Peregrine Falcons: Haverhill pair

March 9, 2017 in Peregrine Falcons Haverhill

_W7I3451-001The Peregrine Falcons in Haverhill have been spending a lot to time in the local downtown area.  They are frequently found on a number of regular rooftop perches with expansive views overlooking the Merrimack River.  A nest box was put in place on the bridge but it remains to be seen if that will find favor with the female when she prepares to lay her eggs for the 2017 breeding season!  Here the unbanded female takes off in flight from one of the rooftops by the railroad bridge.
