Peregrine adult female….up close and personal!

June 9, 2013 in Near the Clock Tower

Had a dazzling encounter with the female Peregrine while watching her perched on the Clock Tower.  She took off in a steep dive in pursuit of a group of starlings located not far from my distant rooftop viewing location.  She seemed to chase the starlings for a while and then landed nearby.  She squawked on and off and then departed.  It was an unexpected and exciting show so close!!
