Peregrine Female at nest box

September 24, 2014 in In the Nest Box

Late afternoon midweek visit to Clock Tower provided nice views of both male and female.  They were seen both perched and in flight in stunning late afternoon light.  The female will frequently visit the nest box in the off season.  In this perch moment, she is turned in just the right way to expose her left ankle.  This provides confirmation of her black/green V/5 leg bands and helps us to know that she remains healthy and well.  What a delight to be able to observe these urban dwellers most days this time of year and to see them in a variety of perch locations.
