Subject: [MASSBIRD] Peregrine Falcons; Taunton, MA
Had a nice opportunity to observe a pair of Peregrine Falcons in Taunton, MA on Sunday afternoon. It was partly sunny, with light winds and temps in middle 40's. Given the time of year, this pair is in full breeding cycle mode, and ready for the nesting season. Both falcons were seen in copulation mode, flight mode, and perch mode.

The female has leg bands and here's the scoop:

Band numbers: 1687-01294, and 64/V black over green
Banding date and location: May 20, 2008, NY, Long Island, Nassau Co., East Meadow,

Nassau University Medical Center
Sex: Female
Siblings: two (1 male, 1 female)
