Presidents' Day weekend...

As we continue to observe the antics of the breeding peregrines, this holiday weekend brought two tall ships, the “Lady Washington” and the “Hawaiian Chieftain” into Morro Bay, California. A delightful day in the low 70s with many visitors stopping by to see the tall ships and frequent copulations of our resident pair.

Just to review: Our resident falcons breed here around Christmas and New Years’ holidays in December/January, egg-laying starts in March, chicks hatch around Easter in April, fly by Memorial Day in May and by Labor Day in September, the parents chase them off.

As time passes, Bob will let you know the exact dates for each event this year.
