The window opening where the nest is located seems very small quarters for the now 4 hatched chicks. Some background discussion has been taking place with MassWildlife officials about the possibility of relocating the nest to more open space in order to allow the chicks the roomr needed for the next stage of growth. Stay tuned!

The chick continues to receive regular feedings and is growing right on schedule. What a treat to watch at least one adult feed and the chick receive regular feedings in late afternoon light. The chick is starting to stretch its wings and making pre-flight flapping efforts.

The activityaround the Peregrine falcon nest site continues in fits and starts with bursts of acttion and long periods of quiet! Upon arrival this morning, the male was perched in beautiful morning sun against a sapphire blue sky. Out of nowhere the female appears and circles one of the buildings and out of fisght. She returns a few minutes later with pray in talon and zooms up to a perch ledge to rip apart a bluejay. Quite a show to watch the systematic feeding frenzy.

Discovered this male Red-bellied Woodpecker one morning during a walk along the Methuen Rail Trail. Over many mornings, it kept making an incessant series of calls that suggested a nearby nest. After many visits and lots of patinece, finally located the nest. No chicks yet!!
