A late lunch break found me near the "West-Enders"...seemed like a good place to stop. Time was 4:45-5:30.
Both birds seen...sitting perched, and facing forward at "The B&B"...lots of preening, stretching and tail up in the air..."watch out below" kind of stuff...sorry no camera today ((

Cheers !
Thanks for the update on the WW pair Dennis....and where exactly was your camera??

thanks for the report Dennis...much appreciated.  Too bad there was no sign of them this time, which surprises me as they see you coming!   ;)

Here's a neat new story about the Winnipeg peregrines ... The best and worst years for Winnipeg’s peregrine falcons in the online magazine PegMag.

The sad bit about the eggs seemed new to me, I didn't realize one egg was accidentally broken by the parents.  Otherwise it was a great article, and with good choice of photos.
It is exciting to realize this year there were seven leaving.  Wonder where they are now?

I love this pair!  Yes, unfortunate things happened this year but I truly believe that this pair will produce strong chicks one day!  It's in the genes!!!  ;D
