They didn't show up until April 5th last year, so I imagine it won't be much different this year.  ;)

Is it possible all the rain and flooding last year had any bearing on the date they arrived? So far this year our problem seems to be wind, wind and more wind.  ::)

2011 was late for Cowboy and Kate who ultimated didn't have a successful nest and Alice & Zeus were held up for a month, not so much because of the flooding, which hadn't happened by this point but rather that there was snow and prey species were slow to move north.  Although Alice ended up in Brandon, she had spent the previous year in Winnipeg and Zeus would know where to find food anywhere in this province after 16 years, and Kate and Cowboy aren't residents, so they found food and weren't moving until more food was on the way.

This year, not so much snow, I would think that end of the month is a pretty good guess - particularly since Jules is back pretty much on her regular schedule, particularly with all the prey species turning up very fast in places like Fort Whyte and Oak Hammock Marsh. 

But that's just my impression, we'll have to see what you and Rose and others out in Brandon see when the times come ....  ;)

Fantastic news, Rose -- I gather this is early for the return to Brandon -- spring fever is apparently affecting all of us!

Fantastic. I foresee a bunch of parkade lurking. ;D
Maybe a trip out there next week to snap some photos of the birdies?

I saw a peregrine today around 4pm.   :)   I didn't have a very good look since I was in a moving vehicle and it was flying in the other direction.  On the way home this evening I checked the McKenzie building and there were pigeons on the roof and in the nest box.........no peregrine.  :(

Patience RCF. If the peregrine is there, the pigeons will not be long for this world. ;D
