Thank you for the update on Paden, TPC!  Fly high and stay safe little guy!  Thanks to everyone who helped him recover.

It's been kind of wet here the last few days, so probably not great migration weather either. I am sure you got enough of your own rain in Winnipeg!  Anyway,  I saw two very wet chicks and Wingo yesterday. Hurricane and Wingo were both home today....I saw no chicks today.

Thank you for the beautiful photos and updates from Brandon, RCF!

Wingo is an especially striking male, and I hope to eventually see if he retains his speckles in future years.  :)

Sept 25, 2019

Very early Monday morning I saw four falcons on the McKenzie building, one on each light.  Today Hurricane, Wingo and one chick are still here. I am a bit surprised the chick is still here though........ and Wingo for that matter. It's okay I like the view!

With a noticeable chill in the air, I guess their migration will happen soon.  :( Thanks again RCF for your amazing captures.  :-*

Well, it's October 1st and I am a little surprised there is a chick still here. Hurricane and Wingo are here also.  :)

 ;D I'm surprised to hear they are still here at this time, RCF. Surprised, but thankful. Their presence allows you to photograph them and share with us here in the forum. Thanks for sharing.  :-*

That may be good news. At least they weren't trying to migrate and potentially getting caught in the snow storms that moved through the western provinces and states.

Well, Wingo is still here this morning. 8)  I couldn't hazard a guess as to how long he will stay around. ???

 I haven't seen Hurricane since the 3rd of October, she left the same time as last year. No chicks to be seen since Oct 1st.

Wingo is still here!  I really thought he was gone and of course I did not take my camera today!  ::)  I took a photo with my phone.

Am I right, is that one of "his" perches?
Every bird has different places they like to sit ...

Yes, on the south side of the McKenzie building. I believe this would be the supporting post for the decorative ledge which was removed because it was falling apart. Wingo and Hurricane have perched here, also chicks and parents all perched on the north side post.

 He didn't stay there, he flew off to the west towards the Scotia building last I saw him.  :)
