Signs of Spring #2 – Return of the Peregrine Falcon

Agawa Rock Pereg cropped

A pair of Peregrine Falcons were observed looking for a nest site in the Agawa Bay area on April 5. The picture is one of the Peregrines.

We also saw a female Peregrine Falcon perched on a dead birch tree near the top of a cliff at Old Woman Bay.

Peregrine Falcons usually return to the park in early April. They will feed on forest birds (like Blue Jays) and gulls (who have returned to the islands they use for nesting). Ducks will not be on the menu until the lake and rivers become ice-free.
