This week Peter Bell (@PittPeregrines) followed peregrine fledgling C1 around the Cathedral of Learning as she practiced her flying skills.
Monday evening, June 13: Peter waited for C1 to fledge but left the area just 10 minutes too soon (video above).
Tuesday, June 14: C1 spent the day whining for attention and shouting for food. (Notice that the incoming adult is already molting.)
Wednesday June 15: A rare photo. C1 in flight!
Thursday June 16: Many thunderstorms and heavy downpours. C1 stayed put long enough for Peter to photograph her from above. She’s not as close as she looks. Peter’s camera can really zoom. 🙂
This weekend C1 will fly to other buildings as she expands her flight skills. Soon she’ll be hard to find … and that’s as it should be.
