This is the absolute best day in terms of traffic & people for a young Seattle Peregrine to try its first flight. Often by the end of the day they can fly well enough to get up to a safe place. The area around the courthouse has lots of low 1 or 2 story roofs or balconies that would be an attainable safe haven. If you do see one walking down the sidewalk, gently steer them away from the street...they don't understand cars and will walk in front of them. Don't try to pick one up, those inch long talons mean business. One of the three chicks fell out of the nest a week too soon and is currently in PAWS. The remaining fledglings need to be left with their parents, although poor fliers sometimes need an elevator assist back to the roof to rest and try again.
