Peregrine Falcon, adult

January 9, 2015 in Verizon Cell Tower

In a late afternoon search for the Lawrence Peregrines, and with none in sight around the Clock Tower, cast my gaze to other off season perch locations.  This time of year, the peregrines may frequently be found atop the nearby Verizon Cell Tower on the opposite side of the river and NW from Clock Tower.  While heading north on Parker St (Rt. 114) and going over the bridge, noticed a perched bird on the side of the Verizon Tower building.  Parked nearby and sure enough, one of my long lost friends!  Looked like it just finished a snack and was perched just out of the wind!  What a joy to make this sighting!!
