Susha, I have a little help from my camera. I can see much better with it, better than I can with binoculars. Beau has such a dark head that he is easy to identify. If I see an adult (white breast), a bit large (female) with a mylar bar on the cheek, I do sort of assume it is Beatrix.

Today at 6:00ish, there were two adults on the south sign of the Diner. One was Beau, the other looked like Beatrix.

Yesterday evening, we spotted two birds on the Tower. As we approached I saw one take off after prey, so when we arrived there was only one left. Looked like a larger adult that was left on the Tower, so I am assuming Beatrix. I assume Beau was the one we saw take off.

I saw one bird last evening, in the rain, at around 6:00 p.m. on the east side of the building above the letters. It was a "drive-by" with no binoculars, so could not tell who it was.

Yesterday we spotted two peregrines on the north wall of the B&B at about 5:30 p.m. They were turned toward the wall, so we couldn't see enough of the breast to determine if they were white or golden.

Today at 5:30 p.m. we found a falcon on the north wall of the B&B, dark head, looked like Beau. We looked around to see if we could find any others and spotted one on the Tower.

Found Beau in the same place as yesterday, at about the same time of day.

About 4:30 pm today, Beau was on the south sign of the Diner, and another was on the east sign, perhaps Beatrix.
