Peregrine chick ready to fly (Falco peregrinus)

  • Gleb Berloff
The last peregrine chick remaining in the nest after the two eldest failed in their first flight and were sent to the Raptor Foundation to recover for a release today, it was getting ready to fly as well.
However, these fledgelings have an appalling first flight success rate. For the past few years, there was a 0% success on the first flight. Maybe this one will change all of that. It was sure getting flappy today...
