Female Peregrine falcon leaves nest after feeding a seagull to three chicks. The male delivered the gull to the female by an in-air delivery. Nest is at the Oregon Coast.
What an awesome picture! I’ve never even heard of this bird. I’m a California native,are these birds a west coast native? Beautifully done!
Glory, Peregrine falcons are found nationwide, often near water. The two places I find them are in Wildlife Refuges and on the Pacific Coast line. They prey on other birds, even those larger than themselves. They are known for their speed when diving – 200 mph!. They nest on rocky cliffs – this one is right next to the visitor center at a location near Newport, OR.
Oops, I did a reply but didn’t use the ‘reply’ feature, so just see my post here.
Glory, I was with Wayne on that trip, you can see my photos here now too. Actually Peregrine Falcons are one of the few birds found world over. We also have Prairie Falcons inland in Eastern Oregon. We’ve been watching this nest for some four or five years now. I think they’ve been active there now some ten years. It’s just a great place to watch them as it’s right over the parking lot of the Visitor’s Center, almost like it was planned that way!
