Jules was at the bad nesting site at 8:30 this morning.
I thought things were being done to discourage her from this site.  ??? ???

They are, we are ... keep your fingers crossed!!  :)

I'll keep my wings crossed.  ;)

Early bird catches the worm. Someone was on the south side diner this morning at 7:00 a.m. on the "s".  Probably shivering.  ;)

One bird, looked like Beau, as I drove past the Diner this morning.  No sign of Jules anywhere that I could see - and not on the Bleachers so far as I could see!  Hope the concrete is too cold for her!!

Late yesterday afternoon, took a drive and found one bird at the Bleachers. By the size I would say female.

Didn't see her at first. She was trying to fool us, as she was not at the front of the Bleachers, but rather was tucked further back. Where she was, she would have been out of the wind, but she still had full sun. The give away was her shadow.

Hi TPC,

I have a few questions, I hope you can answer.

Back in 2010, Beau and Jules successfully fledged 3 chicks from the B&B (Bed & Breakfast, for those who are new to the forum), but the past 2 years the building has been undergoing work to the roof area. Do you know if that work is completed? When they were doing the work, was the nest box there removed? I'm just wondering if that location may be a possiblity for nesting this year.

It does look like they have finished the exterior work on the building but we have been waiting for confirmation from the Board of Directors.  We've also been waiting for an answer as to whether or not we can put a box back up there - and yes, it would be a new box, their old box we moved to the Diner so they would (hopefully) recognize what it was and nest there.  They do recognize it based on the scrapes he makes in it each year but she has her own preferences.

TPC, thanks for the info.

Yesterday evening, did a drive around the area and found Jules once again hunkered down at the Bleachers (same as two days ago, her shadow gave her away). She seems to be keeping a low profile there. We had to get right up close to see her. Someone checking it out from the street probably would miss her.

My first time seeing a bird this year!  ;D  Around 5:00 p.m. someone was sitting on the northwest corner of the building that I believe those-in-the-know call the diner :)

Thrilling

Again today, same time (more or less)...this time on one of the letters - the "s" I think - on the south side of the building.  Didn't get a great look coz the light was green and I had to keep driving :P

Yesterday afternoon, drove by the Bleachers and had one falcon land. He was kakking very loudly. Took a couple of pictures and realized from the red band it was Beau. After a few minutes, we decided to go look for Jules. Just as I finished packing up my camera, Jules popped up from somewhere at the back of the Bleachers and flew off. We followed her to the Lookout.
