Sorry, driving and chatting and texting means I forgot to mention that RCF and Rose were our ground-crew today in Brandon.  They were in charge of keeping track of Hurricane and Sol as we were focussed on the chicks and the pigeon mess!!! Actually, RCF's got downtown Brandon so well scoped out for camera angles I think a) they do t miss a thing that goes on at McKenzie Seeds and b) the peregrines consider them as odd-looking members of the family (because humans would be odd-looking to peregrines NOT that RCF or Rose are odd-looking!!!)

Banding here went very well, well except that the mess the pigeons had made in all the places we needed to hang onto or kneel on!  Hurricane and Sol were understandably miffed that we had come back yet again but hey, what's new. Was cloudy until we arrived then went sunny but not too warm which made the work easier but there were still 7 flights of stairs, then a truly nasty spiral staircase and a landing that was equally pigeon-abused.  Getting the chicks pretty much the easiest part of the process.  Two boys, as yet unnamed (just whittling our final choices) were feisty but not boodthirsty little terrors. They looked good - just like young peregrines should! Will post longer when I get back to town.

Good luck with the banding in Brandon, TPC & Dennis.

Oh and RCF is pretty convinced it will be a boy and a girl ... If she is right (and she likely is  ;)) then the boys will outnumber the girls this year!

We will be in Brandon tomorrow (Thursday) banding Sol's and Hurricane's two chicks.  Since we have to use a ladder to get up to the nestbox and we need to repair the camera window, we are very much hoping the weather forecasters are correct about tomorrow's weather in Brandon!!

Yup going to have make sure that window gets fixed - the thought of pigeons inside (again) is too traumatic to think about (again)  :-X :P

Hurricane was serving lunch when I was there today.

Look at all those lovely little feathers on this chick                         

They’re looking good! Thank you, RCF. :)

Have you seen their little heads lately RCF?

I just saw them today and they look bright and perky.  ;D

Oh what a nice surprise (I just want to hug them), they’re way too adorable! :)

Thanks so much for sharing your awesome photos, RCF. ;)


They are very sweet!   :-*  Great photos. Thank you.

RCF, your photos are fantastic! Have you thought about starting your own gallery?

burdi, you may want to rethink about hugging them, unless you want your ears pierced.

I love your pictures RCF,, thanks for posting them and keeping us updated about what is happening in Brandon.  These latest ones are so cute!  It looks like they are having a conversation about the world out there.  Thanks again.
