They have a male here now and bev thinks it's Chase from last year. Here is a little video of Radisson in the box. The male must have been close by but didn't go in the box.

Oh the wonder of video and sound after years of refresh! 
Thanks for the clip, RCF.
Radisson appears to be very ready to welcome her suiter.

Do we have an ID on the male yet RCF? Bev?

Looking at how pale his breast is, I would immediately suspect he's an older bird - that is how our male birds look when they are 7+ years old and they get paler as they get older ...

Radisson deserves a nice older, experienced male for her nestmate.

I agree with bcbird, but I think Bev said somewhere that she thought the male was Chase; if that is the case, well, he was a bit of a dud last year.  But I guess there is not much we can do if Radisson thinks he is just fine; sometimes older females are distracted by glamour and youth. :)

He's not banded, but bev thinks it is the male from last year. They gave him the name Chase because he would follow Radisson around all the time.  :)

Is/was Chase an older looking peregrine?

I thought he was youngish, but maybe that was because he was so clueless as a parent.

chase is younger. and I really feel is same one form last year. peter and I went down and we observed. He does same things as our Chase form last year.

He got back after one yesterday afternoon. was flighty at first and after an hour he gave RAdisson her first food gift which she brought to box
In all fairness  to him, he did come in after eggs were laid last year. He was doing well at hunting and started incubating just before eggs hatched. he even started feeding last year. he seemed to go looney after banding. too much happening at box may have set him off.I taking 2 out and treating the remaining one at box for 4 days)

A few pictures

picture we got of him last nihgt after he took leftover food from RAdisson. I f you continue clicking , to right you will see rest of picutres from  our visit there last nihgt
