I heard a squawking sound out on our deck, went to look and there was a young Peregrine falcon perched on the railing. I went to get the camera but it flew off into the neighbor's trees and then across their street. I've only seen a couple over the years and never in town. They have some neat plumage. I wish I could have got a pic.

I love them. There was a news story on a Raleigh NC TV station a few years ago, that showed that there were peregrines living/nesting in downtown high rises. They reported that they lived mostly off pigeons, that live there too. 

Took this pic of a male peregrine that was living at The Carolina Raptor Center outside Charlotte. 
He had lost part of a wing in an accident.

That's a nice picture. I mentioned it to a neighbor yesterday and he said that one has been around...and he's noticed fewer pigeons in the area. Not that there are many around here compared to downtown but I haven't seen any for a while!

Being here at the Port I see falcons often. The cool thing is to see them make a kill. I've seen 3 kills; 2 doves and a robin. The last one I saw happened almost on the hood of my truck. Knocked the dove out of the air and then ran it down on the ground and started eating it until a tug came by and it flew off with the kill to the top of a building.
