We haven't been able to access the site we suspect they are using but when we do, our plan is to set up a camera to keep an eye on them again this year.  And yes, we do have all the tech prepped and ready to go. 

... We are ?
Do you know something I don't ?

Pay no attention folks, Eye-spy's creative mind has already been working on solutions for WW.  ::)

These two are still giving us grief but we think they have perhaps started laying so we may have news on where and how many soon!

He was back last night for some time perched on the building... then off...might have been back back but it got too dark for me to see. Saw one briefly on the building this morning, then flying around for a bit...

Drove by this evening, Beau (I think) was on the railing.

The short time I was home last night didn't see them at all... but I saw them both briefly on the building this morning around 6:40am I don't know what that means for incubating? Maybe taking a break... wasn't very long though, looked out the window 2 minutes later and only one was there....

Yup, these two are our problem children this year ... they just don't seem to be settling down to do what they need to ...  :-\

Have no idea what Beau and Jules were up to today but at about 1530 they were soaring around the Diner and then they disappeared to the west.

At about 5:30 my husband and I swung by the bleachers to see if the peregrines were there. As we got close one falcon flew overhead and landed on the usual rail next to the other falcon. I finally got to see both Beau and Jules in a way that I could compare sizes.

They were talking to each other for a minute, when Beau then hopped/dropped to the floor of the balcony they were at. Unfortunately since we had ice cream melting in the car we couldn't hang around to watch any further. ???

Always carry spoons and a thermos of coffee in case of such emergencies!

During the worst of the 4:00ish rain, there was one pergrine on the diner.

Around 10:00 this morning,  one sentry on the north west corner of the diner.  Watched for awhile.  After a few minutes somebirdy took off and did a cruise/patrol toward ( relatively low) then up and around the bleachers.  Returned to sentry duty, then repeated all this about 5? minutes later.  I may be off on the wait time between the fly-bys, but it really didn't seem that long.
Checking on something perhaps??
