So hard to find words to explain how we feel. Many of the falcons/chicks/eggs didn't have a chance this season.  :'(  I hope all have a successful migration and return to us next year.

 :o :'( OMG, Tracey.  So sorry to hear of yet more sad news!  It truly has been a very trying year for you, the Forum, and these lovely birds and their young ones.  Hoping next year will be better for all.

The very white breasted birdie was here at HSC again last night at 5:00 p.m.

Sorry to hear about Kate...will miss seeing her here at HSC.

Sure was hoping for Cowboy and Kate to "settle down" here but alas that is not to be.  So much happening accidentally to so many!  It is heartbreaking. Perhaps we will see cowboy again next year (he isn't so young either) and he will be with a new "woman".  Three nests in Winnipeg would be great..........especially for the ones doing the watching (us).  A lot of work for you TPC and Dennis and ES.

Some birdie was visiting HSC again at 8:15 last night on the east facing letters.

and two birds this morning at 9:30.... one birdie was on the roof and one was sitting on the letters facing south.

I wonder if Cowboy has a new gal pal, with his partner, Kate, gone now? ??? Or maybe the 2 birds are from the Radisson? :-\

Likely they are the Radisson birds, I would be surprised if Cowboy (if it is Cowboy) would have a girlfriend this fast - we don't have enough birds roaming through town here - more southern cities have more birds moving east/west, we don't.  Or it might be one of the fledglings ... don't think that if it is Cowboy he would see a juvenile as a threat - he doesn't have chicks to protect and hasn't had for months and a juvenile isn't particularly threatening to an 11 year-old adult male peregrine.

Now that the sun has passed overhead, one birdie was sitting on the east facing letters again at 3:00ish.  I was driving this time and was not able to see clearly, but it looked like the white breasted one from earlier this week.

The white breasted PF was hanging out here all last week.  Some staff saw he/her early in the morning(between 7-8).  I saw him/her every day but Wednesday on my way home (anywhere between 4:00 and 6:00 p.m.)

Could that be Ivy, TPC?
