1430h - finally managed to be checking the cam while someone was around.  Brooklyn perched on the edge of the nestbox watching over his territory.  Had a swivel around with the cam which he was very suspicious of.  No one else around that I could see.

I saw two chicks and both parents today. One chick who I think was Bogart chased Brooklyn off the Scotia sign, the other chick was on the south light and by size was most likely Spencer.  Hurricane was perched on the nest box preening.

I could only see one birdie this morning on the Scotia building trying to stay out of the rain. I only saw Brooklyn and Spencer this afternoon.  Spencer was eating on the southwest corner of the McKenzie roof and did a lot of yelling after finishing his meal.  ::)  Brooklyn was perched on the north ledge of the Scotia building and I didn't see Hurricane today.

I saw three falcons very early this morning and after work I saw two chicks.  One on the south light of clock tower and the other one was on the north ledge of the Scotia building, no sign of Brooklyn and Hurricane this afternoon.

I saw three falcons here at 6:50 am.  One was on the east Scotia sign, the other two were on the south and west clock tower lights.  It's still fairly dark at this hour so I don't know who was where.  I could only see their silhouettes through my binoculars, so I guess one chick is still hanging around as of this morning.  I only saw Brooklyn and Hurricane after work and Brooklyn was perched on the nest box again today.  :)

I only saw Hurricane and Brooklyn today, no kids. Hurricane was on the south light of the clock tower and Brooklyn was perched on the east side edge of the nest box at 3:45 pm.

Bogart and Spencer are still hanging out at the McKenzie building. Bogart was more accommodating than Spencer picture wise. Hurricane showed up just before I left to go home.

I saw one chick and Hurricane after work.

Since we know that Kelly is in Saskatchewan, this is Bogart or Spencer ... which of the chicks is the one with the kink in the end of the transmitter antennae RCF?

That would be Spencer, so this is probably Bogart and he was doing a lot of yelling. ::)  ;D

Great to hear of the Brandon PF's, TPC & RCF! Maybe Spencer or Bogart will consider returning to Manitoba if they make it through the winter, since they seem to be homebodies!
Wishful thinking. :)

Update on the chicks' travels .... they have been checking out all the places a peregrine would find tasty eats at this time of the year ...

Kelly is in southern Saskatchewan and looks like she hasn't been back to Brandon in at least 2 weeks.

Spencer has been exploring east, west and south of Brandon even down just over the border but he's coming home regularly.

Bogart is our homebody relatively speaking.  He's travelled not quite as far as Spencer and it looks like he's more interested in the area west of Brandon but he too has been coming home regularly.


* regularly doesn't necessarily mean back to McKenzie Seeds each night, just back to Brandon
