Nothing downtown yet. And Lily has removed at least one failed egg from the nest. So it isn't looking too promising this spring.

I checked with Barry the bird man today who was sitting on the Beach Trail with his bird scope, he told me that there were three healthy looking fledglings in the Bridge nesting box. There should be a banding soon.

Just an update, there wasn't a banding for our new additions this year(2019) so we don't have any new names to report. We still have two adults but only ended up with two offspring. The first picture shows one of the juveniles who just lost a kill to a gull, the falcon knock a pigeon to the ground near the south east side of the bridge only to have the gull drag it into the canal.

This (grainy) picture shows one of the adults sitting on the nesting box, the box is located on the north tower, canal side windows.
