l have been a part of a few successful wildlife rescues and educate people on wildlife and environmental issues. We have helped in issues to save wetlands, woodlands etc.to save the precious life within. It is well worth the effort. We can all learn to live and work together. Education is the key. In 2011 I won an education award from Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority for the work and photography I do. Habitat is fast disappearing and with it, many species are also declining in numbers. So many species can actually tell us the health of our environment and alert us to problems we need to know about. They all need to be protected.

Peregrin falcons,Quest & Kendall mating. March 24

In Scarborough Ann & I went to visit Quest and Kendall. A peregrin falcon couple. On Saturday we watched them . Seeing only Quest who is the female at first sunning and preening herself in the sun on a ledge. With a very full crop. Kendal came in very quickly and she went to greet him. We were unable to see them around the corner but they had mated near their nesting box. Sunday march 24th we went back again. They are beautiful birds and easy to spend time watching. Upon our arrival Ann saw Kendal sitting on a building roof across from the nest box building. And then I spotted Quest on top of the other roof where the nest is located. He was sitting on one foot enjoying the sun. And she was preening. Then the action started. Kendal flew across to her and they mated. It was amazingly beautiful. Just a beautiful sheen of entertwined feathers.They broke off and Kendal did not fly far. Just to the corner of the building within about 3 feet of Quest. He preened. And after seeing they were quite content we moved on. It wont be long until the eggs start coming along and a new family will soon be born. Note on one of the photos you will see a wire coming off of Quest's back. This is a radio transmitter for tracking her. The male peregrin is quite a bit smaller that the female as you will also note in these photos. The one photo is Ann photographing the falcons.
