Snowy Owl vs Peregrine Falcon

No one gets hurt and the owl is smart, s/he keeps his/her eyes on both birds so s/he doesn't get caught by sneak attack ... great video, wonderful watching the snowy up close and the peregrines are just annoying him in the hopes s/he'll leave ...

Apparently the Weather Network (www.theweathernetwork.com) will shortly have a peregrine video from Edmonton on their website online.  I check and couldn't see anything yet but something to look for if you are visiting TWN.

This was posted on Facebook. That is one bold and fearless pair of pigeons.

This video from CNN shows how falcons are trained to catch drones.

HAPPY WORLD WETLANDS DAY 2017!!

As you all have heard me say in year's gone by, wetlands and peregrines go together like PB & J.  In Canada, more than 600 species of plants and animals make wetlands their home - more than a few of those are favourite menu items for the peregrines.  No wetlands = a lot fewer peregrines, particularly here in Manitoba!

Speaking of food ( ;D ) here for your viewing pleasure are a couple of peregrines hunting shorebirds at a wetland in Washington State - https://youtu.be/y_G_K5TU8cQ  

Be impressed, these birds fly very fast so being able to keep them in-frame is fantastic, keeping them in-frame and in-focus is amazing!  

Enjoy.
