Just so you all know, Hurricane has migrated.  Rose and I saw her on Sunday, Oct 4th.....haven't seen her since then. I hope she has a safe flight there and back to wherever she goes on her migration.  :)

It's going to be a long, cold winter! :(

I haven't gone back to check but from your recollection RCF, is there a pattern in who leaves first between Brooklyn and Hurricane?

From what we have seen, Brooklyn leaves about a week before Hurricane and she was still there today.  :)

Hurricane is still here! The weather has been fairly nice so that may be why she is still here. I do seem to recall it being much colder last year because she left around October 1st.  I haven't seen Brooklyn since the last time I posted. Gingerlee was the last person to see him.....that I know of anyway.

Here she is on the west light, me looking way up from the tiny parking lot on the south side.

Sorry, but the birds were on the lights of the clock tower, not the antennas

I was in Brandon on this past weekend & was able to get some shots of the birds.  Not as good as yours RCF as I couldn't get a good close up of either one of them & Hurricane kept hiding her head while I was there.  Think it was her by the colouring on the breast.  Then this morning both of them were on the antennas of the building.  Glad I got a chance to see them though.

Nice to see a pair still around!  They look to be in great condition too - well rested for their next big challenge (migration).

And yes, it does look like peregrine migration is in full swing - there have been peregrine counts at pretty much every migration site south of us for the last week.

Hope Brooklyn & Hurricane hang around a bit longer for you to enjoy RCF!

Thank you for the update, RCF.

How wonderful it must be for you to continue to see these two every day, morning and afternoon, as the season grows later.

Just thought everyone would like to know that both Hurricane and Brooklyn are still here.  I see them every day, morning and afternoon.  I haven't seen a chick since August 27th, so hoping they have a safe migration.
