West Winnipeg - 2011 / Beau & Jules
« on: March 17, 2011, 07:37 »
No idea if it is a resident bird or if Sandy from the Radisson is having a wander, but there is a peregrine perched on the corner of the building right beside last year's nestbox.

Dennis - does Wowzer need to get out for a walk yet??  ;)

Maybe we need to hear from the illusive "West Winnipeg Poster".  ;)

Looking at the timing, looks like WW birdie was Sandy inspecting our other nestboxes ... she disappeared from the WW nestsite and reappeared at the Radisson within a couple of minutes.

So no new birds in Winnipeg it looks like ... but remember, we are still two or more weeks early ...

Saw somebirdy around 2:20 on the R - east side of the Radisson- nasty wind, too!
Checked around the West Nest right after - no sign of anybirdy - but couldn't see into the nest and it was very windy!
Warm sunny weather needed!
Must be great to have those 2 cams, TPC!

Well Pam and I have a story to tell...after checking downtown and heading from A to B by way of Z...I spot a bird in West Winnipeg. Call in to my eyes in the glass tower to she what Pam has seen...nothing was the report  :( Then explain that I had a bird in the west...most likely Sandy checking things out  ???
About and hour later Pam calls and is watching Sandy/we think having lunch...since it's about coffee break time I tell Pam I will call her back.
A few minutes later I put a call into the glass tower...do you a bird I ask, Pam's reply was yes  :D
Dennis's reply was...so do I  :D
We have TWO BIRDS...thank heaven for cell phones  ;D
Thanks for your help Pam

Took the little one tobogonogoning for one more time after skool and spoted, I'm sure anyway, 2, yes 2, rather peregrinish boids riding the breeze around the westnest spot, exibiting all the traits of a berd that makes the rules.  Could I be wrong....... a small chance.  Am I ?  I doubt it .......
