This is one of a pair of Peregrine falcons who are nesting in the Burlington area as part of the recovery program. These guys were a long ways away. And l used my 500 mm zoom lens and still cropped. No tripod used so not the greatest. But proof that they are coming back. And was amazing to see them in the nest and hunting.l believe this was the female,she went into the nest afterwards and you could just see her head pop up once in a while. This is a nesting platform built for them and to see them in it and in the wild was wonderful. We can make a difference. The volunteers who help out this program are very dedicated people.
These peregrine falcons have had an issue enabling them from being wild any more. They are used to educate people.
They are a truly beautiful bird and can fly in speeds of around l believe 200 mile per hour when in pursuit. It is incredible to see and very hard to photograph. l watched the ones above and it was hard with the naked eye to keep up. Amazing!
Does not mind his photo being taken at all. A great program to educate us on the falcon.
