Today the Pitt peregrine chicks are three weeks old with feathered faces and feather tips showing on their wings and tails. When they aren’t sleeping they are very active, motoring all over the nest.
Yesterday afternoon the chicks disappeared when they laid down flat at the front left corner of the nestbox. They were in this camera’s blind spot, but you can see them on the snapshot camera when that happens. Click here to see the current snapshot.
The video above compresses their day into a minute — May 7, 2018 from 8a to 8p. You won’t see them for a bit in the afternoon but they looked like this (above) from a different angle.
Watch them “live” on the National Aviary falconcam at the Cathedral of Learning.
