Hart and Joli have a nice clean nestbox - we couldn't clean it last fall because the weather went very wet and usually we would have the nestbox all checked out and waiting for them before they got back or just as they were returning, but they are back a bit early so this year we were a bit late.  Won't make any difference to them, Joli is already asserting her dominance over the nestbox and the surrounding area.

Hart and Joli (both confirmed at the time by the leg bands) were canoodling near the Logan nestsite so all looks good with this pair for this year.  Hart is hard to read, our little surfer boy, way too laid back and often late to the party (ie, nest checks, banding).  But he seems to work well with Joli and their kids are always well-fed and taken care of and she couldn't do that on her own.  Could just be he is one of the more invisible males - an uncle of his was like that at the Radisson many years ago.  This year, that invisibility may help him if he actually attempts to two-time Joli ... and yes, he was back at the West Winnipeg nestbox this morning to do some renos on the scrape in the nestbox.  Didn't see him involved in some extra-curricular hanky panky with Faith, but who knows.

And the nesting season has begun for Joli and Hart - they are currently incubating 3 eggs (maybe 4 soon).  Hatching should begin after Victoria Day if it is a 4 egg nest, maybe a bit earlier if only a 3 egg nest.

Thank you for sharing your great photo Dennis.

Joli is looking a bit fierce ... and very pretty! :D

Given the cooler, wet weather recently, haven't been by to disturb Joli & Hart to check them out.  But not really a great need, Joli has done very well as a parent and while Hart is still a bit of a lightweight, he does seem to know what he is suppose to do and does it well enough to keep Joli in top form.

Hatch here isn't due until about the last week of May so lots of time yet.

Took advantage of the break in the rain to check out Hart and Joli at Logan.  We estimated their eggs were due to start hatching on May 24th and looking at the chicks this morning, it looks like they are about 3 days old, so our estimate looks pretty good.  Can't say for sure if there were 3 or 4 chicks - when we checked for eggs last month there were just 3 and incubation hadn't begun.  Suspect that Joli would have laid a 4th but she, and the weather, have not been cooperative.  We space out our visits to only when necessary so once we could confirm she had eggs and that incubation was about to begin we knew we didn't need to check on them until hatch time.  Hatch time came and went however because with the rain we weren't going to take a chance of the chicks getting wet. Then came this morning and it hadn't rained overnight and there was only a 30-40% chance of rain so we thought we see if we couldn't get a quick look.  Took us 4 minutes to get a good look, mostly because Joli was coming in with a meal (a rose-breasted grosbeak - a first for me as peregrine prey).  Chicks remained pretty oblivious to everything other than the fact that mom wasn't sitting on them anymore.  Couldn't tell for sure how many chicks there were in their little pile, but I think 4 - we could see two heads and I think another two butts that couldn't possibly be attached to those two heads no matter how flexible chicks are.  Won't know until we check on them again, which won't be for awhile and will of course depend on the weather cooperating.

Our luck held this morning, it started to rain 20 minutes after we left Logan. Joli would have retrieved her grosbeak, fed her kids and everyone would have been neatly tucked back under her before the rain began.

I'm happy you found an opportunity to visit here, as I often think of them (especially when it rains). Great photo! Thank you Dennis and TPC.  :)
