Interesting. I saw the same scenario earlier in the day, although no sunset. This was at 10:40 in the morning.

Good to know, I am either running past there in the very early morning or at dusk. I guess there's a good breeze up there in the summer and a last little bit of warmth in the autumn..or maybe they just enjoy a good sunset. I've been on the top floor of that building and the view is breathtaking. You really get a sense of how green Winnipeg really is.

Glad to hear your hacked birds are doing well.

they all seem to leave at different times but I think the hacked birds leave earlier. I have seen that here in the last 2 years, with our hacked birds.

some of our young ones in other years have left in mid august and some have stayed till 3rd week in sept. They go when their inner time clock tells them.  We were corrie when one of ours left so earlier a few years ago but he was spotted along the migration path by a bird watcher and band number was verified by Gord.

One of the West Winnipeg girls just made a trip into the US but was only there for the day before returning north of the border and I believe back to her sister near Lake Winnipeg ...

Hmmm... interesting. So, as long as any of the WW fledglings continue to show up at the hack site, they'll continue to be fed, even if they have learned to hunt for themselves? :-\
