Peter and I were down here last night. One falcon on top ledge of west face of College plaza. I t flew off and dove down behind Newton place.
then 2 falcons came flying in . too bad for us. the battery went on cam . They soared around top of college plaza and then one soared off south west. I was interrupted by someone watching so did not see everything I wanted to .

but this person has been visiting at Maz hospital and has been watching and has brought binoculars. she said lots of copulating on Maz , except for yesterday. Well they are replacing cams so I hope this does not hamper things too much. Hope it will be speedy .

 a few shots we have








it was cold and windy

Becky tested us and said she saw 2 flying around at lunch hour and one on High level bridge. We hare hoping this one gets a mate this year.

Did I mention I have a new coffee shop here My favorite one.  can see area fromm window. We have a few of these spots. :egg9:  :egg9:

The security company that had the camera on Weber has removed their equipment.

Does that mean there won't be a camera or are they installing new cameras?  ???

2 new cameras have been installed. but so far we still have 3 views. One view I do not like but I think they can be zoomed in and out.

It is Bell installing them and they are up and running right now but I do not know who they will be eventually under. I sure hope Bell is not going to try and run all of the sites. It was a disaster last yer and Gord knows this but we will give them a chance.

I cannot complain as we almost lost them completely.

I have not seen any falcons at the nestbox since they installed the new cameras, and apparently they are not finished yet; Bev says she heard that they have further adjustment to do on one camera.  I do hope that our falcons have not been scared away by all the activity.

A falcon at the nestbox as I speak.  I am happy that he/she or they were not scared off by all the activity with the new cams.  Now, I hope we can identify who this is.  I  think it is our resident female, Raddison, but until we see leg bands, we don't know anything for sure.

Nice to hear of courtship going on. Have you been able to identify either of them yet? Sure do hope to hear that one is Radisson!

Bev has a photo where you can clearly see the '7' so far on the band.  Just need to see the 'H' now  ;)

I'm thinking the odds are pretty good that it is Radisson.   ;)

I am sorry I have not reported. My slate is full right now , with planning daughters wedding for April28, baking, cleaning , trying to observe birds, going nuts ::) ::) ::)
but I wild do a bit now.

We think it is Radisson back and we have a banded male. Not sure if same from last year.

I am hoping to get bands and Jean is helping by trying and getting shots from window.

First off, cam update from Gord.they were supposed to be done last week but we had a blizzard.

U of A cameras 1 and 2 are being replaced by new units as we speak - hope to have them delivering a feed soon.


And just what are you doing in your spare time  ???  ...busy lady  ;)

Darn , I thought I had posted that photo here.



I will come back and do thumbnail. Sorry

Cams were adjusted today and RAdisson has been spending lots of time in box, but I hope today's fixing did not disturb her.

Gord thinks it is same Male as last year but I cannot get down there till maybe tomorrow , if not Wed. ( grandsons birthday tomorrow)
