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.
