About 4:30 pm today, Beau was on the south sign of the Diner, and another was on the east sign, perhaps Beatrix.

Found Beau in the same place as yesterday, at about the same time of day.

Today at 5:30 p.m. we found a falcon on the north wall of the B&B, dark head, looked like Beau. We looked around to see if we could find any others and spotted one on the Tower.

Yesterday we spotted two peregrines on the north wall of the B&B at about 5:30 p.m. They were turned toward the wall, so we couldn't see enough of the breast to determine if they were white or golden.

I saw one bird last evening, in the rain, at around 6:00 p.m. on the east side of the building above the letters. It was a "drive-by" with no binoculars, so could not tell who it was.

Yesterday evening, we spotted two birds on the Tower. As we approached I saw one take off after prey, so when we arrived there was only one left. Looked like a larger adult that was left on the Tower, so I am assuming Beatrix. I assume Beau was the one we saw take off.

Susha, I have a little help from my camera. I can see much better with it, better than I can with binoculars. Beau has such a dark head that he is easy to identify. If I see an adult (white breast), a bit large (female) with a mylar bar on the cheek, I do sort of assume it is Beatrix.

Today at 6:00ish, there were two adults on the south sign of the Diner. One was Beau, the other looked like Beatrix.

I saw that bird as well, Dupre, sitting on the letter "O".  I never know who it is...I'm just thrilled to see him/her!

Two mornings ago, I saw a bird on the NW corner of the diner and cheered as I drove by!  Season's not over ;D

Late this afternoon, Beatrix and one chick were both on the east sign of the Diner.

Yesterday evening we found Beatrix on the Diner and one chick perched on the north side of the B&B.

I also had a chance to review my photos from the day before (Sept 10) and the chick at the B&B had red tape on it's leg (Bristol).

Last night, during rush hour on Route 90 (which is very very congested with construction at the moment) one of the adults was on the south side sign of the Diner.  Nice to see but after an eternity on the road I can only guess that it was Beau based on what I could see of the size of the bird on the "e".

I am thinking that this cold weather might send them on their way south!  :P
