 Wingo Starr and Hurricane have been practising quite a bit from what I have been seeing. Hopefully he is mature enough for fertile eggs.  :-*

Wingo really is a dark bird. He doesn't seem to have the white bib that other adult peregrines have. Do you think the colouring is just because he is still young, or might this be his mature colouration?

He is only just a year old and I believe his plumage will change when he molts.  :)

I have been waiting to see if Wingo brings a food gift to Hurricane. Today was the day!  I saw him bring a small prey item to her. They had a little chat up there before he left Hurricane to her meal.  ;D

Wingo's half-sister Fiona is a year older and is still very brown compared with our birds at the same age.  I dare say by next year he will look more like Fiona this year - maybe a bit greyer on the back as males often fully mature in appearance before females do completely.  His sister is striking so it will be interesting to see him next year - and in years to come!!

Any idea if there have been eggs laid at this site?  It sure would be nice to have some success here this year.

I believe these two are now incubating eggs as of yesterday. How many eggs there are... I just don't know!   ???

Whoo hoo! Good luck to Wingo and Hurricane!

I really hope that Wingo is just what Hurricane needs - don't want to see our girl go through a repeat of last year!
