FRIDAY TRAINING TOSS

Good evening again!

 

Well today's toss was very interesting to say the least.  The birds were well fed last night so they weren't in a big hurry to trap this morning.  They certainly had a good time once they arrived home and then slowly filtered in.

We now have the live feature working perfectly and it will be set for real-time clocking on the next toss which is planned for Sunday morning - weather permitting.  The birds will be in proper form and we're expecting good trapping, so you'll have a good idea then on how your birds on doing for that toss.

The live trapping feature will now be activated for all future training tosses!

The birds are looking super and we are getting very excited for race day!

 

Cheers,

100% FRIDAY

Good evening once again,

 

My misunderstanding last night...there was no training toss this morning, but there is most definitely one tomorrow.

 

Rick is taking the birds in the morning, and I am linking the results via internet...while I'm at work.  Please be patient and the results will be posted - I may have to be at the house to download the results off the system...I'm still getting used to the whole thing.

 

Terry Gilmore has been a great teacher to me with this whole wincompanion program...so let's see how it works out for us!

 

Again, there is a toss Friday morning and we will have the results posted by approximately 6pm at the latest...if I cannot do it from work through the intenet.

 

The weekend will be easier to post more immediately as I will be home.

 

Thanks again,

Rick and I wanted to report that the pigeons have been training daily this past week and the distances were approximately 40 miles.  The birds are coming back nicely and things are looking great for race day!

 

We will have the WiFi system connected to the loft as early as tomorrow morning and then you will finally be able to see your birds coming in!

Good evening Niagara Peninsula One Loft Racers!

Rick and I have been busy over the last couple of weeks and wanted to give an update for you.

All birds were e-banded and are training up to 40 miles now.

We are working to get the internet out to our loft - as there are some glitches going on with our internet provider...but it will be running soon enough!

Furthermore, there are approximately 265 birds in the loft.

 

Thanks for reading - and we'll keep you posted!

UPDATE FOR AUGUST 7TH, 2017

Hello from Niagara

As you must expect, things have been busy but exciting here at the loft.  The birds are doing well - and in fact our visitor, Terry Wintle was here yesterday and got to see the height of the birds flying over our property.  Terry made a wonderful statement about the birds being a mile high up in the sky.  What an exciting thing to see - so many birds flying so high!

The birds are healthy and looking great with training underway.

We're loving this busy life of the niagara peninsula one loft race!
