Lawrence Peregrines: banded fledglings!

June 10, 2016 in Near the Clock Tower

CF2C3826-001The Lawrence Peregrine chicks are now being seen around the Clock Tower both on ledges and roof edges.  they are going through the initial phases of learning how to fly.  It is very normal to watch them as they hop, skip, and jump.  The high winds have made flight attempts a bit more of a challenge.  They are quick to use their talons to grab hold of the edge of the roof to keep from join over!  Here is a photo of one of the chicks with leg bands black/green 85/BS!
