Peregrine Falcon: Woburn – perched

July 18, 2016 in Peregrine Falcon Woburn

_W7I5065-001Another beautiful sunny morning!  Made a brief stop to observe the peregrine fledgling in Woburn.  It was perched high up at the top of the quarry at an elevation of over 180 feet.  According to noted peregrine falcon author and expert, Steve Sherrod, young peregrine fledglings still spend a large portion of their time perched on surrounding rocks and other nearby locations.  This morning the fledgling was perched upright, overlooking the area below, with both feet down.  This is the normal perched posture that a relaxed falcon assumes.
