Well, well, well!

Today, I logged on the hawkcount site.
I was so excited (but sad at the same time), when I saw a count from one location, observing 38 peregrine falcons migrating. 
Then, another location observed, 109 peregrine falcons.  WOW!!!!  To me, that's EXCELLENT NEWS for the peregrines! 

I love this site!   ;D
Alli, could you please post the link to the migration site.  I know I could try to find it from last spring but I have a hard time finding things here...took me forever to find the phanatic date thing yeserday.  Thanks  :)

HSC report:   another staff person saw a bird sitting on the rooftop of the JBRC Friday 8:00ish AM. He/she was fussing  alot: shaking their feet, flapping of wings, rocking from side to side.  Then all of a sudden just took off to the south at high speed.
I did not see any birds at all on Friday, on Sunday or this morning. 
Maybe he/she is gone.

Downtown:  I was downtown on Friday night at 6:00ish.  I saw a falcon soaring up  on the thermals just above the Manitoba Hydro building. It was quite windy and it was cool to see how effortless he/she was soaring. He/she disappeared to the north around the building. Then later it looked like some"bird" was sitting on the nesting box, but it was getting dark and hard to see.

Great photos of Luck, dennis! :D I especially love the 4th one from the left, at the top. Looks as if he/she's doing the "Hokey Pokey"! "You put your left foot in and shake it all about!"... LOL! 8)

I see them on the "John  Buhler Research Centre" sign over looking the old adult emergency parking lot off McDermot Ave.  If you drive approaching from the east and look way up, you can clearly see them.  The female likes the J and the male likes either R's in research.
I was outside 1/2 hour ago - a female whoever she is, was on the J.

Thank you sooo much for yesterday's note about the John Buhler Centre.  I will look there today!  I couldn't look Tuesday, but  Monday night I posted (with a Radisson note) that I seen one on an L shaped antenna by huge smoke stacks at hospital "Works/heating?" building  at 577 o5 677 Notre Dame.  Had a great look for at least 5 minutes then I left as it got dark.

A female(Sandy?) spent the morning on letter r at HSC this morning.  Just got back from a meeting at 12:15 and stood and watched her for awhile.  Pigeons flew by, but she just ignored them.  She took off and flew in the direction of downtown.

Nope, that's Luck ...  :) see Fall Migration - 2010

I did drive-by's at the sites I have seen peregrines this afternoon - no luck.
Where have you all seen birds  at HSC - exactly - I drove round and round - and wasn't even sure just where they have appeared there.
Help, please.

 It's great to hear that Trey and Princess's legacy is continuing to thrive like this!  Takes a lot of hutzpah to name a falcon 'Luck' too...I'd be worried about jinxing her...fortunately she's living up to her name  ;)

What a wonderful testament to your stewardship..congratulations Grandma....errr I guess Great Grandma now  :P
