yeah ty.

any word on Beatrix. is she flying by plane

Not quite yet, she's getting strong in the flight cage, they just want to consult with a couple of other rehabbers to make sure she's good to go since she's coming back up to Ty and a nestsite to defend (or not if Faith has moved on) and chicks to produce.  All is looks to be progressing very well!

Faith and Ty were back and forth in the nestbox all of yesterday despite the winds.  Their behaviour at the nestbox is not what I would expect to see if they were courting but every pair is different.  This morning, only had one visitation, not together but rather the usual he arrives and plays in the scrape, she arrives he bolts and she plays in the scrape and then he comes back and hangs out for awhile alone or he takes off again shortly thereafter.  I don't see the whole in-box/at-box courtship thing we see everywhere else.  And haven't seen any copulation on camera ... but most pairs copulate elsewhere ... going to have to see if we can see when they are out-of-range.

He may be waiting his time to see if Beatrix returns.

Ty may be starting to flirt with young Faith from Duluth.  He joined her in the nestbox for the first time today and he came by with food, not necessarily for her, but after he flew away, so did she and then he turned up sans food so he likely gave it to her ....

Both were on the Diner yesterday about 5:45. Looked like Ty was chowing down on the south sign - the feathers were flying. Faith was on the east sign also having dinner.

Nesting season has begun for Ty and Faith as well ...



Not sure that they are Ty's kids however, her affair with Hart and Ty's return are both right at the border of when her eggs would have started forming.  Doesn't appear to both Ty at all, he's already been in the box playing duvet a bit this morning.  Faith is young, so we will have to see how many eggs she lays and how she does as a mom - Ty knows what he is doing - this will be his fourth confirmed nesting and most of his chicks have done well so far as we know.

So, what will this mean for Beatrix? It will depend on a) when Beatrix is recovered and can be re-released, b) if Beatrix returns to West Winnipeg, c) what Ty decides to do (Team Beatrix or Team Faith) and c) if Faith is able to defend her right to Ty and the WW territory this year.  So no predictions, way too many variables and they all begin with when Beatrix is strong enough to be re-released.

I miss Beatrix, but would also find it sad if Ty was left all alone this season.

Hopefully this clutch will be successful for Ty and Faith.

Three is a good number. At this time, Beatrix is in a good place. The height of the storm season has begun in the south. Multiple tornadoes have been reported in many states. Beatrix, we DO miss you!

Four is an even better number  ;D as of 1830h today.



not the best photo of Faith - she really is quite beautiful, but she hasn't been cooperating much on the camera - at some point I'll catch a really nice image of her incubating and post it so everyone can see her up close.

So true, TPC. Four "is" a better number. Great news. I so wish we had a cam at this nest. Thanks for posting and thanks for this amazing photo.
