Lawrence Peregrines: 4 chicks ready to fledge!

June 5, 2016 in In the Nest Box

CF2C2986-001The 4 Lawrence Peregrine chicks are so ready to fledge! At close to 40 days old, aside from perhaps a tuft of down feathers remaining on the crown, these 4 peregrine chicks are fully developed and ready to take flight. Their next major change in appearance will be around one year of age, when they begin to molt and acquire their adult plumage as their feathers are replaced.  Stay tuned!!
