Here's our first note from our West Winnipeg Watcher ...

Hello again!

I have been absent from the forum so far this year (2011) due to some family medical issues.  This time it was my father; just about lost him in Feb but he somehow managed to pull through.  Prognosis is not great - 6 months to a year - but hopefully we can extend that.  I don't know how I would manage any more grief after having lost my beloved Musska last fall.

I also do taxes every year, so I am mostly away from work until after April 30th.  However, I did stop by my business today and had a look out the back door.  I'm sure that you are aware that we have at least one bird here so far.  I waited around for quite a while looking for #2 but no luck. 

I will not be here much over the next month, however after that I plan to be active on the forum again this year, and will be happy to help out with fledge watch duties when the time comes. 

Until then, sorry for my long absense, sorry for my next month of absense - (Yes, I do miss everyone!).  Looking forward to a happy and healthy nest full of falcons again this year!

Yes, Eye-Spy has kept the cams going at the West Winnipeg site all winter.  And yes, she really was there this morning - I was watching on the cam, Dennis was watching her from his truck as he drove past.

Hmmm...good thing that someone hasn't disconnected the modem or Eye-Spy didn't need a pc or recorder...lol

Has any male appeared in the West Winnipeg area yet?

Nope, not so far.  Just Jules hanging out at the B&B and the Diner and at a "new" location a long way north which we will call the "crow's nest".    Despite its name, its not suitable for a peregrine (or any other kind of bird) nest on.  She likes it I think because she can see a long way from it when hunting.

We are only now at the time that most of the Manitoba peregrines return, so no worries if it takes another week for Beau to return.  In fact, Beau was the last bird to arrive last year and they did just fine in the end.

TPC, from last year's post you were still trying to read the numbers on Jules band to find out her background.
Did you have any luck or is that Wowser's job this year? ???
