radisson was 2 when she came to Edmonton. she had to fight for the nest.
she had one chick that first year ( 2 eggs) . she nested late. so all is possible
she has never looked  back
so fingers crossed.

I realize that I'm in denial and most certainly sentimental, but until there's reason to know otherwise, I'm going to believe that Princess is finished raising kids and is still down south, sipping on a martini and that the Challenger is simply another female after the prime real estate. ;)

Ella had a much shorter but very vigorous fight with Faith last year and in the end had just 1 of 4 viable eggs. Neither Faith nor Ella had any noticeable injuries or impairments yet having been with Hart for I believe more than a month, Faith who was no shy retiring female lost to Spencer who was not nearly her equal. I wasn't sure if at 2 years Fiona would nest successfully, it's a kind of grey period when they should be able to but don't or do but don't have viable eggs. Fiona is young based on her behaviour - she wasn't really interested in Pip's advances or wasn't responding as though she did. Maybe just a slow start as he has been very attentive. Now I wonder if she does lay eggs will they be viable ... and what will be her (and Pip's) response if they are non-viable.  Heck don't even know when we might have eggs - new pairings often take a bit longer at first.

All we can do is wait and see I guess ....😶

Congratulations Hurricane and RCF!!

Actually only a half-sister of Fiona - he's the offspring of Walsh (Terminator's & Roosevelt's in Grand Fork) and Susan from Bay State Milling in Winona, Minnesota (no info on her parentage immediately available).

I'm going to keep my fingers crossed for this pair as well. Wingo isn't yet a year old so it may well be that he is not mature enough to breed successfully - but the again maybe he is! Lots of juvenile markings on him (vertical striping on the breast being the most obvious).  Interestingly (or to me at least) only Alley (2004 Radisson) in Lincoln NE nested in her first year - so too did Holly (2003 Fargo) in Brandon, but we haven't had any males from Manitoba or nesting in Manitoba who did.  If Wingo can pull this off it will be one for our record book at least!! 😁

please do not think because one bird lost a nest box , it is doomed. this happened to Miss Edmonton twice. She went away and licked her wounds and healed and 2 years later, had her own site. Now if this  was Princess, I realize sh e is older but also wise enough  to know to leave and heal.
years ago in San Jose, Fernando came along and beat out older male. that male was spotted a few weeks later not far from campus  and he stayed there , out of harms way. He also went back to same spot the next year , out o f harms way. He seemed to know his time was up. He was now into retirement.

we had a male DO1 a t WEber, that we watched from  ground. He lost Weber site, but last year we found him at misercordia. He was n o spring chicken.

you do not know for sure who it was, but regardless, I saw 4 really bad fights in Edmonton last year. some appear worse than they are as  they  are on backs a lot with talons locked. WE have seen a few on cams , where people thought there must be one injured or deceased and two of these have turned up at other sites.
So the saying  , no news i s good news is just that. 
when viewing a cam, turn off sound when viewing a fight. Sound makes it  sound worse than it is.
talons crossed.
