Peregrine atop nearby utility pole

October 8, 2014 in Near the Clock Tower

The peregrines were both seen late this afternoon in flight and perched around the Clock Tower.  While enjoying a short visit, there were numerous sorties after nearby prey and other uninvited local intruders.  As the sun was getting low in the sky, the female with clearly seen leg bands (V/5) came to rest on a favorite utility pole perch along Merrimack St.  The close views were unexpected but very enjoyable!
