Selkirk - 2014 / Ty & Paris
« on: May 01, 2014, 22:36 »
Ty and Paris are back and we very much hope that this year they will try to nest.  Not sure where they will decide to settle or if they will even decide to stay in Selkirk - since they didn't nest there last year, no way to say what they will do.  But we will keep looking for them and looking out for them.

Keep your fingers crossed ...

Dennis made a run past Ty's & Paris' favourite haunts this weekend while I was working and didn't see hide-nor-feather of either of them.  Might be that they are not going to nest again.  We'll keep an eye out just in case they were "faking us out"  ;)

Maybe they were just hunkered down somewhere, with all this rain. :-\

I'm certainly hoping so - Ty is (IMO) the most beautiful bird we have in the province at the moment and I'd love to see some of those genes get passed along.  He is definitely a worthy heir to T-Rex and Trey.

We haven't been out to check on Ty and Paris in the last couple of days but since they weren't where they should have been, we are likely going to have to plan for a longer trip and check all the nooks and crannies in the area so see if they have moved or have left.  Couldn't figure out why they didn't nest last year but I do hope they do so this year and if they felt they needed somewhere new, so be it.  We need a forwarding address service for some of these birds!!

TPC, did Ty & Paris ever settle down to nest this year?

Not that we have been able to find and confirm ... and we haven't had any other reports.  We are still trying to hunt them down if they are in the area.  We do have plans for a couple of nestboxes just in case what they are looking for are better places to nest ...

It would be interesting to hear if King Ty and his Queen, Paris, decided to make some Prince's and Princess's....

We don't know I'm afraid Allikat - we have been chasing reports of birds being sighted but no chicks yet.  I will be going to pick up a dead unbanded bird in the next few days (it's in someone's freezer) and if it is a peregrine - if it is a chick perhaps they did have chicks but I don't every hope a chick dies.  Don't want it to be Paris either because then Ty would have to find a new mate and he might leave the area ... don't like Catch-22s.

More information when we have it ...
