Yesterday morning three peregrine chicks hopped all over the place at the Downtown Pittsburgh nest.

Thanks to Donna Memon for capturing this image at just the right moment!

 

UPDATE ON THURSDAY MAY 16:

Aha!  I love to be proved wrong when the news is happy!  There are FOUR chicks in the Downtown nest.  Thanks to Nathalie Picard for alerting me.  Here’s a screenshot:

    Wow they’re big! I wonder how old they are compared to Baby.

    The Downtown chicks are at least 5 days older than the Pitt nestling.
