Peregrine male chick fledges: June 3!

June 3, 2012 in In the Nest Box

And then there was one!  The male fledged on Sunday morning and left the female chick in the nest box on her own.  New Balance staffers report that the male was located at street level behind the super tight security gates on the New Balance property.  Calls were placed to a nearby volunteer who helped secure the male and return him in the company of NB security staff to the nest box.  Meanwhile the female was fed during the day and started to spend more time flapping her own wings perparing to fledge herself!
