Peregrine Falcons [9]

Post by mallardg500 on Wed Jun 11, 2014 3:28 am

Sharing a few images of Peregrine Falcons from Point Reyes CA outing last Saturday Jun 7.  
A seagull was already being ravished by a juvi when we got there so we just missed the big action..  
However, not to totally disappoint us they put up a few side shows as if they know why we were there in the first place, and for that we were grateful.. Smile
Btw, the same pair has been successfully producing 2 -4 offsprings every year and each of them were tagged for tracking purposes. Some of the offsprings from previous year have been seen to come back perhaps to check out their new siblings but they were no longer welcome and chased away by their own parents...  

1. Approaching..
