With only one nestling, Dorothy and E2 are spending lots of quality time with their only chick.
Above, after puttering around the edge of the nest Dorothy returns to the center and touches beaks with Baby.
Later, E2 takes over nest duty. He and Baby gaze into each others’ eyes.
And they touch beaks, too.
In a large brood these moments are fleeting. We’re getting a new look at peregrine family life this year.
