Our 'tower' birds here in mississauga at the St Lawrence plant live on seagulls ( being right beside Lake Ontario).  the guy who i talk to there told me that they are forever wiping seagull heads off their cars ( must not taste good.. or too crunchy) and finding corpses in the lots under the silos.  (yum)..

I'm in the Okanagan Valley, where we have a few eagles.  My Sister in law lives in Courtenay waterside and the eagles are gloriously everywhere!
Still, though, I'd love to see a peregrine.

I'm all for a Phanatics get-to-gether on B's rooftop.  I had to miss the gathering last year and was so sorry I did.  How many can you host up there?! ;)

Saw Ivy and Jules again today...I'm so lucky that I get to see both pairs to and from work. 

Not sure who was perched on the North East corner of the building this afternoon, but someone was out hunting again....falcon doing fancy flying and stooping gulls again!  Oh and yes, I parked in a nearby parking lot to observe all of the excitement!   8)

Could be anywhere between the Hydro Building (two blocks west of the Radisson) and Headingley .. and north/south to the Perimeter Highway.  And no, not going to be more specific.  Don't fret about the exact location folks - build a territory in your mind with three locations in it - The Diner, The Bleachers and The B&B.  Most folks online aren't in Winnipeg so this is exactly how they are envisioning our discussions of the Radisson territory downtown.  And keep in mind that the peregrines' environment doesn't look like our environment even though they occupy the same footprint.  So create the territory in your head and then add detail as the peregrines' story unfolds and as we are able to get decent photos.  Since peregrines aren't that easy to see even when you know where they are/will be, this may in fact be a much more fulfilling way of following along on their adventures.

Should have been a bit more specific about the roof. I only have access during working hours. The powers that be are of the xy species and even though the xx are first in and last out, only the xy have the alarm codes. >:(
Bit of an OB network here.

You said it TPC!! - I've finally figured out where they are (pretty much) and have yet to see hide nor hair of any of them - even P&T have completely eluded  my neck craning - so far!!! >:(

Rockstar Junior was on The Bleachers this morning about 7:45 am.  Couldn't see Jules anywhere so hopefully she was off doing "lady" things  ;) in the nestbox.  Will check the box on the weekend and let you all know if we have gotten lucky yet ....

Labour of love - well mostly love, some stress, a bit of annoyance, few frustrations and the occasional "I'll wring your bloody neck".  ;D

Ah..that's where he was.  I looked for them but didn't see either one.  I'll keep my eyes open on the way home...I wonder if I'll get lucky 3 days in a row watching falcons hunt seagulls  8)
