Can't take credit for these names - the folks at Manitoba Conservation in Brandon came up with them.
Wish I had though ...  ;D

 ;D ;D ;D I love these names. Memories of two favorite cartoon strips are #1 Calvin and Hobbes and #2 Mother Goose and Grimm. Thanks, TPC for sharing.

??? Have the chicks been named?

Yes, they have.  And even though they haven't fledge yet and I'm twitchy about publishing their names, everyone else has been named so here goes ... Calvin (red tape) and Hobbes (no tape/silver).  As RCF's photo showed they are busy popping around on the roof of the building which is great for building their strength and figuring out what the big flappy things are for.  KNOCK ON WOOD it serves them well when they decide to take their first flights!

These two are about 30 to 35 days old and we hadn't seen them up on the walls so I parked about seven blocks east of the building. Through binoculars you can just see the peak of one of the skylights. I took a couple of photos and we were able to see the two chicks on the skylight and Sol was perched on the pillar to the right of them. It's not a very clear picture but can see the two chicks still have fluff on their heads and wings. Happy to see they are alive and well.  :)

Nice to know the chicks are well - love their little white fluffies! ;D

My and Rose's view when the chicks were removed from the nest box. I am sure some of you will recognize one of these people. ;D

Sorry, driving and chatting and texting means I forgot to mention that RCF and Rose were our ground-crew today in Brandon.  They were in charge of keeping track of Hurricane and Sol as we were focussed on the chicks and the pigeon mess!!! Actually, RCF's got downtown Brandon so well scoped out for camera angles I think a) they do t miss a thing that goes on at McKenzie Seeds and b) the peregrines consider them as odd-looking members of the family (because humans would be odd-looking to peregrines NOT that RCF or Rose are odd-looking!!!)

 ;D Haha thatís funny! But seriously, they must consider RCF and Rose family - after seeing them so often! 

Sounds like you had a fun day! :D
