Peregrine falcon babies growing up fast to be the fastest

 

UIC’s peregrine falcon chicks, now two weeks old and growing fast, spend the day exploring their ledge on the 28th floor of University Hall.

The chicks are strengthening their legs and developing keen eyesight. When they learn to fly, they will become the fastest animals in the world; in 2005, a diving falcon was clocked at 242 miles per hour.

Watch them live onĀ UIC FalconCam.
