To revive an old thread...

I was extremely lucky this past winter: we had a gyrfalcon visit! It was amazing; I'd never seen one this far south before. The raptors really seem to be making something of a comeback in my area, the last few years.

Last month I was lucky enough to watch a peregrine falcon hunting, as well- we have a couple nesting pairs here. I see them fairly regularly but have never seen one hunt before. I have to admit, I felt a little sorry for the pigeon, but what a thrill! I think it was the male hunting; the pair I see most often has four chicks to feed this year!
