Beau isn't home yet, but we have been able to identify the "boy" hanging out in West Winnipeg with Jules.  Before we get there, they are both at the Diner and the Bleachers but they aren't really hanging out together it seems to me.  Now that could change tomorrow, but my sense is that she is playing a little hard to get, perhaps giving Beau a bit more time to return much as Princess did in 2009 (in that case, Ivy bugged her for a week or more before Trey returned and drove him off).  The next week will probably "tell".

So our WW boy is Smiley from the last wild-hatch from the nestbox on the Smiley Tower in Grand Forks in 2009 (the tower was demolished).  He is the son of Terminator (Brandon) and Roosevelt (Fargo).  Terminator's mom Holly and Roosevelt are siblings.

Looking through his family tree, it looks like I can get back to the original captive-birds whose young were released in locations across Canada and the US Midwest which is kinda cool.  Also, there is a bird in common on both the US and Canadian trees - MF-1 the resident female in Minneapolis - she turns out to be both his third and fourth great grandmother.  Kinda cool.

Next thing to look up is the geographic locations of his ancestors - know we have Manitoba, North Dakota and Minnesota but I think we have a couple of others in the mix as well ... more on that when I get it ...

Question - Smiley has a sister Alice correct.  :-\   Would Alice be the same Alice that was at the Towers in Brandon with Zeus in 2011?   ???
