and that is when I spotted the third peregrine.  The female then bolted from The Bleachers to join the melee and by size we realized that the new bird was a female and the battle was on!  The two females dove and hit one another and began flying and fighting their way back toward The Bleachers with Ivy pitching in.

Sorry for the quality...but you must remember that these photos where taken from a long distance away, hand held @ 400mm. This just gives you and idea of what unfolded in mere seconds. Photos have been posted in the Peregrines West-End.

i've given up trying to figure out where the  birds are.  I figure i'll just leave it to the selected few who know where they are.

Soooo - I was able to figure some stuff out,  :-* - and was almost hanging upside down on the bus today, looking out the window hoping to see them - but as usual NOTHING - Sheesh - I haven't even seen P&T in real life yet!  ::)

 ;)  ;)


Saw the falcon again on the way home on top of a letter of the building.

I'm so lucky, I get to see Ivy, his mate, Trey & Princess to and from work...Life can't get any better than this :)

Good morning,

Saw Ivy or mate this morning perched on top of a building on my way to work...couldn't tell as I only saw his/her back side.  What a Beauty!

I have an invested interest in our group of peregrines.   ;)

Both birds were at the B&B last night - a very good sign for things to come!
