Two peregrine-related events are coming soon. Save these dates!
- PEREGRINE CHAT: Next Wednesday, May 19 from 7:00pm to 7:30pm, Dr. Todd Katzner of the National Aviary will guest moderate the Cathedral of Learning webcam chat to answer your questions about peregrine falcons. Dr. Katzner is a raptor expert and the Director of Conservation and Field Research at the National Aviary. To participate, login at the “Please sign in or sign up for free” links on the Cathedral of Learning webcam page. For more background, see this blog about the chat held on April 28.
- PITT FLEDGE WATCH: My favorite week of the year is coming — Pitt Peregrine Fledge Watch! When the young peregrines are about to take their first flight I sit at the tent at Schenley Plaza and watch the fun. Come join me! We’ll see young peregrines flapping and adult peregrines flying. We’ll see how Dorothy and E2 teach their kids to fly and we’ll have a grand old time. Save these dates, weather permitting. More details to follow in the days ahead.
- Friday May 28, noon to 2:15pm. Kick off the Memorial Day Weekend with peregrine fun.
- Saturday May 29, 8:00am to 11:00am. I’ll stay until noon if I know you’re coming!
- Tuesday June 1, noon to 2:15pm. This is the Rain Date for Friday May 28, but I’ll be at Schenley Plaza on June 1st even if it didn’t rain on Friday!
- Wednesday and Thursday June 2 & 3, 1:00pm to 2:15pm. I will also be there before and after work some days, to be determined.
