So are you saying Paris is now with Daer, TPC? :-\ Sorry if I'm a bit confused.

No, Daer from Selkirk is the bird we spotted in Winnipeg.  Sundance from Logan is the bird identified out in Selkirk last.  Not sure where Paris is, we assume she is okay and still in the Selkirk area with Sundance, but we didn't see her on our last run out there.  We're also checking to see if the bird from East Selkirk that is currently being rehabbed might be her, but she seemed bigger than the bird being rehabbed, but we'll be checking to make sure.

Hope that clears things up ...

Are the birds that were spotted on the way out to see the Selkirk birds in Winnipeg?

Bit of an update on this site ... we aren't sure where Paris might be - might be that she is the unbanded bird currently in rehab - hoping to see if we can compare some photos we have of her from previous years with photos of the bird in care - more news on that when I have it.

As for the bird we saw on our travels - the Selkirk bird that zipped past us wasn't Sundance, it had black band on the "wrong" leg for it to be Sundance.  It was a long way away when we saw it, so we have the band colour but no numbers so far.  Maybe the next time we take that route out to Selkirk the bird will be in the area and we can try again!

(does that help with your question Moonstar?  :-\)

Sorry Moonstar - different from where?


The birds that we find out this way are not like our Winnipeg pairs, they are all over the place within a very very large area of which Selkirk is the most recognizable landmark they visit.

Driving home from the lake yesterday saw a big bird, possibly a peregrine perched on a road sign along highway 59 close to the East Selkirk turn off.  It made me wonder if anyone has seen the peregrines out there and would have an update for us?

Haven't heard anything Birdbrain and we haven't seen anything on our regular checks of all the sites we know about and those we think are possibles.  Not even random observations of a peregrine or two in the area by our local spotters which is kind of unusual so there may be a real possibility that they didn't settle to nest and may or may not still be in the area.  Will post if I hear anything though.

On another note, and I can't remember if I posted this already on another thread, but the bird that was injured near Selkirk isn't releasable according to the vets/rehabbers and fortunately a new home has been found for him/her already.

Its a big adjustment for some birds and this one is unbanded so likely the only human contact it has had has been since it was injured.  Some acclimate quickly, others a bit longer, some never really do rather they tolerate it.  Don't know about this bird yet, but I will try to keep in touch with the centre to find out how's she's doing as time goes on.
