4 Peregrines hanging out in the evening.

This Peregrine was on the perch by 5:42am


On May 31, 2010 the door to the hack box was opened and the first bird was out.


On May 30, 2010 the birds are well feathered out and ready to go.

On May 25, 2010 they were photographed during a hack box clean up session. If you click on this photo, you will access an 8 second video clip of thismoment. The sound of 5 Peregrines screaming at the photographer completely overpowered the microphone. It does the same to your ears.
 
The latest image from our camera.
Very small birds in a big cage.

Visible here are 3 of the other 4. One is hiding in the corner.
Notice the facial markings of all the birds and contrast them with the bird in the first photo. Thats how much they changed in just 5 days.

Even a downy Peregrine going into the box is a thing of beauty.
