This afternoon I found this photo in the webcam archives from the University of Pittsburgh peregrine nest. I love the action in this shot!
Though I know E2 (the adult male peregrine) is the first to leave the nest after he and his mate Dorothy bow together, I never see him actually doing it. Finally a webcam shot captured the action.
Here you see Dorothy still bowing in the back and E2 just leaving. He’s so fast he’s a blur. Immediately airborne!

p.s. Sorry the Aviary falconcam website isn’t up yet. I’ll let you know when they’re live.
