Yellow Pages Falcons seen on site

March 24, 2019 - Scarborough - Yellow Pages

Marion Nash Reports:

There is some good news to report from the Yellow pages nest site. Our fear was that the resident pair had abandoned the site as a result of the length of time it took to remove the the huge Yellow pages signs at the top of the Milner building, as the resident adults had not been seen for months shortly after the sign removal started and since the sign removal had been completed.

Observations today yielded some great news, as two adult peregrines were back on site and very active in and around the upper elevations and ledges of the Milner nest building! Copulation was also witnessed on several occasions throughout the time that I was on site watching!

While it was impossible to identify the identity of the adult peregrines with the low powered binoculars in hand, it was quite obvious that the pair were pretty serious about their intentions, and it would appear like they have selected the same nesting ledge on the building that they hatched their eggs on last year! :-)

Sorry, no pictures this go-round…..

But spring is in the air, finally!!!
