6/12/18: Out and about

All four peregrine falcon chicks have officially fledged.

The male and female from the GVSU nest box have been observed flying between the Eberhard Center and the Grand Rapids Public Museum.  One spent the night in a tree along the river, having ended up on the ground by the museum last evening.  This morning she made her way back to the Eberhard Center and is expected to join her sister soon.

One of the females from the KCC nest box spent the night on a building across Ionia from the courthouse.  One of the adults was watching over her most of the evening.  The second fledgling and adult have not been seen since Sunday, possibly because they have moved to the west side of the courthouse, where it is much harder to find them.  Hopefully we’ll catch sight of them soon, as the juveniles get more proficient at flying.  I consider it hopeful that I’ve not heard any reports of dead falcons.
