Lawrence Peregrine: male with leg band

December 28, 2016 in Near the Clock Tower

_w7i5917-001Nice looks this morning of the male peregrine falcon under overcast skies as it feasted on pray.  The falcon was perched on the base of one of the triangular pediments.  It took a moment to lift its left leg, showing a silver federal band, suggesting it is the male!  No ability to see what it was tearing apart and feeding upon!
