TPC, does this tupperware nest have drainage holes on the sides and bottom? Also I canít remember if an enclosed box available here or not.

The tuppernest does have drainage holes just like all the other boxes - and 3 or more inches of gravel so way above any possible puddling on the roof.  And no, there isn't an enclosed box at this site.  We tried to get one installed end of last year and again this spring but building management still has concerns about the peregrines nesting here, so we do what we can as we can.  Last year Joli did very well in the rain with her three boys and the spot is pretty sheltered for a rooftop - not like West Winnipeg which has been getting hammered today.

Thank you for doing all you can TPC, and good to know they are pretty sheltered for a rooftop. Hopefully, bldg management might have a change of mind though.

Similar places remain thrilled with peregrines nesting on their buildings!  ;)

Joli and Hart from the Logan area are please to announce the arrival of their quadruplets. All appear to be doing well...keeping with tradition a party will take place to adorn the chicks with their jewellery in the next 21-25 days.

Been raining all day (up to 20mm) and tomorrow is forecasted to rain all day again - another 20-30mm.
These chicks here are the youngest we have which means they are smaller but more vulnerable to wet/cold.
We will just have to wait until after the rain stops to see how Joli managed.
Keep your fingers crossed folks.

All the best to Hart and Joli - they can only do their best against the elements!  We are hoping for the absolute best outcome!

Odd pairing....interesting, made to be, ie: fate?!  Jolicoeur actually means, "pretty heart" and she is paired with a very attractive male named Hart.

Dennis and I were shaking our heads over that when they first paired up.  Wouldn't have been any better if Beau and Joli were together , they would be "beautiful" and "pretty" - not inaccurate, they are both very attractive birds.  Same for Beatrix and Beau based on their spelling - we couldn't call them Bea and Beau that was just too twee.  Fortunately or serendipitously, Beatrix is the feminine latin for "voyager or traveler" which of course makes it the perfect name for an anatum peregrine and Beau is beautiful.  As for Jolicoeur, Coeur de Guerrier might be more accurate but not as attractive a name or easy to pronounce.  Hart has a bit more growing into his the phonetic spelling of his name but he seems to be making progress for one so young.

Just checked a weather station closer to the Logan territory and they are showing the same shift in the wind and the configuration of this site is that any winds from the south are completely blocked.  18.3mm of rain received at this location so as long as Joli, who is likely the biggest of our females right now, was able to keep all the kids under her and warm, they should be fine.  Won't know until tomorrow at the earliest though ....
