Falcons

A stop in Rockport at Camborne Pond, a.k.a. Pebbly Beach off of Penzance Road found the Peregrine Falcon seen in the two images below sitting on a low telephone pole.


Once a jogger and several cars passed without spooking the falcon I moved a bit closer for these shots. A spectacular adult falcon, very large, un-banded and in great light!


Perched on the weather vane atop the Gloucester City Hall this adult male Peregrine Falcon looks tiny. The early morning light added some nice color to the scene.
