She sets down on the north louvered ledge of the office building on the corner of Dundas and Chestnut St. A lot of wash noticed  in the area she sets down on, indication that she or Windwhistler have spent some time there before. Perhaps this the she has been going to when seen heading south late in the evening.  6:10p.m. Both adults remain in the same areas.

Saturday February 23, 2002
Harry Crawford reports:  One of the peregrines was seen on the south side of the CIBC building from 6:40 to 6:52am.  It looked like Mandy and she probably spent the night there.  At the time she disappeared, workers started to arrive on the Bay roof.

Harry Crawford reports:  At 5:01pm, Mandy and Windwhistler-Spike were on the south east corner of the 55 Bloor West balcony -- Mandy feeding on a pigeon. Windwhistler-Spike was just west of her, slowly approaching, one talon at a time, vocalising.  He stopped about 3 bird widths from her and just watched.  At 5:18 he was successful, with both birds sharing the prey.  Mandy took off to the south west at 5:23, leaving Windwhistler-Spike to continue feeding.  He took off in the same direction at 5:25pm, carrying what was left of the prey in his talons.

Linda Woods reports:  5:34 Both adults are not seen at this time.  5:50 Windwhistler has returned to the south-east corner of Mount Sinai Hospital. He usually sits on the corner facing west. At this time he is seen facing south. I look for Mandy but she is not seen.

Thursday February 21, 2002
Linda Woods reports:  06:56 One adult seen on the south-east corner of Mount Sinai Hospital.  07:10 Gone from that area.

08:24 Both adults are now on the east ledges of Mount Sinai Mandy is on the louvered ledges and the Windwhistler is on a ledge just below and appears to have just caught breakfast. Windwhistler leaves his ledge and flies to the 3rd ledge. Mandy leaves her spot and sets down on the 3rd ledge. Windwhistler is off again, circles back and joins Mandy on the 3rd ledge. Mating is seen. Windwhistler flies off and sets down again on the 2nd ledge. He then steps back into the ledge and reappears a moment later. Mandy then walks north along the ledge towards  Windwhistler. Windwhistler is off again and finally sets down again on the 2nd ledge from the north.

08:35 - 10:21 Both adults remain on the east side of Mount Sinai. It's been raining all morning so I don't expect much activity. 10:54 Mandy doesn't appear to have changed positions. Both adults have remained on the east side of MSH. Windwhistler has changed ledges a few times but always remains near Mandy. 11:01 Still raining, and peregrines still on the east side.  11:19 Mandy remains on the 3rd ledge. Windwhistler has moved to the south-east corner roof-top of the hospital. 12:00
Mandy is still on the east side of the hospital. Windwhistler is gone and so is the meal that had been previously stashed on the lower ledge.

12:05 Mandy is now seen flying south with prey in her talons. She sets down on the north-east roof-top of 505 University Ave. I can clearly see the prey and it doesn't look like the previous meal that was stashed early in the morning. This one is much lighter in colour. Mandy flies off again with the prey and sets down on the north-west corner of 505 University Ave. This time she pushes the prey onto the roof-top and then hops down. I can only see her head bopping up and down so I'm assuming she is cleaning her meal.

12:11 Can't see her at all right now. She is either eating her meal or she has flown off.  12:38 It continues to rain. Mandy on the east side MSH, 2nd ledge. Windwhistler on the north facing logo of National Life.  12:45 Windwhistler has moved from National Life and returns to the east side of Mt. Sinai.  12:50 Mandy is now seen on the north-east corner of National Life cleaning prey (lots of feathers blowing around). Windwhistler is on the lower ledges, east side MSH.

Margaret Omnet reports:  At 1.05 pm, one bird on N.E. corner of National Life building. At 1.15pm, bird  gone from National Life but one on the east side of Mount Sinai, 3rd ledge from the north, other bird circling the area. 

Linda Woods reports:  1:17 Mandy has returned to the east side ledge of Mount Sinai. 3rd ledge from the north. I just caught Windwhistler reappearing on the ledge. He had stepped into the back area of the ledge again. That's twice today I have seen him there. He then flies off, circles back and to the area Mandy is sitting. Mating seen again. Windwhistler than flies off again and sets down on one of the lower ledges beneath the area Mandy is sitting.  1:40 - 2:28 Mandy on the 3rd ledge and Windwhistler is on the 1st ledge from the north.  

3:45 Both are seen on the east side ledges of MSH.  4:00 Still raining. Windwhistler on the east ledge MSH. Mandy on the north-east lower corner of 505 University Ave.  4:15 Windwhistler off the east ledge of MSH and over to the north-east corner of National Life. I think he is finishing the prey that was left there earlier. It's still raining and Mandy continues to sit on the corner of 505 University.  4:33 Still in the same  spots and still raining.  4:38 Mandy still sitting in the rain on 505 University Ave., Windwhistler has moved back to the east ledges of Mount Sinai.  4:40 Windwhistler is off and to the north. Didn't see how far north he went.  Mandy still in her spot and it's still raining.  4:46 Windwhistler has returned and is now on the south-east corner of Mount Sinai. Mandy still on 505 University and guess what...it's still raining.  5:15 Still there, still raining.  5:35  Mandy off 505 University and I missed her departure and don't see her in the direct area. Windwhistler remains on the south-east corner of MSH.  5:50 Haven't seen Mandy. Windwhistler is still on the south-east corner of Mount Sinai Hospital and it's still raining.

Wednesday February 20, 2002
Linda Woods reports:  One adult was seen briefly on the north-east corner of National Life building at 8:50 am. It's been raining here all day and now the fog has rolled in, so I doubt I will see any more activity in this area today.

Brian Tjernstrom reports:  Both birds were on the east-most north balcony of the Four Seasons between 12:40 pm and 12:56 pm.

Tuesday February 19, 2002
Linda Woods reports:  07:21 Adult on the south-east corner Mount Sinai Hospital.  07:51 Adult leaves the south-east corner of the hospital and over to the north side logo of National Life building. At the same time I see a bird on the north side of 505 University Ave (not sure it's a peregrine, may be a look-a-like pigeon).

08:39 Mandy on north-west roof top of 505 University Ave.  08:55 Mandy remains on 505 University Ave. Windwhistler is seen at the same time on the south-east corner of Mount Sinai Hospital.  09:01 Windwhistler has moved from the south-east corner to the east side ledges of the hospital, 1st ledge from the north.

Linda Woods reports:  12:50 Walking north on University Ave. Mandy is seen on the north-west corner roof-top of 505 University Ave. She remained there until approx. 1:02p.m. Windwhistler is not seen at this time.  

Brian Tjernstrom reports:  A female peregrine was on a north balcony of the Four Seasons hotel at 1:34 pm.  After taking a short flight to the north, she disappeared around the east side of the building heading south at 1:37 pm.  At 1:42 pm I found her preparing a meal on the "R" of the TD Waterhouse sign on the west side of 77 Bloor West.

Linda Woods reports:  1:40 Adults were not seen until now. One adult has returned to the north-west corner of 505 University Ave.  1:58 Adult peregrine still on the corner of 505 University. 2:10p.m.  Viewing from street level at University and Elm. Adult gone from 505 University. One adult is now seen on the south-west corner roof-top of Mount Sinai Hospital.  3:04 Can't see if the adult is still on the south-east MSH at the viewing point. One adult is seen on the east ledges of Mt. Sinai.  

4:55 First sighting since 3:04p.m.,one is on the east ledges of Mount Sinai Hospital. It was there only briefly and took off towards the north-east along University Ave. I would say it was heading in the direction of Bay and Bloor. I wonder if they are heading back to the Four Seasons Hotel.

Monday February 18, 2002
Linda Woods reports:  Between 7:00 and 8:34 I didn't see either adult in the usual places. They might have been on the south ledge to do the cold, but that area I can only see from street level.

8:34 Crows, crows and more crows, a whole convention of them. I could see them chasing each other, playing tag and so on. They seem to like the Zurich building. It wasn't until they stayed in the area and set down on the roof of 505 University that the peregrines made an appearance. One adult peregrine appeared on the north-east corner roof-top of National Life.  08:36 I think it's Windwhistler, he has now moved to the south-east corner roof-top of Mount Sinai. Mandy is seen at the same time on east side of the Mount Sinai.  08:51 Mandy and Windwhistler remain in the same spots.

09:08 Mandy gone from the east ledges, while Windwhistler remains on the south-east corner of MSH.  09:23 Both adults are not in view. 09:26 Adult is seen coming from the southeast.  It crosses University Ave and is last seen in the Elm and McCaul St. area. A few seconds later two peregrines are seen approaching 505 University Ave from the east. Mandy sets down on the north-east corner of 505 University. Windwhistler joins her briefly and takes off again towards the east side Mount Sinai, 3rd ledge from the north.

09:31 Windwhistler not in view, I think he may have stepped back into the ledge area.  10:04 Mandy remains on 505 University Ave. This time she has moved to the south-east corner roof-top.  10:14 Mandy is off 505 and is seen circling the office tower on the corner of Dundas and Chestnut St. She then headed west and back again. This time two peregrines are now seen south of Dundas St.  They both headed west past University Ave. and I loose track of them amongst the buildings.
10:21 Adult has returned to the east side Mount Sinai Hospital briefly and off again to the upper south-east corner of 505 University Ave.  10:22 Adult gone from 505 University Ave. I do a scan of the roof-tops and discovered both adults on the office Tower at Dundas and Chestnut St. One adult is on the north-east corner and the other adult on the north-west corner.
10:26 Adult gone from the north-west corner of Dundas and Chestnut office tower and is next seen on the north-east corner of 505 University.

10:34 I do another scan of the roof-tops. Both peregrines I tracked earlier remain in the same spots. But I do see a 3rd bird sitting on the south-east corner roof-top of the Zurich Building on University Ave. I can't be sure, but it is certainly sitting like a peregrine.  10:42 -11:20 Both peregrines I tracked earlier remain on the same spots.  11:22 Both adults leave those spots and I lose track of them behind the buildings.

3:03p.m. Both adults are on the east side of Mount Sinai. Mandy on the first ledge and Windwhistler on the 3rd ledge from the north.  3:29 Mandy steps back and into the ledge area. I can see her poking around back there (head and tail bopping).  At the same time Windwhistler disappears, while I'm watching Mandy (I hope I'm not confusing the two) I check for Windwhistler after Mandy pops back onto the ledge and Windwhistler is seen popping back onto the ledge. They were both in the back area of the ledges.  3:45 Both adults not in view at this time.

5:23 Not sure but I think there might be a peregrine on the north-east corner roof-top of the Sheraton Hotel. (Kingsley or Victoria?)  5:40 One adult is now seen on the south-east corner roof-top of Mt. Sinai Hospital. I went back to my south viewing area and the bird is gone from the Sheraton Hotel. I didn't see it take off.

6:24 Adult remained on the south-east corner MSH until now. It appeared to leave the corner and hop down onto the roof-top of the hospital. A few moments later a peregrine is seen coming from the direction of the hospital towards the south-east. (Heading towards downtown??) very strange.

Sunday February 17, 2002
Linda Woods reports:  07:04 One adult seen for a brief period on the 2nd ledge from the north, east side Mount Sinai Hospital.  07:42 Both adults are now seen on the east side Mount Sinai, far north ledge.  09:00 Viewing from Elm and University Ave., both adults are seen on the top south ledge of Mount Sinai Hospital sitting in the sun.

12:00 I was walking north along University Ave as I approached Dundas St. I could see both adults are again on the south side ledges of Mount Sinai.  2:08 Both adults have returned to the east side of the hospital and are on the far north ledge. I think they may have lunch with them. A light coloured object with can be seen on the ledge with them. Mandy takes her share and Windwhistler finishes up the remains. They must have been on the ledge for a while. A minute later I recheck the ledge and both adults are now gone and so is their meal.

2:42 Windwhistler is seen heading towards MSH from the north with Mandy following him. He appears to have more prey with him or perhaps it's what they were caught earlier. Both adults set down on a centre ledge, east side Mount Sinai Hospital.  2:48 One adult can be seen on the south-roof top of MSH. The other adult is no longer on the east side ledge and I it is not in my view.   3:20 Adult that was on the south roof-top has moved to the south-east corner roof of MSH.

Harry Crawford reports:  A peregrine was seen feeding on the north east corner of the Renaissance Plaza between 8:02 and 8:12am -- it may have been there before I spotted it.  A check of the Yorkville area around 10:30am found no peregrine activity.

Linda Woods reports:  08:33 Not seen.  08:55 Viewing from street level, Windwhistler is on the south-east corner of MSH. Mandy is seen on the north-east corner of National Life.  09:10 Windwhistler is off the south east corner and flies low, north bound along the east side of Mt. Sinai Hospital. He's doing a sweep and scooting up all the pigeons that are sitting the shallow ledges. He's flying just above the blue "research" banners that are on the front of the hospital. Pigeons are high tailing it out of there and Windwhistler is seen doing a lot of dives swoops and sharp turns. It's unsuccessful hunt this time, but Windwhistler is all fired up as he heads south to join Mandy on the northeast corner of National Life. Mating is seen and Windwhistler is off again. This time he sets down on the north-west corner of National Life.

09:20 Windwhistler off that corner and heads north along University Ave. and turns west at the Hydro Building and disappears from my view.  09:25 Windwhistler returns to the east side of Mt. Sinai, second ledge from the north. Vocalizing can be heard from Windwhistler. Little chirpy noises. I don't recall hearing that vocalization. Mandy remains on National Life.  09:40 Windwhistler returns to north-east side of National Life. He is sitting on a rail adjacent to the north facing logo. Mandy remains on the corner above him.  09:55 - 10:15 Both adults remain on the same areas.

10:23 Mandy is gone and Windwhistler remains.  11:00 Mandy has returned to the north-east corner of National Life.  11:40 Mandy remains on the north-east corner. Windwhistler is gone.

5:00p.m. Adult on east side Mount Sinai Hospital, 3rd ledge from the north.  5:08p.m. Both adults are on the east side of 505 University Ave. on the ledge under the overhang. They don't appear  comfortable sitting out in the wet snow, rain and gusty winds. Windwhistler changes position and moves to the upper north-west corner of the same building. Mandy can be seen walking along the ledge. She wasn't directly on the corner at first but now she is.  5:14 Both adults have flown off. Mandy sets down the south-east roof-top of Mt. Sinai. Windwhistler returns to his favorite ledge on the east side.  5:21 Windwhistler is gone again. Mandy remains on the corner.  5:30 Mandy has moved back to 505 University Ave. This time she is seen on the south-east corner. Windwhistler has not been seen.

Friday February 15, 2002
Linda Woods reports:  07:03 Both adults on east side ledges of Mount Sinai Hospital.  07:31 Mandy is on the far north east side ledge. Windwhistler is on a ledge under the second bank of windows under the louvered areas. He appears to feeding on fresh prey, although this is the same spot that a previous meal was had, so I can't tell if it's left-overs or fresh take-out.  08:25 Mandy has remained on the same ledge. Windwhistler is not seen at this time. 08:35 I've just caught Windwhistler heading towards Mt. Sinai. from the north.  08:45 Both adults are gone from MSH. Windwhistler is now seen on the north side of 505 University Ave. Mandy is on the north-east corner of National Life.

10:07 Mandy feeding on  prey on the lower ledges of MSH. Windwhistler is on the louvered ledges above her.  11:06 Windwhistler is now finishing the meal Mandy was eating. Mandy is on the 3rd ledge from the north, east side Mt. Sinai Hospital.  12:50 - 1:15p.m. One adult peregrine, east side Mt. Sinai second ledge from the north.

Alan Kirschbaum reports:  It didn't look like any one was home when I arrived at the Mount Sinai Hospital.  However, one of the peregrines soon appeared on the third slot from the north end of the hospital.  Some kids were passing by and they said they have been seeing the birds on the hospital on a regular basis.  The peregrine then took off to the north, low and very fast.  I thought that was it, but then I saw the other peregrine sitting on the second ledge.  Its head was just visible.  It stayed well back from the edge while I was there.

Harry Crawford reports:  At 2:40pm what looked like a male peregrine, passed quickly from Bay to Yonge over Bloor.  It happened quickly so it may have been a kestrel, however it was large.  A peregrine was seen feeding on the north east corner of the Renaissance Plaza between 4:48 and 5:09pm.  It may have been there for a while before I spotted it.  This is Mandy's traditional feeding spot.

Linda Woods reports:  4:51 Birds not visible.  4:58 Both adults are seen flying high speed heading towards Mt. Sinai Hospital from the north. Windwhistler falls back and sets down on the east side ledges of MSH, while Mandy continued south. She appeared to bank west around 505 University and set down on the south side of same building.  5:15 Windwhistler on east ledges. Mandy not in view.  5:17-5:45 Mandy reappears on the north-east corner roof-top of National Life. Windwhister remains on the east side of Mt. Sinai Hospital.  5:49 Windwhistler is gone from the hospital ledges. Mandy remained on the National Life building until almost dark. At approximately 6:10 I just caught a glimpse of Mandy leaving National Life. She dove low along University Ave in a southern direction. Tried to spot if she doubled back to the hospital or the south side of 505, but could not see with the lack of daylight.

Marcel Gahbauer comments:  Just as we thought we had figured out these birds, the above two reports come in, putting Mandy in two places at once!  Given a more than 10-minute overlap, it seems that there must in fact be three birds involved.  The question is, who is the interloper - and does she have any interactions with the other two peregrines?

Thursday February 14, 2002
Linda Woods reports:  06:56 One adult visible east side Mount Sinai Hospital (MSH).  07:03 Both adults are not visible on the east ledges of MSH.  07:17 - 07:28 Windwhistler is finishing the left-overs from Mandy's dinner selection of last evening. He's doing a fine job and when finished, one can hardly detect any evidence that there had even been a picnic.  07:29 Windwhistler flies off the lower east ledge and returns to the east side louvered ledges of MSH.  07:47 Both adults have been seen flying around Mt. Sinai Hospital. Mandy was last seen coming off the east ledges flying low.

08:37 Both adults on east ledges Mt. Sinai.  10:45 One adult is seen on east MSH.  12:06 Mandy is on a ledge under the louvered areas, three ledges from the north. Beside her on the ledge are the remains of a recent kill. Windwhistler is sitting on the ledge above her.  12:20 - 1:15 Both adults remain on the same ledges.

3:35p.m. Windwhistler on the east ledges. Mandy has returned to feed on her earlier catch, on the ledge beneath Windwhistler.  4:42 Mandy is on  the east side of 505 University Ave. Windwhistler is on the north-east corner National Life.  4:48 Windwhistler returns to the east side ledges of Mt. Sinai Hospital.  5:02 Both adults remain on the same spots.

5:18 Mandy off 505 University and back over to the east side MSH.  5:22 Observing Windwhistler, he jumps back from the edge and disappears. I was waiting to see if he pokes his head up from a different ledge (like Kingsley does) but he doesn't. Windwhistler reappears and hops back up on the ledge. He did this a second time. I wonder what he is doing back there? He is then off the ledge and heads north. Mandy follows after him.  5:32 Mandy has returned to the same ledge where Windwhistler was sitting (second ledge from the north) east side MSH. She then flies off to sit on the south-east corner roof-top Mt. Sinai Hospital.

5:39 Windwhistler has returned as well and sets down on the far north-eastern ledge of the hospital.
5:41 Windwhistler off and over to the south-east corner to be with Mandy. Mating is seen. Windwhistler is off again and sets down on the north-east corner roof-top of National Life building.
5:49 Both adults are now out of my view. Windwhistler was last seen flying in the area north of National Life (University and Elm).

Marcel Gahbauer comments:  Windwhistler's behaviour at 5:22 this afternoon may be a prelude to nesting activity.  It sounds like he was possibly preparing a nest scrape and trying to attract Mandy to this potential nest site.

Wednesday February 13, 2002
Linda Woods reports:  06:56 One adult is seen on the east ledges of Mount Sinai Hospital (MSH) and then flew off to the north.  08:18 Adults not seen at this time, they may be on the south ledge (or sitting by a fire somewhere trying to get out of the -12C weather!)

09:35 - 10:10 Both adults are on the south ledges of MSH.  2:45 - 3:44 Windwhistler on the south ledge and Mandy on the east side ledges of MSH. 

4:20 Mandy is now on the ledges above the nesting box on the east side of Princess Margaret Hospital (PMH)  4:28 Mandy is gone from PMH and is now seen dining  on the ledges under the louvered areas. She has selected a light coloured pigeon for this evening's entree. Windwhistler must have caught an earlier seating, because he is showing no interest in her meal and remains on the louvered ledge.  4:46 Mandy finishes her meal and is off to sit on a ledge closer to Windwhistler, where she is seen flossing her beak.  5:02 - 5:30 Both adults have remained in the same spots.
5:32 Windwhistler is now on the south-east corner Mt. Sinai. Mandy has not moved.  5:40 Windwhistler is gone from the south-east corner and Mandy is still there. I've looked at all the possible roof-tops and can't find him sitting in my view.  5:50 Mandy is now off and heading south. I lose track of her with glare off the buildings.

Tuesday February 12, 2002
Linda Woods reports:  07:12 - 07:51 One adult on the east ledges of Mount Sinai Hospital.  09:49 Both Windwhistler and Mandy are on the east ledges of Mount Sinai Hospital.  11:04 Only one adult can be seen at this time.

12:02 Both adults have returned to the east ledges of Mount Sinai Hospital. Workers can be seen on the roof of the hospital. Windwhistler appears to be looking around at this time.  12:13 Windwhistler is gone and Mandy remains on the ledge. Workers are continuing with their work. I don't see Windwhistler in the area.  12:28 Mandy remains on the east ledges.

12:50 I thought I would make my way to street level and check out the south side of the hospital for Windwhistler. As I approached Elizabeth St. I could see both adults swooping and diving above the west side of Mt. Sinai Hospital and then they went out of my view. I returned to my viewing point and discovered Mandy had set down on the ledges above the nest box on the east side of Princess Margaret Hospital. Windwhistler had returned to east side ledges of Mt. Sinai.

Alan Kirschbaum reports:  I was on Queen's Park Circle when at around 1:00 pm when I saw one of the peregrines fly quickly by heading towards Yorkville.  I was with some friends and we were still talking about the peregrine when both Spike and Mandy flew by going towards Mount Sinai.

Linda Woods reports:  1:20 Both adults are on the east side of Mount Sinai Hospital.  2:33 One adult, Mandy I think, is on the east side ledge of MSH.  3:15 Both peregrines are not in view at this time.  4:07 Both adults are seen approaching the Gerrard and University Ave. area from the north. Mandy sets down on the east side ledges of MSH. Windwhistler continues south... chasing a pigeon! The pigeon takes a sharp right and heads east. Windwhistler drops back turns west across University and turns north towards the hospitals and sets down on a ledge next to Mandy.

4:11 Windwhistler off the east ledge and to the south-east corner roof-top of Mt. Sinai Hospital.  4:16 The wind has picked up a bit and it's starting to snow. Windwhistler returns to the east side ledges.  4:31 Both Mandy and Windwhistler-Spike are on the east ledges of Mt. Sinai Hospital.  4:48 Mandy and Windwhistler are gone from the east ledges.  5:24 Windwhistler has returned to the eastside ledges of Mt. Sinai Hospital. The second time today I have seen Mandy on the ledges above the nest box on the east side of Princess Margaret Hospital.

Marcel Gahbauer reports:  It appears that the peregrines are beginning to show a bit of interest in Princess Margaret Hospital as well, and it may be that the nest box installed on an east-facing ledge of the building is attractive to them.  The box was installed around 1997 by Ontario Hydro (now Ontario Power Generation) with Pete Ewins and the staff of the hospital.  Today Gerry McKenna of Ontario Power Generation reported seeing one of the peregrines perched a few ledges above the nest box.  It will be interesting to see whether they focus more attention on the box as the nesting season approaches.

Monday February 11, 2002
Linda Woods reports:  06:55 One adult is seen on the east ledges of Mount Sinai Hospital.  08:31 Birds are not in view. Man on east service area of Princess Margaret Hospital.  

Harry Crawford reports:  At 8:45am both peregrines were on the south side of Mt. Sinai Hospital:  one was in the east and the other in the west utility balcony.  They were both huddled up against their respective west walls, avoiding the strong cold winds.  Later, at 9:55am, they were still there, but away from the walls by about a foot. 

Linda Woods reports:  11:25 One adult on east ledge of M.S.H.  1:48 One adult on east side ledges of Mt. Sinai Hospital.  3:06 One adult on the east side ledges of M.S.H.

4:59 Mandy and Windwhistler- Spike are sitting on different ledges of Mount Sinai Hospital.  Trying to watch and see if this pair heads south at anytime. Given the time of day that they are active frequent timings will be reported.  5:02 Windwhistler-Spike is off his ledge and heads to the lower south-east corner roof-top of Princess Margaret Hospital. Mandy remains on the east ledges.  5:08 Both remain in the same spots.  5:17 Windwhistler is off Princess Margaret Hospital and over to the north-east corner ( under the over- hang) of 505 University Ave. Mandy takes off as well and sets down on the south-east roof-top Mt. Sinai Hospital.  5:27 Both adults remain in same spots.  5:38 Helicopter is landing at Sick Children's Hospital and Windwhistler can be seen looking around, checking out the huge intruder. He is spooked off his perched and heads south to about Edward St. then turns west. I lose track of him in the buildings but he eventually turns up on the east side ledges of M.S. H.  Mandy remains on the south-east corner of Mt. Sinai Hospital.  5:40 Windwhistler is off the east ledges and over to the south-west corner roof-top of Mt. Sinai Hospital. While Mandy remains on the south-east corner.  5:41 Windwhistler is off again and this time he heads back to the east side of M.S.H setting down on the far north ledge. Mandy remains of the south-east corner of the hospital.  5:44 Windwhistler off the ledge circles on the east side of the hospital along University Ave. and back to the east ledges. Mandy is still on her spot. He is either hunting or trying to encourage Mandy off her spot.  5:52 Once again Windwhistler heads south along University Ave. and to the north-west corner roof-top of 505 University. When I check back on Mandy she is gone off the south-east corner of Mt. Sinai Hospital.  6:02 Windwhistler is gone from 505 University Ave. with the fading light I did not see which way he went.

Sunday February 10, 2002
Linda Woods reports: 07:30 One adult seen on the east side ledges of Mount Sinai Hospital, and was gone at 07:42.  08:25 Neither adult has been seen, so I headed out to street level and checked around on the south and west side of the hospitals and did not see them in the area.

1:23p.m. Both adults are on the east side of Mount Sinai Hospital.  1:48 Both adults remain on the east side of MSH.  1:58 Both adults remain on the east side of MSH although Spike has moved to a ledge under the louvered areas.  2:26 Both remain on the east side of Mount Sinai Hospital.  2:45 Mandy is now on the south-east corner roof-top of Mount Sinai Hospital. Spike remains on the same ledge.  3:06 Mandy has gone and Spike has moved to the north ledge of the east side of M.S.H.

3:28 Neither adult is in my view at this time.  3:45 -5:30 Have not seen them during this time period. 5:30 Mandy on the south-east corner of M.S.H. Spike is not seen.  5:31 Mandy off and over to the south-west upper level roof-top of Princess Margaret Hospital. She is off again. Both adults can be seeing flying just west of the Hospitals (McCaul St.) Mandy returns and sets down on the upper east side roof-top of Princess Margaret Hospital, directly above the "box". Spike returns to the south-east corner roof-top of M.S.H.  5:42 Spike remains in the same spot and can be seen preening.  5:45 Mandy off and I missed her departure. Spike remains on the corner.

Saturday February 9, 2002
Linda Woods reports:  08:40 One adult on the south ledges Mount Sinai Hospital.

2:30p.m. Haven't seen either Mandy or Spike.  3:05p.m. Adult (I think Spike) is spotted coming from the north along University Ave. with prey in talons. He takes it to the north-east corner roof-top of 505 University Ave. He flutters a bit and I can see the tail feathers flipping. He jumps down onto the roof-top( I think perhaps the prey was not ready for eating) flutters a bit and then flies off to the north-east towards Mount Sinai, circles and then I loose track of him amongst the buildings.

5:30p.m. Adult seen on the upper south-west corner roof-top of Princess Margaret Hospital. It was there only briefly and then appeared to head south, and once again I lose track of the peregrine.

Friday February 8, 2002
Linda Woods reports:  07:25 Mandy on the south-west corner Princess Margaret Hospital and Spike was seen on the east side ledges of Mount Sinai Hospital.  09:05 Mandy on the north-west corner roof-top of 505 University Ave. and Spike is on the north-east corner of 505 University Ave. 09:13 Spike off the north-east corner and over to south-east corner of MSH. Mandy follows after him and sets down on the roof-top ledge beside him. I can see they are looking at each other with their heads bowed. Spike approaches Mandy and mating is seen. After the reunion Spike flies off the east side ledges and Mandy remained on the south-east corner roof-top of Mount Sinai Hospital.

09:57 Adult on the north side of 505 University Ave and second adult (I think it's Mandy) on the National Life logo, north side, feeding. 

Harry Crawford reports:  I passed Gerrard and University heading south around 10:10am and didn't see any sign of Mandy or Windwhistler-Spike.  However, when I got to Dundas at 10:20am, a peregrine crossed University, westbound, over the American Consulate, chasing three pigeons.  It reappeared a few minutes later and crossed University heading east.  A couple of minutes later, it again crossed University westbound in a low and shallow stoop, disappearing behind the Bell building to the west of the American Consulate.  Almost immediately, it crossed east across University and headed off towards Bay and Queen at a high rate of speed.  I don't know whether it was Victoria of Kingsley but they used to hunt in this exact area when I worked at 400 University about three years ago.

Linda Woods reports:  11:30 Both adults are on the east side ledges of Mount Sinai Hospital.  12:50 Both peregrines are out of my view.  3:10 Still not in view, but I do see three crows on the east side roof-top of 505 University Ave. They appear to have found left-over prey from the peregrines and are feeding on the remains. It also appears that one crow is acting as the "look-out". This crow is standing on the south edge of the roof and is constantly looking around and after it is satisfied their are no intruders, it moves to the northern part of the roof and repeats the same behavior always looking skyward. All the while the other two crows feast.

3:55 Mandy on the north-east corner roof-top of National Life.  4:04 Mandy leaves the corner of National Life and over to the east side ledges of Mt. Sinai Hospital.  5:10 Both adults are now seen on the east side ledges of Mount Sinai Hospital.

Thursday February 7, 2002
Linda Woods reports:  07:45 Both adults on the east side ledges of Mt. Sinai Hospital.  09:30 Windwhistler remains on the east side of the hospital. Mandy has flown off and is not seen at this time.

10:45 Mandy and Windwhistler-Spike are not seen in the area.  11:20 Adult peregrines, remain out of my view.  Two people on the east side service area of Princess Margaret Hospital.  11:26 The two people are still on the service area of Princess Margaret Hospital. Both Mandy and Windwhistler-Spike have returned to the east side ledges of Mt. Sinai Hospital. 

2:45p.m. Both adults are on the east of MSH (Mount Sinai Hospital) third ledge from the north.  3:10 Mandy can now been seen on the south ledge of the hospital, while Windwhistler sits on the south-east corner roof-top.  4:00p.m. Not in view at this time.  5:10 One adult on the north-east corner of National Life building. Can't tell which one it is. It didn't stay very long and it was off to the north.  5:18 Windwhistler on the east side of MSH, Mandy is seen at the same time on the upper south-west corner of Princess Margaret Hospital.

Wednesday February 6, 2002
Linda Woods reports:  07:25 Both adults on the same east ledge of Mt. Sinai Hospital.  08:30 Peregrines remain in the same spot.  09:07 One adult remains on the east side of Mt. Sinai, third ledge from the north.  Second adult thought it was time to chase the crows out of the area. I don't think contact was made with the crows but a good chase none the less. 09:15 Second adult has returned to the east side ledge.

10:12 Adults remain on the east side of the Hospital although they have changed ledges.  11:20 Both adults remain on the east side ledges of Mt. Sinai Hospital.  12:05 Still there.

2:05p.m. Neither adult is seen at this time.  2:36 Both on the east ledges of the hospital.  4:10 One adult on the north-east corner National Life building.  5:06 Both are again seen on the east side ledges of the hospital.  

5:26 Oh! a change of view. Both adults are now on the east side of Princess Margaret Hospital.( the older portion of the building) One is sitting on the upper creme coloured facade and the other is sitting on the first ledge above the main entrance. I think it's Mandy sitting near the top, she takes off and heads directly south. I thought she might be heading to National Life or 505 University, but she kept going south.  5:30 Both adults are no longer visible.

Tuesday February 5, 2002
Linda Woods reports:  07:18 Both adults on the east side ledges of Mt. Sinai Hospital.  08:14 Both remain in the same spots.  08:52 Mandy on the east side of the hospital and Windwhistler-Spike is on the south-east corner of the hospital.  

12:05 Both adults are again on the east side ledges of the hospital.  12:50 Both remain on the same spots.

3:40p.m. I can only see one adult on the east ledges of the hospital. Can't tell which adult it is at this time. 4:30p.m. Windwhistler- Spike is sitting on the south-east corner roof-top of National Life building and Mandy is on the east ledges of the hospital.  4:41p.m. Mandy has flown off the east ledges of the hospital and is now on the north-east roof-top of National Life while Windwhistler-Spike remains on the south-east corner roof-top of the same building.  5:30p.m. Both adults are no longer in view.

Monday February 4, 2002

Margaret Omnet reports:  At 12.25pm I caught sight of an adult peregrine on the roof of the Polo Club condo on Bay St. just south of St. Mary St. It was preening. At about 12.30 it flew down past my window on the 24th floor of St. Mary towards Yonge St, I think it was chasing pigeons and I lost sight of it. 

Saturday February 2, 2002
Linda Woods reports:  07:35 Both adults east side Mt. Sinai Hospital.  08:46 I can see at least one adult on the south side of the Hospital.  09:15- 10:00 Both adults are on the south-side Mt. Sinai Hospital. Marcel and Bruce are with me today this morning trying to get a look at the leg bands. The adults move from one ledge to another on various nearby buildings.  (see additional notes below)

12:30-1:15 Both adults on the north-east ledge of Mt. Sinai Hospital  1:30p.m. Male on the north-east corner of National Life, Female on the National Life logo feeding.  2:38 Both adults remain on the National Life building.  3:30p.m. One adult remains on the National Life building the second adult has moved.  4:15 Adults not seen.  

4:41 Both adults are back to the north-east corner National Life building.  5:10 Male remains on National Life and the female is now seen on the north-east corner of the former "Shell" building ( tallest building on the south-east area of Elm and University) The building is not named, but I believe it is 550 University Ave.  They remain on those spots even through the arrival and departure of the Helicopter at Sick Kids Hospital.  5:20 Adults are no longer in view.

Marcel Gahbauer reports:  As Linda mentioned, Bruce Massey and I spent a couple of hours this morning trying to make progress on identifying the Mt. Sinai peregrines.  Though we didn't get quite as far as we hoped, we certainly made some progress and the peregrines both put on a great show for us.

My observations began around 9:45 am.  Walking north along University Avenue, I spotted a male peregrine in the easternmost slot of the Mt. Sinai Hospital's south side.  Looking more closely, I then noticed the female was in the centre slot, tucked up against the dividing wall.  Bruce Massey then arrived, and we made our first of many attempts to get the birds in his scope.

Before long, both peregrines had taken flight.  Over the next two hours, they rarely perched in the same spot for more than 10-15 minutes at a time, using several different buildings along both sides of University Avenue as perches.  At one point the female went in pursuit of a pigeon close to University and Dundas, while the male dropped straight down from the roof of the National Life building (at University & Elm) aiming for sparrows flying below; he missed and pulled up around the level of the flagpoles at the base of the building.

For the most part, the two peregrines went about their business separately, though they were rarely far apart.  I believe it was a bit after 11 am when we saw the female land on the southernmost ledge of Mt. Sinai on the east side, and the male flew in seconds later to mate with her.

While there has been some mystery as to which birds these are, it is becoming more and more evident that they are in all likelihood the midtown Toronto birds, as sightings at the two locations are consistently proving to be mutually exclusive.  It is probably safe to assume then that these are the birds we have been calling Windwhistler-Spike and Mandy.

However, to be sure which birds we are dealing with, we will need to read their leg bands.  Looking through Bruce's scope, I was able to see a red leg band on the female's right leg, but she was just slightly too far away to read the characters.  Later, Bruce was able to confirm that the male has a black leg band on the right leg, which would be consistent with Windwhistler-Spike.  With many buildings in this area being only 18-20 stories tall, it should be possible to fully confirm the leg bands with a 60x or stronger scope, given enough patience.  We look forward to that happening some time this spring.

Friday February 1, 2002
Linda Woods reports:  On Thursday I didn't see any activity in this area at all. I did manage to get out and look around during the breaks in the weather, but the peregrines weren't visible.

Today at 11:45 the female was on the east side of Mt. Sinai Hospital. She's sitting on the ledges under the louvered areas.  11:50 Male is now spotted on the east side ledges above the area where the female is sitting.  

3:00p.m. Both adults are on the east side ledges of Mt. Sinai Hospital.  4:18p.m. Both adults feeding on the top ledges, east side of the Hospital. The female has a large pigeon and the male is on the ledge next to her, feeding on something much smaller. Perhaps a portion of hers. The adults remained in the same areas until about 5:25p.m. The female has moved to a lower ledge and from what I could see, it appeared that they were trying to find a comfortable spot out of the wind changing positions frequently.

Wednesday January 30, 2002
Linda Woods reports:  08:08 Female on north-west corner National Life Building  08:50- 09:20 Male is on the south side of Mt. Sinai on the ledge beneath the louvered area. 09:56 Adults not visible.

10:25 The squirrel has returned. This time it is on the roof edge at the south side. Both adults on the ledge beneath the louvered area, south side and don't appear to notice the squirrel approaching. The squirrel is trying to decide which way is best as it moves across the roof ledge. It finally decides to head straight down the south-east corner. As it approaches the area where the birds are sitting, it stops for a brief moment and then continues a short distance and then It just LEAPS! off the side of the hospital and over to the roof top of Toronto Rehab. Hospital next door. An amazing distance and height. I am surprised it may it safely. The peregrines paid not attention to it.

11:00-12:00 Both adults remain on the south side of Mt. Sinai Hospital.  2:56p.m. Male on the east side Mt. Sinai, female remains on the south side ledge.  4:13 Male on the east side ledge Mt. Sinai.
Female not seen at this time.  5:10 Adults not in view.

Margaret Omnet reports:  I saw something today that was quite interesting. At 1pm I went out to check if the peregrines were around and saw one standing on the corner of the roof at the Sick Kids building at University and Gerrard, eating prey, a pigeon I think, I could see a wing jutting out at the side. After about ten minutes, it took off, circled the area twice and landed on the south side of Mt Sinai. The other peregrine was also on the south side of Mt. Sinai at the time, facing into the building.  When we came back to the office the leftovers were quite visible on the Sick Kids roof.

Harry Crawford reports:  I checked out the Yorkville area around 9am and didn't see any sign of the peregrines.  Later, at 12:36pm there may have been one on the south west corner of 38 Avenue Rd, briefly.  I was too far away to confirm.

Tuesday January 29, 2002
Harry Crawford reports:  A kestrel was on the north east corner of the Renaissance Plaza at 8:08am (a spot usually reserved for Mandy).  It moved to the south east corner at 8:18 before disappearing.  Both peregrines were circling, low, over 77 Bloor West at 8:55am -- one had prey in its talons.  They immediately disappeared to the north west.

Linda Woods reports:  07:34 Adult on east ledges Mt. Sinai Hospital.  08:20 Adult male on upper south-west corner Princess Margaret Hospital, adult female on lower south-west corner Princess Margaret Hospital.  08:28 Male off and over to the south-east corner Mt.Sinai.  Female remains in same spot.  08:54 Both adults are gone from previous spots.  (Note: this is consistent with the observation of both peregrines at Bay & Bloor at 8:55)

10:27 Two people on service area roof-top Princess Margaret Hospital. Adult peregrine is on the south-west corner Princess Margaret Hospital.  10:53 Peregrine on south-east corner Mt. Sinai, the second peregrine on south-west corner Princess Margaret Hospital.  11:41 One adult has now moved to south ledges of Mt. Sinai.

2:25 Adult peregrine on the south-east corner Mt. Sinai.  2:55 I arrive home and viewing from my west window and see something strange on the south ledges of Mt. Sinai. It is a black squirrel that has climbed up the side of the building. It appears to be on the top south ledge where the peregrines have been frequenting. Both peregrines have spotted the intruder and are swooping and diving at it. It's amazing that squirrels can hang upside down! The squirrel cannot make a safe run for it, because both adult peregrines are in hot pursuit. I can see the peregrines grabbing at it with their talons. The squirrel eventually makes it to the roof and by the movement of the peregrines I can tell it is being chased across the roof-top. The squirrel must have found a safe place for the time being as both adult peregrines are now on the corners of Princess Margaret Hospital and Mt. Sinai.

3:20 Adult on the east ledges Mt. Sinai.  4:19 Adult off the east ledge circles around and heads for the south roof-top of Mt. Sinai.  4:45 Adult remains on the south roof-top Mt. Sinai Hospital.

Monday January 28, 2002
Linda Woods reports:  07:13 One adult on the south-east corner Mt. Sinai Hospital.  07:34 Peregrine gone from the south-east corner, perhaps it is the same adult that is now on the south-west corner Princess Margaret Hospital.  08:36 Adult on the east ledges Mt. Sinai Hospital, second adult is seen approaching and sets down on the south-east corner Mt. Sinai.

09:38 Male on the  corner Mt. Sinai, female on the S/W corner Princess Margaret Hospital.  09:58
Female remains on Princess Margaret Hospital south-west corner. The male is gone.  10:00 Both adults are no longer in view.  12:44 Peregrines still not in sight.

1:25p.m. Male is on the east side Mt. Sinai Hospital, second ledge from the north. Female not in view.  2:30p.m. Adult on the south-east corner Mt.

Harry Crawford reports:  One adult was circling, low, above 77 Bloor West at 8:01am -- likely Windwhistler-Spike.  He was seen on the south east corner of that location between 8:10 and 8:14am.  At 5:08pm, a falcon profile was seen coming in from the north west, high and at great speed, passing overhead.  Unfortunately I couldn't tell if it was a kestrel or peregrine.

Sunday January 27, 2002
Linda Woods reports:  08:00  One adult seen on the south-east corner roof-top Mt. Sinai. Hospital.  08:22 Adult gone from roof-top and not seen in the area.

08:40 Male has returned to the south-east corner roof-top of Mt. Sinai.  Female is seen flying in the area and eventually lands on the roof-top beside him. Male attempts to mate and then is off, circles the area and sets down on the east side ledges.

09:00 Male remains on the second ledge from the north, female takes off from the roof-top and sets down on the third ledge.  09:05 Both adults off and are heading in a north-east direction (towards Bay Bloor?) I lose track of  them over Mowat Block area. 

3:50p.m. I returned from a day out. I checked the south side Mt. Sinai and the east side and do not see them in the area. 5:05 One adult has returned to the east side Mt. Sinai.  5:15 One adult on east side ledges of Mt. Sinai, second adult on the south-west corner Princess Margaret Hospital.  5:20 The adult on east the ledges has gone, while the adult on Princess Margaret Hospital remains on the south-west corner.  5:36 Both adults are no longer in view.

Harry Crawford reports:  Windwhistler-Spike was on the south east corner of the 55 Bloor Street West balcony between 9:21 and 9:28am.  A female kestrel was on the south east corner of 77 Bloor West between 10:35 and 10:42am, a spot usually reserved for Windwhistler-Spike.  Both peregrines were seen, circling in from the south at 12:22pm, disappearing from view over 77 Bloor West towards the north west.  At 4:02pm, Windwhistler-Spike was on the south east corner of 77 Bloor West, resting on one talon.  He circled the building at 4:39, returning to the same spot.  He headed east low and north of 44 Charles West, circled the CIBC building and disappeared to the north of it at 4:42pm.

Saturday January 26, 2002
Harry Crawford reports:  A bird was on the north east corner of the Renaissance Plaza for a couple of minutes at 11:57am.  This spot is usually reserved for Mandy but I couldn't get a clear look at it.

Linda Woods reports:  07:30 One adult on the first ledge from the north, east side Mt. Sinai. Second adult, third ledge from the north, east side.  08:35 One of the adults has moved to the south east ledge, the other adult remains on the north-east ledge as earlier.  09:20 Female now on the 6th ledge, east side and the male appears to have gone. 

3:00p.m. Both adults are on the east side ledges, Mt. Sinai Hospital. 4:10 Both adults remain on the east ledges.  4:55 One adult has moved to the far south ledge, east side. The other remains on the 7th ledge from the north.  5:00 One adult is gone and I just caught the second adult leave the southeast ledge. It headed south in a stoop and is now seen on the south-east corner roof-top of (Nortel?) building at Elm and University Ave. It wasn't there long and headed back to the south-east corner roof-top of Mt. Sinai. The second adult was seen over the area west of Mt. Sinai. It was flying fast and heading to the south-west. I lost track of it in the direct sunlight.  The adult remained on the roof-top Mt. Sinai until approx. 5:33 it was heading south but I lost track of it with the dark buildings in the background.  I haven't seen the two adults together since approx. 5p.m.

Friday January 25, 2002
Linda Woods reports:  08:00 One adult east side Mt. Sinai, 6th ledge from the north. I walked westward long Elm St. towards University to check the south side of the building. I could hear vocalizing and looked up to see one adult hunting in the area. It was circling the area and eventually went back to the east side of Mt. Sinai.  08:55 Both adults sitting on the 6th ledge. Female off and over to the north-east roof-top, while the male remains.  

09:10 Both adults off and headed east, circled back. Female set down on the south-west corner of Princess Margaret Hospital. Male returns to a ledge on the east side of Mt Sinai.  09:58 Both adults off again, one is seen circling the Ontario Hydro Building. Perhaps the human on the roof-top east side service area of Princess Margaret Hospital might have spooked them.

10:05 Person gone from roof-top service area and both adults have returned to the east side Mt. Sinai, 3rd ledge from the north.  12:00 Both adults are seen on the east side ledges of Mt. Sinai.  12:45 Adults still in same positions.  1:00p.m. Adults remain on the same ledges as before have not moved.  1:45 Female on the 7th ledge ( the ledge with the two dark splotches) and the male is on the 5th ledge from the north.  2:15 to 3:45 Adults remain on the same ledges.

3:50 Female off and to the south-east corner roof-top briefly and then off to the west.  4:00 Both adults are off and can be seen hunting the area of Princess Margaret and the Hydro Building. Wonderful dives, swoops and turns. Incredible to be able to see this activity. One adult returns to Mt. Sinai east side ledges (female).  Male returns to the south-east roof-top with prey in his talons. He can be seen cleaning and the feeding on his catch.

4:25 After finishing his meal the male returns to the east side ledges, 3rd ledge from the north. He then cleans his beak and  walks north along the ledge and settles in beside the pillar facing inwards. 4:50 Both adults remain on the east side of the Hospital, female on the 6th ledge and male on the 3rd ledge.  5:05 Female off , did not see in which direction. Male has now moved to the south-east corner roof-top. 5:13 Adult on the north-east corner roof-top. The changing light makes it difficult to identify, but it was still there at 5:30.

Thursday January 24, 2002
Linda Woods reports:  08:50 Mandy on the south-east corner Mt. Sinai. Have not spotted Spike.  09:45 Mandy over to the south-west corner Princess Margaret Hospital.  10:10 Caught a glimpse of one of the adults going to the south side of Mt. Sinai. Took a walk and to Elm and University. You can clearly see both of them sitting on the ledge. The south side of the Hospital has only three louvered ledges exactly like the east side. Both adults were on the south-east ledge.

12:30 Both remain on the same ledge. Throughout the day one adult leaves it's perch only to return shortly thereafter.  3:15 One adult can clearly be seen sitting either on the south-east corner roof-top or on the south-ledge east side. The other adult can be seen viewing from University and Edward Sts

Harry Crawford reports:  Windwhistler-Spike was seen feeding on the south east corner of 77 Bloor West at 4:42pm.  He moved over to the south east corner of the 55 Bloor West balcony with the prey at 4:55 and continued to feed and then headed west at 5:12pm.

Linda Woods reports:  4:00p.m. Both adults on the S/E corner roof-top Mt. Sinai Hospital. One adult flew off and headed west, and then turned north. Second adult off roof-top and headed north along University Ave. circled back to the south-east corner of Mt Sinai Hospital for a quick touch and go and then off again this time circling and to the south-west corner of Princess Margaret Hospital.  At approximately 5:10p.m. both adults were back on the south-east corner of Mt. Sinai Hospital.

Marcel Gahbauer comments:  We appear to have a mystery developing.  While it seems logical to assume that the birds frequenting Mt. Sinai are Windwhistler-Spike and Mandy, the observations late this afternoon suggest that perhaps a third bird (or possibly a second pair) is involved.  No doubt observations in the coming days will help us determine which birds really are where.

Wednesday January 23, 2002
Linda Woods reports:  7:00a.m.  One adult east Mt. Sinai Hospital, third ledge from the North.  7:25a.m. Adult off ledge and up to the south-east corner roof-top of hospital.  7:50 Adult peregrine remains on the 5th ledge from the north. Same spot where I last saw it yesterday evening at 5:30p.m.  8:10 Adult gone from roof-top and over to the third ledge from the south.  8:55 Both adults have gone from the building.

Harry Crawford reports:  At 7:58am, Mandy was heading north of the Marriott with a pigeon in her talons.  A few minutes later, she passed above Bay and Bloor, heading west, with the pigeon.  She was likely heading to Yorkville for her breakfast.

Linda Woods reports: 10:50a.m. Both adults have returned to the east side of Mt. Sinai Hospital. Second ledge from the north.  11:00 Both adults have now moved to the roof-top, male on the north-east corner and the female on south-east corner.  11:15 Male remains on the north-east corner while the female has moved to the ledges below and is sitting on the 6th ledge from the north. The male then moves to the 4th ledge.  11:40 The helicopter landing at the Hospital for Sick Children doesn't seem to bother the birds. I can't see any reaction from them with the loud noise.

1:05 The adults remain in the same spots as previous and the helicopter departing the hospital doesn't seem to bother them.  2:50 Female is now on the south east corner of Mt. Sinai Hospital. She is regularly leaving the roof-top circling and returning to the same spot. 3:20 Female remains on the south-east corner roof-top and male can be seen on the 5th ledge.  4:00 Female remains on the S/E corner. I have not seen the male.  A short flight off the roof-top and a touch and go on the second ledge and then back up to the roof-top. This time setting down midway point along the east side.

4:15  Off and headed north along University, turned west on the north side of the Hydro building and flew in behind Princess Margaret Hospital and set down on the south-west corner of PMH. Second adult can be seen flying in the area above it. Female then flies off and sets down east side Princess Margaret Hospital roof-top directly above the old nesting box area (the never used nesting box, that was placed there by the MNR years ago).  4:30 Female off again and over to the south-east corner of Mt Sinai Hospital.  Male not seen for a while now.  5:15 Female off and headed north.

Tuesday January 22, 2002
Linda Woods reports:  Two adult peregrines can be seen sitting on the south-east ledges of Mt. Sinai Hospital. Harry confirmed that the midtown birds were not in his view. Harry and I met up at College and University and headed for the corner of Gerrard and University and both peregrines are in clear view from street level. Both adults peregrines had now changed positions to the roof-top, south east corner of Mt. Sinai Hospital. Adult female remained on the roof-top the male headed north to sit on the north -east corner of Ontario Hydro building at College and University. He returned to the building where the female was sitting. Eventually both flew off and returned to a lower ledge on the north -east corner of Mt. Sinai Hospital. Harry and I walked up to Yorkville to find Spike and Mandy and did not see them in that area. When I returned home at 11:45, both adult peregrines remain on the north east ledge of Mt. Sinai Hospital. Harry speculates that with all the construction in the midtown area, that Mandy and Spike have moved further south.

It's now 12:50p.m. and one adult remains on the grated ledge (like #18 King St.) on the east side of Mt. Sinai Hospital. The second adult can be seen periodically in various locations nearby.

3:00 p.m.   One adult has moved to a ledge south of previous ledge.   4:55p.m.  Both peregrines can be seen on the east side Mt. Sinai Hospital, 4th and 5th ledges from the north. The one has been there all day since first spotting them early this a.m. Bruce dropped by to take a look and at that time only one was visible. I will look for them in the a.m. perhaps this might be a potential nesting spot?

Harry Crawford reports:  Windwhistler-Spike was circling above Bay and Bloor with prey in his talons at 12:24pm.  It looked like he was looking for a safe place to land and eat.  He was circling high, just south of the CIBC building at 3:20pm.  At one point he was chased by a male kestrel.

Monday January 21, 2002
Harry Crawford reports:  Windwhistler-Spike was on the east side of 100 Bloor West at 1:28pm, avoiding the usual north east corner because of the construction activity across the street.

Sunday January 20, 2002
Harry Crawford reports:  Windwhistler-Spike was seen feeding on the north east corner of 100 Bloor West at 9:55am.

Saturday January 19, 2002
Harry Crawford reports:  Both peregrines were on the two north east corners of the Renaissance Plaza at 1:18pm.  Mandy hung around until 1:45, while Windwhistler-Spike alternated between the north east roof corner and penthouse corner, finally leaving by 3:00pm.

Friday January 18, 2002
Harry Crawford reports:  At 7:50am, Windwhistler-Spike was on the north east corner of the Renaissance Plaza.  Mandy was on the Four Seasons Hotel, east side, north balcony, on the surface at 10:20am.  She was sheltered from a strong north wind.

Thursday January 17, 2002
Linda Woods reports:  10:50 am.  Two peregrines seen flying around the area south west of College and University Ave, in the vicinity of Princess Margaret Hospital. They eventually headed north east towards Bloor.

Harry Crawford reports:  Mandy was seen feeding on the north east corner of the Renaissance Plaza at 8:13am.  Windwhistler-Spike arrived on the same corner, next to Mandy at 8:43 likely expecting a free meal.  Suddenly Mandy grabbed the prey in her talons and took off to the west with it. Windwhistler-Spike hung around there until 8:50am.  It appears that the false courtship period is indeed over!  Yesterday, a male kestrel was finishing off scraps left by the peregrines on the south side of the CIBC building at 9:30am.

Tuesday January 15, 2002
Harry Crawford reports:  At 1:10pm both peregrines occupied the two north east corners of the Renaissance Plaza.  Windwhistler-Spike immediately jumped onto the roof surface and then took off to the west.

Monday January 14, 2002
Harry Crawford reports:  Mandy was on the top of the west CIBC logo between 7:35 and 8:05am when she moved over to the south west corner of 77 Bloor West.  She may have spent the night on the south side of the CIBC building as I could see a reflection there around 6:00am.  She was back in the same location between 9:28 and approximately 9:45am.  At 8:13am Windwhistler-Spike was hunting, coming in from the west and then circling the CIBC building.  He landed on the south west corner of that building for about 6 minutes at 8:30am.  At 2:48pm, Mandy was slowly circling above Bay and Bloor, moving east.  She made a low and shallow stoop north of the CIBC building and then appeared on the west side of the building without prey.  Windwhistler-Spike was in the same area of the building, occupying several locations, at 3:00pm.  Both peregrines were gone by 4:03pm.

Linda Woods reports:  The last 1/2 hour (since 5:00 pm) I've been watching an adult female peregrine circling my apartment building. I was looking west when the adult came into view.  (Bay and Gerrard) It headed west and came to rest on the north-west corner roof-top of Elm and University. It remained there for about 10 minutes circled that building and then headed in my direction in a stoop and flew over the "Residence" at Elizabeth and Gerrard Sts. What an opportunity to see the underside of this bird while flying that fast just overhead. It then went out of my view. I changed my position and looked out my south windows. It was still circling my building. Back to the west window and once again it came into view. I'm surprised to see it still in the area after the light was becoming dim and it had been snowing for about 20 minutes. The last I saw of this adult female it was headed north. Could be one of the midtown birds?

Marcel Gahbauer comments:  The midtown peregrines occasionally drift to the south, at least as far as the Queen's Park area.  To my recollection, the downtown pair have never been seen north of Dundas, and rarely even venture much north of Queen.  Traditionally the Dundas to College area has been essentially a neutral zone between the two territories.  Since Gerrard is much closer to the midtown pair's normal range, chances are good that it was Mandy, but it's one of those situations where it's impossible to be certain.

Sunday January 13, 2002
Harry Crawford reports:  Windwhistler-Spike was feeding on the south east corner of the 55 Bloor West balcony at 2:30pm.  He moved over to the bottom of the south facing CIBC logo at 2:52pm, into a south facing slot at 3:30pm and finally disappeared from view at 3:50pm.  Mandy was on the south side of the CIBC building from 2:52 to 3:15pm.

Friday January 11, 2002
Harry Crawford reports:  Windwhistler-Spike took up the south east corner of 77 Bloor West between 8:17 and 9:05am and was replaced by Mandy at the same location between 9:40 and 9:52am.  She was seen on the north east corner of the Renaissance Plaza between 10:14 and 10:30am and the south side of the CIBC building between 12:35 and 1:20pm. Windwhistler-Spike was also on the south side of the CIBC building at 12:35pm and took off to the west at 2:30pm.  Mandy returned to the same spot at 3:10, leaving at 4:02pm.  Windwhistler-Spike returned to the same area, much nearer to Mandy this time, at 3:30pm.  He left the area at 3:58pm after circling above the CIBC building a few times.  Mandy was seen briefly on the bottom of the south facing 'y' of the Bay logo at 4:13pm.

Thursday January 10, 2002
Harry Crawford reports:  Mandy was on the east side of the Four Seasons Hotel at 10:08am. She was in the north corner of the north false balcony, close to the window, staring at her reflection.  She was on the south east corner of 77 Bloor West between 4:10 and 4:23pm when she took off slowly to the east towards Yonge Street.

Wednesday January 9, 2002
Harry Crawford reports:  At 8:05am, Mandy was on the foot of the west CIBC logo, feeding. Windwhistler-Spike was circling to the south of there at the same time.  One of the peregrines flew in from the south to land somewhere on the roof of 55 Bloor West.  It was likely Mandy, determined to splash around in a roof top puddle.  At 2:04pm, Mandy was circling, quite low, just west of Bay and Bloor.  Yesterday, one of the peregrines was on the north east corner of the Renaissance Plaza at 2:20pm.

Monday January 7, 2002
Harry Crawford reports:  Mandy was on the south side of the CIBC building at 7:20am.  At 7:43, Windwhistler-Spike was on the 'y' of the south Bay logo.  Both peregrines were gone by 7:50am.

Sunday January 6, 2002
Harry Crawford reports:  Mandy was in a mid level, south slot of the CIBC building at 1:25pm. She may have been taking refuge from the falling snow.

Saturday January 5, 2002
Harry Crawford reports:  Between 9:04 and 9:13am, Windwhistler-Spike occupied the south east corner of 77 Bloor West.  Mandy was seen feeding on the north east corner of the Renaissance Plaza at 9:30.  She was gone at 10:35am. Windwhistler-Spike was nearby on the other north east corner at 10:05 -- he was also gone at 10:30am.  Mandy returned to the same spot briefly at 10:45am.  One of the adults was seen circling high above Bloor between Bay and Yonge at 3:22pm.

Friday January 4, 2002
Harry Crawford reports:  Windwhistler-Spike was on the south east corner of 77 Bloor West at 8:20am.  He took off to the east, low above Bloor Street 5 minutes later.

Thursday January 3, 2002
Brian Tjernstrom reports:   Mandy was on an east balcony of the Four Seasons between 12:40 and 1:00 pm.

Tuesday January 1, 2002
Harry Crawford reports:  Both peregrines were on their respective north east corners of the Renaissance Plaza at 7:58am:  Mandy was feeding and stayed around until 8:45am.  Windwhistler-Spike moved to a roof pipe at 8:08, the east ledge at 8:18 and by 8:36 was shoulder to shoulder with Mandy, pulling away on her prey.  He was also gone by 8:45am.  One of the peregrines was on the top of the south Bay 'y' between 9:05 and 10:00am.  Mandy was on the south side of the CIBC building between 1:15 and 1:35pm.  Windwhistler-Spike was on the south east corner of 77 Bloor West at 2:15pm.  He was preening and at 2:55pm gave two head bobs and took off to the south.
