A Good Day Afield

It was a good day afield. Warm, cloudy in the morning with a bit of sunshine in the afternoon. Watching eagles around the nest early. A trio of Blue Winged Teal winging across the sky. Then caught a pair of Peregrine Falcons mating to end the day. A good sign that there may be young falcons to watch again this spring…

  1. I’ve never seen baby falcons on any of the blogs I read so yours would be a first.
    You got some great shots of them!

      New Hampshire Gardener,
      Don’t know if the falcons will nest where we can see it. Never could spot the nest. Even so I hope they raise them in the area again. It was so fun watching them teach the young ones. First time I have observed them mating. The state avian biologist wanted me to show them where the falcons were at this location. They did not know. When I showed her the female she said it is DUMPY, meaning she thought it would lay an egg today or tonight. I did notice how it looked sort of different today. Plump, the feathers fanned out in front around the abdomen. She perched in one spot for five and a half hours. I missed when she flew off to see where she went. That is how it goes many times in observing wildlife. These falcons if you miss them taking off they are so fast they can be out of sight in no time…
