:'( so very sad, do you know how the other chicks are?

They are so mobile now it is hard to keep track of them but when I saw them yesterday, they were fine.  Going to try to post a video clip of birds flying overhead - not very good, but not bad either!!
I'll attach the link to the tweet when here.

Saw a birdie enjoying the sights on the west nest last evening. - Assume it was a kiddie as it looked brown.
Too bad it was another quiet summer at the Radisson.  :-\
Last year it was the good nest and no babies.
This year is was the bad nest and no cam to view there.
Plus no news about what happened to Princess.  :(
Hopefully next year there will be lots of action!  :D

No idea what happened to Princess after the spring fight - and wondered if she was the aggressor during the fall fight but no way to tell - cam was zoomed out too much.

With luck (and a little plotting on our part) we hope that whoever comes back next spring - Fiona (who was a worthy successor hard as it may be for me to admit) or Princess or someone entirely new - will find the west side nestbox more to their liking.  Fiona can't really be faulted, it was her first year here and there was a lot of necessary work on the building though they did try to schedule around the birds.  Next year should (knock on wood) be quieter we hope.

And Fiona's and Pip's kids have done well so far as we can tell.  Hopefully we will see them back again even if they are unbanded!

And your napper on the nestbox was likely Fiona - she's seems to back to the perch she favoured in the spring - which we hope is a good sign for next year :)

Still at least one bird around...traveling through downtown at around 1:30 and a bird perched on the nestbox. No binos for better viewing  but would say it was a female.

Yup - it is Fiona - she's been checking on the work on the east side of the building  :)

Haven't seen anybirdie on the west nest for a few days now - and Fiona, NEVER MIND the EAST side.  ::) - Hopefully if you come back next year, you'll nest on the WEST and we'll have a cam to watch you, and it'll be a good season of peregrine watching!!!  ;D

Fiona is definitely still in town - she was bowing to a male on the east side ledge this morning befor the rain began. Male didn't stay long but looked like Pip at a distance. Having said that, Hart is usually a late departed so can rule him out trying to get cozy with the new girl - it is sort of what he does i the spring and fall. He is nicely predictable that way. And always a gentlemen, he always comes to the ladies not vice versa.  We will have to see what happens next year with Fiona and Pip and with Hart.

I guess Fiona's half brother Wingo likes it at the McKenzie site, I saw him on the building after work. :o  8)
