Lawrence Peregrines: Verizon Cell Tower

February 8, 2023 in Near the Clock Tower

On Feb. 8, 2023, made a search for the Lawrence Peregrines all along Merrimack Street and then on the north side of the Merrimack River in the extended area around the Casey Bridge. Discovered both Peregrines loafing on hot air exhaust ledges located on the south side of the Verizon cell tower. These have been regular winter perching locations and facing south for maximum sunshine exposure!

At this point in the annual breeding cycle, they are renewing the pair bond and spending more time in perch locations together, or nearby one another. Still a bit early to see how this season plays out and where the female will decide to lay eggs, around the end of March or early April.
