Pitt Peregrine Falcon

In 2014 The National Aviary installed a wonderful new high definition camera at this nest site!

Peregrines have nested at the University of Pittsburgh's Cathedral of Learning for 12 years.  Dorothy began nesting here in 2002 with her first mate, Erie. Her current mate, E2, arrived in the fall of 2007 when Erie disappeared. Dorothy fledged 22 chicks in seven years with Erie and 20 chicks since 2008 with E2.
