Quest seems to have found a preferred location in Port Hope, a few miles west of Cobourg, Ontario. She continued her late May stay there until June 2nd when she flew to a rural area 15 miles west of Kingston, Ontario. She spent 2 days there before returning to Port Hope.

This is a rural area covered with woodlands and agricultural fields on the lake shore that seems to have little in the way of tall buildings or other structures from which Quest could hunt. It’s likely that she’s dining on shorebirds or perhaps some smaller arboreal birds.

By the way, we’re trying something new. Beginning today we’re publishing a new map that will always show Quest’s movements for the last seven days. Each day we’ll update the map with the most recent information that we have. That way you can follow her travels on a daily basis.

You can find Quest’s one-week rolling map by clicking here or selecting it from the list of pages at the upper right side of this page.

    I have a place up near the river, I’m certainly going to be checking to see if she is in the area. There is certainly food on “my” peninsula, including my cat Dirt – uh, oh…

  8. Alison in Indiana Says:

    Chicki, your cat is not on the peregrine menu unless she is flying high enough for her to be hit in the air by a stooping peregrine flying dozens of mph. 🙂 But a cat might be for some other raptor, if it is big enough – however the way of the world is that cats eat birds, but rarely does a bird eat a cat. Cats are predators, also near the top of the food chain.

    I’ll let her know! We do have a pair of Eagles, and a couple Goshawks, but the barn swallows keep Dirt low to the ground. It would make my day to get a glimpse of Quest someday!

    I sure wish there were some passionate birder in Cobourg (given the prevalence of birders in NA there are probably a few) who would go look for Quest and snap a picture. We were spoliled while Quest was on the Cape.
