4:00 pm. finds Jules at the Bleachers and Smiley AWAL  ???

Maybe he's going to come out to Brandon and visit his sister.  ;)

We've been through the brother-sister thing with Ivy and Lucy ... didn't go well ...  :-\

Beau is home so we know what happened to Smiley - not so smiley in the end.  Don't think there was a territorial skirmish over Jules, she really wasn't much interested in Smiley.  She is definitely interested in Beau however  :o :-X  Dennis and I watched <non-PG13 behaviour> for a couple of hours today.  At last sighting the lovebirds were off on a long gliding courtship flight to the east/north-east of the Diner.  And yes, they both have been on the Diner which is a major accomplishment this year - they were on their usual corners, something we didn't see with Jules and Smiley.  The only times we saw Smiley and Jules together on a building together, she was one place he was about as far away from her as he could be without her taking off on him, which is something she seems to have done alot of.  So she really was waiting for her beau to come home, or rather waiting a little bit longer for him to come home.

Even though Beau is a fan of nestboxes and may well drag her back to nestbox #2 we are still going to exclude her from the 2011 nestsite so she doesn't get so much as a chance to nest there.  He's only just back so she not ready to drop eggs yet so we have a few more days before we start having to run to a deadline.

Good new though now that Beau is home!!  (And yes, Dennis and Wowzer did their thing  ;))

Great news -- wouldn't want to see Smiley hurt in a skirmish, but it's better to see Beau and Jules together.

A friend in Charleswood phoned be around 6:15 or so tonight. Said she saw what she was sure were 4 peregrines very high up and there was definitely a big chase going on.  She didn't get to see them that long.

I'm thrilled that these two are back together!  Clearly, Jules had her candle in the window, waiting for her Beau, and they're wasting no time ;)  Peregrine-style romancing, getting down and doing the dirty, that's how we like to see it (with Wowzer's assistance of course) ;D

Jules and Beau are visiting all their usual haunts including the one site we don't want them "on".  Fortunately we are early on in the game and although he's only been back since Friday, Beau doesn't seem to want to spend any/much time with Jules at her favourite spot.

And (sorry missed this part) Smiley we believe is just fine - we are pretty sure we saw him at HSC this morning - the bands weren't as clear to read as we would have liked but we think it was him.  For more of our reasons why we think it was Smiley at HSC, check out the HSC thread ...

What nobody was out today looking skyward...nobody driving past cranking their neck out the window while stopped at the light/driving down Portage. I drove all the way back from Elie to only find Jules perched where she shouldn't be perched ???
And then a run down town to see one perched in the nest box after finding nothing at HSC.
So after I finished my coffee break it was back to work.
