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

That is so very true!! ;D

No peregrines at the McKenzie building yet, but as soon as they get back these pigeons will have to congregate elsewhere or become lunch.

Hurrah!! Hurrah!!   ;D ;D

I saw falcon on the east light of the McKenzie building at 2pm today. I took some photos and I am sure it is Hurricane.  The first pic is her giving me the evil eye.  ::)

Rcf was so excited that all she had to say was "Hurricane Hold Your Leg Up" and Hurricane did! :)

 Just got back from the parking lot south of McK's,spent about 45 mins.there. When I got there didn't see any birdie but 5 mins later our lady flew up to the west light but flew off low to the south and was soon back to the east light, then she flew off again same direction this time yelling and yelling and circling around to the south. I finally could see see what's going on. She was attacking a Raven, the Raven finally flew down to the roof of the building just to the west of where I was. She kept dive bombing it until it finally got down on the fire escape of that building where she coudn't launch a full scale attack, it also was calling but it seemed distressed and every time it would make a move she would dive at it again and yell. She finally flew up to the very top of the communications tower and watched, I guess you could say it was a stand off, she stayed on the tower and the Raven stayed on the fire escape.That,s how I left them.
 RCF noticed a week or so ago that there was a large nest of sticks on a small fire escape catwalk on the west side of the Mck Bld about 6 or 7 stories up so I guess that's where the Raven is from and Hurricane want's it gone.

I was in Brandon this afternoon and didn't see the Raven. The Raven's nest is on the west side of the McK bldg up on fire escape and would be about the same level as the lower roof on the east side.  I am surprised that nobody has removed it.  ???

Hurricane must have chased the raven away because she was perched on the letter S on the west side of the Scotia bank building which is facing away from the McKenzie building.  She was doing a lot of preening.  :)

That's a fair sized nest the ravens have built. Hopefully it will be removed so they won't be tempted to come back. Although I expect Hurricane will be after them if they do.  ;)
