Yesterday, 5 June 2019 at around 4:20pm, Michelle Kienholz watched both young peregrines flying at the Cathedral of Learning. “Yellow” landed on the 30th floor balcony. “Red” flew so well that he chased his parents, trying to grab food from them.

Michelle noticed the birds because they were so vocal. If you hear squawking in the air near the Cathedral of Learning, look up and you may see the peregrines.

p.s. Michelle posted videos on Facebook, available to Pittsburgh Falconuts members at this link: https://www.facebook.com/michelle.kienholz/videos/10157333049422767/
