Here is hoping that when they do come back next year , they pick the better site to nest at, but they do what they please, as we have all found out over the years. But sometimes they can be persuaded.

Thanks for all that was done here to try and make it successful.  :-*

Now that I think I know where to look ( ???) I believe I saw a bird on the "T" this afternoon - just before 5:00.  Of course, I had no idea who it was, as I was driving in rush hour traffic, but I really think I saw somebody and it was very exciting.  Might have been wishful thinking  :-\

Glad you're all seeing PFs on letters!  :)  There's been no action on the J and R this year.  The difference between Trey and Ivy, I guess. Rats!

Not entirely "rats", if Ivy keeps pushing Princess to nest in the nestbox, the Hydro sign (his favourite perch) is fine with me  :D ;)

A fairly large "femaley" looking PF was sitting on the east facing "P" this morning at about 0840h, watching the sun come up and basking in its glory!

Spotted Jules on the "U" around noon today, on my way out to Oak Hammock Marsh. Was thrilled to see her, as this is the first time I've seen her this year! :D 8)

Somebirdy on the "p" facing east this morning at 7:25 a.m., greedily smorging breakfast.

After days of not seeing anyone in West Winnipeg and thinking that everyone had headed out, I'm pretty sure I saw Jules at the Lookout.  It looked to be a female and I haven't seen Princess for a couple of weeks now and the Lookout is one of Jules' regular spots.  Couldn't see anyone at the Diner so she too could be holding down the fort like Hurricane and Ivy ...

Saturday, November 19, 2011 at 10:15 a.m., birdy sitting on the "e" facing west. I kid you not! Kind of dirty/oatmealy coloured breast. Traffic lights wouldn't cooperate to give me a red, but I had a good look (much to the annoyance of the guy behind me no doubt as I slowed to a crawl to rubber-neck).

You've had some great sightings, Cooper!  I'm very envious!  And happy to be hearing about birds that are still around!

Wow! That's amazing, Cooper! :o What great spotting! I have looked there a few times in the past few weeks but have not seen any birds at all. I thought for sure they had all migrated. I wonder if it's the same bird that you and TPC have spotted downtown lately? :-\

I pass by at least twice a day and this is the first time I've seen anyone there in ages. No idea who it was. Maybe someone just passing through, but it sure makes me wonder how the birds know to go to these spots familiar to us.

That sounds like the black/green banded female who's been at the Radisson - the one I think is Sandy (she's not cooperating to confirm its still her).  Her breast right now has this rusty coloured wash over the white feathers, makes it look a light brown, though oatmealy is actually more accurate!

I think we go to the spots that look good to falcons...
