Ella is on top, Faith is on the bottom.  Whole fight took about 2 minutes.

Oh no! I've been dreading a fight but have tried to focus on a positive outcome instead. It seems Faith got carried away (at Logan) and perhaps should have come home sooner ... but now I'm feeling sorry for her (and of course I don't want either bird injured).  :(

A close friend shared this narrative of his recent siting of Ty , Ella and ?

"I was reintroduced to these masters of the air in 2018 in a spectacular way, experiencing, in a relatively short span, aerial courting displays, chirping, mating, repelling of a rival Peregrine, and tremendous aerobatics of swoops, rapid climbs and steep dives, chases, low flying and tandem flying in winds gusting up to 75 kph. Additionally, this falcon and her mate were remarkably successful in snagging multiple small prey birds, which may have been easy prickings for their athletic pursuers in the heavy winds. I will not see anything like this again for a long time!"

Has there been any sighting of Faith either at WW or Logan?

Nope, Faith has been staying away.  Not surprising, Ella is a very aggressive young lady.  Nearly hit Dennis a couple of times :) he's starting to really like her  ::)
