Full Moon Falcons - March 20, 2011

Well.... the falcons were not actually seen while the full moon was out and about but both they and the moon were equally impressive.

This was taken on Friday evening a day before the moon was full.

The falcons were seen at different locations. The Peregrine on the City Hall Tower in Gloucester this morning.


and the Merlin, perched momentarily across from the Marker Field on the Parker River NWR


a 1st for the spring was a pair of Double-crested Cormorants perched on the pilings in the center of Essex. A shrink wrapped boat made for a very bright back drop.


and lastly, poking out of the recently "defrosted" ground in front of the office in Essex, one of a dozen or so Crocus. Come on Spring!
