It feels like a very long time since we watched peregrines nesting on the webcams. This photo of Dori feeding her chicks at the Gulf Tower is more than eight months old.
But nesting season is not so far away. This month peregrine couples are getting reacquainted, next month we’ll see them courting at the nest, in March the females will lay eggs.
In the meantime (at last!) I’ve created a slideshow of Gulf Tower nesting highlights from 2011. The first slide is dated February 22. That’s just six weeks away.
Click on Dori’s photo for a look backward at Dori, Louie and their five chicks in 2011 and a reminder of what to look forward to next month.
