Radisson Hotel…Peregrine Up-Date

Year after year Princess has returned to stake claim to her territory at the Radisson Hotel in downtown Winnipeg. For the last few years the question has always remained…will she return ?
She is no longer a spring chicken and it was a delight to see she returned again for another season.

Princess (2002 Minneapolis) is back for her 15th. season at the Radisson… To date she has had 4 mates, laid 48 eggs & raised 42 chicks.

Unfortunately for all the Peregrine Phanatics they Princess & Pip have taken the year off with no eggs laid. Everyone misses tuning into the Live Cam…starting with a glimpse of the little white fluff balls, the feedings and then the wingersizing before fledge day.

I for one will miss all the action the birds provided at banding time…Princess still made her presence known when we did visit the rooftop

Action at the Nest Site

Evening of July 17th. and we accessed the roof to return “Little Brother” for the second time around after being given the OK from rehab. All was calm on the roof as we placed the chick back into the nest box…that was until he started to yak. Out of no where Princess showed up and went into defensive mode.
