For those of you downtown who might want a take a little break in the lovely (if windy) weather, there is a peregrine sitting on the east side sign of the Hydro building.  Too high to get a great look but s/he is there.  

I suspect it is him though, saw a black/green band on the bird that toddled briefly into the nestbox at 1000h this morning - didn't get close enough to the camera for me to guess at a band number.  Smiley for those who want to know, has a black/green band on his left leg and has a white breast just like this bird does.

The male in the nestbox a few minutes ago - looks like Smiley and the legbands are the correct colours on the correct fee

I hope it is our Royals and they remain at the nestbox. Correct me if I am wrong but doesn't Joli show up here before migrating and also arrive early and again show up at the nestbox?

 :)  In case it IS Smiley, just a reminder he has his own emoticon.
