Karen Tindall, who works downtown and has been very helpful in keeping the DNR and us informed about the peregrines, had the following report on her observations of the chick released from rehab earlier that day.

“Before I left work last night, the banded juvenile had settled into the ledge on the north side of the 15th floor, and Rebecca joined him for a rest. This morning Rebecca was back at hunting lessons, towing a rock dove with three juveniles in chase. Three in chase is more than usual, so I figure that is a good sign.”
