If we can see this great picture of Quest's scrape now, does that mean if and when eggs arrive, we will be able to see pictures on a regular basis?  I'm assuming  that these shots are being taken from the office of Harlequin Enterprises?   That would be so fortunate if that is the case. The CPF site says the CEO is an avid birder.  What more luck could we ask for?

This is the picture posted on the CPF site. Not as much material as were are used to, but it's enough to do the job.



What a great picture! Thank you for posting it. Is that Quest in the picture?

When I lightened it up, I saw the transmitter. Yup, that is her!  clap

I thought it looked like a good location - tuck those eggs back there and she is good to go!
I think the stones are just an added benefit for the parents to pick at.

Hope it all works out for her. Looks well protected that nook she's in. Probably too late to put up a nest box. Maybe next season.

!!! Quest’s Mate Has Been Identified!!
April 14, 2011 - International, National and Local News
Tracy Simpson Reports:

There is definately a tale of romance here at 220 Duncan Mills Road.  This afternoon Bruce Massey attended the site to check in on Quest and her handsome male suitor and he was able to positively identify him…  …it’s Kendal, a 2009 hatch from the 18 King Street nest site!!!!  The story of these two birds could start off with something like, “Their eyes met across a misty Frenchman’s Bay…” as Quest and Kendal have potentially been flirting with the idea of getting together since last year.  On Sept. 12 of 2010, Denis Gauthier was able to take two exceptional photos of Kendal  in the Frenchman’s Bay area which coincidentally was around the same time that Quest’s transmitter put her nearby at the power plant ( check Toronto - King Street page for the full sighting notation ).   Bruce was able to witness mating behavoir between Quest and Kendal today and watched as Quest spent time on her selected ledge working on a nest scrape.  Bruce and I will both be on-site tomorrow as we are excitedly awaiting the potential arrival of eggs!!!

Quest's new CPF page is now under Toronto - Don Mills. We can follow the adventures of her Harlequinesque romance with Kendal, of Toronto origin.

A link in their Harlequin article (click on highlighted Quest) points to the defunct marchlords.com website. I don't know what the new one is, but is there any way to contact them and have it updated?

Thanks to the moderator who moved this message here!
