When falcons attack

On a personal note…

I don’t live that far from where the falcon nest is at UB…a couple of weeks ago when I came home from work, there was a ton of commotion around my Byrd feeder…a lot of starlings were chirping wildly and there was a some craziness going on in a sizable bush near the feeder…I went to investigate and this peregrine falcon flies out of the bush with some poor bird in its talons.

Don’t know if it was one of the UB falcons, but it was something I had never seen up close and personal.

  1. I’m happy to report that the Terminal falcons did not attack me yesterday when I was there, although I don’t think the chicks have left the nest yet.
