Peregrine falcon
« on: March 03, 2014, 06:55:41 PM »
I'm seeing more and more of these guys in TN. I'm not as good at ID'ing them as some of the other Birds of Prey but I'm pretty sure I ran into several at the park this weekend. I went back to the Bear location in hopes of seeing the Bear again. Instead I kept hearing what sounded like puppies yelping. I knew it was a large bird but the alarm call was strange to me. Then I saw at least three of what I'm 99% sure are peregrine falcons buzzing my location. They were extremely upset with my intrusion. I couldn't understand what the fuss was about. After all, surely they see people all the time in the park. Then about an hour later I stumbled onto why they were so alarmed. This looks like the kill site of a Falcon.There was a trail of feathers.... Most likely a Bobcat got lucky.

Corny as it might sound I feel privileged to be in the presence of such an awesome creature. It's a blessing to see them making a comeback in my lifetime. Now they just need to learn to eat higher up in the safety of the trees.  :o
