Logan - 2016 / Hart & Jolicoeur
« on: March 19, 2016, 09:57 »
Dennis spotted a bird with what looks like a black band near the Logan site but he was just passing through the area on his way to photograph owls (darn owls!  ;) :P)

Might be Hart or Ty, Beatrix, Sundance, Kelly, Spencer or even someone else like Hurricane or Brooklyn or Andamooka before they head west or even Bridtol if Terminator has returned or Annie if he's decided to explore new horizons (not very likely I don't think) or it could be someone else entirely ... the fun begins ...  8)

Hart may be back, may have seen him rooting around in the West Wpg nestbox ... had a female with him but she didn't look familiar and I only saw her very briefly on camera.  Didn't look like Joli or Beatrix.  Did have bands from what I could see and the important one for our purposes looked dark - but whether it is black or black/red, I can't really say for sure ...

For the moment I am going to continue to post here since we have confirmed Hart's identity at the West Winnipeg nestsite ... but since Ty and Beatrix aren't home yet and we don't know who his lady friend is, we are going to keep him and his roaming here ... if he takes over somewhere else, I will move this thread en masse to wherever it needs to be ...

So yes, our Roaming male is Hart ... and since he's a Radisson kid, I know why he looked so comfy on the ledge trying to stare down Smiley.  Smart enough to move along when Smiley asserted his claim on the Radisson and neither bird looks worse the wear from the skirmish I saw at the hotel.  If Hart does keep hanging out at West Winnipeg, he may get the same "hello" from Ty, who we suspect is willing to assert his claim with less restraint than Smiley did.  Both Smiley and Hart are pretty laid back, Ty is very much his father, Trey's, son.

Just so we are talking about the same birds in the same place ... yes the sightings were at West Winnipeg but they are of Hart so until we know where he is going to settle - or get kicked out of, I'm keeping sightings of him here.  We've had cross-over sightings in previous springs and it has gotten confusing, so I'm trying it this way this time.  ;)

I did confirm ( band # ) Hart was at both the Logan and West Wpg. Perhaps trying to decided on a 2 star or go for the 5 star accommodations...time will tell.

Yesterday, March 21, at just after 6 pm, spotted a bird in the WW area on the wall by the nestbox. We had just finished checking out the area with no sightings, when on the way home... there was a bird. So we turned around and headed back. He/She did jump into the box for less than a minute, and then was back on the wall. We left at 6:15 as we had stuff we needed to do.

Yesterday, before 6 pm, spotted a bird in WW on the south east corner. Usually, we would see them on the east or south signs.

Hart and his lady friend are still bouncing from WW to Logan ... I'd like to see him convince her to stay at Logan (if Joli doesn't return in the next few days) so that West Winnipeg is open for Beatrix's return (still pending vet - more on that on her thread).

I may have an ID on Hart's new friend however ... just crossing the Ts and dotting the Is to make sure and then I'll post the information.  She doesn't look like any of our current birds - much darker head so I'll post a photo from the webcam at the same time so folks can put a "face" to the ID.

Hart's little friend looks to be a 2013 wild-hatched chick from the Greysolon Plaza in Duluth, Minnesota.  Dennis and I have been watching her saying she isn't Joli and it is nice to be proven correct.  Her name is Faith.  So far they have just been hanging out at West Winnipeg and at the Logan nestsites, will have to see if it comes to more than that or if she gets pushed out by Ty or Joli (if they return) or Beatrix is she does.

I've contacted the folks in Duluth and they may have more info on Faith to share.  And I'll post a photo of her in the next day - I'll find a good one from the webcam.

I found some information on Faith when she fledged in 2013.   :)

Rescuing young peregrine, Faith, A/33:

The next day we watched the birds and all of them stayed on top or inside the nest box. They were practicing flapping their wings a lot. Later that night, I went to check on the birds again and I noticed one was missing from the box. So I decided I should go look for it. Moments later, I was driving down Superior Street and I noticed a young peregrine perched on a chain fence. She was not far off the ground and a crowd of people were taking photos of her. At this point, I rushed over and talked to the people, I was able to get someone to stay there until I could get our rescue kit. I was told when I returned that she had hit a window of the restaurant she was perched near. I was not sure of her ability to fly back up so I grabbed her and put her in the cage. Again, I contacted people at the Greysolon and brought her up to be evaluated and released. Thankfully, she was also OK after the crash. Now, here is the funny part: Around 20 minutes after I put her back up on the roof, she found her way up a ladder, onto the ledge of the building and was trying to fly again. She took two short flights on the building and one longer one. She flew around to the front of the building and tried to land on it but was instead scraping her feet and flapping her wings wildly trying to land somewhere. I went to the front of the building and found her on the overhang above the Greysolon building entrance. This was the lowest but still safe enough perch for her to be on. So, my coworker Miranda and I decided to stay and watch her a while to make sure she did not end up in the street. Eventually we had to go, and she did not move for a few hours. We were nervous to leave her, but we informed late night businesses nearby of what was happening and told them to call if there was trouble.

Well, Dennis in his wanderings wandered past the Logan nestsite today and spotted a bird he knew was not Faith.  How did Dennis know without reading her band number, well a) she looks very different from Faith even from a distance and b) Dennis has a crush on Joli and while we don't have the new female's band number yet, we can say that she has the same colour combination on legband as Joli has and Hart was sitting with about 10 feet of her - something two adult peregrines don't do at this time of the year at nestsites unless they know each other.  Hart's been a wee bit cloistered, so chances are, Joli has returned though we do need to confirm her band number and of course, stranger things have happened ....

Dennis managed to catch Joli's band number while she was flying overhead this morning - so we can confirm that Hart and Joli are back at Logan.  Question is will Hart be a faithful husband or a bit of a rover?  :o
