A Hunter

I took this pic earlier in the year on a cold day before we had any leaves out so this Peregrine Falcon has all of its feathers puffed out. The lack of leaves also made hunting a bit easier for it too as it seemed to be very successful at catching its prey.

Great photo of the Falcon!
We have two kinds of hawks here, but I have not seen them as often this year as in years past
Have a great week-end!

How great that you got to see a Peregrine Falcon. They are still an endangered species, so they are really a rare bird.

I love the way birds fluff themselves up when it's cold, aren't they clever 😀 super shot of this powerful predator Pat.
