Out of the Box!
The peregrine falcon chick ventured out of the nest box late yesterday afternoon!
As the chick continues to grow it will continue to be more and more active and may leave the box, as it did yesterday. The chick did eventually return to the box, but even if it were not to return, there is no cause for alarm. The parents will still guard and feed the chick and the building ledge provides opportunities for the chick to find shelter from the elements.
