Peregrin falcon
Photo by Jan Hansen

This morning from my kitchen window, I was greeted by what I believe to be a female Peregrine Falcon. The West Coast Peregrines are one of the fastest creatures in the world, reaching speeds of up to 100 mph.

Spotting one used to be a very rare treat. Then in the 1990’s we were surprised by an active nest built on the Washington Mutual Building in downtown Seattle.

I have become a talons scout.
