Yup! A Peregrine. A BOP I never laid eyes on when I lived in NYC.

Hello,

There is a nesting pair on the New York Hospital, Cornell University building on East 72nd St. There was a pair at 55 Water Street. some years back, I saw a pair on a building across the street from me. They have large territories.

Happy bird watching,
Arthur :hi:
