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.


Has Smiley had any ummm 'relationships' in the past that have been tracked?

Well, well, well....

Even if Beau isn't back, yet, this new man is quite the looker!!!  Good taste Jules!

C'mon Beau!  You're lady is waiting..., not for long though!
HMMMMM, perhaps she is following Ivy's behaviour and loving what is there??
Jules, we're with ya fine lady. ;D

Perhaps he is scouting out Ivy's territory?

Lately, the boys seem to seek a familial partner  :o

No record of any past relationships - but he is only three, so unlikely that he would have had any, usually peregrines are two+ when they find their first mate.  Not always, of course but mostly.

Last evening I saw a bird sitting on one of the corner's of the building they nested on in 2010.  He/She sat there for quite a while.

Really?  Hmmm, the 2010 building is still off-limits because of construction/repairs but it is good to know they haven't forgotten their best location ...

Last time I was by the building I didn't actually notice and construction.  Could they be done?  Or am I totally blind

On Saturday close to 10:15 A.M., I was driving north on Kenaston approaching the St. James bridge. I saw a bird doing short circles. It landed on a light standard and sat tall and proud. As I drove under it, I certainly saw a peregrine.  ;D  Sadly I only glanced briefly, safety first. In agreement with msdolittle, I do not see any sign of construction at their 2010 site.

Last time I was there they still had the lift-stages hanging on two sides of the roof and the time before there were actually guys working in them (that is not a common sight!).  But I will have to take a run by today if I can in case they have managed to finish - last I heard from the building management company they thought the work would take another summer.

Will let you all know what I find out .... keep your fingers crossed!

When I saw the bird it was in the evening.  No one would have been working there at that time.
