today to chat about Peregrine Falcons.  Why would our neighbors to the north want to talk to some yokel in Nebraska about Peregrine Falcons?   Answer:  our female, A/Y or “Ally”, was hatched in Winnipeg in 2004 and showed up in Lincoln in 2005 (and has been here ever since).  Congrats to you if you knew the answer.  They were merely catching up and seeing how the ol’ girl was doing.   Thanks to Mike Green and Larry the afternoon guy for the opportunity to chat. They are still raising falcons in Winnipeg and also have a webcam, their page can be found:

If anyone is up at oh-dark-thirty (0600h), I'll be on CBC Information Radio talking about Alley and other Manitoba birds nesting elsewhere ...
Hopefully there will be a podcast for folks interested and who rise at a more reasonable hour  ;)

What a nice little family. Thank you for posting the pictures.

On Up to Speed today (CBC Radio One) just after 3pm they interviewed someone from Nebraska who was talking about Alley. I think they said Josh (?) I was walking home and listening on my iPod - so between the noise of construction and traffic, I didn't hear the entire segment. I'll keep an eye on the web site & post the link if they put the interview in their archives. I think it usually takes a day or two.

Looks like another egg has a pip in it. She's been shuffling around a lot this morning. :)

Checked on this pair this morning and they have four eggs in the box on the State Capitol Building.  They have two interesting views this year, one long and narrow on the nestbox and the other long and wide that shows the nestbox on one side - this one could provide some amazing flight in/out shots I suspect.  Not to mention great sky/weather views.

According to the Blog, hatch here should be about the same time as the Radisson hatch, early in May ...
