Good news for Pitt Peregrine Fans!

The new female peregrine, first seen in September by Dr. Alan Juffs, has made an important step at the Cathedral of Learning. On Monday evening 14 October 2019 she visited the nestbox for the first time.

Peter Bell of Pitt Peregrines Facebook page sent me the photo at top from the snapshot archive. I pulled the archived video and cropped it to the time span of her visit.

Isn’t she beautiful!

By visiting the nest she’s laid an even stronger claim to the Cathedral of Learning. I don’t know if a second female is still annoying her … but so far so good!

Thank you, Pete Bell! … Visit his Pitt Peregrines Facebook page here.
