Peregrine Falcon

Peregrine Falcons are not often reported from along the road system (where they are mainly seen during migration), but in some years they have been known to nest along the sea cliffs of the outer sound. St. Lazaria has at times been a host for such nesting falcons, and on a trip there in late May, we got to see one checking out a potential nest site. I don’t think there ended up being a nest on St. Lazaria this year, but we were treated to a nice overhead flyby and some flight acrobatics as it gave chasing to a passing eagle.
