West Winnipeg - 2018 / Ty & Ella
« on: March 18, 2018, 18:27 »
Had a bird visit the newly reinstalled West Winnipeg nestbox this morning - suspect that it was the male at the Radisson, but can't be sure but we've only had one sighting here and it was when the male was missing from downtown.  And it didn't look like our new lady visitor ....

Went back over the recordings and our first visitor bird at West Winnipeg was a female on the 18th followed by a much smaller bird on the 20th = not sure if it was a large Merlin or a small male peregrine, by size, through the snow, could have been either.

Can see one bird sitting in the shade on the east sign.

Yesterday after work we were out for a drive and spotted one on the Tower (I think female from the size) and there was one harassing pigeons at the bleachers (smaller male?). After having no success catching pideons, the smaller one headed towards downtown.

We do have what we believe is a male back and holding this territory - haven't seen his legs yet - too stuffed after a meal to do anything but sit in the sun!!
We suspect though from what we can see and from his behaviour, that it is most likely Ty home again.  More news as we have it!!

Faith is still around town and we think we have seen her a couple of times by the nestbox but she's on the far side so no chance of seeing her bands so can't confirm except that the size looks right.  Now that a male is back here, will be interesting to see what she does ... come home to tried & true or stay with her spring fling?

Love it! Time will tell, I guess.  ;)

I'm hoping (at least so far) that Ella will stay in Winnipeg ... though maybe she is just passing through.

Yes, and that is why I'm hoping a lonesome female will make herself available in Winnipeg.

Although deciding on a mate is entirely up to them, I think Faith will "come home to tried & true" (as she did last year). But she does seem to be taking quite a while to decide!

Don't count on it, not based on today's events  :o :o
