Thank you for your blog on Beatrix, TPC. I know how much she meant to the Project, and I'm so sorry for your loss; my thoughts are with you and Dennis.

Beatrix leaves me with many fond memories. Thank you to those who have shared their photos and videos. I will always remember when Beatrix was rescued from the bottom of a smokestack in Winnipeg, and Iíll remember the gentle way that Kathy Rogers handled her and tried everything she could to ease her stress; they seemed to have a special connection.

Iím very saddened to hear that it had to end this way for our Beatrix. Thank you to Prairie Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre and to everyone who tried their best to help her.

I felt it was very thoughtful of Scott to mention their concern for us as we struggled through our deep freeze, and Iím confident that many FalconCam Project fans were thinking of the folks in and around Orange during the extreme heat in New South Wales (earlier in January).

We're getting to know such nice people - from far and near - through our interest in bird cams.

There is a new female on site TPC...there may be more to the story of Charity's collision than we'll ever know given how comfortable she appeared on cam with Mintaka.

Hmm sounds familiar - we don't know what happened to Joli and we'll never know I'm afraid.  Watching the cam at Logan the last birds we saw there were not Joli or Princess or Faith who had a dust up with Joli in tre Spring.  We could tell who the female was but she was making herself comfortable in the nestbox and with a male - again not someone we could ID - maybe next Spring.

Well I'm sorry Charity's loss.  Hopefully the new female will be a worthy successor.

2017/18 was a hard year on nesting adults - particularly females.  It may be that we really find out how hard in another couple of months when the birds return/have returned.  Fingers crossed that Mintaka will a) return and b) find a lady friend.

We may not know Charity's parentage but we do Mintaka's - neat that we can get back to the captive-breeding program birds on both the Canadian & US side.

Mintaka
son of 19K & Alley (Lincoln)
grandson of Trey & Princess (Radisson), US breeding program pair
great-grandson of T-Rex & Madame (Radisson), Lightning & Marie (Minneapolis), 2 US breeding program pairs
great-great-grandson of Pop & Maud (Radisson), 2 US breeding program pairs
great-great-great-grandson of Keet & Jessie (CWS), Billy-Rae & MF-1 (Minneapolis), 1 US breeding pair
great-great-great-great-grandson of 1 US breeding prgram pair (parents of MF-1) and Cdn (SK) breeding program pair (parents of Billy-Rae)
