Yes, I most certainly attributed this movement to the approaching storm.
However, it appears that this Fall may be a good one for falcons, as I've
already had multiple Peregrines (one over our house on 2 September and SIX
on my Piping Plover survey this past Wednesday). Speaking of the
Peregrines on that survey, I had one perched on a GPS tower along Elmer's
Island East with an Osprey perched directly above it. As I approached, the
Peregrine flew out about ten meters and then returned and perched RIGHT
NEXT TO the Osprey!!!
If that wasn't weird enough, towards the end of the survey, I had three
Ospreys sitting on the ground (mudflat) with ANOTHER Peregrine!!! -jz
