Fledgling Alert!

The air up there in the clouds is very pure and fine, bracing and delicious. And why shouldn’t it be? —it is the same the angels breathe. — Mark Twain

For the past few months, I have been following the peregrine falcons nesting on a building in downtown Boise. I’ve been watching these little ones since they were still eggs.  There were four eggs and three hatched, producing two female chicks and a male.  Today, the male (unofficially dubbed Wall-e) fledged! The video below shows some footage of him sitting on top of the IdanHa Hotel, several blocks away from the nest box.

Thank you to Boise ISP Fiberpipe for hosting the peregrine cam and posting all the footage!
