 These two were on the lower roof this afternoon, April was watching from the top of the nest box.

 Things are different with the falcons this year, most likely because there is a new female.  After the chicks fledged I didn't see them very much downtown, adults or chicks.  I guess they have been out at the Tower.  I saw both Wingo and April but only one chick and the last I saw a chick was August 20th and it was out at the Tower.

So, for five days in a row these two were out at Tower in the early morning. I did see them out there in August also. It seems April prefers being out there and Wingo followed her. I hadn't seen a falcon at the McKenzie building for the past two weeks until yesterday. 

For now, Wingo and April are still here as of yesterday. :)

It is lovely to see a pair hanging along together so long post nesting ... good sign for next year and potentially for a long successful time together!

Well done April, Wingo & RCF!  ;D
