Some birdie Jodi ?? was sitting on the "r" in research last night at 5:00ish.  The letter is right at the edge of the building.  Last year Cowboy liked sitting on the letters more in the middle of the name.  Or the cover on the letter "J' in John was broken last October and has not been repaired, so maybe they don't like the brightness.

This morning a very white breasted bird is sitting on the rooftop above the letters, basking in the sun.

Lots and lots of whitewash spots on the ground below.  Their location is also different then last year's art work.  Last year they were on the ground in front of the east facing wall, this year they are around the corner, on the south facing wall and farther out.  From Dennis's picture, that red rail projects out onto the sidewalk much farther than the letters do.  Look out down below...this is the spot where the smokers go for their smoke because there is an hot air vent on that south facing wall.

Maybe they will get the hint to stop......................well maybe in that location anyway.  :D

I just came out of the Manitoba Clinic and heard the familiar screeching above. I looked up and a PF did a couple of circles of the power building and headed over to Buhler. Once I crossed Notre Dame, I could see 2 PF's flying beautifully, really fast, dipping and weaving closer to the Children's side of HSC. What a treat!

Yes it was a treat. It makes me envy all those downtowners who are able to watch from their offices every day.

Last night at 4:00ish, some birdie landed on the "r" in research with lunch in his claws.
He enjoyed his supper and sent feathers flying everywhere. 

This morning the rain let up a bit and some birdie was sitting on the roof of the Buhler building right above the letters on the east side.

Some birdie needs his mother to come clean up after him: 

Dead whole pigeon lying in the street - must have dropped it in flight.
Wing bits lying out in front of the Buhler building.
A white shore bird with dark brown spots half eaten on the ground below the east facing letters - made a day trip to Oak Hammock Marsh??

I know what you mean birdnut. I see all sorts of dead birdie parts and whole dead birds at the McKenzie site.  Lots of shore birds........not many pigeons though.  :)

Nope, not a day trip. ;)

Last year (on August 4) TPC posted this on the Radisson forum:
Quote
Oak Hammock Marsh is about a one hour drive from the Radisson Hotel, but only about a 5-10 minute flight for the birds (straight line).  It's north of the City, about 20 minutes from the City limits and is the last remnant of the old St Andrews Bog.

That's why TPC always says they have large territories.
