Quest Stretches Along Highway 401

ScreenHunter_01 May. 10 19.53

Quest closed out April near her familiar stomping ground, but in the first part of May she’s been moving around. Her path over the past ten days or so has followed Highway 401 for the most part. She’s been as far to the northeast as Cornwall on the outskirts of Montreal, and as far westward as Ajax, near Toronto. In between it looks like she may have spent a couple of days at the Thousand Islands Bridge.

Since she’s showing no sign of settling into a territory it’s a fair bet she hasn’t attracted a mate. Apparently the life of a bachelorette suits Quest just fine for now.

    She seems to like it over the Lakes, easy prey: Gulls. Gotta love her “wandering” ways.

    Maybe the fellas are intimidated by her antenna? 🙂

    Good pont Barb! Is it possible that the transmitter affects whether she will be able to attract a mate? Has a precedent been set previously showing that it has no affect? Just curious. Thanks for all the updates and info !

    Looks like she’s just not in a hurry. As Lennoxman said, the Osprey returned a few weeks ago. Maybe they’re spooking her?

    btw, the reviews are in. Another reason to support telemetry :)) Has anyone seen this yet? http://artsbeat.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/04/30/falcon-quest/

    There’s no evidence to suggest that the transmitter antenna has any effect on the ability of a falcon to attract a mate. It’s not the physical appearance of a falcon that a potential mate finds attractive. Instead, they’re interested in things like hunting prowess and availability of a territory. In fact, there is documented evidence of a peregrine that successfully mated an raised families for several years while wearing a transmitter.

    It seems likely that Quest just isn’t ready to settle down yet. We’re pretty sure that she’ll get around to settling down in her own good time.
