No red tape on right leg band so that would be Lucius ... Lucius is presumably the younger of the two - at banding he was just a bit more fuzzy than his brother.  Interestingly, Lucius was the one who slid/slipped his way off the corner of the nestbox onto the ledge first.  He was the one who was sitting on the edge of the new Police HQ a few days ago which is how we spotted the boys - Pericles was tucked behind a communications unit for most of our visit - if it hadn't been for Lucius on the railing, we'd have had to be very lucky to catch sight of Pericles!

I wasn't sure which one I was seeing but glad they were both spotted.  :)

Thanks RCF for catching this encounter ... it was the only time any of the peregrines turned up on the west-side cams yesterday!

"Somebirdie" is sitting on the edge of the nest box and has been there awhile.

Earlier this morning I happened to look and an adult had been in the nest box briefly.  Then not much later a chick flew in with a small bird. I wasn't sure at first but the way it was jumping and stomping around I figured it was one of the chicks.   :)

Thanks for the video, RCF. 
It's very nice to see action at the nest box.
