Read Thread: Peregrine Falcon Sighting!
You are so lucky, Pete!!! I've seen the ones that hang out in downtown Worcester. They really cut down on the pigeon population there. ;^)
Hey! You didn't mention that I was with you and that it was the first time either if us has seen a falcon!! (Which was super fun for me, not just b/c of seeing the falcon, but also to be with Pete--a knowledgable bird guy--for his first time spotting one!!) :-)
We would be "Me and my favorite treehugger", out for a hike on a GORGEOUS New England fall day!
YUP - First time ever! It was actually the different call which I heard that first peaked my interest. I'm glad we had binoculars in the BOTH backpacks, and we were lucky that it stayed perched for so long that we could get a great ID on it. I'm THRILLED that you were there with me to see it!!! ;o)
Ooooh, I know where that is!
There was one that lived in the empty mill building where I used to live. Would see it's "left overs" (pile of feathers) every once in a while.
