Nice catch RCF - nice to see another one of Hurricane's and Brooklyn's has survived.

Is it too early to write off Brooklyn?  I would say not.  I know they usually turn up about the same time each year, but that isn't a requirement, not by a long shot!!  :)  I'll be interested in hearing how Hurricane responds to him - she may not have anything to do with him or it may take her awhile to warm up to him or it may get down to business very quickly.  I'm going to hang on adding Sol's name to the subject line just in case.

Nice to see that Brandon is having some of the excitement we've been enjoying!  ;)

I know how you feel. when Miss Edmonton did not return last year to Weber, it was bittersweet but at least we had one of RAdissons there. And we have confirmed Green girl at Weber again.

We have been watching since April 4th and have tried to convince ourselves that the male is Brooklyn. There was just something off about this bird, he wasn't perching where Brooklyn usually did, also the breast feathers and malars were different. Today I got the band number. It is not Brooklyn, it is Sol D/20 from 2012, Hurricane and Brooklyn's son. We are glad that he survived the last four years but saddened that Brooklyn has not returned as of yet.

Sol is quite the little flyer, lots of aerobatics and showing off to his mom, she doesn't seem to be impressed or receptive yet. He flew around her and looked like he wanted to mate but she never got into position for that. I am sure she will come around if Brooklyn doesn't show up. Plus I did get most of her band number.....the 2 and the Y and sure as sure it's Hurricane.  :)

Great catch RCF!!  ;D

Hopefully the weather and the bird (birds maybe soon) will cooperate and let you get a good look/photo of their band(s).

According my records from last year - Brooklyn returned on Apr 6th, Hurricane on the 11th.  In 2014, she returned on the 6th, he was back on the 9th.  So, they are pretty much on schedule which is nice to see!

April 4/2016

Yup!  There is one peregrine here but I don't know who.  ???   It looks male but I have only seen it perch on the north light of the McKenzie bldg, which I find unusual.  Brooklyn and/or Hurricane do not usually perch on that particular light. I couldn't read the number but the birdie does have a black band on the right leg, silver on the left.

Certainly hope Brooklyn and Hurricane postpone their return for a few days with all the inclement weather forecasted.  ::)
