Raymond Ng has the PRFA in a tree in the middle of the field between McKechnie and Sharpe Rd. A Scope is required.

Cheers,
Mel

Bridget Spencer and I found the PRFA (a lifer for her!) in a tree on Sharpe Rd very near to Old Dewdney Trunk Rd.

Cheers,
Mel

Frank Lu photographed the continuing Prairie Falcon in flight today as it flew over the dyke near Sharpe Rd and Connecting RD.

The PRFA is holding strong against his bigger cousin at Connecting and Mckechnie. I hear though he becomes a little chicken when the Gyr comes he leaves. When the Gyr leaves he returns. At least they have worked out a healthy relationship. :wink:

Cheers,
Mel

Yes, the trees on Connecting Road were occupied by Bald Eagles so the PRFA had to go elsewhere. Here's my photo of it after hunting in the rain:

Hi Paul my eyes did not study your photo enough when I first saw this but this is not the PRFA but a Merlin.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
