13 March 2015 – Flight of the Peregrine


13Mar2015_1_Boise-Falcons_Old-Drug-StoreA beautiful day in downtown Boise. I even found this old drug store sign that had originally been on the side of a building. The lettering is almost gone.
Both birds were spotted at the box at about 1156. Then one took off, the one sitting on the ledge in front of the box, and flew east. Then the second peregrine appeared from the deep inside of the box and “chased” after the first one. I wonder if they are preparing a scrape – a space to lay the eggs. Here are some photos Robin and I took of the peregrines and where we go to spot and photograph them. They soon disappeared and did not return before we left the area. Left-Click any of these photos to see them enlarged. Keep Looking Up!

Robin took this of me looking at the peregrine on the ledge in fron of the box. See him? Top floor at the breezeway in the white building.

Both birds are there, but one is deep inside the box and out of sight.

The peregrine that sitting on the ledge in from of the box, took off and flew east past the Wells Fargo Bank building.

Here are some really good flight photographs. Enjoy! They are all of the peregrine that was inside of the box.
