So sad to read about the fire. Especially on Christmas Eve.  :( Fortunately, no injuries, no tragedies. No PF's.

Merry Christmas TCP, Dennis and all of you here on the  MFCF.

Everyone is gone! I haven't seen a falcon around here since seeing Wingo on October 9th. Safe Travels!  :-*

Thanks for all the updates this year. Love all the photos!

Thanks Dupre

Here is Wingo at 9:30 this morning, he didn't look like he was going anywhere yet!

I saw Hurricane yesterday but not today. She usually leaves about this time so she's probably gone. Wingo is still here though, he stayed this long last year. I saw him on the south light at 5pm today.

Hurricane is still here but not sure about Wingo, the last time I saw him was September 26th.  I have not seen a chick since the last time I posted seeing one.  ???

Someone posted on Facebook that they saw and photographed a juvenile peregrine falcon near Killarney....maybe one of the chicks from here.   ;)

We haven't had a chick come to play for a few weeks now ... would be nice to see one or two or any out this way.  But it is that time of the year.


RCF - Question -  the last three of your most recent photos are of the chick that has been around - yes?

Yes, but both may still be here....who knows!

Will be interested to see when the adults leave - the Farmers Almanac is predicting a "snow train" across the Prairies (there was snow in the Pas in the last week) but don't know when - I kept missing that part of the story when it can on the radio!  Usually we have at least 1 bird around until mid-October, interesting to see if that happens again this year.

RCF - Question -  the last three of your most recent photos are of the chick that has been around - yes? Can't see a band on photo 1 and Wingo's bands looked to be in good shape last I saw them - and his plumage was starting to transition more to the adult colours ...

That's pretty cool! You don't get to see that everyday!  Lucky him!  :) 

One of the two chicks likes to perch on the corner of the museum building.
