I don’t know about you but without a successful nest at Pitt this spring I’m starved for a Fledge Watch at Schenley Plaza. It’s always been a great time to get together and indulge our passion for peregrines.
With that in mind, Pittsburgh Falconut John English and I are going to hold a Gulf Tower Fledge Watch at Flag Plaza on Saturday May 31 and Sunday June 1.
My “guess-timate” is that the Gulf Tower chicks will fledge between May 29 and June 3 with the most exciting activity on Sunday June 1.
Where: Flag Plaza (Boy Scouts building), 1275 Bedford Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15219
When: Saturday May 31 & Sunday June 1, noon to 4:00pm, weather permitting.
John or I (or both of us) will be on site during those times — though not if it’s raining or stormy.
Come for as little or as long as you’d like. Bring binoculars if you have them.
Hope to see you there!
Please leave a comment below if you plan to come.
