Lawrence Peregrines: White Pantaloons!

June 1, 2016 in In the Nest Box

CF2C2074-001The Lawrence Peregrines look to be a few days away from fledging, or making first flight.  The age of the white pantaloons! This may happen a day or two earlier or later, but most chicks do go through this phase around Day 33 where they have large fluffs of down conspicuously surrounding their legs, much more prominently than anywhere else on their bodies.  This photo shows three of the four chicks!
