6/26/17: Fledging and Flight practice

Late last night, and several times this morning, the juvenile falcon that left the nest box on Saturday has been seen taking short flights from one building to another around the Eberhard Center.  Reports are that the flights are getting stronger.  The adults have not been seen feeding it yet, but I’m sure it won’t be long before parents and offspring reconnect.

A few good flights are not a guarantee that all will be well from now on, so please continue to send in your observations.  Many thanks to those who have already done so!

  1. Saw two peregrines at about 2 or 3 PM today 6/26/17 flying over Ionia Ave at about Trowbridge St, soaring for several minutes in front of the Belknap Hill, riding on a nice westerly wind.

  2. I expect that would be the two adults. It’s a little soon for a fledgling to be up to that kind of flying in this afternoon’s winds. Thanks for the report!
