Logan - 2013 / Cowboy & Jolicoeur
« on: February 22, 2013, 15:27 »
need to start a new thread for 2013....

A bald eagle and a hawk are chasing the pigeons around the HSC this afternoon.
The hawk was flying so fast I couldn't tell what kind it was.

Leave some food for our peregrines please!!!

Both Dennis and I screamed around town separately yesterday afternoon looking for BirdNut's bird but no luck at any of the peregrines' sites around town.

Some birdie - small sized - looks like a male - very bright breast sitting in the sun this morning at 9:30.  East facing letters on the Brodie Centre.

Still sitting there 5 min ago, but he/she moved over one letter.

Looks like the same bird as earlier.

Bright breast male birdie sitting on the east facing letters again this morning at 9:00 a.m.
Looks like the same one as yesterday.

Looking very lonely....

I think that might be Ivy birnut.  Ivy was sitting on the nestbox until just before nine am and then he took off north around the Radisson.  At the moment Joli is sitting on the Roger's sign looking north.  They can't see each other if they are still sitting on their respective signs if I recall correctly, but they both can see the nestbox and the roof of the Radisson if Princess or a foreign interloper should turn up ...  maybe they know that snow is on the way?

I'm jumping Dennis' gun here just cuz I can't stand to wait any longer ... looks like Joli may be a bit of a floozy as well as Ivy!!  She was out at HSC sitting on the Buhler sign when in came a male with food and Dennis managed to catch photos - one is a much better confirmation of Joli's band than I had with the webcam photo (way to go Dennis!) and the other is another old friend - Smiley from Grand Forks is back as well!!  Ivy is still sitting downtown on the Rogers sign and his new girlfriend is off making the peregrine equivalent of goo-goo eyes at another falcon!

Actually an Ivy-Joli match would be the best because they are unrelated - Smiley is Joli's nephew of sorts.  Smiley's Dad is a half-sibling of Joli.

From what I seen yesterday...Smiley did have food http://www.pbase.com/photosbydennis/image/149546200 but wasn't in the sharing mode ? They did make a few circles over HSC and I was perhaps expecting to see a food exchange...at the time I thought that Ivy and Joli where over head.
After finding out that it wasn't Ivy, it seems he/Smiley was just looking out for himself.
Not sure where the food ended up at  ???
They both perched on different sides of the building, making it impossible to see each other...some short vocals from Joli before Smiley left, foodless. http://www.pbase.com/photosbydennis/image/149546206

Joli soon fallowed but I lost track of her behind the buildings.

So...that's my story and I'm sticking to it  ::)

He certainly could be since he's not an early arriver and birds seem to be delayed this year ...
