Peregrine Falcon: Woburn

May 11, 2016 in Peregrine Falcon Woburn

CF2C8750-001Made a pass by the Peregrine Falcons in Woburn this morning under bright sunshine and blue skies. The incubation process continues with the female on eggs most of the time. Very possible that chicks may hatch in just over a week. Spotted the female (32/BC) on a ledge ripping apart a freshly caught Blue Jay. She then flew off in gentle glide mode, heading in southerly direction, with prey in talons, and landed atop one of the nearby parking lot utility poles. She proceeded to enjoy her breakfast with feathers flying all over the place. Meanwhile, the male remained on incubation duty while the female enjoyed a well deserve break!
