“What’s it like on the nestrail?” ask these peregrine sisters. “How come you can get up there and we haven’t been able to yet?”
That’s what it looks like they’re saying as their brother comes down from the nestrail with his back to the webcam. (See that brown feathered back at the bottom of the picture?)
Today at lunch time Fledge Watch, Little Brother hopped up on the nestrail and walked all the way to the west end of it. From Schenley Plaza we couldn’t see the nest but we had excellent views of Dorothy, his mother, making circles in the sky and Little Brother’s adventure.
The sisters were watching too. A co-worker who viewed the webcam while I was at Schenley Plaza said the sisters moved their heads as if they were at a tennis match.
And get a load of the look on the face of sister #3 at the far left. Apparently she doesn’t approve of ledge-walking. Harumph!
Come on down to Schenley Plaza and join us.
