Warm Overcast Day Ending In Rain

We had a huge warm up with the temps getting in to the sixties. Then in the early afternoon rain moved in. Back to cold tonight. The eagles were not very active. Did get to see a Peregrine Falcon. Supposed to get down in the single digits tonight. Wacky weather changes prevail. Have a great Sunday…

    Grampy, The Peregrine Falcon is a treat to see (well, all your pix are). Some 20 or 30 years ago when I worked everyday in Chicago, they had Peregrins nesting in the nooks of the buildings in downtown Chicago. They were endangered then. (At least if I remember correctly.) They’d nest in the nooks of the buildings and eat the pigeons that were so numerous at that time. The Peregrins flourished (lots of pigeons), and there were lots of pix in the papers of their nests and young ones. It’s a treat to see this one flying so freely, yet somehow landing on bridge supports (reminiscent of buildings, perhaps?) Love to see it.
    And I’ve taken note of the Cardinals you have posted that are so lovely. MCS

  2. That young eagle sure does like that lamp post!
    I wonder if the falcon knows that pigeons roost under bridges.
    We’ve had crazy weather here too. Almost 50 today and 20 tomorrow.

      New Hampshire Gardener,
      Yes, the juvie eagle does like the lamposts. From there it can see the river and lake to scan for a meal. On the 10th of December I posted a picture of a peregrine with pigeon it had just caught. Not the best picture the light was horrible but caught it just after the falcon caught it. You can see feathers still hanging in the air. Yes, crazy weather 15 tonight high in the 20’s tomorrow.
