A sunny Monday in February #4





The Peregrine continued to pose for the camera on Monday.....................


I have no idea why it was so approachable, usually a pretty shy species..............


I wouldn't like to be a pigeon with those eyes watching me.

It did move. Occasionally.



It even flew sometimes.............


And a portrait................


It perched atop this dead tree for ages..................in fact it stayed there until we left.



I guess if the Gyr had been around the Peregrine would have moved on..............


It preened a bit.................



It flapped its wings a bit too.......................



And it had a scratch..................




A bit disappointing about the lack of Gyr but the Peregrine provided ample compensation.

  1. Wow! Stunning pictures, Stu. Looks great on that dead tree. Much better than the one I see sitting on an aluminumn window frame. Really high-end results, congrats.

    1. Thanks Russell, it was just luck. I've been to this place many many times and usually see nothing except a few gulls and crows.
