Yesterday while the weather was unusually warm and sunny Morela made several visits to the Cathedral of Learning peregrine nest.
Her morning visits were made alone, sometimes digging the scrape (nest bowl), sometimes loafing on the front perch. She lingered there for half an hour.
In the afternoon Morela returned to lure Terzo into courtship. The video above at 3:05pm shows her bowing and “ee-chuping” for an extended period while Terzo is perched out of camera view above her. Her voice gets excited when he drops down to bow with her.
Morela and Terzo will visit the nest more often as egg laying time approaches in mid March. Tune in to the National Aviary’s Cathedral of Learning falconcam at: http://www.aviary.org/PF-NestCam1.
