9/12/17: Few and far between

That describes the reports of peregrines in the downtown area the last two months.  Falcons were seen near both nest boxes in mid-August, but I’ve had no reports since.  Raptor migration should be beginning and we’ve had a variety follow the Grand River through downtown, including bald eagles, osprey, and falcons.  Typically, it is the male peregrine that finds a good lookout perch to defend his territory.  In the past, that has often been on the top of the Amway Grand tower, but I have yet to see a bird there.  This year’s juvenile should already have left the area on it’s first migration.

As always, your observations of falcons are welcome!
