My husband and I were out on our scooters this afternoon, taking in the sun and having a snack. On the way home at about 3:45 we swung by the nest building (is that the B&B?) and saw one of the peregrines scanning the area from their usual ledge. Suddenly it took off, then we saw two peregrines circling the skies and one was very high up. While the peregrine was perched my husband waved at it, he does humor me alot.

Went for a drive at 5:30 after work, swung by the Dinner and spotted one of the birds, then swung by the bleachers and spotted the other. Did a little shopping then swung by the two spots again just before 7:30. They were in the same spots as before and seemed to have little concern about the snow coming down.

Beau and Jules are currently hanging out at the site Jules tried to nest on in 2009 and where she lost all her eggs.  We do have a nestsite nearby so we are positive yet if they are seriously considering the site or just hanging out there because its pretty sheltered from the wind.  We hope they aren't seriously considering it of course, so we'll be keeping and extra close eye on them for the next little while ...

Fledge watch won't be near as nice if that's what they decide.

Fledge watch will not be nice at all if they chose a site other than the one they were at last year.  I sure hope they change their minds and get back to the good nest box.

Beau and Jules:

Don't make me come down there and give you two a talking to!  That will NOT be pretty!

Hmm, the print is not coming out too clearly:

Translation:

Beau (or Mr X)    "Well, Jules, what do you think?"
Jules    "Last year I had a penthouse.....you want me to have this....Perhaps we will keep looking!"

Hahaha! Perfect captioning! Jules is right, the place is a dump. Move on.

It does amaze me though how they would go there with what I think ought to be numerous other options in the city. Surely Beau (or Mr. X) would not even know of that place's existence, so I'd think Jules would have to have been the one who led him there. It's all so interesting.

Either Beau or Jules was camped out on the Diner (think it was Beau) when I went past early this morning, but s/he was gone by 9-9:30 when Dennis checked.  Didn't see their significant other anywhere, but that might just mean they were off getting breakfast ...

Much better image, thanks, Dennis!  We can only hope that the point is taken!

I was by the west wpg area very early today and no sight of the birds in either the 2009 site or the diner.
