    Well I'm over the moon this weekend as my birding friend and I got pics of this wonderful juvenile Peregrine Falcon. My friend Chris is quite a good birder and spotted this bird in town a few time over the last several months and it was spotted again on the Christmas Bird Count on the top of a...

    Just set my camera to take pics of butterfilies on a hillside when a kestrel flew by. Just as I looked up this peregrine appeared and tried to grab the kestrel.

    This is the male Peregrine hanging around because his mate is eating her Christmas week sushi--he thinks he might get some leftovers. Instead he got "coal in his stocking." He does have a full crop though; he obviously already had breakfast.

    I have several thousand images of peregrines ...many that are crap but I am not emotionally resiliant to get rid of images of the Manchester birds. I have a handful of fairly good ones. They are extremely difficult to photograph well in an urban setting. This is probably my favourite. It is the...

    In case you wondered if a Falcon changes shape in order to achieve maximum speed check out this stoop sequence. The Red-tail didn't even have time to get his "gear" up.
