We have a falcon back. It was tucked into Radisson sleeping spot. So, we are just waiting for visual ID by tags. But, who in there right mind would go and sleep in her cubbie hole. :)

Well Bev and Peter and Trish and Mike and myself tried to ID them last night. It is windy on the parkade and they would not get close enough for that. But she does all the things that Radisson does. Even if she has to chase Chase off her perch. They were hunting together, or should I say she was hunting and Chase looking for a easy supper. lol

I'm new to Edmonton, and I am an avid Winnipeg Peregrine fan. 

Is Radisson named after Radisson Hotel in Winnipeg where it would have hatched?

Yes - and her band number starts with an R so it is an easy mnemonic :)

Welcome new chick
I too started out watching the Manitoba nests, until I heard about Edmonton's U  :)of A and the connection it has to Winnipeg . I started going to the nest and meet Bev and Peter , 2 of the finest avid peregrine falcon rescuers here in Edmonton. We have fledge watch for about two weeks in the last part of July and it is dawn to dusk. Come out before that and watch Radisson with the pride that only a transplanted Manitoban can have with a bird.

WE are pretty confident that we have RAdisson and Chase. even though Chase does not have bands, we know. You cannot watch them for years and see all their  habits etc, and not know.

WE also know it was Radisson. She was even on the Moon on Suite hotel

but I knowTracy likes the numbers LOl so I will do my best. Cam is not as clear as i would like for reading but I will get it , either from cam or the ground

and just trust that this is Chase

I think we will have eggs earlier this year


And we did positively ID Green girl at Weber and almost have D01 positively ID . Green girl is radissons daughter , and she replaced my beloved Miss Edmonton , who is sipping cool ones on a beach in south America LOl

will try and do a slideshow for you with pciutres form this year so far. mayube this weekend

I really only have control over identifications of the birds in Manitoba Bev, so I'll put Radisson and Chase on the thread title and rely on you to let me know if you find someone else has returned unbeknownst!!  ;) ;D

Thank you for the good news regarding Chase and Radisson, Bev. It's nice to know they both made it back safely. :D

The malabars (aka cheek pattern) of Radisson is the same as her Mother Princess.

Due to people on the roof, she was very upset.
