From Saturday night -
6/28/2013 :: Update on Juvenile Peregrines
All four of the Peregrine Falcon juveniles are flying confidently and honing their hunting skills. They have been spending less time at the ledge so as to become more independent. At times they return for rest, at nightfall, for protection from the elements, or if they are hungry and have had an unsuccessful hunt. After fledging, juveniles can remain dependent on their parents for up to two months. The adult falcons participate in their young's practice of flying and hunting, bringing them food if they have not been able to hunt their own, and even doing food drops to teach them how to dive. After these skills are attained to the best of their ability, the juveniles will leave the scrape permanently. They will continue to hunt and grow, and eventually they will search for a mate to nest and begin their life as a mature falcon, raising young as a parent themselves
