Peregrine Falcons

June 22, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

Had a wonderful day visiting a site where peregrine falcons have raised two young birds. They have been monitored by SWT and all photos were taken in the presence of these guys. 

Amazing to watch the female bird go out and hunt while the young just play together. I think she was trying to get them to hunt also, denying them regular food. Every time she would come back without prey they would cry out to her.

The light was quite tricky with so many trees about creating dark shadows with bright pools of light. I like the shot of the adult female with remains of blood on her feathers.
