CF2C8841-001What a nice surprise to stop by for a look at the Woburn Peregrines and to find the recently discovered and reported juvenile Peregrine Falcon!!  This young peregrine was nestled in on a rocky ledge.  Morning temps were just below 20 degrees, overcast skies, and light snow.  Here is a photo of the juvenile plumaged Peregrine Falcon banded in 2015 with color band 32/BC, according to Tom French at MassWildlife. This bird was banded by Chris Nadareski on May 29, 2015 at the Water St. eyrie in Manhattan. The bird was sexed as a female. The federal band number is 1947-21569.  This young peregrine was recently photographed in flight by Tom Luongo on Saturday, 01-30-16 in Woburn, MA
