Peregrine Falcon: Woburn – eating prey

July 13, 2016 in Peregrine Falcon Woburn

_W7I4303-001Had a nice visit to observe the young fledgling this morning.  It was perched high up near the top of the cliff at an elevation of approximately 180 feet.  According to Steve Sherrod, fledgling peregrines assume a range of different postures when eating.  In this case, the fledgling was squatting on a flat ledge and eating prey that had been dropped by the female a short time earlier.  The fledgling was barely visible from below!
