A Look Back at 2012

Last May we saw the Pitt peregrines on the nestcam every day.

Since then we’d had a long, quiet, eight months but soon — by the end of February — our pair will be back on camera every day.

To get in the mood for the upcoming nesting season I created a slideshow of 2012 peregrine highlights from the University of Pittsburgh’s Cathedral of Learning.

Here Dorothy stands next to E2 as he broods their first nestling on April 27,2012.

Click on their photo to watch the highlights.

p.s.  I wish I could have made a slideshow of the Downtown peregrines but they weren’t on camera last year.  If you’re in Downtown Pittsburgh, please watch for the peregrines and report what you see.  Click here for details.

    That was a wonderful slideshow! Thanks, can’t wait for this season. I hope Beauty has a good year, so unpredictable in Rochester.
