Lawrence Peregrines: fledgling building flight muscles!

June 21, 2016 in Near the Clock Tower

After fledging, the young peregrine falcons continue to work at strengthening their flight muscles. They are frequently seen near the natal site flapping their wings and preparing for increasingly longer flights around the local area. This young male fledgling was recently seen with two other siblings on the corner of a rooftop of an abandoned warehouse building in the late day sun! Notice the leg bands, black over green, 85/BS.

For those with an interest, 5 photos of the flapping male fledgling:
