Peregrine FledgeWatch in Edmonton

Peregrine Falcon by Gerald Romanchuk

April 22 at 7 PM

Edmonton Nature Club Bird Study

Speaker: Janice Hurlburt

Edmonton has several nesting sites for Peregrine Falcons. Each summer a dedicated group of volunteers set up a tag team approach of watching and, when required, rescuing the young Peregrines as they take their early flights (fledge) at some of these urban sites. From fuzzy chicks, to wobbly fledglings, to stunning flyers these young birds must develop their skills in a high risk urban environment, with their protective parents guiding them through it. Learn about what is involved in the Edmonton FledgeWatch and the often dramatic rescuing of these  extraordinary falcons. Before the talk you are encouraged to watch Return of the Peregrines which tells of the early conservation efforts in Alberta in the 1970's to early 2000's, saving the Peregrines from the brink of extinction in North America.
