By late June two of this yr’s juvenile Pitt peregrines remained in Oakland. Typically they waited for his or her father Ecco to carry meals. Typically they left campus to go looking. Finally I noticed solely the grownup peregrines on the Cathedral of Studying.
Then on 30 June one thing modified. Michelle Kienholz noticed and heard a loud juvenile begging loudly. Yesterday morning my husband heard plenty of peregrine begging from St. Paul’s Cathedral steeple.
By 4:30pm the falconcam confirmed that Yellow Lady had come dwelling for a handout and Ecco was having none of it.
Right here’s an edited sequence of occasions. I’ve spared you 8 minutes of screeching.
Ecco is letting Yellow Lady know that it’s time to fend for herself.
