Morningside Nest Break: Part 2

Riverside Peregrines during a prey exchange. Peregrine Prey Transfer Peregrine Prey items found were pigeon, starling, blue jay, flicker, robin and surprisingly this snipe. Dead Snipe Perhaps the best scene of the day was when a quartet of black backed gulls got too close to the scrape. The female tore out after one and plummeted after it. Eventually it caught the gull by the rump and they tumbled for over 100' before the falcon let go. Unfortunately the action happened directly between me and the sun so my camera blew the shots. Was totally awesome none the less.
