Subject: [NHBirds] Peregrines vs. Red-tail/Nashua
While driving down Temple St. I spotted a Peregrine Falcon tearing up prey
on the top of the former St. Casimir's church Steeple and pulled over for a
look.

Minutes later, a large Red-tailed Hawk swooped in, and the Peregrine, a
big, heavily marked female who's been seen around town lately, flew off
with loud cries.

A male Peregrine--which must have been roosting nearly--flew in and swooped
at the Red-tail, shrieking. Red-tail leaped from the steeple, as the
female Falcon swung around and both Peregrines tackled the Hawk, who flew
off pursued by the female Peregrine.

And the male Peregrine settled onto the steeple-top, and tucked into the
prey.
