Peregrine female on constant lookout

May 21, 2013 in Peregrines at 250 Canal St.

The female is on constant lookout over the new nestbox location.  The nest box is located on a high out of view rooftop.  The perch locations are changing with the new location and time will be needed to determine the mpost grequent and regular new perch locations.  The Peregrines know that the chicks are always at risk to any one of a number of predators and hence a constant vigil is required to maintain safety.  Note V/5 leg bands on left leg!
