Looks like Ann Brokelman is not addicted like the rest of us...visiting Linn today instead of Quest!  Pics at the link!


Scarborough Yellow Pages - lots of falcon action tonight
July 20, 2011 - Scarborough - Yellow Pages
Ann Brokelman Reports:

I arrived at the Yellow Pages building at 6:00pm to see Linn sitting on the NE corner and one juvenile eating on the S centre side.

Within 15 minutes the activity started.  One male was hovering on the top of the building, the female joined in.  They played catch me if you can, talon touching, the speed was incredible.  Stooping at each other, turning right, then left then straight down.  For appr 10 minutes the two juveniles played around the building.  They then moved to the building on the south side (beyond the parking lot), I was surprised to see both of them sitting on the light stand right above me.  It was the female (red tag) and Jet.  Well they looked at me but didn’t go anywhere.  Suddenly the 3rd male peregrine juvenile joined them and  went on the attack.  That got all three up and playing over the parking lot and then toward the 401.  They were over the highway for a good 3 minutes chasing, diving, playing.  They then moved to the building to the east of the photo lab and were seen diving at each other and landing on the top of the building.  They were still having a heck of a good time when I had to leave.  I stopped in after going to a meeting 8:15pm and no sign of them.

I tell you that is what you call amazing, fantastic and totally wild.  You need to go and watch this behaviour as it is really too hard to describe but well worth the drive to Scarborough.  I was so busy watching the peregrines I almost stepped on a ground hog.

I was reminded last week that we used to call ground hogs "swearwords" here. Five points to anyone who can come up with the name of the person who originated it.

No, in your reports you would say you saw the swearword creature down by the gorge. Not that you said the actual swearword! I swear, this is confusing.
