The Pitt peregrines have flown. The young red-tailed hawks in Schenley Park are getting ready to go. Here are photos of their recent activity by Gregory Diskin.
The youngsters are fully feathered now, ledge walking and wing exercising. On June 3, one of them flapped so hard he was nearly airborne.
When they aren’t busy exercising, they gaze at their parents who often perch in a large sycamore tree across the way.
And they watch intensely as their parents fly. “So that’s how it’s done.”
