A Day In The Life Of…

Published by at 6:30 am under Peregrines

For those of you who aren’t on Twitter you may have missed this cool video from @PittPeregrines.

As the Twitter persona of Dorothy and E2, @PittPeregrines has gathered a large following by keeping close tabs on Pitt’s favorite peregrine family.

He/she is also something of a technical whiz who compiled all the falconcam’s snapshots from Monday May 14 into one rapid YouTube video. The result, embedded above, is a day in the life of the Pitt peregrine chicks in only four minutes.

What’s the trio’s favorite activity this week? Sleeping!

What’s our favorite activity to watch on camera?  Feedings!  The chicks were fed six times that day and it went by very fast.

Very ingenious video, @PittPeregrines. Thanks for sharing!

    The unhatched egg may not survive to be collected and candled on banding day. A bit before 4:00 PM and one of the chicks seems to be enjoying him/herself playing with it.

    They’re so cute how they just flop down & sleep

    And today at around 3:00 pm eastern time, one of the birds is again rolling around the unhatched egg. Definitely having a good time, flapping its wings and actually trying to pick it up with his talons.

    The day in the life video was absolutely wonderful to watch. Thanks for posting it and of course to the person who created it.
