These two have fledged!  ;D 

One was on the Annex building on the west side, the other one was on the southeast corner of the lower roof this morning.

I like family scenes - they happen so rarely.  But best of all, I'm glad to see the "girls" are on another building AND with each other.  First hurdles of fledging seem not to be posing a huge challenge for these two (knock on wood) - long may it continue!!!  ;D

I watched one of these girls fly from the Mts building to the top ledge of the Scotia building after she tried to perch on a window sill on the McKenzie building this morning. We had to lie down after that!   ;D  The other one was preening on the west side of the McKenzie roof.  So they seem to be doing all right so far. :)

Oh, even better than flying between buildings together is flying to higher buildings!!! 
Way to go girls (peregrines and RCF)!

Maybe a bit of a Wow moment!  ;D

Wingo downed a pigeon which ended up on the west side of the McKenzie building in the back lane. The chick followed where the pigeon was but first she flew down from the walkway into the fenced area where the old dock is. She tried to go through the fence to get the pigeon...that didn't work!  ::) She managed to fly up on the fence and down to the lane to get at the injured bird. This chick looked like it had food in it's crop already and she never did eat the pigeon!

When she left she flew up on to the back of my truck and then off to the northeast!
