At 6:35pm the juvenile male peregrine at the Cathedral of Learning made his first flight.
Peter Bell, Mary DeVaughn and I just happened to be looking up when the juvie pumped his way to the northeast side of the building. Wow!
He must have done well because his dad, perched on the lightning rod, watched him fly but didn’t feel the need follow and see if he was OK. (The parents do follow and check on them if they see something going wrong.)
