Another successful peregrine falcon nesting on Columbia-Wrightsville Bridge

 

→ It’s triplets! Another successful peregrine falcon nesting on Columbia-Wrightsville Bridge – LancasterOnline

The article predicts that the young falcons could make their first flights within the week. My only questions: What happens if, for whatever reason, their first attempt fails? Do they plunge to their deaths into the swirling, muddy currents of the Susquehanna? Does their mother watch over them as they leap from the bridge? Or do they tend to nail it on the first try because they were born to fly?
