Peregrine Falcons have been nesting continuously on the Radisson Hotel in downtown Winnipeg since 1989. |
In 2006, the Project partnered with CBC Manitoba and Shaw to bring you an intimate look at the lives of our famous downtown peregrine pair. The following photos are taken using the webcam installed 18 storeys above the nestledge on the east-side of the Radisson Hotel in downtown Winnipeg.
This year, our resident pair are Trey and Princess. Trey is one of T-Rex's and Madame's offspring from their 1996 wild nest on the east-side nestledge, the same ledge being using this year. Princess is a 2002 wild-hatched female from the NSP Riverside Plant in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Trey came home with her in tow in 2004 and together they supplanted Madame who had been overwintering in Winnipeg and at the Radisson since 1990. This is Trey's and Princess' third year together as the Radisson resident pair, and the first time they have nested on the east-side nestledge. This year they raised three young, two males, The Little Daredevil and Bandit and one female, Radisson. The Little Daredevil died shortly after fledging but his sister Radisson is the resident female on the U of A Campus in Edmonton, Alberta.
