Peregrine Falcon: Woburn fledgling vocalizing

July 12, 2016 in Peregrine Falcon Woburn

_W7I4146-001Shortly after fledging, the young falcons remain close to the nest and are frequently observed perching on nearby rocky outcroppings. Young falcons beg for food from the adults, often loudly vocalizing. The parents will keep track of the fledglings through vocalizations and continue to bring them food wherever they end up – baby birds are excellent at begging and yelling for food, according to Chris Martin at NH Audubon. Peregrine fledglings will continue to have food delivered by their parents for up to a month after they initially leave the nest and grow strong enough to explore the nearby skies alone.
