We watch over Pitt's campus and all surrounding areas from our home atop the Cathedral of Learning (not assoc with the Nat'l Aviary)
Taking in the sunset. Can you find me on the Heinz steeple?
Oy! What an empty nest! #pghfalconcam
If you non-flying types have pictures of the kids once they leave the nest, we'd love to share them!
FIVE WEEKS OLD! Getting rested up for flying next week. #pghfalconcam
Here's a picture of him leaving the nest. Only his tail is visible upper right. Go Adventurer! #pghfalconcam
More firsts! Kids checking out the ledge. Might be visible from Schenley Plaza now. #pghfalconcam
Lots of wingercise today! First flights next week! Nearby? Come watch! ow.ly/aZIGk #pghfalconcam
We're not scared of the thunderstorm, just keeping dry.
Food is a powerful motivator! Our explorer chick has returned to the nest!
All the chicks up on the rail now, except for the explorer that fell off yesterday. D prefers the shade
Ooops! Pecked at the wrong file to upload before. Touchscreens and beaks... #ChickOverboard #pghfalconcam
Oh my! 1 of the kids fell off the front of the nest just before noon! Don't worry, he'll be ok! #pghfalconcam
The kids are so tall they can finally see over the nest rail - and it is quite the view!
4 WEEKS OLD! Got banded this week and this morning a chick reached the nest rail! #pghfalconcam
So embarrassed! Can't believe I let them get me. #pghfalconcam
Have to workout our wings and get them strong enough to fly. 2-3 weeks and we'll be airborne. #pghfalconcam
THREE WEEKS OLD! 3 fav things: Looking around, wing exercise, and sleeping!. #pghfalconcam
More flight feathers! The closest chick in this view displays its growing tail feathers
The chick's flight feathers are coming in! First, look along back edge of a stretched wing.
It's been so rain, but now sun! Chicks are fluffy fo now, but those talons hint at what's to come!
