A Peregrine Falcon was observed sitting on the top of Robinson Place (provincial gov’t building) from 11 am into the afternoon on July 13 and could be seen from Water Street. It was not banded. Many MNR workers in the building got to see it sitting on the Ontario trillium logo at the sixth floor level of the building. This is the second recemt sighting of a peregrine. Another (or the same?) bird was seen by Gail Jackson on the SW corner of the building on the morning of June 21 plucking a small songbird.
