 I went downtown this morning to check after yesterdays nasty storm. It's raining but I saw both adults and one chick perched. I think there is only the one chick around now, I haven't seen them both together since July 28th.  Maybe she's like her mother and disappears after fledge!  ???

Yes and Thank you!  I was happy to see them both after 3 weeks of only seeing one.  ;D  They are pretty much identical, can't tell them apart!

That's pretty cool! You don't get to see that everyday!  Lucky him!  :) 

One of the two chicks likes to perch on the corner of the museum building.

We haven't had a chick come to play for a few weeks now ... would be nice to see one or two or any out this way.  But it is that time of the year.

Will be interested to see when the adults leave - the Farmers Almanac is predicting a "snow train" across the Prairies (there was snow in the Pas in the last week) but don't know when - I kept missing that part of the story when it can on the radio!  Usually we have at least 1 bird around until mid-October, interesting to see if that happens again this year.

RCF - Question -  the last three of your most recent photos are of the chick that has been around - yes? Can't see a band on photo 1 and Wingo's bands looked to be in good shape last I saw them - and his plumage was starting to transition more to the adult colours ...

Hurricane is still here but not sure about Wingo, the last time I saw him was September 26th.  I have not seen a chick since the last time I posted seeing one.  ???

Someone posted on Facebook that they saw and photographed a juvenile peregrine falcon near Killarney....maybe one of the chicks from here.   ;)

I saw Hurricane yesterday but not today. She usually leaves about this time so she's probably gone. Wingo is still here though, he stayed this long last year. I saw him on the south light at 5pm today.
