Howdy All,

While looking for peregrines near one of their nesting sites I was able
to see a pretty cool assortment of raptors.

On a high tension tower near their nesting site two young peregrines
were perched. A third, one of the adults, flew up carrying prey to give
to the young.

Meanwhile, on the next tower over a first year all dark bald eagle was
hopping around on the tower like it was a jungle gym. He or she hopped
down a slanted beam to get to the next lower level. This bird had been
holding its wings open to dry them off a little from an earlier
rainstorm.


Happy birding.
