This picture is not recent — it was taken on May 4 — but I knew you’d like it.
This is Val, the female peregrine at the Westinghouse Bridge, protecting her nest and eggs. Her chicks hatched some time before May 21 (we’re not sure when; there’s no webcam) so her babies are about a week to ten days younger than those at the Gulf Tower.
She’s very protective.
What a good mom!
