I take back the cute piles of fluff post from a couple of days ago ... little biting hellions is what this crew is all about.  And Faith was in a very bad mood!!  Dupre had reported seeing an interloper in the area a wee bit ago, so perhaps that is what made Faith more aggressive than last year.  That's a good thing but it is a long walk across an open rooftop to get to her nestbox.  Not hits this time but not through lack of trying!!

Two girls, two boys for Faith & Ty this year ... cute chicks, going to make project coordinator very happy and contemplate a hard hat when they are old enough to reproduce!!

Little terrors kept watching for us to reappear - I think they were taking bets on how hard their Mom would hit me next time!!

Checked out the site on Sunday and found two angry falcons in the air. There was a lot of vocalizing and Faith was taking a LOT of low, fast swoops at someone/something on the roof. Ty was circling a little higher. Faith ended up taking a number of short rests as she was VERY active. Left TPC a message that something was up. Later found out that they were banding at the time.

Glad you didn't get hit TPC. Faith was very aggressive.

Thank Dennis and a big white pail - Faith was not amused that we were up there fooling around with her kids.  But I like peregrines that are willing to hit so long as they don't take what I anthropomorphically think of as dangerous risks in their attempts to cause grievous bodily harm.  Kids were equally as snotty (in a great way!)  ;D

I'll be posting information on the banding hopefully tonight or tomorrow am.  Dennis has finished processing photos and I just need to carve out some time from my busy week.  ;)

Good morning to all the Peregrine Phanatics...as your well aware banding of the Logan and West Wpg chicks has taken place July 18th.
Couldn't ask for a better Nice Fathers Day present !

Banding Galleries have been created and more photos will be added in the days to come.

Stop by and have a look at the kids close up http://www.pbase.com/photosbydennis/peregrines_2017

Cheers !
Dennis

On Saturday headed out of town to Brandon. On the way, stopped at the West Winnipeg site and spotted one slightly damp bird.
