    Three Fledged Falcons!

    The pen door was opened at 9:13am and the male immediately took off - making a spectacular and strong flight out of sight (he was relocated several blocks away a short time later) The two young females were more tentative…one took a short flight and then stayed put on the ledge for several hours!  The final chick took some time to come out of the box and then spent a couple of hours on the ledge before finally making a short flight.  As we moved through the afternoon and into the evening all three of the chicks made additional flights.  All of them were doing well flying and just as importantly…landing!

    We’ll resume monitoring tomorrow morning and watch through the day to ensure their progress continues.
