Tower Nest - 2018
« on: October 09, 2018, 17:52 »
There have been falcons out here but I don't think they were nesting.  I saw one in the spring a few times, then really no sightings until Sept 1/18 when I saw two birds.

The female is not banded and I couldn't get a look at the males legs at all. This girly seems to like the cubby hole on the north side of the building, I've seen her eating in there a couple of times.  The last I saw her was September 29/18.

Both Sol and Hurricane were at the McKenzie site when I took these photos.

Great photos RCF! 

Very nice black cap on her ... like the early generations of the Radisson birds - T-Rex had a full black cap like that one as did Winnie who went down to Omaha and Phoebe who was the first Brandon female and 3D who was the first Regina male.  T-Rex, Phoebe and 3D were siblings, Winnie was one of T-Rex's kids.  The folks in Omaha could always spot her by her black cap.
