Peregrine Falcon male taking flight after meal

April 10, 2013 in Peregrines at 250 Canal St.

Peregrine Falcon male taking flight after finishing a meal atop the rooftop.  Peregrine male has black over green leg band 6/4 easily seen on the left ankle.  The Peregrine had acpatured avian prey on the rooftop and ripped apart for a meal.  Upon completion of the meal, it carefully wiped it’s bill clean at the edge of the roof and then took flight in easterly direction.  Overcast cloudy day but light was good enough to capture somewhat clear images.
