When I reviewed yesterday’s time lapse video I saw Morela entice an unseen male to court with her at the Cathedral of Learning peregrine nest. She bowed with him in the 7 and 8 o’clock hours but she wasn’t with Terzo. Ecco is back!
In this Day-in-a-Minute video you can see both courtship sessions with Ecco, then Terzo at the nest alone at 10:30am. (Nothing else happened for the rest of the day.)
Morela and Ecco bowed at 7:08a in the video below.
In their second bowing session at 8:17a they nearly touched beaks, then Ecco checked the sky.
Terzo arrived two hours later and felt comfortable standing there, unthreatened, for 50 minutes.
These two male peregrines still haven’t figured out who “owns” the Cathedral of Learning but at this point it doesn’t matter. It’s too late in the season to raise a family.
