Ella has claimed the Radisson as her territory and paired up with Pip.
1st egg laid April 18 then 20th,23rd and the 28th.
1st hatch May 28th and 2nd chick hatched May 29th...so only two chicks this year at the Radisson.
Chicks banded June 22....Ella and Pip have two little boys.
Jennifer and un-banded male nested at the Manitoba Hydro Plant in Selkirk. Having three chicks one of which became grounded after fledging that we had a chance to pick up, checked out, banded and released back at Hydro. We named her Jennet after her mother Jennifer.
Mean while in West Wpg...Hart has been hanging around a great deal and perhaps would like to hold onto this territory...unless Ty returns ?
There has also been two different females visiting and both appear to have BLACK BANDS...meaning Manitoba birds. Hopefully will be able to ID them soon ?
