Very foggy morning so no sightings.

She moved along to the west side and then back to the corner where she appeared to be soaking up the sun. Check at 4:05, she had gone.

At 3:20, two birds were on the ledge!! At 3:21 one took off and perched on the last "e" in Centre. Checking at 4 p.m., no birds were visible on the ledge.

Checking at 10:50 one bird was on the ledge and one bird was behind the nest box! This bird took off about 2 minutes after I started watching. It appeared to be Windwhistler.

Monday October 11, 2004
Linda Woods reports:
2:10 Checking in on the former nest ledge at the Sheraton Hotel, Windwhistler is on the ledge facing south enjoying the sunshine. Moments later Wind landed on the ledge. Windwhistler started "chattering" and walked over to the spot the actual nest was, as Wind walked the length of the ledge and hoped into the nesting box and looked down onto Windwhistler, she is also "chattering" This chattering that the peregrines were doing was not like the loud vocal "cherub" that can be heard during courtship season, but soft and almost "budgie like" vocalizing. They remained on the ledge in my view for about 20 minutes.
