I can't wait to see who comes back. And then there is the waiting; the hatching; the feedings; the almost unbearable cuteness; the nail biting at fledge time ...!   ;D 8)

Thanks for the link BCBird.  It is now on my desktop so I can check in often.  Can't wait to see "our" birds again.

Oh exciting! I had a report from someone over at the Hydro building about a week ago that he had seen a falcon fly over the Newport Building and then swoop over Portage Avenue and then the Air Canada Building. So I've been looking. But all I've seen so far is what look like crows sitting on the Hydro letters. I assumed that was what he saw (he vehemently denies it was a crow though). So maybe!

Anyone out there remember the earliest one of the birds did appear in the spring?  I believe the people who have seen a bird are correct and someone could be back already even if they are just passing through.

I think they were later last year (Good thing, brutal weather) - I remember a March 19th arrival a few years ago - seems a bit early now, but it's getting a lot warmer so who knows! Hopefully Tracey has her CAM on the nest and can have a look, maybe tell us if it was a Peregrine or not - and if so, maybe who is might be?  :)

 :) On one hand this is wonderful news. On the other hand, Tracy will be shutting the Forum down (temporarily) tomorrow for maintenance. I will checking frequently in hopes that someone has a positive sighting. I think the first to arrive last year was at the West Winnipeg site, Beatrice????  ;D ;D

Definitely a BIRDIE sitting on the Radisson box now.  And it's a large bird.
