Back At The Nest!

New female peregrine at the Cathedral of Learning nest, 17 Oct 2019, 10:19a

Here she is again!

The new female peregrine visited the nestbox at the Cathedral of Learning — again! — on Thursday 17 October in the 10 o’clock hour.

I’m heading out now to go birding. Watch for more news when I have time today/tomorrow.

  1. Kate, will they clean the nest box during the off season? Would the new female find that more attractive than a site that shows use by another bird? Or, if it’s a good nest site, they don’t care if it was used previously by another bird?

  2. She is a very distinctive female. Think we should name her “Buffy” for her coloring. We’ll see if she is a vampire slayer or a sweet pig-tailed girl from the 60’s. Family Affair. Time will tell.
