Melbourne, Victoria, Australia Peregrines
« on: October 03, 2018, 12:18:29 PM »

The Melbourne peregrines are now back in their tiny shoebox of a nest, where they do not even have space to turn around. I would love to see them with a much more spacious nest, with a deck and perches.

The article below shows four eggs in the nest on September 9, but I have only seen three eggs whenever I have checked the site.

Hatching has now begun.

The first chick:



One of the parents has a very pronounced eye ring, and is probably new this year.



At least two chicks have hatched:



I hope they will have a very successful year.

This box is so small the Mom keeps slipping down as she feeds chicks.
I am surprised she nested here again.

Cute pics, shep!

I am glad to see that in spite of their unsuitable, tiny nest box, the chicks seem to be progressing well.

I was mistaken. Male 2 did not fledge.
The female died, and Male 2 doesnt look good.
Male 1 returned to say hello
