A Peregrine Falcon lives in Champlain Park too, when it is not roosting in a tower at Tunney’s Pasture. This photo from 12:45 today shows the endangered species sitting in one the community Heritage oaks feeding on a small bird it had captured, while a black squirrel looks on. Viewed through binoculars I could see the feathers flying as it feasted. A second photo from the fall shows a Perigrine Falcon on a Daniel avenue back railing.

We are blessed with biodiversity in our neighborhood. What have you seen today that shows the natural world in all its haunting beauty?

    Thanks for item.  We are in Westboro Beach and the falcon has been visiting us several times.  We had no idea what kind of bird it was.  Catherine Casserly [Cell etc…]
