On Sunday at lunchtime I was reading at the kitchen table when my attention was suddenly drawn to an explosion of feathers outside my window. I had missed the hit (alas!!) but I saw a peregrine flapping away with its prize, heading toward the Cathedral of Learning. Even if I’d had a camera I would have missed the shot. It happened that fast!
The feathers drifted slowly to the ground. Pigeon feathers.
Someone had pigeon for lunch.

p.s. As partial compensation I saw a merlin at Schenley Park’s golf course at 2:42pm in a setting like this.
