Ornithology, March 11, 2009

Leaving for my son's First Communion class this evening we saw a Peregrine Falcon(?) briefly perched on top of our building. I thought at first it might have been a Cooper's Hawk but my boy said it looked like a falcon, which I had shown him roosting at the Uptown last year.

We saw it a few minutes later swooping and darting between houses across from school and judging from its flight I think his call may have been right, he usually is.

On the way home from the L, I saw a flock of robins including a few very pregnant females.
