Hope our birds find places to cool down as Environment Canada is predicting a high of 38C today, though I think the wind will be helpful. Yesterday, some areas in Manitoba broke heat records.

It is a change to see the nestbox so clean at this time of year.

Princess was enjoying the shade on the northwest corner of the nestbox this morning. I spotted her about 11:50 am, but I think she had been sitting there awhile. She left at 12:26 am.

I think that is Princess relaxing on the edge of the nestbox. Shes been there about 20 minutes, but possibly much longer - nice to see her again.

Thanks so much for the info TPC!  :)

How old is Princess now, TPC? And when do Peregrines stop procreating?  I'm sure you have answered this many times but I don't know how to go back and find out.

Peregrines stop producing eggs when they do - no set age limit.  There are older birds that have produced viable eggs and younger birds that have stopped producing all together.

Princess was hatched in Minneapolis in 2002, so as of this year, she is 16 years old.  Last year she produced 3 healthy chicks with seemingly little difficulty, but she doesn't really confide in me so we will have to see if she returns in the future or decides to take a leisurely retirement out of the reach of amorous young peregrines and their desire to procreate.  ;)

Really glad we got to see some of our Princess and her young beau this season - but disappointed they didn't do the 'family' thing this year.  :-\ - Princess may be done with all that business now,  and though I sure hope to see her again, it seems like the best nest site in town is going to waste - wonder if someone else will take it over. (Not 'til she stops coming to town I'm guessing)  :P
