Sad News in Peregrine World

Sad news in the Peregrine World…Joli the resident female from the Logan site was found dead Oct 18th. 2017 of unknown cause ?

As humans we should not become attached but it’s hard not too…she was hands down my favourite Peregrine to photograph.

2012 Joli was with Cowboy (Brandon hatch 2000)
2014-2017 with Hart (Radisson hatch 2012)

Along with her mates they produced 19 chicks…6 females and 13 males.

Joli will be missed.

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.

Eggs are Hatching

We have eggs hatching…as of May 26th. Joli & Hart ( Logan ) are proud parents of 4 balls of white fluff.

Not to be outdone…Faith & Ty (West Wpg) have 2 chicks that have hatched May 28th.
Both sites hatching out after 33 days.

I have a feeling that the first of Princess & Pip’s eggs will hatch today May 29th or 30th.
