I have only been seeing the one peregrine here since June 14th and it's been Lily.  I don't know if it's bad timing or what.  I can't tell if one of them is in the ravens nest......I think it's fairly deep.  We had trouble seeing the Raven when it was nesting.

Would Lily be likely to use the ravens nest for laying eggs?

Alice and Zeus used a raven's nest for their unsuccessful nest a couple of years ago, so yes absolutely possible.  The catwalk the nest is on is not suitable for nesting otherwise.  We'll have to see whether or not Lily is just practising or whether she is going to try the real thing ...

I was wondering the same thing, bcbird. If so, then maybe Lily has laid some eggs. Wouldn't that be wonderful! :D

We only saw one falcon here today, napping.

Hmmm, that's Lily so Mr Lily could be on eggs (if there are eggs) or perhaps they are going to have a long engagement ...

...  haven't seen Mr Lily for awhile - have you or Rose seen him lately RCF?

We saw them both yesterday and I was busy and didn't really get a chance to download the pictures. I also kind of forgot about it.  ::)   Lily was in the Raven's nest and he was perched above her on the top catwalk railing.




You can just see her tail in this one

If you know what to look for that transmitter sure makes it easy to tell who's who at a glance  :D

We only saw one falcon out here today and she was perched on the tallest building under a security camera on the southwest corner.  She looked like she had a full crop and was napping. I couldn't see anything wrapped around her aerial like the last time we saw her, so that's good.  We didn't see the male today but we saw him yesterday.

Shelf was on the railing where the Ravens nested hopefuly looking at the nest box. ;)

Oh wouldn't it be nice if someone else would use a nestbox ... ::)

Here's hoping!!  :)

WE were ready to leave when up pops the male, a quick canoodle and he flies away. There was RCF saying all manner of words that can't be printed, she had just put her camera away. Then we had to drive around until we found him(on the top catwalk of the tower opposite to the one Lily was on.) She was on the railing where the Ravens nested hopefuly looking at the nest box. ;)

We saw both peregrines today.  :)  We saw the transmitter female who has been named "Lily" by the Peregrine Falcon Recovery Project.  She was named in honor of the Neepawa Lily Festival.  She is a captive bred bird hacked/released from Neepawa in 2011.  
  
We thought we were only going to see the one falcon today, but as soon as I put my camera away, the male showed up and we saw them canoodle.  :o ::)  :-*  

Looking at my photo's I could clearly see that something is wrapped around her transmitter aerial and flapping in the wind.

Lily



Male

Fantastic work, as usual, RCF!
