I was driving downtown yesterday, and only heard them this time.
Unfortunately, I do not yet know where all their "hiding" places are, so it's tough to know where to look.  Tricky buggers! 
The good news is that at least I heard them.  :-\

You aren't alone Allikat - Dennis had a hard time finding/tracking them when he was out there too!

I'm sitting here behind city hall and both birds are flying around for the last 20 minutes.  it's pretty breezy out.

Sounds like a nice way to spend an afternoon. 
Guess you do not know if they have a nest or chicks?

According to TPC's Twitter post Andamooka and her mate have four chicks.

Thanks RCF - was doing some last minute posting before heading out for the Radisson & Logan bandings this morning

I also received a couple of photos but need to get permission to post - hope to post them here tomorrow - one of a chick pile the other of Andamooka's unbanded mate.  And Dennis gave me some photos from his Regina trip today so I'll post one from there too so you all can see the whole family.

Will the Regina chicks be banded by anyone, TPC? :-\

They were last year by a friend of mine so I'm assuming he's doing it again this year - City Hall unlike Saskatoon is an accessible nest - not unlike the Radisson in fact.

Peregrine falcons return to Regina's city hall after years of absence

Bits of white fluff, with a big beak four peregrine falcon chicks may have a face only a mother can love, but some think the chicks are a thing of beauty, including Regina resident Pat Thompson.

He's delighted that a pair of falcons have made their home atop Regina's city hall for the second year in a row.

Well, well, WELL!!!
Look what we have here?!  :-*
Thank you for posting this RCF!
I live here and didn't even know that they had eggs, now there are 4 chicks!!!

Right place - wrong time.  :-\

Now, instead of trying to find two adults, (wasn't a common thing), maybe I'll have better luck when there are 6 flying around, (odds seem fairly good  :P)

Andamooka's and Jasper's chicks will banded Wednesday morning.  Security is strict at City Hall as you might imagine a government building is, so it looks like just the bander will be going up.  He will be taking some photos while he is there and has said he will share them when he can.

That's all that there was in the email I got this evening.
