Here's Something I Don't See Everyday


I've heard on many occasions that we have falcons living in the City of Buffalo but never saw one first hand...until now. These pictures were taken from the kitchen window at my place of employment which overlooks a garden. It's a Peregrine Falcon (I think) and seems to have been looking for something to eat...glad my pugs weren't out there.

I think the bird pictured is a juvenile/immature Cooper's Hawk. Still a great bird and some great pictures of it.

More info on it at Cornell's site: http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Coopers_Hawk/id/ac

You may be right...thanks for the clarification. And it was impressive seeing it not in a zoo and also in the inner city.
