What about the older nesting site?

Jules was at the bad nesting site at 8:30 this morning.

That is a different sort of misbehaving, and not likely to meet with our approval!

At least this site has its regulars back with no one is misbehaving!

Yay!
So far..

Dennis reported in and Jules is parked at the nestbox on the Diner and Beau is on the other side of the building.  Favourite locations for the pair of them, particularly when "canoodling" ...  ;)

Took a drive around yesterday about 5:30 p.m., checked everything from the B&B to the Look-out. No peregrines to be found.

Will be checking all locations today to see what can be found. If it has feathers I'll take it's picture.

Anyone seen Beau and Jules lately? Twice this week on my way to work I've seen a birdy soaking up the sun on the letters on south side of diner (Wednesday on the "p", this morning on the "r") but both times, I questioned whether I was seeing one of our peregrines. The bird I saw seemed to have quite a bit more golden brown in feathers and was poofier than I'd expect, making me wonder if that hawk was still hanging around.  ???

I haven't seen them but that is likely just my schedule.  Don't know about Dennis, but he'll probably post when he sees your question.  He can' also confirm my recollection that it isn't unusual for Beau and Jules to take off for a few days right after coming back to town ... as I recall, they do it at the start of courtship every year.  Considering the weather is 10C degrees colder than the seasonal norm, it's possible they are in no rush and are off on their annual honeymoon ...

Shoot! I was looking for them everytime I run but haven't had any luck recently. This sounds encouraging though!

I was able to observe two birds at the Bleachers today from 4:00 through 4:30 p.m. (they were still there when I left). They had their backs to the sun and warming up those dark back feathers.

Well somebody was sitting on the NE corner of the diner last night at about 6:10 p.m. Female I think though I wouldn't swear to it.
