And poop on Ivy, I'm really not liking him very much >:(

Awww..come on bccs, you gotta admit he's quite a handsome youngster .  Maybe he's just a bit of a mamma's boy  :P


Ya Carly, maybe we should change his name to Oedipus, silly silly bird.  :P :P
Go back to a non-related female that is waiting for you. >:(

Same goes for me on that comment....as B has written before, maybe Princess knows something we don't!

Oh, do like him, he's survived all these years, is on mate number 3 and he's still returning to the city ... we do need young boys to come home otherwise there is the real possibility that we will lose our family line.  We have never had a Manitoba female at the Raidsson, Jules is from we don't know where.  Hurricane and Phoebe are the only Manitoba hatched females to return in the province and be successful nesting.  Our boys are few and far between - there are no Manitoba males, other than the ones here in Manitoba, that we know about ... so do like him, he's in a rare and select company!

I agree TPC, most sites have falcons they never knew growing up so it's kind of exciting and unique that this one has stayed in the family so far.  Just another way of looking at it  :-*

I know how you feel bccs, I cursed Jack daily for months ...lol..but at the end of the day he's hard wired to reproduce and not much I can do about that..lol  ;)

And lest we forget, Ivy is hardwired too. He's even imitating his great Trey genes. Remember Madame!  :-[

Poor birds, probably the only thing in their heads is, empty stomach - hunt, yen to build a scrape - search...

Now if only his higness would remember his way home, we could settle down and wait for the next crisis.

Spoke with Dennis a bit earlier and he was passing by the West Winnipeg site and no sign of Jules.  I didn't see her either this morning or yesterday morning on my way to work.  Could be that she is taking a little extra time to go hunting during the day or going further afield to hunt as she doesn't have a "man" waiting for her back on territory.

Do I think she is leaving? No.  Just that she's off somewhere hunting or whatever.  Without a male she's not in find a nest, lay some eggs mode, but its still her territory and she's been there for two years, so no reason to immediately assume that because Ivy has been downtown for a week that she will be looking for greener pastures already ....

Was heading north on Route 90 this morning and there were two peregrines in West Winnipeg - usual spots on the Diner.  Couldn't tell and unfortunately couldn't stop to identify who they were but it could be someone new or it could be someone old come a'visiting ....  ;)
