Qumran, what a wonderful vantage point you have! You'll have to post often with details!  :)

I work at the Diner, and all I know is that when I start seeing pigeon pieces in the parking lot, my falcons are home and all is right with the world.  This morning there were feather galore and bits of birds scattered about.   ;D

Somehow, I do get the feeling that she might mean that, ballywing, although I hope not too. :(

I wonder if TPC's description in the Radisson thread about Jules being 'BAD' means the nest site has been chosen? HOPE NOT!!  ::)

Good news about Jules at the Diner nest box! Hopefully, she'll choose to lay her eggs there!

Dennis and Wowzer were checking on Jules and Beau today in West Winnipeg and their love affair has shifted into hot-n-heavy.  Best of all, after a little canoodlin', Jules flew over and hopped into the nestbox on the Diner!!!  And she stayed there for awhile while Beau watched from the far side of the building.

Wish I could say that Jules stayed there but she and Beau did apparently go visit the "unsuitable" site ... hopefully they are deciding it is unsuitable too ,,,

Please don't tell me you drive with the Wowzer held up to one eye

I'd pay to see that ... from a safe distance of course  ;D ;)

Careful out there birdcamfan...it takes years of practice to learn to drive with your knee and one eye focused on the road with the other on a bird and taking photos...just be careful out there.

Yesterday afternoon, drove by the Bleachers and had one falcon land. He was kakking very loudly. Took a couple of pictures and realized from the red band it was Beau. After a few minutes, we decided to go look for Jules. Just as I finished packing up my camera, Jules popped up from somewhere at the back of the Bleachers and flew off. We followed her to the Lookout.

Again today, same time (more or less)...this time on one of the letters - the "s" I think - on the south side of the building.  Didn't get a great look coz the light was green and I had to keep driving :P

I love reading all these reports from locals. Thanks for the update!
