Peregrine Falcons: Woburn pair

November 15, 2017 in Peregrine Falcon Woburn

_W7I7170-001A beautiful morning with clear skies, bright sun and light winds!  Both adult peregrines continue to be seen most days around the quarry area.  This morning the male was perched at the front edge of the nest ledge with the female nearby.  She departed in pursuit of a passing hawk and then promptly returned, likely after engaging in a little territorial defense.  She returned to a regular perch atop Pinnacle Rock.

_W7I9756-001Made a morning visit to observe the Woburn Peregrines.  A beautiful morning with bright sun, clear skies, temps in low 70’s and calm with no wind.  The male swooped from a perch west of the nest ledge and then landed with prey in talons on a shaded rocky ledge slightly to west and below the nest ledge to enjoy a morning snack!
