Peregrine Falcon: Woburn adult female

While on the way home, made a short stop to observe the Woburn Peregrine Falcons.  One of the regular peregrine watchers, Jill, was just departing.  She had a nice chance to watch the adult female as well as the 2016 hatch year fledgling.  They had both departed, prompting Jill to do the same.  Minutes later, […]

Lawrence Peregrine: the morning ledge!

One of the favorite morning perches is on a ledge above the west face of the Clock Tower.  A cool spot away from direct sun and rising temps.  Well hidden and easy for takeoff in hot pursuit!

    Hi, Craig! This site is spectacular! I am working with the 21 st Century program at the Wetherbee School doing a river study of the Merrimack. We took our students on their first barge ride yesterday up river and saw a red tail chasing a great blue heron, many hawks, geese, mallards, and other birds. A rainbow on the way back. I had no idea there were kestrels in the area, nor did I know of the peregrines. My brother ( Craig, also!) has a live video feed of a nest at the top of the Marriott in Boston. I’m wondering if you had time to come share your knowledge with our 3 rd and
    4 th graders at the Wetherbee some day after school? If not, I’ll have them blog you on this site. Btw. I live in a lake in Tyngsboro and witnesses a pair if swans harassing some Canada geese this morning. Can they move! I could go on and on about our wildlife, but that’s for another day. Can’t wait to visit the rookery in NA. Thanks again for your site. Kate Oliver
