Loved the video of Mark Nash and Alex, and wasn't there a pic of you holding Alex last year?  I think there was!

Yep there sure was Margaret. Big Frank took one of me holding Alex and Cheyenne the Peregrine. All us watchers got to hold them. It was in between knee replacement surgeries for me. I was using a cane at the time. Here's the link to my album of that day:

O'Connor with pigeon.

Jack and O’Connor at Home
January 15, 2013 - Etobicoke - Sun Life Centre

Tracy Simpson Reports:

Yesterday I stopped by for a visit at the Etobicoke Sun Life nest site and found O’Connor perched high on the west tower and Jack nowhere in sight.  After a few minutes, O’Connor flew off of her perch straight to the nest ledge and landed right in the tray.  As she bowed and chupped, Jack flew in from the south and swooped up to the sloped window section of the ledge.  The two exchanged a few words before settling down for a few minutes.  O’Connor was feeling a little hungry and decided to line herself up for lunch.  While O’Connor opted to shop for fresh stuff, Jack was content to fly up to the ledge to the right of the nest ledge and have leftovers.

O’Connor flew over to the west tower looking north and in a blink of an eye she was off.  I circled around to the Lomond parking lot to try and relocate her and the pigeons were going wild.  The next thing I see is O’Connor circling with a pigeon in tow and I am amazed at the size comparison.  A pigeon is no easy meal to carry but she managed quite well as she circled up to the hydro tower at the subway.  Before I could get there she had already taken off with her meal to the nest building and was chowing down.

It was very nice to see the pair together on such a sunny day and I look forward to seeing more of them in the coming months.

I was out and about birding, anyone who knows me knows I have no sense of direction at all!! We had hoped to get a view of the Liftbridge Peregrines at Burlington, but no luck. We were there to see ducks, those there was thousands. It was very windy and cold, unfit for birds or birders.
  After a stop at LaSalle Marina, where we saw a beautiful young Bald Eagle flying, and a young Merlin perched in a tree(as well as thousands of assorted ducks) we made our way back to Toronto via the lakeshore. I saw a stack and wondered aloud what that was. Soon I realized we were passing "our Holcim nestsite". I asked if my birding buddies minded if we stopped and checked for Storm and Caspian. We did.
  I found Storm in a favorite spot, perched on the corner of a huge structure that is in the middle of the Holcim property. I scanned around the area, eventually finding a bird on the opposite side of the same structure. It was Caspian. She soon flew coming to rest on the railing right above Storm, positions Tracy and I had observed both in on several occasions last year. Not alot to report, other than seeing both Peregrines. With  that my friends Cori, Walter and I, continued our journey home.
