Peregrines seen on the Clock Tower together!

February 25, 2015 in On the Clock Tower

The clock is ticking down to the start of the peregrine breeding season.  Since the historic Lawrence matriarch female has been retired to the Tufts Wildlife Clinic, the male has attracted a new female friend.  They continue to spend lots of time together.  Initially they have been seen mostly at the Verizon Cell Tower.  Then the female started to be seen solo around the Clock Tower perch locations.  This morning she was perched on one of the ledges above the east clock face while the male was above on one of the window sills just below the base of weather vane also on the east side of the building.  Very encouraging signs as we may be less than 4 weeks away from first eggs being laid!
