Thanks Carly. I am just missing her. She is there now. Hopefully she will resume expanding the clutch.

She was there yesterday and was there at 8.55 am this morning.  BCAW keeps good track of her as she's a fan favorite.  I just saw the photos of her in the nest box from today and yesterday.  You may just be missing her   Wink

Still only 2 eggs. I am concerned there is a problem. For most of yesterday, Durand was "not" in the nest, nor on the ledge. This is still the concern this morning. No bird is visible on either cam.  Huh

The 1st egg was evident this morning. Judging by her behavior yesterday, there was little doubt this would happen overnight at the latest.

I hope that Terminator and Marv will have another very successful year.

Band confirms it: Terminator's back in town

By Brad Dokken Today at 3:52 p.m.

Just like the infamous "I'll be back" line from the "Terminator" movies, the female peregrine by the same name is back in Grand Forks for another nesting season.

Grand Forks birding authority and avid photographer Dave Lambeth got a confirmation on Terminator's band number Friday. The photos weren't clear enough to run in print, Lambeth said, but they clearly show the "T over 2" band number that confirms her identity.

Terminator, first spotted Thursday by the UND water tower, has been the matriarch of Grand Forks' peregrine clan since 2008. This will be her 10th nesting season in Grand Forks. She nested the first couple of years atop the old Smiley water tower but moved to the UND water tower after Smiley came down, and the nest box was moved.

This year's return was Terminator's earliest to date, said Tim Driscoll, local raptor expert and licensed bander who keeps track of such things. Last year, Terminator returned March 24, a day later than this year, he said.

Marv, the female's mate since 2014, returned a few days earlier. Peregrines don't migrate together but return to the same mating sites each spring.

Driscoll said he saw the pair copulating Sunday.

"I'm thrilled," he said. "This is year No. 10. He's back, she's back and they both know the drill."

Hatched in 2006 in Brandon, Man., Terminator got her name from the "T2" band number. The movie "Terminator 2" widely was known as "T2," for short.

Terminator has had four chicks each of the past two years.

"She's fine, and she looks healthy," Driscoll said.

Hatched in 2013 in Fargo, Marv is named after Fargo TV personality Marv Bossart, who died that same year.

Thank you for the confirmation, TPC! Glad to know Terminator is back for her tenth year in Grand Forks.
