Excitement doesn't begin to describe it.  Will be heading down town after work tomorrow.  Better remember to stow the binos in the bag to take to work.  ;)

That and a camera! 
More Manitoba falcons....woot woot!

Thanks allikat,
I will take the camera, but my pics are nowhere near the calibre of Dennis' photos.   :'(
Don't know if I will be able to get close enough for photos, but people will be looking at me funny as I gaze up at the side of the building.  :o
Will keep you updated as much as I can.

They better get used to it. Soon, soon there will be thousands of us staring up into the sky. Falcon watchers are taking over the world. (Who keeps posting the evil laugh, Muah ha ha ha! or something like that)

Who me ?   (** bats eyes innocently**)....  I may do the 'muhhhaaaaa' evil laugh but there is a very distinct ECHO of it here that sounds suspiciously like CARLY..  ;)   ( ** covers mouth with hand to muffle the 'muhaaaahahha'**)...     ;D

Why is it when you aren't lookin' for 'em they show up????
Went downtown specifically to get a good look at our beauties only to have people lookin' at me like I was some kinda nutball.  Even had a bus driver get off his bus and ask what we were looking at?  That was good, did a little edjamacating about peregrines.  (He was kinda cute too  ;))
I was on the south and east sides of the building and wasn't having much luck.  Could only see one of them with it's back to me while it was eating.  Couldn't see the other at all.  Until it soared past chasing a winged rat, then disappeared again.  :(
When I went to the bus terminal, I spotted them on the north side of the building, but those darned buses kept getting in my way.  The nerve of some people.
Will be heading back tomorrow but will go a little later in the day so that maybe they will have finished their lunch by the time I get there.
Will keep you posted.
Have a great evening.

Alas, not much joy today.   :'(
It is extremely windy here so I think they were just trying to cling on to anything that wasn't moving.
Of course, I did get to see them doing a few flybys BEFORE I reached the downtown.  Then, when I got there the both disappeared.  For a very short while one was in the nest box, so that's a good sign.
Might try to get back downtown this evening and see if anything is happening.

Was coming back through the Brandon area on Friday but couldn't make a stop this time I'm afraid.  Will see when I can fit in a trip in the near future, and hopefully (finally get to) see some of our Brandon Phanatics!  As well as the peregrines of course!!

Haven't heard from our man Dan in Brandon that he has managed to get IDs on the birds, but when I do, I will most certainly post it here first!

Good Morning,
I haven't been able to get downtown lately either, but I will make a valiant effort to go there this afternoon (there are no buses on Sunday and can have the whole bus terminal to myself LOL).
Will report back what I find.
Hope everyone has a great day.
