This morning I got a call from Peter Bell and the news was bad.
Peter had just gotten off the bus to come watch Pitt’s peregrine family but instead of finding E2 and his son in the air, he found Silver Boy’s body in the middle of Forbes Avenue in front of the art museum. He’d been hit by a car. One of his parents was on Heinz Chapel steeple, staring at the spot where Silver Boy died.
We got permission from the Game Commission to bury this year’s only fledgling. Peter dug the hole and we said goodbye.
The season’s over. Silver Boy is dead.
