A run by all the known locations and all I found was a "Lone" bird as Tracy had  said...retracing the steps this afternoon and didn't spot any birds. The good thing was that I didn't see anyone at the location that we didn't want them at.

Jules and Beau have been at the "Diner" off an on today ... a little sex, a little hunting ... think we might have another week before these two start working on eggs ... but we'll be keeping an eye on them just the same ...

we saw a peregrine flying around the place you folks don't want them to nest.  Not sure what you call the place.  Not too into the code names.  That was about 4:30

Its called "the Bleachers" MsD.  :)

And just for reference for folks from away, the Bleachers, the Diner and the B&B (where they nested last year) are all within a minute's flying time of one another ... we still don't like when they hang out at the Bleachers.

Driving down the road and I drove by a bird in the middle of the road.  Thought it was pigeon material, but then it was drving me nuts so I had to find a place to turn around and make sure it was pigeon.  It is...couple of wings worth anyway.

Drove by last year's nest site yesterday afternoon, no sightings but did ask a workman about work being done.  Window washers were at the highest windows on one side.  Apparently roofing had just finished on a nearby building, more roofing to be done on a larger flat-roofed area nearby, and bids were in for other buildings including nesting one.  Bidding to working takes time and owners have been co-operative, so just keeping you up to date on what a worker told me.

Yes bccs thanks for the update.  Did you yell at that bird to go back to the right place?
