West Winnipeg - 2010 / Beau & Jules
« on: March 08, 2010, 20:10 »
I really hope that someone can keep me updated on this pair.  I loved watching them every single day.  It sure was a treat to be able to just sit back and watch these raptors own the sky.....oh sigh.

Dennis & I were roaming in West Winnipeg today, but all was quiet in all the peregrine haunts out that way.  The air was clear and sunny so had they been around we would have had wonderful photos!  Well, maybe soon ....

Oh sigh!  Can't wait for photos since I can't be there on the lookout!  And yet I give another sigh!

First kid home looks to be Jules (one band, didn't look coloured, right leg).  Spotted at 1145 hrs today on the Diner and I was back with a scope and camera within 10 minutes and Dennis arrived with his camera not long after when work happened to be in the area and he had a few minutes before his next client.  Light was flat, we were looking into the sun so no fantastic shots, just enough to start narrowing down the field.  Bird flew off to the nestsite (almost lost sight of it as a result) and then back again echupping for his/her mate.  Sat quietly, head swivelling for the next couple of hours before settling down for "the long wait".  We'll be back out from time to time to keep an eye on who and when and where.

Couple of new photos posted on the Project Gallery and I'm sure, Dennis will have more posted sometime in the next day or two.

HAHA, good one bcbird....I'm guessing TPC's fingernails are just a tappin' away or all chewed up.

Now, I wonder how Dennis' shutter fingers are doing?  Is it an uncontrollable twitch there Dennis?   ;)
