Peregrine Falcon pair

May 14, 2013 in Peregrines at 250 Canal St.

The Peregrines have been staying close to the nest and caring for the 4 hatched chicks in a tight window well nest space.  This photos shows a very normal food exchange between the male and female.  The male will secure pray, in this instance a starling, and returnto the female in a perch nearby the nest.  the female then brings the pray to the nest and tears it apart to feed the chicks!
