Peregrine Falcon 10/11/2021


    October is becoming Peregrine month around here.  Since the first of the month I've seen five of them fly by my yard.  The one today offered the best photo-ops by far.  I spotted it low over Lake Michigan a few hundred feet off shore.

   It proceeded to fly almost straight toward me....

...before resuming its southerly trajectory.

   A stiff headwind played a roll in slowing it down enough for me to fire off 40 shots of the world's fastest bird. 

  Since Thursday a female Ruby-throated Hummingbird has been visiting my feeders.
