Peregrine Falcons Return to Spot Where Babies Drowned

By Sarah Klein


Two peregrine falcons that nest each year on a ledge at Winnipeg’s downtown Radisson Hotel have returned. Princess and Trey nested on the ledge last year, but unfortunately their three little chicks drowned in a heavy rainfall last June. (see video of the dramatic rescue)

Three more chicks have hatched this year, and so far are said to be safe — until it rains.

CBC Manitoba, in partnership with Shaw, have put up a live webcam of the nest, which sits 13 storeys above Portage Avenue.
