Welcome back Pip!

Not Pip - his coloured leg band is on the "left" leg.  I think this is Hart from the Logan territory - he likes to hang out at the Radisson box in the spring when he's the first (often the only) bird back.  He eventually gets pushed out by the resident male at the Radisson.  If Pip doesn't return and Fiona does, Hart and Fiona could end up together though. 

Pip isn't an old bird and neither is Fiona so unless they/one or the other has run afoul of something on migration, we will hopefully see them again.  They were a good pair together.  Would be nice to see them in the nestbox this year.

Time will tell

We will have a cam unless COVID-19 gets in the way, but so far, so good.  Whether it will be Radisson or West Winnipeg or Logan, I can't say, depends on the birds and "the bug".  ;)
