Peregrine falcons, Torrey Pines

Robert Sommers
 

There are four babies this year. They started to fledge early this week. Only one of the four young birds is still in the nest/cave as of yesterday afternoon. I took photographs with Larry Moskovitz yesterday, including a juvenile which you can see here.
On the negative side, many of the last Torrey Pines near the cliff that were seemingly healthy last year have now died due to the borer beetle infestation.
