- April 15. The first Peregrine was observed today by Elli Jilek.
- April 16. Bill Wilson observed two Peregrines calling to each other.
- April 17. A Peregrine was observed on the Craigie Hall nest ledge.
- April 24.Three peregrines were around the Library Tower and Craigie Hall at 5:30pm. From size it appeared there were two males chasing each other and a female sitting on the Library Tower. One male would land on the nest ledge and squawk while the other made sweeping passes past the nest ledge. The two males also chased each other in the air. At one point the two came at each other feet first in the air. They locked
talons and seemed unable to let go again. Flapping wildly they spun in a cicle and fluttered/fell to the top of Craigie Hall over the nest ledge. The two were then seen lying on the roof, struggling to free themselves. I went up to the roof with a Campus Security officer. When he put his head up over the edge of the roof, the birds flapped and half fell into a wooden lattice at the edge of the roof. I went around that side, and when the birds saw me they flapped some more and somehow came free. They each flew off, flying okay, although one may have drooped one leg. (E. Tull)
