Logan - 2015 / Hart & Jolicoeur
« on: March 29, 2015, 11:50 »
Thanks to Dennis, looks like we can confirm a third pair in the province.  Wowzer accompanied Dennis so perhaps we will be able to say who the birds are or aren't once Dennis has been able to take a look at his photos.  Given that this pair is back in all the usual places in the Logan territory and seem very familiar with one another, it is likely we know who they are ... or maybe not.  More news as we have it.

And yes, we have been keeping an eye on this location and yes, it could be that the female here is the one who has visited and been pushed out of both the Radisson and West Winnipeg territories already this spring.  We'll be comparing photos/screen captures to see if we can't confirm.

Despite newly returned, very amorous, uncooperative birds and wind, Dennis and the Wowzers got photos of birdie feet in flight and we have managed to decipher the numbers and as of this morning, Hart and Jolicoeur are back.  And I think I mentioned this, they are exceedingly pleased to see one another!!  :o   Don't think there will be much of a time gap between the West Winnipeg and Logan nests this year if the enthusiasm of the pairs is any indication.  :)

Have had a report of another peregrine squawking at Hart & Joli this morning.  Don't know if it was one of the Radisson or West Winnipeg birds reading them the riot act or if it is a bachelor bird looking for love (remember Smiley? and Alice?).  If we manage to catch a band number on our travels, we will let folks know.  We are also checking photos and videos in case we can find any details there.

Dennis and I did a run around on Saturday and we didn't see Hart or Joli at all anywhere in the Logan territory where they know they like to hang out.  This isn't a concern, it isn't unusual for pairs to disappear for hours or even a day or two during the pre-nesting period.  Jules and Beau used to do it all the time, kept thinking they were going to find some equally terrible to nest on but then they would return and go back to their original horrible spot.  Hart was like a ghost last year, almost never found him around the nestsite, didn't mean he wasn't paying attention, just that he like to hang out further away than Cowboy did.  Beau was like this when Jules was nesting - hard to find him anywhere near the nest or her until we moved their chicks at banding, then we had no problems finding either of them.

Hart was on his game this morning when we went to check the nestbox - he was up in the air kakking at us until he was sure that Joli wasn't concerned about us, then he settled but he was still on-guard.  Not as much of an assassin as Cowboy but he was making sure we knew he meant business.  (Business is relative however when Cowboy is the benchmark!!)  Joli didn't even get off her tail feathers until we got close to the nestbox then she too came to scold us.  We didn't stay long of course, enough time to confirm a nice substantial scrape in the gravel and for Dennis to grab some flight shots.  Not expecting eggs until end of the month ish, but we like to check sites to see how they are being used each spring.

Drove by site about 7:30 p.m. Monday evening.  Joli was sitting minding her own business; Hart came sweeping by,
it's time for some canoodling.  Did his thing and he flew off.  Joli just went back to minding her own business.

Oh man does that ever sound like Hart!  On our first sojourn to Logan this year, he was quick to defend the site and Joli just hung back until we got too close.  Will be interesting to see if that continues or if he is the magnificent vanishing male again this year  ;)

Blast from the Past

Sundance, one of the three male chicks from Cowboy's and Joli's only nest together (Logan 2013) just reappeared.  Looks like he might be hanging out with Ty's former mate Paris.  They aren't where Ty and Paris nested last year and he is only two so no idea if they will try to nest or if she'll spend the summer explaining the ins-and-outs of how to court an older lady.  This is our first return or sighting of a Logan chick after hatch year.

And excellent news for the future - Hart and Joli are parked on four eggs as of yesterday.  We don't have a camera at this site so we wanted to make sure they were well into laying and the weather was warm before we checked on them.  Weather was perfect yesterday and we have been of the opinion that they were on the same schedule as Beatrix and Ty at West Winnipeg and that is exactly what we found.
