Mak and I took advantage of the holiday weekend and took a leisurely drive up to Pickering to see if we could find Quest.

In Mak's words... "We saw the Burlington falcons to start our little adventure. Beautiful area and I got pics. Next stop Toronto and Rhea Mae. We didn't see any falcons but I got pics of where the nestbox is and all the surrounding buildings. Wow what a city with all it's skyscrapers and glass. Joycie took me up to the 43rd floor of the Sheraton so I got to see the falcons birds eye view. It was a bit scary cuz I am afraid of heights but as usual the falcons compel me to do things I didn't think I could or would do!  Out of there and on to Pickering where within a few minutes I spotted a falcon, then another one showed up. They acted like a pair echupping and flying with each other. We had about 2 hrs. or so of watching them before they left us."

We definitely had two falcons on what looked like a balloon-like structure from our view point. The water tower was a long distance away on the south side of the Power Plant. We are pretty sure based on size that the male was on top of the water tower, and Quest was on the ring at the base. I don't know if I was seeing things after going through so many pictures, but I thought I saw an antenna in 2 photos out of over 300 shots taken.  At dusk the two falcons took off flying and echupping.  Wonderful sounds!  One flew north and we found the other on the stills.  That was the closest location of the day.  We got so excited to see the sun setting on the falcon.  As we watched and watched, we couldn't see any antenna, and none in the photos.  So Quest alluded us again from getting clear pictures of her. 

Tomorrow is another day, and we will be up early hoping she will be there again with her mate.

Attached are 3 photos from our late Sunday watch.

#1 Both falcons together on water tower - one at top and one on the ring at base (99.9% sure it's Quest)

#2 !00% enlarged photo - am I seeing an antenna?

#3 Quest's mate.  Very dark looking Canadian tiercel.

I don't know but I almost think I see an antenna in the 2nd pic Joyce. I circled where I saw it. You have to stare at the pic for a few seconds and then the antenna will appear. For real! Good job ladies. Maybe today she will fly over you for a better shot.

As soon as you did the red circle, it was visable - went to Joyce's and there it was plain as day.  Go into your settings, mouse, and reverse your buttons.

Um, I can't use a lefty mouse, that's the problem. I write, bowl and eat lefty....everything else is righty...like I said... stupid Ed's the same, he writes lefty, uses a mouse lefty but does everything else righty.
