Spring is here and the Falcons have returned to the nest at the Sheraton Hotel
From the Falconwatch website:
"WE - AND THE FALCONS - ARE BACK!!!!!!
March 21, 2010 - As Falconwatch starts each season, one of our tasks is to confirm the identity of the adult Peregrines. While it is relatively easy to distinguish between larger females and smaller males, it is not always as easy to tell individual birds apart. Three times in the history of the Sheraton Hamilton nest site an adult has been replaced by another of the same gender without any fuss to signal to Falconwatchers that a change has occurred. For this reason each year we try to confirm identities by getting a good look at the bands on the legs of the adult falcons. We are pleased to advise that, as of yesterday afternoon, we can confirm the presence once again of Madame X and Surge. Falconwatch 2010 has begun. Stay tuned!"
This past week I had an orange seized by U.S. customs. It's OK for an orange to travel all the way from California to the grocery store in Hamilton, Ontario but it's not OK for the same orange to cross the border from Canada to New York State.
I was allowed to keep my banana from South America!
Why does spell check no longer work on my blog?
