Radisson - 2013 / Ivy & Princess
« on: February 04, 2013, 20:14 »
I was downtown today. Checked out the nest box, nest ledge, Hdyro sign, Rogers  sign, Richardson building, Kensington bldg, Post office etc. etc.
No sign of any peregrines - but lots of pigeons.
Beware grey birds, they will be back soon. And you will be kraft dinner.

I can't find the timer.
I've clicked on the Project Website, but don't see a timer there.
Where should I look?

Sorry bcbird, on January 12th, TPC posted that the timer is in the works and the count was 77 days. I made the post about 51 days from her post on Jan. 12th to Feb 7th. I'm am sure the timer will be up soon. With her very heavy schedule, we can do the math until the timer is up and running.  :-[ Again, sorry for the confusion. gcg

Thanks, gcg.
I assumed I had an old link or thought I hadn't seen something obvious.
Math skills are invaluable!

Yesterday, my husband and I were driving when I spotted two birds circling above, landing on, then circling some more above the B&B. As we drove closer I had my eyes glued to the area. Finally, we were close enough and (deep sigh) it was ravens. Oh well, I knew it was too early for peregrines. Keeping my eyes on the skies ;D

Oops, this should be posted on the West Winnipeg site.

There have been a lot of ravens hanging around there for the past few weeks. They caught my eye too!

This morning there were ravens flying up & down my street with serious intent about something.  They were making a ton of noise and I was actually blessed by the sound.  Reminded me so much of summer and how annoying they are when they scare off all the smaller birds.  But today, on another cold wintry morning I loved it!

I went for a walk about aroun d 10:30 this morning. I looked in all the usual places but didn't see and peregrines.
Strangely enough, I didn't see any crows, ravens or pigeons either. They might now something we don't.
Yes Dennis, I had my camera with me. :)

The spycam on the east side of the Hotel has gone off-line so Eye-Spy has agreed to take a look at it sometime in the next little while.  We will also need to clean the dome on the skycam (west side) as there is a build up of rain/weather marks, however, that will probably have to wait until its a little warmer.  Doesn't interfere with operations or viewing, just not the clear image we will want when the birds are back and getting comfy.  The ledge cam and the inside-box cam are both fine and running.  The outside-box cam is also running but at the moment all you can see is snow - the nest box is more than a little full of snow still!

Had a little spin around with the skycam and nothing sitting in the sun on the Manitoba Hydro sign or on the east or north Rogers sign, or the west-side Radisson sign and no sign in the nestbox of any visitations, peregrines or otherwise ....

Was downtown last night between 5 and 6:15 - no peregrines spotted.

Just as we were leaving, a pair of bald eagles came from the HSC area and circled high overhead.  Watched them for about 5 minutes until they disappeared behind buildings over towards Broadway. 

Overall yesterday was a good birdie day....one peregrine in the afternoon...two bald eagles at night.  I love spring!!

Where, oh where can our birdies be? I keep checking the forum for sightings but......  I guess they are waiting for warmer temps and some snow to go. I don't blame them as I am doing the same thing!  :)

Maybe they took one look at the never-ending snow and turned around to go back south :P
