Subject: [Maine-birds] Gyrfalcon?
I’m at Evergreen Cemetery in Portland. My daughter spotted a large bird of prey sitting in the top of an evergreen. From our vantage point, it appeared nearly white on the breast, some face patterning reminiscent of a peregrine, and I saw a dark wing edge. It flew, of course, out of sight. All I could see between the trees as it flew were long, grayish speckled wings that seemed broad. Could I have seen a Gyrfalcon? Any other candidates? That breast really seemed snowy white. Oh, and my daughter saw its feet and said they were large and fuzzy. (She’s not a birder.)
