isn't this where Quest has been visiting?  confused

I won't be surprised if when Spring comes and Quest's hormones start raging that if she can't find a mate in Port Hope - she just may come back here and try for a site with an existing mate like Beauty did.  No doubt she's seen the possibilities here on her little tour and I wonder if her day trips are her way of scoping out future nest sites. 


Carly - you might be right.  I wonder if Quest is done with Port Hope.  Now that she is in Bath, Ontario with a nestbox on the Lennox Power Plant, maybe she is taking her little trips to scope out a mate.

 Another great Steel City Safari
November 20, 2009 - International, National and Local News
Matt MacGillivray Reports:

We had a great turnout for the Steel City Safari, at Mohawk College in Hamilton, this past Sunday.  Our 4th year attending, the CPF one of many attendees who brought interesting animals for children and adults alike to see up close. The event was an amazing success!
Nova

Joining Marion, Tracy and Bruce at the booth were a few of our educators - Alex, a female western Great Horned Owl, Falon, a female Peregrine Falcon, and our newest and youngest educator, Nova, a male Peregrine Falcon less than a year old.

It was great to meet everyone who dropped by the booth. If you missed us at the Steel City Safari, we will be attending the Toronto Motorcycle Show, December 11 to 13. Come by the booth and meet the educators.


CPF is visiting schools all around southern Ontario with educators like Alex, Falon and Nova. Contact us if you want Project School Visit to stop at your school.


The fluff in the pic is Nova as a baby.

 Perched Adult Peregrine Humber Bay Park
November 21, 2009 - International, National and Local News
Frank Butson Reports:

On Nov 21, Walter and I were down at Humber Bay Park East in Torontos westend. It is right at the lakeshore. The adult Peregrine flew past me as I was searching for other birds. It flew out of my lines of sight,so I thought that was pretty cool and continued my search. As I continued on some time later,I spotted the silhouette of a raptor perched in a tree. Looking into the sun,I was fairly certain it was the Peregrine,but wasnt sure. I ventured abit closer and confirmed it was a Peregrine. Walter and I began a slow approach,not wanting to spook the bird. After 2 ladies walked right under the tree oblivious to the birds presence,I moved as close as I dared. I could not see a band on the birds left leg at all,and it was well seen on at least 2 or 3 occassions.  The Peregrine was likely digesting a meal,as it had a full crop. It sat for at least 10-15minutes while we watched. It watched various small ducks intently,despite appearing full.It was a great find and really made my day. Please enjoy the video I put together.

 King And Bay Female Peregrine Spotted
November 25, 2009 - Toronto - King Street
Frank Butson Reports:

Glenn Steplock Reports: Was thinking of you guys when I finally saw my friend outside the window this morning. It has been a very long time since I last saw the Peregrines.  This one was large (female) and was perched on the north side of King Street on an RBC sign, it took off towards 25 King St with prey in the Talons. All around 9:30am.
