Peregrine Falcon

I just read an article on Peregrine Falcons and their fluffy babies in the Adirondacks, along with keeping my eye on the Peregrine Falcons in Rochester, and remembered I have some photos of one up close taken at Boyce Thompson Arboretum in Arizona. This bird is being taken care of by the wonderful people at The Wildlife Center at Adobe Mountain. I don’t know the name or the history of this beauty because people were in my way of the informational sign, but I was in awe to be so close to this powerfully beautiful bird:

It would look left, then right, then left, etc. and when it would look at me I didn’t have the camera ready to take its photo. But I like its profile view anyway.

P.S. Sorry I’m not posting regular lately, I’ve got a lot going on this summer!

    Pam, he is beautiful! Your photo makes me want to visit the Raptor Center again. BUT – JUST LIKE YOU – my summer evenings are clogged with stuff to do. Don’t apologize for not blogging much. I’m not blogging much, either. Post without obligation. I would have posted tonight but we had T-storms. I don’t care. I’ll get to another post when I can. Right now, I’m catching up on comments before an early bedtime. Which, by the way, will be very soon!

    Hugs to you,
    Mary

    Peregrines…possibly my favorite raptor.
    (that’s why I use Lucy whenever I can)
    They are so fantastic and beautiful and proud. Thank goodness a lot of people brought them back from the brink.

    Breathtaking – just breathtaking. And – we all get a pass for blogging lapses. It’s summertime. We’ll have all winter to make up for our tardiness :0)

    Amazing clarity in the photos on your blog. You have a real eye for an interesting photo angle and composition. I like your blog and have enjoyed perusing it. You may perhaps want to take a look at mine. It’s fairly new. A humble addition to the cyber bird universe…
