Lawrence Peregrines: week of May 1, 2023

May 24, 2023 in Near the Clock Tower

May 2, 2023 under overcast skies, wind from E at 8MPH, and temp at 51F. The sightings of the Lawrence Peregrines have been less regular compared to eight weeks.  The first stop today was around the Pacific Mills red brick smoke stack. The young female was seen moving around the gear near the top. This photo shows her jumping and landing near by with wings full outstretched.

Ten minutes later, after moving over to the Clock Tower, discovered the banded male perched on the pole that extends out from the nest box. The plumage on the adult male is notably different than the young female, with dark gray coloration compared to the brownish tones on the female.
