I have to say that Hurricane and Wingo look so much alike from far away and it seems I have mixed them up.  This post I have quoted is actually Wingo, not the newbie(on post) and Hurricane (on green ledge).

So pretty much Hurricane has been back since April 2nd. ;)

RCF - was having a look at the photos and can see that both birds have breast speckles - and it looks like the speckles go up higher on Wingo than on Hurricane - is that the case?  Or is it just the way it looks in the photos?  They are very good photos :)

I  mixed up Wingo with the unbanded female, so then assumed Hurricane was Wingo.  ::) ;D

Okay ... yup, going to have to go back and look at all the photos again 🤣
Will get back to you again if I still have questions!
Thanks RCF

So happy to hear it is indeed Hurricane. Since I came aboard, she is the only falcon who has remained and returned to claim their domain.  ;D

Well this is excellent news!  Well done RCF!

I'm having the same problem with Ella and Pip - they look a bit different but they are so close in size that its taking a bit of time to get good a identifying them as they bomb past the camera or have their tail feathers obscuring the balcony cam!

Still the same two birds here, doing what they do.  ;)   The newbie had a Meadowlark this afternoon....not sure if she caught it or Wingo brought it for her. He did have messy beak so he probably got it for her.

Such great news! I hope the other female realized she was trespassing & moved on without incident!  :)

Welcome home Hurricane  :-* :-* :-*  You must be relieved RCF!  Hopefully the other female went peacefully and won't give her any grief!

Stay safe out there!

Well, I guess I should have waited for today to post! 

Hurricane is back!  Wingo brought her a food gift and she was very accommodating by showing me her band!  She's waving at all of you.  ;D

"tail-end"  ;D  like that   ;)

Seems like all the boys are in a hurry - Hart's been working it since he got back in town and Pip has been working to catch up!

Yes, Hurricane better hurry up if she's coming home!   :)

Well, Wingo was not wasting any time, he and the newbie mated this morning. I believe he was trying to get her into the nest box.  I caught the tail end of the shenanagans with my camera.  ;D
