Bye Bye Birdies

Both of the nestlings have flown but the Audubon Society of Rhode Island (ASRI) suggests you keep checking the peregrine cam for a while longer. From Monday’s Updates from the Nest Box:

Both Peregrine Falcon chicks have fledged as of this morning. Although they will not return to the nest box at all once they have fledged, you may be able to spot them on the live webcam stream for a couple days since they don’t venture far. The fledglings will be dependent on their parents for food for another 4-6 weeks. During this time, they will first get more comfortable flying and then they will attempt to hunt, mostly unsuccessfully! Good luck to the newest Providence Peregrines!

All . . . by  . . . myself . . . (To be sung to the tune of “All By Myself.”) Image taken last Sunday on Father’s Day.

Don’t forget to Invest in the Nest! You can help keep the camera maintained and running.
