January - February 2000

Saturday January 1, 2000
Katherine Rich reports:  An apartment full of family and friends were rewarded for their keen eyes today with the best views of Mandy I have witnessed so far.  A peregrine was spotted high in flight over Bloor and Avenue Road at 12:50 PM, soaring above The Four Seasons Hotel, flying down in back of the Colonnade over the few remaining soccer fields below, eventually flying north and out of our sight.

Minutes later Spike and Mandy flew directly over the upper portion of the slanted glass in our living room (southwest corner of Bay and Charles Streets),  and remained in flight not more than 40 feet from the window, in perfect view of everyone, for a minute or so.  About five minutes later Mandy again appeared, soaring high above our west window over St. Mary's St.  She very considerately hovered there for about 15 seconds, so we had a beautiful view of her underside, which is a very light creamy colour, marked with bars on the underwing of light to very dark brown.  There were two or three more sightings throughout the afternoon, the two peregrines seemingly flying around our building (55 Charles West), in close proximity to the windows expressly for our enjoyment.

At 2:00 P.M. a peregrine was sighted flying north over Yorkville from Bloor West, and at 4:00 a single kestrel was spotted moving swiftly northwest from Bay/Charles toward Bloor West.

Harry Crawford reports:  Mandy was seen flying slowly above Bay and Bloor, moving to the east at 9:20am for about ten minutes.  She was on the south east roof of the CIBC building at 3:55pm and moved into a south facing concrete slot at 4:10.  She was still there at end of light at 5:05pm.

Sunday January 2, 2000
Harry Crawford reports:  There was too much fog and mist in the area to accurately identify the birds.  At 1:35pm a peregrine flew west to east above Bloor, landing on the south east corner roof of the CIBC building.  It remained there until 2:00pm.  At 4:25pm one was observed flying towards the north side of the CIBC building.

Monday January 3, 2000
Harry Crawford reports:  Today Mandy took up various positions on the CIBC and Bay buildings between 7:45am and 3:55pm when she moved into a south facing CIBC concrete slot.  She could still be seen there at 4:25.  Spike made a brief appearance at 2:55pm, circling the CIBC building.   There didn't appear to be any interaction between the two peregrines.

Wednesday January 5, 2000
Harry Crawford reports:  Mandy spent most of the day on the south facing Bay logo.  She was first seen at 7:40am, relocating to the south side of the CIBC building at 4:25pm.  She moved into a concrete slot at 4:25 and could still be seen there at 5:00pm.  Spike flew in from the west along Bloor, landing on the south east balcony of 55 Bloor West at 8:20am.    He disappeared from view at 8:55.

The only sighting yesterday was Mandy moving into a south facing concrete slot of the CIBC building at 4:05.

Thursday January 6, 2000
Katherine Rich reports:  A single peregrine, flying too high to identify, was sighted moving straight west over Bloor St. at 10:25 am.

Sunday January 9, 2000
Harry Crawford reports:   Mandy moved into a south facing slot on the CIBC building at 3:35pm.This was earlier than usual, perhaps because of the heavy overcast and light rain that was falling.   The previous three days were similar, except that arrival times at the concrete slot were much later:   4:50pm on Saturday, 4:45pm on Friday and 4:20pm on Thursday. At all times, Mandy was still in the slot at end of light. Except for a brief sighting on Friday when Mandy was on the south east corner of the Bay roof, there were no other sightings over the last four days.

Monday January 10, 2000
Harry Crawford reports: Mandy was on the west side of the CIBC building between 8:55am and 1:35pm.  Spike was in the same area between 9:20am and 11:50am.  Mandy reappeared in a south slot of the same building at 4:50pm.

Wednesday January 12, 2000
Harry Crawford reports:  Spike started off on the bottom of the 'B' of the south facing Bay logo at 8:20am.  He moved to the south side of the CIBC building at 10:45 and remained there until 11:45.    He was seen on the south east corner of the Bay roof at 3:35pm, moved to the south side of the CIBC building at 4:15 and finally into a south concrete slot at 4:40pm.

Yesterday, an unidentified peregrine was flying above Yonge and Bloor at 4:15pm (likely Mandy).  Mandy moved into a concrete slot on the south side of the CIBC building at 5:00pm.

Thursday January 13, 2000
Harry Crawford reports:  Both Spike and Mandy were around the Bay and CIBC buildings most of the day.  They were unusually active, spending little time in one spot.  Several aerial displays made watching interesting.  They also spent time apart as well as together.  Mandy was first to be seen, at 7:50am and was gone by 4:50pm.  Spike appeared at 8:05am and was last seen at 4:40pm.

At 1:35pm when Spike was alone on the Bay building, an adult female and smaller peregrine were circling above Yonge and Bloor, moving south east.  They didn't approach the CIBC or Bay buildings and Spike didn't seem to react.  Mandy was not around, unless the circling female was her.

At 4:10pm five hawk/falcon like birds were circling very high above Yonge and Bloor.    They definitely were not gulls.  This sighting was brief as they passed to the south above Yonge Street.

Friday January 14, 2000
Harry Crawford reports:  Mandy started off on the south CIBC logo at 7:20am, taking up other positions on the CIBC and Bay buildings until 11:10am.  She reappeared at 1:00pm for 20 minutes and again at 3:00pm until 4:25pm when she moved into a south CIBC slot.  She was there at end of light at 5:30pm.  Spike was on the south Bay roof at 7:20am and left at 7:40am.    He reappeared on the south side of the CIBC building at 8:40am and hung around until 9:20.

Saturday January 15, 2000
Harry Crawford reports:    Mandy started out on the west side of the CIBC building at 7:30am and disappeared from view at 10:00.  She was seen soaring above Yonge and Davenport at 1:25pm.   Spike was on the south Bay roof at 7:30am and disappeared at 7:55.   He moved into a south CIBC slot at 4:05pm and was still there at 4:40pm when the light disappeared.

Sunday January 16, 2000
Harry Crawford reports:  Both peregrines were quite active in the area today.  Mandy started out in a south CIBC slot at 10:30am and quickly moved over to the south Bay logo to join Spike who was already there.  They both remained there until 1:45pm when they flew, quite rapidly, west along Bloor.    Spike returned to the south Bay logo at 2:00pm and remained there until 3:20pm when he disappeared.  He was back in the same spot at 3:45 and remained there until 4:55pm.

At 2:15pm Mandy flew to the south balcony of 55 Bloor West [Manulife office tower] with prey, likely a starling.  She quickly ate it and spent the rest of the time until 3:45 preening and just resting on one foot.  She joined Spike on the south Bay logo at 3:45pm, moved into a south CIBC slot at 4:30 and was still there at 5:15pm.  There was quite a bit of snow falling between 3:30 and 5:00pm.

Monday January 17, 2000
Harry Crawford reports:   Mandy was seen on the 'y' of the south facing Bay sign at 7:15am. She remained there until 10:10.  It is incredibly cold today with high winds.  Spike showed up at 9:05am half way up the south side of the CIBC building.  He moved to the east side of the south balcony of 55 Bloor West at 9:35, disappearing at 9:50am.  At 10:40 he was seen eating on the 'y' of the south facing Bay logo.  He was eating again at 11:30am.  At 12:10pm he moved to the south side of the CIBC building and into a concrete slot at 1:30pm, sill seen there at end of light at 5:25pm.  This may have been his way of keeping warm through the intense cold.

Tuesday January 18, 2000
Harry Crawford reports:    Spike started out on the top of the 'y' of the south facing Bay sign at 7:30am.   He left at 8:30 and was seen on the mid level of the west side of the CIBC building at 1:40pm.  He remained in view until 4:50pm.  Mandy spent the day on the west side of the CIBC building, upper ledge, from 8:30am until 4:20pm when she moved into a west concrete slot.  It was difficult to see the falcons with all the snow and steam.

Thursday January 20, 2000
Harry Crawford reports:    Spike started off the day on the top of the west facing logo of the CIBC building at 7:25am, moving to the south logo of the Bay at 11:35.  He remained in that area until 3:30pm when he moved into a south facing CIBC contrete slot and was still there at 5:15pm.  Food was eaten around 2:45pm.  Mandy was seen working her way between Avenue Road and Yonge, above Yorkville around 2:25pm.

Yesterday there were only brief sightings:  Mandy on the west CIBC logo at 7:20am; on the south Bay logo at 12:50pm; and Spike in a west CIBC slot at 4:45pm.

Friday January 21, 2000
Harry Crawford reports:    Spike was on the bottom of the 'B' of the south Bay logo at 7:25am, moving over to the south side of the CIBC building at 8:00am.  He remained there until 10:50.   At 12:20pm Spike and Mandy were on the south facing Bay logo.   Mandy was eating.  Both falcons disappeared at 2:45pm.  Mandy was seen briefly at 2:55 and reappeared on the south side of the CIBC building at 4:35pm, disappearing into a concrete slot at 4:50.  She could still be seen there at 5:25, end of light.  Today was   a bitterly cold day with a strong north west wind in the area.  The Bay logo provided a shield from the wind.

Saturday January 22, 2000
Harry Crawford reports:    Mandy was on the top of the south CIBC logo at 7:15am, moving over to the top of the 'B' of the south Bay logo at 8:10.  She disappeared from view at 11:50 but was seen 'hunting' in the Bloor and Bay area at 1:20pm.  She was back in the area at 3:30pm, settling into a south CIBC slot at 4:50pm.  She was still seen there at 5:15.

Spike's sightings were a little more interesting than usual today. He was seen on the south east corner of the roof of 77 Bloor West at 7:40am, eating.  At 8:10, he moved to the south Bay logo, remaining there until 1:55pm.  At this time, he was back in the same location on 77 Bloor West, once again eating.  He was gone from view at 2:20pm.

Sunday January 23, 2000
Harry Crawford reports:   Spike was on the top of the west CIBC logo at 7:30am, disappearing from view at 10:15.

Monday January 24, 2000
Harry Crawford reports:    Mandy was seen briefly on the south east section of the CIBC roof at 3.35pm. She was staring down a pigeon who was in the middle of the roof ledge, slowly moving towards the falcon.  At 3:50 she was soaring high above the north east at Yonge and Bloor.   She returned to the south side of the CIBC building at 4:20pm and immediately moved into a concrete slot, still being seen there at 5:30pm when there was no more light.

Tuesday January 25, 2000
Harry Crawford reports:    Mandy took up various positions on the CIBC and Bay buildings between 7:25am and 12:35pm.  She returned at 4:25pm and immediately moved into a south CIBC concrete slot, obviously for warmth.

Wednesday January 26, 2000
Harry Crawford reports:  At 7:30am Mandy was on the top of the 'y' of the south facing Bay logo.  She moved onto the middle east side of the 'B' at 7:45 and remained there until 9:50.  After a successful hunt, she returned to the top of the 'y' of the same logo and ate her prey.  She remained on the 'y' until she moved into a south CIBC concrete slot at 4:14pm.  She was still there at end of light at 5:20pm.

Spike was on the same logo between 8:15am and 9:15am.  He reappeared on the south east corner of the balcony of 55 Bloor West at 4:00pm, remaining there until 4:45 when he was seen soaring high above Yonge and Bloor.  Mandy appeared to be slightly agitated at this time and came part way out of her slot for a few minutes.

Thursday January 27, 2000
Harry Crawford reports:    Today was bitterly cold with a strong north wind.  The peregrines did everything they could to squeeze down into corners where they perched.  I presume this was to reduce the surface area exposed to the elements.  Mandy started out on the south facing Bay logo at 7:15am, taking up various positions as the day progressed.   She went hunting at 11:10 and returned at 11:55 with prey.  She disappeared again at 2:20pm, returning with prey once again, at 3:45.  At 4:35pm she moved into a south facing concrete slot on the CIBC building and could still be seen at 5:10pm.

Spike joined Mandy on the Bay logo at 8:20am.  He disappeared at 11:10, returned at 11:55 and finally was out of view by 2:20pm.

Friday January 28, 2000
Harry Crawford reports:    Mandy started out on the south facing Bay sign at 7:15am, remaining there until 11:45 when she was seen flying high north of Yonge and Bloor.  She returned to the Bay logo at 12:00pm and moved to the south side of the CIBC building at 12:50pm.   She alternated between the Bay and CIBC buildings ending on the latter at 4:50pm.   She made a brief visit to a concrete slot at 3:30pm.

Spike was first seen on the south Bay logo at 10:55am.  He moved to the south east balcony of 55 Bloor West at 12:00pm and was seen eating there at 2:55.  He was eating another fresh catch at 4:05 in the same location and disappeared from view at 4:40pm.

Saturday January 29, 2000
Harry Crawford reports:    Between 9:10am and 10:10am, Mandy was on the south Bay logo.  She was seen briefly on the CIBC east antenna at 12:30pm.  She appeared on the south east corner of the CIBC roof at 3:15, moving into a south concrete slot at 3:50.  She was still there at end of light around 5:40pm.  Spike made a brief appearance on the south east corner of the roof at 77 Bloor West at 4:15pm.

Sunday January 30, 2000
Harry Crawford reports:   Mandy was on the top of the west CIBC logo between 7:30am and 11:20am.  She reappeared briefly on the CIBC east antenna at 12:30pm and again between 3:25pm and 4:25pm.  She finally moved into a south concrete slot at 4:50.  Spike was seen flying around Yonge and Bloor for a short time around 4:10pm.  Mandy appeared to be somewhat agitated at the fly passes.

Monday January 31, 2000
Harry Crawford reports:  Mandy spent the time between 10:45am and 1:00pm on the south Bay logo.  Then she was briefly seen soaring high above Yonge and Bloor, moving slowly to the north.   She reappeared briefly on the Bay logo at 3:05pm and returned there at 4:55pm.   At 5:10 she moved into a south CIBC concrete slot and could still be seen there at 5:45pm.

Spike was on the south Bay logo [with Mandy] between 12:25pm and 1:00pm and was also seen briefly on the south east corner of the balcony of 55 Bloor West at 3:05pm.  He returned to this location with fresh prey at 3:55pm, remaining there until 5:10pm.

Yesterday, Mandy was seen in a south CIBC slot at 4:55pm.  This was the only sighting of the day.

Wednesday February 2, 2000
Harry Crawford reports:   Mandy started out on the west side of the CIBC building at 7:10am, quickly moving to the south facing Bay logo at 7:25.  She remained there until 12:50pm when she moved to the south east corner of the CIBC building.  She made a brief visit to the Bay logo at 1:45 and then disappeared from view until 4:05 when she briefly moved into a south CIBC concrete slot; visited the Bay logo from 4:30 to 4:50; and finally moved back into a concrete slot.   She was still there at 5:30pm.

Spike joined Mandy on the Bay logo between 10:30am and 12:10pm.  He was later seen at his new feeding spot on the south east balcony corner of 55 Bloor West at 2:35.  He cleaned up leftovers and spent a lot of time preening and then disappeared from view at 3:45pm.

Thursday February 3, 2000
Harry Crawford reports:    At 4:20pm Spike was in a slot mid way up the west side of the CIBC building.   He moved into an upper slot on the same side at 4:40 and was still there at 5:25pm.

Friday February 4, 2000
Harry Crawford reports:    Mandy was in the Yonge and Bloor area most of the day alternating between the CIBC and Bay buildings.  I spotted her at 7:15am on the east CIBC logo and she ended the day in a south slot in the same building at 5:40pm.  Apart from the usual spots, she visited both the east CIBC antenna (5:00pm) and the west antenna (5:30pm).

Sunday February 6, 2000
Harry Crawford reports:   Spike was on the 'y' of the south facing Bay sign from 7:15am until 7:50.  He returned to a south facing CIBC slot at 5:10pm and was still seen there at 5:45pm.   Mandy was seen on the north east corner of 60 Bloor West at 4:10pm when I was walking along Bloor Street. There were no sightings on Saturday.

Monday February 7, 2000
Harry Crawford reports:    Mandy was on the south facing Bay logo between 8:05am and 12:30pm. She was seen later, on the south side of the CIBC building at 3:20pm, remaining there until 5:05pm when she made a brief visit to the south Bay logo.  Spike spent most of the day in his 'new' location on the south east corner of the south balcony of 55 Bloor West.   He arrived there at 10:15am and left at 4:10pm.

Tuesday February 8, 2000
Harry Crawford reports:    Between 7:05am and 7:30am Mandy was on the west logo of the CIBC building.   Spike was seen in a south facing slot of the same building at 5:35pm.

Wednesday February 9, 2000
Harry Crawford reports:    At 3:55pm, Spike was in a west slot on the CIBC building, still being seen at the end of visibility at 5:30pm.  Mandy was briefly seen on the south east corner of the roof of 55 Bloor West at 5:00pm.

Thursday February 10, 2000
Harry Crawford reports:    Mandy started off on the upper part of the west side of the CIBC building at 7:20am and remained there until 4:40pm when you couldn't see her because of the snow storm.   Spike started off on the ledge half way up the same side of the building as Mandy at 7:55am.  He joined Mandy on the upper ledge at 8:55 and except for a brief visit to the east part of the balcony of 55 Bloor West at 10:35, remained with Mandy until 3:45pm when he moved into a concrete slot.  He could still be seen there at 4:10pm.

Friday February 11, 2000
Harry Crawford reports:    Both peregrines spent most of the day on the south facing Bay logo. Mandy was first seen at 7:55am.  At 4:35pm she moved into a south facing concrete slot on the CIBC building and could still be seen there at 5:35pm.  Spike arrived at 8:25am and stayed with Mandy until 4:00pm when he was seen briefly at 60 Bloor West, returning with prey to the south east balcony of 55 Bloor West shortly after. He was gone from view by 4:35pm.   Both birds were seen flying around the area at 9:25am.

Saturday February 12, 2000
Harry Crawford reports:    Mandy was on the top of the west facing CIBC logo at first light, 7:00am, moving over to the south logo at 10:15am.  She disappeared from view at 12:30pm.   Spike joined Mandy at 7:55am on the west CIBC logo and remained there until 11:55am.  He reappeared in a south CIBC slot at 5:40pm.  At 5:10pm an unidentified peregrine was circling the CIBC building and landed on the north side.   It was likely Spike and further confirms that the birds are probably in the area more often than I am seeing, simply because of my restricted view.

Sunday February 13, 2000
Harry Crawford reports:   At first light, 7:10am, Mandy was seen on the top of the west facing CIBC logo.   She moved to the ledge below at 9:05 and remained there until 10:55 when she was seen flying west, low above Yorkville Ave. She returned to the west side of the CIBC building at 12:25pm, remaining there until 4:40pm when she moved into a south facing concrete slot.  She was still there at 5:15 even though viewing was difficult because of the snow and steam.

Spike appeared on the south CIBC logo at 9:55am, just above Mandy. He was gone by 10:20am.

Monday February 14, 2000
Harry Crawford reports:    At 8:55am Spike was on the inside of the 'a' of the south facing Bay sign.   He remained there until 12:30pm when he was seen speeding west above Bloor West.   He headed north, out of view, around Avenue Road.  Spike returned to the top of the 'B' of the same sign at 2:50pm, remaining there until 4:10pm.

Mandy was on the top of the west facing CIBC logo at 8:55am, remaining there until 12:35pm.  She reappeared at 2:25pm on the south Bay sign, remaining there until 5:05pm.  She then moved into a south concrete slot and could still be seen at 6:10pm.

Tuesday February 15, 2000
Jennifer Barr reports: I just saw both Victoria and Kingsley flying and playing in the wind currents on the north side of the First Canadian Place (up at about the 40th to 60th floors).  They did that for about 5 minutes.  Right now Victoria is back sitting on the north east corner of 130 Adelaide, a spot she spent a lot of time in last year before they nested on the Sheraton Hotel.  Hopefully this is a good sign!

Wednesday February 16, 2000
Harry Crawford reports:    Spike and Mandy were in the area most of the day.  However, until late afternoon, they didn't remain in one place for very long.  Most of the sightings were on the south facing Bay sign with the exception of Mandy's 9:20am appearance on the south east corner of 66 Bloor W.  Mandy finally moved into a south facing concrete slot on the CIBC building at 5:20pm.  The only sighting yesterday was of Spike moving into a south CIBC slot at 5:40pm.

Sunday February 17, 2000
Harry Crawford reports:    As with yesterday, Spike and Mandy were in the area most of the day.   Spike started out on the top of the south CIBC logo at 6:55am and Mandy was on the south Bay logo at the same time.  Mandy disappeared from view at 5:35pm while Spike moved into a south CIBC slot at 5:15pm, sill in view at 6:10pm.

Thom Zverina reports seeing a red-tailed hawk being attacked by two peregrine falcons when he was passing by City Hall today.  He wasn't specific about the time.  I can only assume that Kingsley and Victoria are in the area and are protecting their territory.

Sunday February 18, 2000
Harry Crawford reports:    Spike and Mandy took up their usual 'storm' positions on the west side of the CIBC building today.  Mandy was on the top of the logo at 7:00am and Spike joined her on the ledge at 8:20am.  Mandy left at 3:40pm and Spike at 12:30pm.  They were back on the same side of the building at 4:00pm and could still be seen at 5:00pm when the snow became to heavy to view anything.

Sunday February 19, 2000
Harry Crawford reports:    Both Spike and Mandy were on the south side of the Bay building at 7:10am.    Most of the time was spent on the logo.  Spike disappeared at 9:40 and Mandy at 11:25. Mandy was on the south east corner of the CIBC building roof at 3:45pm and moved into a south slot at 4:40pm, still being seen there at 6:00pm.

Sunday February 20, 2000
Harry Crawford reports:    Mandy appeared on the south side of the CIBC building at 3:55pm remaining there until 4:35pm when she moved into a south facing slot.  She could still be seen there at 6:10pm.

Sunday February 21, 2000
Harry Crawford reports:    At 6:55am Spike was on the west side of the CIBC building for 15 minutes.   He came back to the south side of the same building at 5:10pm and moved into a south concrete slot at 5:20.  He was still seen there at 6:00pm.

Mandy was on the south east corner of 66 Bloor West between 9:10am and 9:25am.  She returned to the same spot with prey at 5:35pm after circling the Yonge and Bloor area for 15 minutes.  Unfortunately the prey wasn't dead and its wings were flapping frantically.  Mandy then took it (likely a starling) for a flight over to Yonge Street and back.  She then removed the feathers and ate it.  The light was nearly gone by 6:05pm when she flew up to the east CIBC antenna and remained a silhouette until 6:25pm.

Wednesday February 23, 2000
Harry Crawford reports:  Spike appeared on the south side of the CIBC building at 2:50pm, remaining there until 4:40pm when he moved into a south facing concrete slot. He could still be seen there through the fog at 5:30pm. Yesterday, Mandy made a brief appearance on the east CIBC antenna between 5:20pm and 5:35pm.

Thursday February 24, 2000
Tom Moreau reports:
At 0815 Kingsley and Victoria were seen flying around Adelaide and York Streets.  She flew up and landed on the northwest corner of the Exchange Tower.  Meanwhile, Kingsley put on a magnificent display of soaring.  He circled continuously, higher and higher until he flew out of view.  At 0830, Victoria left her perch.  Later, at 1100, both arrived back and Victoria landed on her original spot.  Kingsley attempted to join her but she drove him away.  At 1106, she left her spot again.

Saturday February 26, 2000
Tom Moreau reports:
At 4:00pm Mandy appeared on the east CIBC antenna. She remained there until 5:20pm when she moved into a south CIBC concrete slot for the night. She could still be seen there at 6:00pm. Yesterday, Friday, both Spike and Mandy were seen briefly between 12:20pm and 12:45pm on the west side of the CIBC building. Fog prevented any other sightings that day.

Sunday February 27, 2000
Tom Moreau reports:
At 9:05am Mandy made a number of slow passes north of 44 Charles West at approximately the 35th floor level. She was very close to the building. At 5:00pm was in a south CIBC concrete slot.

Monday February 28, 2000
Tom Moreau reports:
At 8:35am both Spike and Mandy were on the south side of the CIBC building. Mandy was eating a pigeon. She flew off at 9:00 leaving the carcass to Spike for finishing. While Spike was eating, at 9:10, two peregrines were circling overhead -- there was no chase, just slow circling. Spike relocated to the 'y' of the south facing Bay sign at 9:15, remaining there until 9:35am. At 9:25 Mandy flew slowly by from east to west, carrying prey [light brown and white - starling sized]. She disappeared towards Yorkville and Avenue Road.

From 9:45am [Spike] and 2:30pm [Mandy] both birds were on various areas of the Bay and CIBC buildings, not staying in one spot for very long. Spike ended the day in a south CIBC slot at 5:45pm and the same for Mandy at 5:45pm. This is the first time I have seen them in slots on the same level at the same time.

Tom Moreau reports:
Both Spike and Mandy were seen throughout the day. They didn't stay in one spot for very long, however, taking up various positions on both the CIBC and Bay buildings. Mandy was seen between 6:35am and 8:05am, briefly at 1:30pm and 4:25pm. She retired into a south CIBC slot at 6:00pm. Spike was spotted between 7:05am and 8:05am and briefly seen flying around at 8:50am. They are being seen together more and more and in closer proximity to each other.
