Portrait of a young peregrine, by Brian Herman.
And, unrelated to this photo, news of the Westinghouse Bridge peregrines:
Beth Fife and Doug Dunkerley banded three male chicks at the Westinghouse Bridge yesterday. The bridge is very high and it was very windy. As Beth wrote, she and Doug "Held on with our lives!!!!!!!! "
The mother peregrine, "Val" ("Storm" from Canton, Ohio, 2005), was present. The father peregrine stayed away. Neither bird was a problem compared to the scary winds on such a high structure.
