Sounds like a long coffee break. ;D Wish I'd had breaks like that when I worked!

My contact with Smiley was very short ( March 21st ) for a couple hrs...perhaps our paths will cross again. During this short encounter we did build a friendship...friends share as you can see that Smiley is showing me just where the leftovers are if I was interested.

Good news for the West Wpg pair today...both seen at and in the location that we want them to be...Spring is in the Air...appears that the Tower, Bleachers, Diner are all favourite locations  :-[
They both stopped by the Bleachers for a short photo shoot...photos will be sent/loaded when processing is completed.

Spotted one falcon at the Bleachers at 3:00. Tucked farther back out of the wind.

When I checked back half hour later, no birdie to be seen.

Spotted one bird at the Bleachers again today, just before 3 p.m. This time she dropped down out of sight, where she should not be going. BAD BIRDIE! >:(

Agree with you Dupre, bad birdie.  We are trying to get onsite to deter her from nesting there, but no luck so far.  We do know that she has been in the nestbox doing the "bow" with Beau, if only that were enough to get her to park her eggs there!!!

New mantra...
Jules, eggs go in the scrape.
Beau will make you a nice scrape. Please use it.
Stay away from the cold hard cement.
Beau will make you a nice scrape.
Eggs go in the scrape.....

Dunno which building you folks refer to as the "diner" or the "bleachers" or the "tower", but I do know where the birds are (and have been).

Monday night 6:10 p.m. birdie on the northeast corner of "the building with the letters on it"!   :P

This morning at 7:45 both birdies on east side of same building, each parked on his/her own "O".  o_O
