It's was still quite cool here this morning and these two were keeping whatever eggs they have warm!

Kind of looks like there may be eggs or an egg in the box. I saw April eating on the Scotia building then she was in the box not long after that.  A little cool, (- 2) to leave the egg(s) unattended I think. Wingo looked like he was hunting.

Hurricane will indeed be missed by all, especially you, RCF. I hope April can fill the void. Your photos are amazing. I am in awe of her defeathering her "lunch!"  :o ;D

I'm so sorry RCF, I know how much she meant to you and everyone else out there who followed her.  Perhaps she's decided to spend her days in the sun relaxing, she has certainly earned it.

Yes, she certainly has carly! :)

Looks like Hurricane is not going to return!  She nested here for 11 years and she certainly contributed to the peregrine population. I think she and her mates had 30 chicks fledge.   :-*

An adult unbanded female showed up April 1st and has been interacting with Wingo since then, just doing what peregrines do!

Hurricane hasn't returned as of yet but could still. I think the latest she was back was around April 13th or 14th, so who knows!  So I just wait and watch, that's about all I can do!

Some photos of the unbanded female who I have dubbed  "April".

This girlie didn't hang around, she was here for one day and I haven't seen her since! Just came for a meal, Wingo fed her! ;D
