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

Oh no - did people really have to come on the roof right at egg laying time!? >:(  :(

If an egg was ready Radisson may have had to lay it wherever she could ... but of course I hope that hasn't happened.

I heard a falcon near the cam a couple times this evening, but couldn't see who was actually there.

I wish I could  :) but I feel  :'( . We have not had a sighting of Radisson since noonish on April 23. Chase has come in and out of the box but no Radisson.
The boots on the ground, we hear nothing. But, she is Radisson and she ended up here without know how she got here. We will look till the falcons come home.  :)

Radisson you little terror, if you are nesting somewhere new, you will have to apologize mightily to Bev, Mr Bev and Soaring West for all the trouble you are putting them through!

Hopefully she is just taking her time this year.  Not that she is late, her first egg was laid April 28th last year, April 30th in 2014 and May 5/6 in 2013. Lots of wiggle room though - Cowboy and Joli at Logan didn't lay their first egg until June 1st in 2013.  And they did fine, no problems at fledge and we have had Sundance back in/visiting the province for two years now, so the late start didn't cause him any problems.

we have found them nesting somewhere else. pretty sure it is them.  S

They are safe and Chase comes back to box at night and sometimes during day. He turns in at their turn in place.

they will be fine and we will keep an eye on them
this is what happens when yahoos go up on roof at critical time.
the other night when we were at site, Chase came to box area 6 times so we were hopeful. He was sure trying but they really spooked Radisson and that is all I can say.

they will back after kids fledge, I am sure.
Chase trying to keep territory safe and i hope no one tries to move in.

lasr Sunday early morning was last time R was in box .

We had her turn into her spot last Saturday night and then saw her inbox at around 1:10am .  think she had already decided on other spot as she had not come near box , since men were on roof. but I think  she thought she was going to lay egg and came her early morning, as she did nto have time to get to other spot. too bad she did nto lay egg.
she was in box 4 hours

this is her calling chase in and then we heard two canoodle that day, and were hopeful. so you know she got spooked really bad.

At least it's good to hear they've been located.

thanks Bev for the ID. Radisson is safe and  is sitting on eggs. And we will be sly as a fox keeping a eye on them from a distance. We still have a intruder in the area and Chase is keeping a watchful eye on it.(female is the guess).

I sure hope intruders stay away. Unfortunately, keeping both sites safe will now require twice the work for Chase and Radisson.

I am very concerned about the safety of this nest. What is the distance between the nest and the raging fires in Fort McMurray? I hope for a positive update.
