I have only seen one bird at a time for the last week.
This morning it was Hart sitting up on top the building.
Yesterday it was Joli on her favourite antenne perch.

So here hoping when I see only one bird, the other is with the little ones.



Thanks for the update birdnut!  I’m thinking this indicates at least some life in the nest, so hoping all four are still well.

TPC, does this tupperware nest have drainage holes on the sides and bottom? Also I can’t remember if an enclosed box available here or not.

The tuppernest does have drainage holes just like all the other boxes - and 3 or more inches of gravel so way above any possible puddling on the roof.  And no, there isn't an enclosed box at this site.  We tried to get one installed end of last year and again this spring but building management still has concerns about the peregrines nesting here, so we do what we can as we can.  Last year Joli did very well in the rain with her three boys and the spot is pretty sheltered for a rooftop - not like West Winnipeg which has been getting hammered today.

Still trying to stay positive, but yesterday while water pooled in my yard, it was too much a reminder of the chicks we lost in previous years. Sure hope you find good news here TPC! Perhaps this spot being somehow sheltered provided help!

I too am fretting a little about our falcons today.  All the birds coming to my feeders are soaked and it keeps reminding me of our littlest chicks.  I sure hope the news tomorrow is that all made it through. 

ENOUGH RAIN, STOP!!!!!!!!

My bucket now has about 12 inches of water in it. It isn't really a rain gauge though!

...as long as Joli, who is likely the biggest of our females right now, was able to keep all the kids under her and warm, they should be fine.  Won't know until tomorrow at the earliest though ....

So much rain in Winnipeg this weekend. Here's hoping for the best for these 4 chicks. :-*

Fingers and toes crossed, because we can't do anything else. PLEASE STOP RAINING!!!

Really? Only 18+ mm of rain? I would have thought more. I have a bucket sitting on my back steps that has 4 inches of rain in it and I only live a couple of km south of there. Perhaps it is very regional than I thought it could be.

I think you may be right - a watering can at my place has very little, West Winnipeg had 12mm about 1300h and downtown was 18mm at the same time.  These stations all have precipitation gauges so they never record what I think poured on my place but it is at least a standard to gauge (no pun intended) by.

Intermittent fretting about weather seems to be a standard part of the Peregrine Phanatics experience  :-X- Hopefully all our new chicks come through this rain safe and sound!!  :-*
