Linda Woods reports:
08:15 - York and Adelaide Sts. One bird flew into view and landed on the north -east corner of 130 Adelaide St, didn't see a peregrine on the ledge of the Sheraton Hotel.

12:15 - One peregrine can be seen on the south-east corner of the Sheraton Hotel.

One bird is still being seen in the area of the Sheraton Hotel and I think this may be Windwhistler.

Friday April 16, 2004
Linda Woods reports:
08:10 - 8:25: Peregrines not in view on the south side of the Sheraton Hotel

12:50 - 1:50: Peregrines not in view at either the Sheraton Hotel or #18 King St. Just before I left the area one adult could be seen flying around the south side of the Sheraton Hotel.

Thursday April 15, 2004
Linda Woods reports:
O8:10 08:25 - One adult seen on the Sheraton Ledge. Not visible from street level with the blind eye, using binoculars it can be seen sitting back from the edge of the ledge. Not sure if it is sitting on the nest box or just in front of it.

Wednesday April 14, 2004
Jan Chudy reports:
Checking at 9:30 a bird was on the Sheraton ledge. At 1:10, a bird was standing in the nest box. Between then and now, no other sightings.

Tuesday April 13, 2004
Jan Chudy reports:
Rainy morning so I could not see over to the Sheraton. However, as I looked over at 2:45 p.m. a bird flew in from the south west to the ledge and between then and 5:45 p.m. a bird was visible almost all the time on the Sheraton ledge.

Monday April 12, 2004
Jan Chudy reports:
Shortly before 10 a.m. I spotted a bird on the NE corner of 120 Adelaide. At 12:50, one bird was on the Sheraton ledge and an other was on the NW corner of 120 Adelaide. At 1p.m. the bird at the Sheraton flew off. Based on its wobbly flight, I thought it might be Spike. I walked along to Toronto Street and as I approached one bird was on the NW corner of the King Eddie. As I reached the hotel, it flew off towards the nest building. I watched from Toronto and Court (with Harry) until about 1:45 but saw nothing. Between 2 p.m. and 3:15 one bird was visible standing on the nest box at the Sheraton. On checking at 4:25, nothing was visible.

Friday April 9, 2004
Linda Woods reports:
09:15 - One adult seen flying south side of the Sheraton Hotel area.

10:30 - One adult on the south side of the Sheraton Hotel ( looks like a male) and I'm not sure but viewing from Adelaide and Yonge St. it appears that there may be a second peregrine in the tray of the Sheraton. ( the sunlight can reflect off the interior of the ledge). The male eventually flew off and sat on the north east corner of 130 Adelaide St.facing north.

Thursday April 8, 2004
Jan Chudy reports:
Between 9:50 and 12:10 a bird was on view almost continuously either on the NE corner of 120 Adelaide or on the Sheraton ledge. No sightings during the afternoon, but now at 6 p.m. one bird is in the very back left corner of the Sheraton ledge.

Monday April 5, 2004
Jan Chudy reports:
From 10:20 a.m. until 5:20 p.m. a bird was present virtually the whole time on the Sheraton ledge, or on the standpipe in the middle of the ledge.

Saturday April 3, 2004
Linda Woods reports:
08:20 - 09:00: One adult on the south side ledge of the Sheraton Hotel. No other peregrines in view.

Friday April 02, 2004
Jan Chudy reports:
At 10:25 this morning as I walked in to my 61st floor north facing office in First Canadian Place, two falcons took off from the Sheraton ledge and played talon tag above the hotel. They then swooped around a bit and one flew off. One returned to take up its perch on the standpipe in the middle of the ledge and is still there now (11 a.m.).

Tuesday March 30, 2004
Jan Chudy reports:
Both birds were sitting side by side on the Sheraton ledge this morning between 11 and 11:10. They both flew off within a few minutes of each other.
