Fledging Peregrines

An alarmist fledgling cries out as one of the parents cruises by the falcon's favorite perch: the big "G" tower.
If you love birds, and live in Kalamazoo, chances are you've heard about our downtown falcons four (yes, four!) chicks this year. This was their first successful brood, and they've gone airborne! The Gazette has been following their every move, as well as flocks of Audubonites. It's an historic year for Kalamazoo and Peregrine Falcons. 

I've been following the drama from afar (meaning online) but finally made it down to the parking ramp to watch the early antics of fledging, and snap a few shots.

Check out my other sites...

I've been gradually migrating more and more of my photographs over to my website blog and Facebook page. If you're not familiar with these two other sites of mine, definitely check them out. You'll see plenty of wildlife (including urban wildlife) as well as photographs featuring two-leggeds, or more commonly known at humans.

Jewels from the Northwest

Just returned from a photo tour around the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State, and I'm essentially speechless. Here's a sneak-preview jewel from that golden part of the country.
