Peregrine Falcon: Woburn – female with prey

July 6, 2016 in Peregrine Falcon Woburn

_W7I2696-001Met up with John Harrison this morning under bright sun and blue skies to observe the Peregrine Falcons in Woburn. The female had captured prey and rested upon a utility pole on other side of parking lot. She rested but did not eat prey in her talons. She then moved off to a rock outcropping nearby, but, out of view of the chick. The chick flapped quite a bit and then laid down out of sight in nest ledge. The male flew a few loops and then perched to west of nest ledge at roughly same level.
