Peregrine Falcon female with Bluejay

April 29, 2013 in Peregrines at 250 Canal St.

The activityaround the Peregrine falcon nest site continues in fits and starts with bursts of acttion and long periods of quiet!  Upon arrival this morning, the male was perched in beautiful morning sun against a sapphire blue sky.  Out of nowhere the female appears and circles one of the buildings and out of fisght.  She returns a few minutes later with pray in talon and zooms up to a perch ledge to rip apart a bluejay.  Quite a show to watch the systematic feeding frenzy.
