It is lovely to see a pair hanging along together so long post nesting ... good sign for next year and potentially for a long successful time together!

Well done April, Wingo & RCF!  ;D

September 16 2020

 Things are different with the falcons this year, most likely because there is a new female.  After the chicks fledged I didn't see them very much downtown, adults or chicks.  I guess they have been out at the Tower.  I saw both Wingo and April but only one chick and the last I saw a chick was August 20th and it was out at the Tower. 

Brandon Tower Nest ~ http://www.species-at-risk.mb.ca/pefa/forum/index.php/topic,4855.msg107254.html#msg107254
 
So, for five days in a row these two were out at Tower in the early morning. I did see them out there in August also. It seems April prefers being out there and Wingo followed her. I hadn't seen a falcon at the McKenzie building for the past two weeks until yesterday. 

For now, Wingo and April are still here as of yesterday. :)

These two look to be doing very well.   :)   Wingo in the nest box, April on the south light and chicks on the roof. 8)

These two were on the lower roof this afternoon, April was watching from the top of the nest box.



I do like this photo ...  ;D

 I didn't see either chick in or on the box this morning. Both parents were on the McKenzie building so they are probably on the lower roof or very close by.

From yesterday

Oh those two look ready to go aright ... maybe the cooler weather this week will be the catalyst.
Fingers crossed either way!!!

And I was looking at the top picture on July 4th and both those ankles look kinda chunky ...do they seem like that to RCF? Can you have a look (photo or no photo) next time you are checking on the kids? From that July 4th photo I'm kinda leaning towards maybe 2 girls ... but you "see" them which is always better ...

I thought that earlier but it's hard to tell. There doesn't seem to be a significant difference in size between the two.....so maybe! :-\
