Happy to hear that Radisson and Chase are both back.  Very sorry about the fight,  let us hope it stays calm here-on-in.

Hi Bev.  I was checking out the Alberta Cameras, and the notation of the dates are 2020. Oops I bet, it's 2021.

From BCAW

U of A

we have 4 young ones. very hot here. we have never had this heat before.

Radisson was on the cam when we got there. she then took off flying around, maybe to cool off.

I am sorry I have not been here this year to update
very busy. but I promise , I will come  back  early august, and I will give you a run down . But today Gord( Doctor Cour)t tried to go up and band. Radisson was more ornery than ever. , our bander could not even poke his head out. She would not move from the cam. Nowif you    know Gord, he always bands ; he has head wound etc ;but they could not today

So we will have chicks not banded  .

last night when Lisa went up to check on U of A, Radisson was on a pillar above box, and Chase  on maz.  Lisa saw another falcon circling above and it tried  landing in a ledge at CP ( a roost building across from  nest box) It then went around CS ( our nest building) and knocked radisson from her perch, Radisson quickly recovered and went back up. Chase stayed put on the Maz , building adjacent.
So , we have had a floater at both Weber and U  of A. and we think it is a youngster.
this could be why she was more cantankerous  today than normal.
So it looks like  our chicks will not be banded.

We had 4 chicks but one passed , with the extreme heat we have been having. So fledge will be quite the chore this year.

It has been unusually hard this year without a cam. We have had some good people trying to keep an eye on U o f A.  I have not been able to go as often as normal as life  , with covid, has been a very busy one for us. ( Tracy knows why)

so I will be back, with hopefully lots  of good news.
Stay well, be safe.
