Welcome to 2018!

Only 88 days until at least one of our birds comes home!

I miss our peregrine falcons but look forward to finding out who will return to Manitoba in the spring; the countdown timer is very helpful. Thank you, TPC.

I'm hoping that 2018 brings many smiles to all of us! :)  Happy New Year!

 :) I anxiously await the (imminent?) return of our residents. As well, I have already bookmarked other sites.


http://chesapeakeconservancy.org/explore/wildlife-webcams/peregrine-falcon/  Current view shows Barb, who looks as though she is sitting on an egg. I'm puzzeled by this as it is currently 5:00 A.M. EST., dawn and there IS sound.  ???

I was watching the morning news after 7:00 am - looked like a birdie was caught on the camera.
Just didn't pay enough attention to which channel I was watching - CTV or Global. 
Global I think because the photo had the downtown in the background.

Let the season begin. The 1st arrival is on the cam as I watch. ;D  He/she just became verbal and is calling out to someone. Happy dance!

Both have downtown studios and have live programs weekdays from 6 to 9:00 A.M. I still remember the year one of them showed a live cam that had a falcon come in for a visit. I'm thinking CTV.  :)

For those who didn't see the photo on CTV ... it's a Merlin which means the peregrines will be home soon!!  ;D

If the Falcon Forum calendar says 21 days, but there is a merlin back already, does that mean we might be running ahead of schedule for this year? 

Or do merlins always get a head start on the peregrines?

The merlins are usually visible first - not necessarily because they are the first migrants home but because quite a number of merlins overwinter.  Interestingly American Kestrels are often seen first at HawkWatch sites but they are just not that visible once they get up here.

Our peregrines typically start turning up in the second half of March.  The Brandon birds often arrive in the first/second week of April but we suspect that they meet up on their way home because they are very quick to nest once they do get home.
