Peregrine Defence Mode Kicks In

No sooner is the key in the lock with the door just cracked and that familiar kack-kack-kack-kack can be heard…it’s as if she can she through metal and concrete.

You take a deep breath and step outside ready to “Run the Gauntlet” and you wonder…will today be the day I get hit ?

By this time she has already made her first pass and coming in for the second as I raise the camera.

All these birds are great protectors/defenders and the females even more so.

Fathers Day Event

Fathers Day has come and gone for another year…what better way to spend the day than with my extended bird families.

Banding at two of the Winnipeg locations took place June 18th.

Logan site…3-females and 1-male
West Wpg…2-females and 2-males

Meet the West Wpg chicks…19-21 days old at time of banding.
All chicks are healthy and feisty.

Osprey on Approach

Osprey (male) on his approach/landing at the nest site.
The last time I was able to check the site, Mamma Osprey was hunkered down incubating eggs…another check will be coming in the next few days.
