March - April 2002

Saturday March 2, 2002
Linda Woods reports:  10:00. Victoria on the south-west corner of # 33 Victoria St. Vocalizing could be heard. I waited to see if Kingsley would appear but he didn't. Victoria flew off to the south circled over the King Edward Hotel and then headed west towards the Scotia Plaza. I checked the south side of Sheraton Hotel but I didn't see Kingsley or Victoria in that area.

Sunday March 3, 2002
Linda Woods reports:  09:00 Victoria is heading east along King St. approaching #18 King. Appears she is chasing a small bird. I don't see her head back.  

12:15 Victoria is on the north-east side of # 33 Victoria St.  12:20 Victoria off # 33 and over to #18 nest ledge.  She is on the ledge facing inwards  with her feathers all puffed up. She is not there long and she enters the ledge disappears behind the pillar and reappears on the other side. She was still on the ledge when I left the area at 12:35p.m.

Tuesday March 5, 2002
Jennifer Barr reports:  4:45 pm. Both Kingsley and Victoria just flew by (within 30 feet of my window) on their way to landing at the old nest site on the Sheraton Hotel.  Maybe they still haven't decided where to nest?

Linda Woods reports:  12:20p.m. Viewing from Leader Lane, adult on east side roof-top #18 King St. Can't be sure who it is.  5:58p.m. Viewing from Bay St. looking south, one adult seen on the north-east corner roof-top of One Financial Place. Don't know how long it was there before I spotted it. I looked again at 6:00p.m. and it was gone. 

Wednesday March 6, 2002
Linda Woods reports:  This afternoon I was walking along King St. west of University. I was in the area of Roy Thompson Hall and happened to look up and saw a bird on the north-west corner roof-top. The brown brick buildings is opposite Roy Thompson Hall. I'm not sure if it was one of the King St. birds. It sat on the corner like a peregrine, only facing north with it's tail draped over the side of the building. The chest markings were a dirty white. Perhaps it was Victoria after having a muddy puddle bath.

Thursday March 7, 2002
Jennifer Barr reports:  10:55 am.  And there they are again!  One at the next box and the other a few feet away on that black box.  I guess the Sheraton is a good place to ride out snow storms, they were there for quite some time yesterday too.  11:18 am.  They are both still at the old nest site but now one of them has entered the old nest tray.  And I think she's lying down in there.

Jan Chudy reports:  1:15 pm. I am very happy to report that Victoria and Kingsley spent the whole morning sitting on the Sheraton nest site.

Paul Marshman reports:  Looking from Church St. about 1:05, I saw what looked like one falcon on top of the nest building. A second later there were two side by side, so I think what I actually saw was Kingsley and Victoria mating.  When I came back at 1:30 they were gone. However, I guess this proves they're still frequenting the Victoria St. nest site and exhibiting nesting behaviour.

Saturday March 9, 2002
Linda Woods reports: 07:38 While looking south on Bay St. I could see one adult on the north-east corner roof-top of One Financial Place. A few minutes later I looked again and it was gone.  09:30 Viewing from Leader Lane, I think it was Victoria on the north-east corner roof-top of One Financial Place. She kept disappearing from view. Kingsley was not in sight. I checked the area again at 12:30 and didn't see any sign of the pair around #18 King nor the Sheraton Hotel.

Sunday March 10, 2002
Linda Woods reports: 09:15 Viewing from Leader Lane, both Kingsley and Victoria are on the nest ledge.

12:10p.m. Adult on the north-east corner of # 33 Victoria St. it flew over to the nest ledge. Second adult not seen at this time. Adult  is there for a few minutes, vocalizing can be heard. Second adult appears in view and lands on the nest ledge. It then disappears behind the nest pillar and is not seen. Faint vocalizing can be heard and I think it's coming from behind the pillar. 12:25 Second adult re-appears from behind the pillar and is sitting on the ledge under the cable. Both adults are now visible together at the nest ledge and it's difficult to tell who is who, they are both all fluffed up and appear to be the same size and same colouring.

Monday March 11, 2002
Linda Woods reports:  6:05 pm. Looking south on Bay St. one adult on the north-east corner roof-top of One Financial Place.

Paul Marshman reports:  I passed by the Victoria St. nest site about 11 a.m. and saw one peregrine on the nest building, in the second square from the north. It was Victoria, and a second later Kingsley appeared in the square next to her. They looked very domestic, sitting there enjoying the sunshine.

Wednesday March 13, 2002
Paul Marshman reports:  At 10:20 a.m., I spy Victoria sitting on one of the east steps of the Scotia Tower, enjoying the brilliant sunshine. A minute later, Kingsley appears on the bottom steps. For the next 10 minutes he appears and disappears on the step. They are both still there when I leave at 10:30.

6:10 p.m. I am walking down Yonge St. when I look up and see a falcon, which I assume is Victoria, circling in front of the Scotia Tower. A minute later another falcon appears -- obviously Kingsley -- and joins her. He follows as she heads off to the west, over First Canadian Place, and I catch only a glimpse or two of them after that, but they've obviously getting maximum enjoyment from the clear skies and the nice weather.

Thursday March 14, 2002
Linda Woods reports:  8:45 am.  Viewing the south side of the Sheraton Hotel. At first I didn't see anything, a few moments later I look up and one adult is on the louvered ledge on the south side of the Sheraton Hotel. This adult takes off and is seen soaring in the area south of the hotel. Second adult appears on the same louvered ledge. I guess they were both in there together. Second adult leaves the ledge and follows the first. I  walk south on York St. and as I approach King and York Sts, both adults are seen flying high above the office buildings. I am going to assume they were making their way over to the Scotia Tower.

Jennifer Barr reports:  Both Kingsley & Victoria are at the old nest site on the Sheraton Hotel this morning in their usual spots.  Kingsley is standing on that small box and Victoria is standing on the edge of the nest box.

They have been very active this week and seem to have somewhere to go down by the Canada Life building out of my view.  I've seen one or both of them together do this many times in the last few months.

Friday March 15, 2002
David Dean reports:  7:05 AM Walking south on Bay, I noticed Kingsley circling the in Bay/Adelaide area, just west of Scotia tower. After climbing to a good height, he fluttered his wings and entered a stoop, which ended when he set down on the second building west of Bay on the north side of Adelaide.

Linda Woods reports:  Between 08:30 and 09:10. I looked for Kingsley and Victoria. I first checked the south side of the Sheraton Hotel and didn't see anything. I then made my way towards King and Church St. No activity was noted in any of the areas including #18 King St. I was disappointed not to see them during this time.

5:20p.m. Riding the street car north-bound on Bathurst, a peregrine was seen in the air at King St. The bird was heading east towards the downtown core. I think it may have been Victoria.

Sunday March 17, 2002
Adam Bryk reports:  11:10 am. What I believe is the female of the pair is perched on the NE corner, 28th floor of One Financial Place, just below my office.  At 11:30 it is still there when a smaller falcon arrives after a couple of times flying by.  The new one has caught a mouse or a rat or something.  The larger bird takes it and eats it over the next 10+ minutes.  The smaller falcon stays but does not eat.  They are both still there at 11:40 when I left.

Monday March 18, 2002
Linda Woods reports:  12:40p.m. Viewing from Leader Lane, Victoria is seen at the former nest ledge # 18 King St. East.  1:25p.m. Victoria has now moved to the north-east corner roof-top of the King Edward Hotel. I looked around for Kingsley but did not see him.

Paul Marshman reports:  About 2:20 in the afternoon I looked out my window at the gulls circling above the gardens on the east side of St. James' Cathedral. I noticed a different-looking bird, and on a closer look found it was a peregrine, likely circling over the parkland in search of a meal. As I watched, it veered off and flew right over me, heading toward the Victoria St. nest site. Judging by the size, I'm guessing it was Victoria. Passing by the nest site a few minutes later, I saw no sign of the falcons. However, I did see a big window-washing scaffold on the east side of the Scotia Tower. Victoria and Kingsley have been scarce the past few days, and since the scaffold was around late last week also, this may be the reason.

Tuesday March 19, 2002
Bruce Massey reports:  3:45 pm Kingsley and Victoria are seen on an Adelaide St. office building ( I think 130 Adelaide) south of the Sheraton.

Saturday March 23, 2002
Linda Woods reports:  09:45 Both Kingsley and Victoria are seen on One Financial Place, one on each lower ledge.  11:45 Victoria is on the nest ledge, east side #18 King.

Paul Marshman reports:  About 9:30 a.m. Zoe Berger and I were at Leader Lane, to look for the falcons, and saw one sitting on the Scotia Tower. It soon disappeared, and reappeared landing on the Victoria St. nest ledge. We heard vocalizing, and a moment later the second peregrine appeared. It flew down King St., returned, and settled on one of the steps of One Financial Place. More vocalizing, and the peregrine at the nest (obviously Kingsley) took off, flew around a bit, returned and mated with Victoria on One Financial Place. They then took their places at both ends of the step, like book-ends, and stayed there for quite a while. So while they may be spending some time at the Sheraton, they're still acting pretty domestic at Victoria St.

Sunday March 24, 2002
Linda Woods reports:  08:30 No activity seen on the south side of the Sheraton Hotel or in the area of Leader Lane.  10:30 Victoria is on the lower east ledge of One Financial Place. She later moved to the south roof-top of # 33 Victoria St.  Kingsley was not seen during these times.

Monday March 25, 2002
Linda Woods reports:  10:20 Walking south on York St. I saw one adult approaching the south side of Sheraton Hotel from the southeast. Adult entered the slots and disappeared. I didn't see any activity in the Leader Lane area.

Wednesday March 27, 2002
Jennifer Barr reports:  10:40 am.  Back to their familiar spots, one peregrine is standing on the nest ledge at the Sheraton next to the hack box, the other is on the south face of 390 Bay (at the west most corner). 

Linda Woods reports:  11:45 Both Kingsley and Victoria are seen in the slots on the south side of the Sheraton Hotel.

5:05 pm. Victoria is seen on the south side Sheraton Hotel. Kingsley approaches the slots from the south-east. One adult takes off and heads towards the south-east shortly after.

Marcel Gahbauer reports:  Sara Jean Peters has informed us that Lucy, hatched in Toronto in 1998, is nesting for the second consecutive year on a bridge at Ironton, Ohio.  Two other pairs of peregrines in Ohio are already incubating eggs, and several more are expected to begin laying eggs shortly.

Thursday March 28, 2002
Jennifer Barr reports:  At 9:30 this morning I looked out at the Sheraton Hotel to see about 5 crows perched on the two radio towers.  Just as I was thinking that that would likely turn Kingsley and Victoria off the building, one of them came flying out no where and dive bombed the crows!   The peregrine then returned to the nest site.  The crows are now no where to be seen.

Paul Marshman reports:  About 10:20 a.m. I spied Victoria and Kingsley on the east steps of the Scotia Tower, Kingsley sitting almost directly above Victoria. Almost immediately Kingsley took off, flew down to where Victoria was and mated with her, then flew back to his perch above her. A minute later he was gone (I didn't see which direction he went). However, Victoria stayed in her sunny spot on the tower and was still there when I went in, about 10:40.  

At 5:30 p.m., I found a falcon I took to be Kingsley sitting on top of the Victoria St. nest building. He was there until I left at 5:45, but no sign of Victoria.

Friday March 29, 2002
Linda Woods reports:  (This report is from Jeff) 12:00- 3:00p.m. Kingsley and Victoria were seen sitting on the nest ledge of #18 King St.

Saturday March 30, 2002
Paul Marshman reports:  I came out about 9:30 a.m. Saturday and found Kingsley sitting on the Victoria St. nest ledge. He was still there around 10:30 when I returned, but soon flew off, heading west down King St. and then turning south. At 12:00 I came by again and found both Kingsley and Victoria sitting on the east steps of the Scotia Tower. They were gone by 1:15 when I came out again. They seemed pretty active during the day, as I saw them flying both east and west across the neighbourhood.

Linda Woods reports: Kingsley and Victoria were seen on the east side Scotia Tower, mating seen

Sunday March 31, 2002
Linda Woods reports:  10:00 Kingsley and Victoria are seen on one of the upper ledges, east side Scotia Plaza.  11:00 Kingsley and Victoria have moved to the bottom ledge east side Scotia Plaza. They are once again sitting beside each other facing east. Window washer crane is out so I doubt they will be there much longer.  11:20 Both Kingsley and Victoria have departed from the bottom ledge. Kingsley is now on the camera ledge east side # 18 King. Victoria is not seen at this time. I checked the south side of the Sheraton but she was not in view.

Wednesday April 3, 2002
Linda Woods reports:  2:20- 2:45p.m. Walking south on Church St. I stopped by the Parish Hall and saw Victoria at the nest ledge, she then flew off to sit on the bottom ledge east side of One Financial Place.  4:00p.m. Kingsley and Victoria are on the east and south bottom ledges of One Financial Place.  5:00p.m. One adult on the roof of # 18 King St.

Thursday April 4, 2002
Linda Woods reports:  11:40a.m. Viewing from York and Adelaide St., window washers on the south side Sheraton Hotel directly under and moving passed the nesting area. No birds in sight.  12:15p.m. Viewing from Leader Lane, Victoria appears on the ledge from behind the nest pillar. She takes off and is seen flying low over the area of the Leader Lane parking lot. Kingsley then appears on the ledge. Vocalizing can be heard and he to is off to join Victoria in a noon time fly around the area. Victoria then heads back and sets down on the bottom ledge of One Financial Place.

Saturday April 6, 2002
Linda Woods reports:  09:30 Viewing from Toronto St. I didn't see any activity in the area of # 18 King St.  Kingsley was on the bottom ledge of Scotia Plaza.   11:50 On my return trip past # 18 King St. Kingsley and Victoria were not in sight.

Harry Crawford reports:  When I arrived at Leader Lane at 10:06am, Kingsley was on the south east corner of One Financial Place (formerly the Trust), on the lower south east corner, closest to last year's nest ledge.  He had a full crop and was preening.  He was still there when I left the area at 10:50am.  There was no sign of Victoria.

Sunday April 7, 2002
Linda Woods reports:  09:50 Kingsley on the east side Scotia Plaza near the top. Victoria not seen.  5:45p.m. One adult, centre ledge of One Financial Place.

Monday April 8, 2002
Linda Woods reports:  1:30p.m. Viewing from the upper levels of the King Edward Hotel, I could see one adult behind the nest pillar of #18 King St. I could only see the back half of the bird, but it was definitely poking around behind the pillar and eventually laid down. Very difficult to see after it settled down. Back out to street level, another peregrine was seen flying around the north side of Scotia Plaza and then gone from view. I left the area around 2:30p.m. when it started to rain.

Tuesday April 9, 2002
Mark Nash reports:  It appears that Kingsley and Victoria have made their selection, and have at least one egg (if not two) as of today.  In either case, we will be starting the count down tomorrow (33 to 35 days until hatch).  Victoria has gone into full incubation, suggesting that she has at least two eggs if not more.  We will be looking for a Toronto downtown hatch at 18 King around May 13th - 14th - 15th - 16th time.

Wednesday April 10, 2002
Linda Woods reports:  1:05p.m. Male on upper ledges of Scotia Plaza. (Kingsley, I'm assuming)  1:33p.m. Second adult, female and assuming it's Victoria is seen coming out of the north and circling the east side of the Scotia Plaza. It spots the male on the upper ledge and approaches him, flutters her wings directly above him and then takes off towards the north. The male takes off and follows her northward.  1:50p.m. Female is seen heading back to the King and Toronto St. area and flies out of view over # 1 Toronto St. No interaction with #18 King St. seen during this time.  2:00p.m. Kingsley and Victoria not in view at this time.

Glenn Anderson reports:  3:50 pm - I'm currently observing one peregrine perched on what appears to be the 26th floor ledge across the street on the Bank of Commerce building and a second perched on the north east corner of the 24th floor.

Thursday April 11, 2002
Linda Woods reports:  12:15 Viewing from Leader Lane, Adults weren't in view until a crow happen to be lazily passing near # 18 King St. Kingsley came out of nowhere and chased the crow east to Church St. Kingsley made his way back to #18 King and set down on the nest ledge. He entered one side of the pillar and Victoria appeared on the other side of the same pillar and took off west long King St.

1:00p.m. Back to Leader Lane one adult seen entering the nest ledge. Second adult is seen approaching the top of the Scotia Tower from the north and set down on one of the upper ledges. It's really hazy and difficult to identify but my guess is that it's Kingsley. Kingsley came off the tower fast and then next thing we see is a Kestrel swooping the peregrine. This was happening so fast I couldn't keep track if it was Kingsley or Victoria had come out of the nesting area to help. Adult peregrine set down on the south side of # 33 Victoria St. when the Kestrel took another dive at the adult peregrine. Well enough was enough and the peregrine promptly went after the Kestrel and chased it off to the south-east. It was last seen heading over Front and Church St.

Friday April 12, 2002
Paul Marshman reports:  I was walking down Victoria St. at 6:30 and saw a peregrine fly into the nest from the south. Just as I got over to Toronto St., one flew out of the nest. I could see the second disappear behind the pillar. I went to King St. and found the other one sitting on the CHFI building -- from the size it seemed to be Victoria.

Saturday April 13, 2002
Linda Woods reports:  10:00 Viewing from Leader Lane, one adult seen at the nest ledge, second adult not in view.  1:00p.m. Victoria is on CHFI facing east. She is keeping an eye on the workers on the roof of # 33 Victoria St. The workers are installing some sort of scaffolding or barriers up there. 

Tuesday April 16, 2002
Linda Woods reports:  12:00 One adult seen on the bottom ledge Scotia Plaza. Second adult not seen at this time.  12:10p.m. Adult gone from bottom ledge of Scotia Plaza. A lot of people out walking around and stopping to inquire about Kingsley and Victoria. I missed the departure, but the next thing I see is Victoria at the nest ledge. Didn't see if she landed on the ledge or came out from behind the pillar. More people stopping and then I didn't see if she went behind the pillar or took off. 12:25 Walking west along King St. towards Bay St. Victoria seen high in the sky above First Canadian Place she eventually drifted to the south-east towards The T.D Centre.

Adam Bryk reports:  1:40 pm.  Feathers flying by my window alerted me to a small Peregrine sitting on the NE 28th floor ledge of One Financial Place (Yonge and Adelaide) eating a bird.  Fed alone for several minutes more minutes, then left flying to the North East at 1:47PM after taking a minute to clean its claws.

Wednesday April 17, 2002
Linda Woods reports:  09:30 Viewing from Leader Lane I didn't see either Kingsley or Victoria in the area.  09:50 One adult seen heading south along Victoria St. It must have been on CHFI. I think it's Victoria. She went out of my view over the King Edward Hotel.  10:10 Victoria must  have been on the smoke stack at the King Edward Hotel as she reappeared heading north towards One Financial Place. Set down on the bottom ledge momentarily and then over to the nest ledge on # 18 King. She hopped down into the ledge and disappeared behind the pillar. I was waiting for Kingsley to appear on the ledge but he didn't. I guess they were both out for a morning fly around. Shortly thereafter Kingsley was seen in the air around the Scotia Plaza.

Thursday April 18, 2002
Linda Woods reports:  12:15p.m. Victoria is seen on the south facing area of the CHFI cooling tower. Kingsley not seen at this time. Work continues on # 36 Toronto St. roof-top.  1:30p.m. Victoria gone from CHFI and not in view. Kingsley is on the top south ledge of Scotia Plaza. Another warm day.
