Boh and Barb, the pair of peregrine falcons who nest on a ledge of Baltimore's Transamerica tower, welcomed their first egg of the season on the first day of spring. The Chesapeake Conservancy has been broadcasting their nest live online since 2015.
Baltimore Bird Club members have been following the development of three fledgling falcons, some of whom wrote on Facebook last week that the fledglings appear to be making small solo flights but are still being fed by the parents.
They often nest on skyscrapers, cliffs and other tall natural or man made structures. Peregrines are common along coasts where they have access to many shorebirds, ducks and pigeons for feeding, according to the conservancy.
The organization also streams webcam footage of some peregrine falcons — named Boh and Barb — perching on the 33rd floor of the Transamerica skyscraper downtown.
