Lunchtime Sunday

One of the juveniles stretching wings.

A look at all three from outside the box.

Mother peregrine as she leaves from dropping off lunch.

I was at the site today and caught a few photos. Thank you to all the volunteers who came down today, it got a little warm that's for sure. So far all the kids are staying in the box... but we think this could change tomorrow as the temperatures move up some more. And a lunch video below:

Do the young birds fledge after dark?

Liz Schubert said...

No, that is highly unlikely. They hunker down and sleep, but they will fledge at dawn. I would say 85% of our fledges have happened between 6:00 and 7:30am.

Thanks Liz. I will be watching.
Thanks also to all who watch after our little falcons.

We are coming down early Saturday morning to help out. Hope we get to see them in action. :)

Hi Kent, that's great! See you then. Make sure to find Bob when you get there. He's usually on the sidewalk along South Temple.
