Peregrine Falcon: Woburn chick begging for food!

June 16, 2016 in Peregrine Falcon Woburn

CF2C5785-001Stopped by just after sunrise this morning and found the young chick begging for food by throwing its head back and letting out a muffled call.  At this point, it looks like this chick is around three weeks old.  Flight feathers and body contour feathers are poking through the down. Very active, this young bird is moving around quite a bit in the nest scrape and exploring the restricted area around the nest. The chick has a marked interest in anything that moves.
