  1. Then I’m pretty sure that’s what I’m seeing up here. We are at the top of a ridge. We see the bird frequently flying above our house.

  2. Yes, Debbi, they are all over. They especially like high cliffs with rocks where they can build a scrape. They think the skyscrapers in New York City are cliffs, LOL!

    • Great photo! Question though: why is the faloncer praying for that? Is that because the bird being caught is too big, or is the bird being caught endangered (or something else)? Obviously I haven’t spent much time around falcons or recognize many birds. But, that’s why I’m here..to learn

  3. I hope this works, Bonnie. I have a question. Are Peregrine falcons all over the US? I’m trying to identify some birds here and I don’t know who’s who or what’s what!
