This one isn't as technically good, but it was taken up on the North Shore on a cliff so it's a little more sentimental/interesting.

Very Nice pics. I saw a pair today,about 10 minutes from my house. Here's a link to another pair,about 45 minutes from me. They hatched out 4 this time around.

Hmmm...I'm not sure...I've got pics from Cedar Riverside, Ford Lock & Dam #1 and Corundum Mine site...I'll check on the website and see if I can find out who they are:) I know I have band numbers for at least one bird, if not two...

Tasha..As ALWAYS...gorgeous pics!! Didn't you post a couple of years ago that one of the adults of the downtown pair near you was a former falconry bird, or something?

Nice Pictures and Birds. Can you tell me with what kind of camera and lense were used to take those shots!!

Great stuff, Tasha. As one who grew up in Minneapolis when the Foshay Tower was the tallest thing on the skyline, it's great to see falcons among all those fancy new skyscrapers (not that the North Shore is anything to sneeze at...). Beautiful photos -- nice work!

Thanks:) There's actually a number of pairs around downtown Mpls/St Paul within blocks of each other. The Cedar Riverside female used to be a falconry bird, but she was killed last year...I think by the female currently at that spot, in fact. If I remember right Jackie said this female is known to have killed at least two other female peregrines.

Thanks:) These were taken with a Canon 1D mk II and a Canon 100-400 f4.5-5.6 IS lens.

Thanks Ron:) This was actually the first time I've been to any of the North Shore sites. Man, is it beautiful up there! Much more aesthetically pleasing than the city sites, if not as convenient:)

Wow -- what a ride. Thanks for the link to the Midwest Peregrine Society, and I got totally sidetracked by the stuff on Bud Tordoff. He was an amazing man -- what a privilege to have known him. I spent a lot of time at the Bell Museum at the U of M when I was a kid (and an older kid, too!) and first met him there. He was so incredibly modest about his involvement in WWII aviation. Among other aerial victories, he shot down a Nazi jet fighter (ME 262) from his P-51 (!), which was named after the hoopoe (greatest scientific name ever for a bird, Upupa epops). I could go on and on, but the photos and the video on the link say it all. Thanks so much!

You're welcome:) He was a really nice guy and is greatly missed. I'm glad I had the chance to meet him a few times banding , though I was never able to spend a great deal of time with him.
