Peregrine Falcon

Peregrine Falcon.
 
One of the obvious advantages of visiting and photographing birds of prey in a rehabilitation or discovery center is the opportunity to see birds like a Peregrine Falcon. Peregrines are birds that are usually seen high on cliff faces or zipping by at high rates of speed hunting song birds. This Peregrine was believed to have been injured in a collision with another Peregrine. It is fairly young and may have been in a territorial dispute. Its wing has some nerve damage and will not recover to the point it could hunt successfully in the wild. I have some images that need to be processed of where they fed it a song bird that had died in a collision with a window. Seeing the behavior of the bird with prey was really fascinating.
