DOWNTOWN TORONTO - SHERATON CENTRE ARCHIVES

January - February 2004

Jan Chudy reports:
10:35 a.m. As I looked out my north facing window on the 61st floor of First Canadian Place, a peregrine flew by going east. I guessed it to be Spike since it wobbled a bit every so often. I picked up my binoculars to see if any other bird was around and found one on the north west corner of 140 Adelaide AND one on the Sheraton ledge. So, I have now seen three birds at one time.

One bird was standing on the nest box at the Sheraton at 10:45. On checking at 10:55 it had gone but appeared to have moved to the north west corner of 140 Adelaide where it remained until 12:05. At 12:15, no bird was in sight. At 1:55 I spied a bird on the Sheraton ledge. On checking at 4:55, one bird is on the Sheraton ledge and an other is on the north west corner of 140 Adelaide.

Well, my report is not as exciting as Scott Scobie's. Having noted no activity at the Sheraton all day, on looking out my north facing window in First Canadian Place at 4:05 p.m. I spotted a falcon on the north west corner of 140 Adelaide. Based on it's size, I took it to be Spike. He stayed there until I left the office at 5:05, rotating himself every so often so that he was facing the fading sun. Then, standing on King outside Royal Trust Tower I watched him describe lazy circles over Adelaide for about 5 minutes then he flew off east along Adelaide.

2:45 p.m.: Very exciting viewing these past few moments. I was looking out my window (facing the Sheraton) as I spoke on the telephone to a colleague in Montreal when I realized I was seeing two falcons playing tag and the upside down tag thing over the Sheraton. They moved over University Avenue and I lost sight of them. Yipee!!!
