Peregrine Falcon: Woburn fledgling in flight!

July 11, 2016 in Peregrine Falcon Woburn

_W7I3692-001Always a beautiful sight to see a young peregrine fledgling in flight around the natal area.  The development of flight in young falcons signals the onset of a totally new stage in life and new behavior.  Peregrine Falcon fledgling research by Steve Sherrod has shown that for several weeks after leaving the nest, the young falcons concentrate their activities around the nest cliff.
