Fledging Peregrines

An alarmist fledgling cries out as one of the parents cruises by the falcon's favorite perch: the big "G" tower.
If you love birds, and live in Kalamazoo, chances are you've heard about our downtown falcons four (yes, four!) chicks this year. This was their first successful brood, and they've gone airborne! The Gazette has been following their every move, as well as flocks of Audubonites. It's an historic year for Kalamazoo and Peregrine Falcons. 

I've been following the drama from afar (meaning online) but finally made it down to the parking ramp to watch the early antics of fledging, and snap a few shots.
