McKenzie Seeds - 2010 / Brooklyn & Hurricane
« on: March 11, 2010, 16:37 »
Well, it was the right size, the right shape, and the right colouring for a peregrine. I am almost certain that I saw one on the top of the CanadInns at 4:00 pm today.  But, as I didn't have my binos with me, I am not going to say I am positive.
Guess where I am going tomorrow afternoon?

 ;D ;D ;D

I've been watching everyday for our falcon friends.  I work one block south of the Mckenzie building.  I am always disappointed to see the roof covered with pigeons, but probably not for long. As soon as the falcons return they will have to find somewhere else to roost.  Rose asks me everyday if I have seen them yet. So far the answer is not yet.  :(   I may have recruited a co-worker, she's been trying to find her binoculars  8)

Well, I saw a Merlin today.  So, does that mean another three weeks before we see the Peregrines back?

Hey BirdLover,

Is that like groundhog day,  ;D you know six more weeks of winter.  :)
I just keep seeing pigeons on the Mckenzie building no falcons yet.  I did see a bald eagle on thursday in Rapid City, so hopefully our falcons will be back soon. :)

Merlins sound promising, BirdLover! :D

Question for Tracy,  Do you know, when roughly the Brandon Peregrines usually return in the spring or when they have returned in the past?  I have been looking everyday and have been checking all their little stash spots (the S on the scotia bank building and the spot under the black/green ledge).  So far I have not seen any.  :(

Any time now RCF - they usually nest a week behind the Radisson bird but no real worries if they don't return right away.  The Fargo birds usually nest a month before our birds and the pair were just reunited late last week/early this week, so we still have lots of time.  By the end of April I would be concerned that no one was coming back ... does that help?

Yes, Thank you Tracy, but I sure hope they return soon, getting anxious  ::)  Maybe a little jealous because they are back in Winnipeg.

Will have to leave Peregrine spotting up to Rose and RCMF as I am away for Spring Break.  Hope to see the kids when I get back.  Y'all have a great weekend!

Falcon alert! Just back from parkade (rbc phoned and told me to get my butt down there PDQ) One very pretty bird on the mts tower preening herself, I say she because this falcon looked to be a good size,so don't think it was Hurricane and not silvery like Zeus.So who might it be? If we had better binocs might have been able to read the bands because she lifted her legs to clean them. Then she flew off to the south. Will check back later today.

As long as it's not Trey, sightseeing around the province rather than showing up here in Winnipeg! Great way to get the day started, Rose -- and it's good to hear that somebody's back in Brandon.
