That's really interesting. I don't remember hearing anything about them last year, but wouldn't it be great if they decided to become a permanent fixture in Regina!

My friend just moved to Regina.  His neighbour told him there were Peregrines nesting at City Hall.  I thought she was refering to the ones a few years back but maybe she is talking about this year.  I'll have to look close next time I'm there.

Looking forward to hearing what you find out, postive or negative.  Could be a good reason to go to Regina :)

This is great news! Thanks for posting the news clip, Donna. :D So now I am wondering, TPC, if there have been peregrine falcons in Regina in past years and if there used to be a nestbox, why is there no longer a nestbox there? ??? Sounds as if there may be a resident pair who may really want to nest there on City Hall.

The birds have been absent for a number of years so it could be that the old nest was removed because it was just getting too old or was in a state of disrepair.  Or work might have been needed on the building and the box needed to moved/removed to do it.  Or the box is still there but the birds haven't found it or don't like it enough to use it.  Hopefully I will have more information soon.

Was downtown yesterday and stopped to look up and around. 
Unfortunately, I didn't see anything but pigeons.  ::)
I will be back out today!

I've been going by City Hall, on purpose, to see if I can spot anything different than pigeons....no such luck!
