Hi allikat,
any sign of the WW pair? I've been out of the city for the past couple of weeks and haven't had an opportunity to spot them.
Thanks!

Yes...They are still hangin' around  8)
I stop and take a look to see if I can find them...sometimes I do and sometimes I don't.  Today's air quality report is that Ivy was perched on the same spot this afternoon as he was this morning.  He was just perchin' and lookin' pretty!  What a life! ::)

I saw Ivy yesterday on my way out of town. Quite the handsome man, just like his dad.

Oh I know B, isn't he beautiful? and...isn't it scary how alike they are (Ivy and Trey)?  Good genes!

Wanted to update for the folks that aren't able to see our West Winnipeg pair. 
This morning, as I was stopped at a light, saw Jules fly and swoop up, actually folks more like warp speed flying here....all I can say is WOW!  Falcons are amazing!
She swooped up to her regular perch, she was cacking up a storm.  Ivy was on his regular perch facing another direction.  Maybe she was giving him the gears for perchin' all morning.   ::)

Air quality check....

Both birds are still hanging around at their usual spots which is great!!! 

Heard Jules this morning...gotta love those female falcons and there screeching  ::)
I'm pretty sure she was having a conversation with Ivy because he showed up pretty quick....breakfast perhaps for his loved one?

I'm thinking that this yelling by the females is something passed onto them from Princess. Here, Brandon, Edmonton. Sheeeesh. But it does make for easy spotting. ;D

I don't know Jules' excuse.....perhaps they just know that right tone of falcon screech  :D

Just happen to be in the West-end early this morning...6:20ish
Jules on her corner at the Diner and no sign of Ivy. After stepping out of the truck for a couple of minutes...off the perch she comes...makes a couple of circles and then behind the Bleachers. Then another loop around the Bleachers, but didn't come back.
Change my location hoping to locate...yep ! Both now perched on the East side of the Bleachers...then Ivy takes flight and does a couple of turns and heads towards a near by tower.
Checking my watch...I still have some time before work.
The clouds start to clear and the early morning sun makes him glow...out of the truck...click,click,click,then Jules fly's in. More click, click, click...with a lot of keee keee kee kee ke ke ke ke going on...what a sight to see and hear on a early Tuesday morn.
