Dennis always has an uncontrollable twitch in his shutter finger.

Dennis has been scrutinizing his photos from today and yes, it is Jules who's home first!

Well, this is a good thing in my opinion.

Jules has come back to her territory....this is awesome!  Now, we wait for Ivy as this is also his territory to share with his mate. 

And so we sit and we wait......is he back yet?   ::)

Went for a little drive today, and there she was, sitting very prettily on one of her favourite spots. Got some pictures, but they need some cropping, and Dennis' shots are way better than mine.
Check the Radisson thread for what else I saw ;D ;D

Well, this is exciting also.  I hope that means Alberta falcons are on their way.

Dennis has been watching Jules in the West Winnipeg territory, she's still by herself but very attached to the location so hopefully her mate will be back soon and she can hopefully be more successful this year.

Just a note on this location, we are going to install a second nestbox on a building in this territory in the hopes that this pair will move from the spot they tried last year.  Don't have any schedule on that but we will keep you in the loop.  However, we will not be providing location information unless they move to the new location ... so keep your fingers crossed!

No sign or sound of Jules today in West Winnipeg but that's not too unusual at this time of the year.  She's here by herself for the moment so she might be taking advantage of the amazing weather - sunny, warm and very little wind - to find herself some more interesting (more interesting than pigeon) food a wee bit further way.  We went by all their favourite West Winnipeg haunts twice (at different times) but no sign of her.  I should mention that it does look like she has visited the nestbox installed a couple of years ago in the area ... hopefully this is a good sign ...

Ivy's home but he's not where he's suppose to be ... he's annoying his mother downtown ...

If Princess accepts him, Jules will hopefully find another mate this year - there are usually birds flying through/by so not an impossibility.

If Princess doesn't accept him and manages to hold her territory until Trey or another male turns up, then Ivy would probably end up back out west with Jules.

If Ivy and Jules decide they want the downtown territory, they will have to force Princess out and hope Trey doesn't return.


Such a peaceful time is Spring ...
