Nice ledge, really shows how "narrow" a young peregrine's world can be on a nestledge ... and if the little guy down the ledge (looking at the difference in plumage development I'd say it's a male) doesn't get name "the Lone Ranger" it will be a pity ...  ;) ;D

I was reading in the raptorresource.org forum that the female was in a pretty significant territorial dispute at the Colonnade building in Bloomington ~ March 1/ 2011 and had many lacerations on her head and a fairly significant injury to one of her feet.

In the video MPR2 brings a snack to Speedy and she takes it to far end of the ledge to eat: http://youtu.be/Sa7TDrctzOU

Looks like she is a survivor.  8)

This is a great webcam! Thanks for the link, rcf. I also went to view the photo gallery and in one photo, I counted over 40 people at the banding of a chick from a past year. :o So, I was wondering, might that be rather distressing for the chick(s), TPC, to have so many people watching in very close proximity? :-\
