I see TPC has my day planned...let the games begin  :)

All of us know you have been waiting for this day, just as we have. I saw the photo Kate (weather girl) posted on Global News Tuesday. In it, you snapped a photo of two joggers in Assiniboine Park. Excitement builds.  ;D

I just noticed, I am now proudly, a Phanatic Fledgling.  :D

Sorry, went of to turn off the countdown timers before coming back to post more news ... :)

This morning we found Jules sitting in the watery morning sun, then in popped Beau.  No great fanfare, no welcome back, just a little yak at each other, him sitting on one side, her on the other.  She did a little shuffle on the railing at the Look-out and Dennis got a clear look (and photo) of her ring-band.  Beau was on the other side so we broke down Wowzer and the scope and we changed locations and after a long (long) time just hanging out as he ate (must have been a Canada Goose based on the length of time it took for him to eat!) and then napped.  Finally he moved back to an edge so we could get a look at him (with his bulging crop!) and despite the light he "mooned" Dennis and Dennis was ready and we got a look at his band.

So Beau and Jules are confirmed in West Winnipeg ... so far they are playing it cool, probably because its been a long trip north.  Beau didn't share food with Jules which is common courting behaviour and she went off to get her own and she hadn't returned when we left a couple of hours later.  So neither looks to be in a mad rush to get rolling for the season.  Which is nice for a change!

Maybe it is silly, but I am very happy to have the two appear at the same time.
No anxious waiting for a mate, and keeping all of us a bit anxious.

Great news -- so happy to hear that Beau and Jules are safely back -- and, as BCbird said, together!  :)

With Jules playing the bowing game with Ivy at the Radisson, it doesn't appear at this point they are "Happy Together" We could have a drama unfold when Princess arrives.  :o :o

West Winnipeg - 2013 / April

Well somebody was sitting on the NE corner of the diner last night at about 6:10 p.m. Female I think though I wouldn't swear to it.

I was able to observe two birds at the Bleachers today from 4:00 through 4:30 p.m. (they were still there when I left). They had their backs to the sun and warming up those dark back feathers.
