Peregrine Falcon, male 6/4 leg band

April 9, 2013 in Peregrines at 250 Canal St.

The male Peregrine Falcon perched on a ledge within the 250 Canal St. complex.  This was a late afternoon observation with the Peregrine overlooking the area where the nest is located in a secure location nearby.  The leg bands provide confirmation of the gender of this Peregrine.  The male has been the more visible of the two as the female is incubating the eggs.
