Lawrence Peregrines: male and leg band 6/4

January 21, 2016 in Verizon Cell Tower

CF2C3981-001Patience is often a well rewarded virtue in the birding world.  Observed male peregrine for almost an hour this morning under blue skies, bright sun, winds NW at 15 MPH with gusts to 25 MPH, and wind chill in low teens.  The patience paid off with opportunity to capture photos that allowed later for positive ID by way of the black 6 over green 4 colored leg bands on the leg ankle.  This peregrine in the long standing champion male at the Lawrence nest in the Ayer Mill Clock Tower!
