~Central Terminal Peregrine Pair~

The CT pair are doing their thing, the male perched high on a ledge corner and Stella even higher before she flew off, circled around, soaring high, then came back landing on the perch. Beautiful!

~Peregrines of the Buffalo area~

My friend Jacquie Walters created this slide show/video and included it in a Christmas card with a Peregrine falcon she drew herself!  Thank you, Jacquie!

~Staying warm in ten-degree weather~

Top of the tower is a favorite perch lately at UB with temperatures dropping well below freezing.

~featuring: Central Terminal!

As you can see, the Peregrines were all over CT today!

Roger and I first stopped at UB but the birds weren't home. Then on to CT, downtown and the cement elevators, but no luck there either. Back at CT and both pefas were there! I texted friends from Rochester who were also here looking for the Peregrines. Joyce, Carol, MAK, KathyO and Dana were at UB watching BB but hurried right over to CT. The tiercel was really showing off for Stella, flying circles around the tower and sometimes flying together. We don't know where Stash is this winter but he's in for a surprise when he returns. We're all wondering what Stella's reaction will be.

News from Canada: Frightful, banded at CT this year, who was rescued with wing injuries will be released next spring, according to the Owl Foundation, as he is not yet well-enough healed.

If you are on Facebook, our Peregrines have their own page: ~Peregrine Place on Facebook~ where each Peregrine site in the Buffalo area will have its own Photo Album.

~Sun shines on the UB Peregrines today~

The Peregrines on MacKay tower fluffed up against the twenty degree temperatures and seemed quite content surveying their domain under the clear blue skies.



Two pefas also seen today at Central Terminal

~Snowy Day at Peregrine Place~

We got a few shots in between the snow and smoke hiding our bird. We couldn't see the bands but think it was BB hunkered down and trying to stay warm in the tower's heat. It must be difficult to find prey on a day like this.

~Four Peregrines Today~

It was a crisp and partially sunny day,  so we checked out UB and CT and were lucky enough to find all four peregrines flying around their towers.

BB was flying around with a male today!  The last few visits we made to UB, she was alone.

Central Terminal
At CT, both birds were flying in circles around the tower, landing on ledges and the nestbox perch
