_w7i2782-001While driving by BU this morning, another perched bird caught my attention, especially with a profile that strongly suggested a peregrine falcon.  The morning was filled bright sunshine and very blue skies.  Was able to pull in and park behind Agganis Arena.  Searched and scanned the 26 story dorm building known as StuVi II for the falcon.  Sure enough, it was high up near the roof line, in the sun and out of the wind.  Enjoyed nice looks and was able to capture a few documenting photos.  Scanned a bit further and was delighted to discover a second peregrine falcon.  This one had bi-colored left leg bands, but the distance was too great to make any positive ID for leg bands.
