Peregrines return to weathervane perch!

July 15, 2013 in On the Clock Tower

With the completion of the 2013 breeding cycle, the breeding pair of Peregrines have returned to their regular perch on various struts on the weathervane atop the Clock Tower.  They moved thier nest this year to a previously used alternative nest location on the north side of the river in an abandoned mill building.  The nest spece was too small to raise the 4 hatchlings and staffers at MassWildlife move d the nest to a nearby rooftop location.  Now the breeding cycle is complete and the peregrines are seen with growing regularity back at the old perch!
