Tracy, has there been a confirmation on the McKenzie falcon/chick?  :'(

I haven't heard anything since, but I think in this case that is not good news ... the plan was to see if someone local could check out the area where the transmitter signal was last recording ... will post if I hear anything ...

Aw... very sad to hear.  :'( Any more news?

Update on the Brandon chicks - all are still alive and have arrived on their respective wintering grounds - and no, none are hanging out together.  
Bogart is hanging out in Texas/Louisiana along the coast, Spencer is in Texas and Kelly is in western Mexico.

Looks like Spencer decided that Texas wasn't to his liking and has relocated to Mexico.

Have any of them been visiting Hurricane's and Brooklyn's cache locations yet?

  No, but I usually only see them in those spots when it's very windy, raining or snowing.

Ahhh.  We've had a raven in the Radisson nestbox scarfing snacks from the remains of the peregrines' recent meals ...

this is how we truly know the peregrines are gone in our area. the ravens are a plenty.

How great to hear that the chicks are all still alive and have migrated successfully to their wintering grounds! :D

It looks like the Ravens have taken up residence at the McKenzie building again this year.  There was two of them perched at the bottom of the clock tower this afternoon.  Maybe they will keep some of the pigeons at bay.   ;)
