C'mon Hart. Show her what Winnipeg has to offer. Give her a tour. Introduce her to fine (pigeon) dining.  ;D

From what we’ve seen in the past few days things are beginning to look POSITIVE for Hart and he may very well have convinced the un-banded female to hang around.
Have now added a few more photos to the West Wpg Gallery at this link….more to come when available.

Any news from this nest?  Does it look like Hart will have a family this year?  I sure hope so, it was so sad seeing him there alone last year.

The indications so far is that Hart won't be alone this year but that is from ground observations.  We have some cam work scheduled on-site shortly, until then we don't have our eye-in-the-box to confirm what Hart and his lady friend will have been up to in the last little while.  If we are lucky, we will find eggs waiting for us in the nestbox ... if not, it is early days yet.

After having a good portion of a meal Hart is on his way to do  Drop Off to his Lady Friend…things are looking positive in West Wpg. Last year it didn’t matter what sort of Dining Delight he brought…the Ladies didn’t hang around.
See this photo and others that have been added to gallery at this link.

Only that we are waiting for a new modem to arrive so that we can connect to the cameras again.  The cameras work just fine just won't talk to us ...

When Eye-Spy was checking what the problem was, he was watching the new female, Esme, in the nestbox and she appeared to be on eggs and incubating.  How many eggs and how long she'd been incubating we can't say, but we think because of other behaviour at the time that any eggs they have would hatch first week in June at the earliest. 

Not sure if we will have the cameras connected before hatch or after, but we are working on it and we are keeping an eye on the nestsite to see when the adults' behaviour changes from incubating to chick rearing much as we are doing in Brandon and Selkirk.

Sorry, that's all we know at the moment ...

Good to hear things look hopeful!  No pictures of lonely Hart this year :)

Really hoping to learn that Hart has a family this year.
