Checking in on Peregrines

More peregrines! This from the same urban nest box. The male is unbanded, as you can see from the first pic.

Wanted to do a comparison with how quickly chicks "grow up." Pic of chick being held was on May 27 - you can see the b/r o4/U band. Look at the next shot - same bird on June 7! Flight and other feathers already poking out!

And my most favorite things to learn - what are they eating!?!?! Can you guess what the bits are that I found?

They are (in order): Wilson's Snipe, Pied-billed Grebe, and Northern Flicker. Quite a nice menu selection!
