Peregrine NE corner of New Balance roof

January 17, 2012 in Near the Clock Tower

One adult peregrine was spotted on the NE corner roof top pediment around 3:40 p.m.  It appeared to be just preening and looking around with a clear view below of the Duck bridge and a view of the Merrimack River.  Recently this has been a very regular perch for this pair of Peregrines.  From a distance, you may be able to see the whitewash of excrement coming down the side from the peak of the rooftop pediment.  While watching this one adult, another Peregrine showed up and started squawking on the northern edge of the New Balance roof near the NE corner.  These images were captured while standing on the north side of the Duck Bridge from a distance of about 130 – 140 feet.
