I here they taste like chicken...photographers that is....
We were woken up last week by some strange sound I had never heard before and it took us a while to figure out what it was. When we open the windo there was one of these Falcons attached to our screen by its talons (which were huge, actually the entire bird was huge).We figured it was one of the babys learning to fly. Was very surreal! Not something that normally happens in a city.
It looks like they use the Uptown as camouflage!
there are some really fantastic photographs of the falcons here!! great job jerry – thanks for sharing with us. they sure do love snacking on pigeons don't they! i've seen the remnants of these snacks around uptown frequently this season.
The pigeon population in Uptown has dropped dramatically in the years these birds have flown are skies.I salute them!
pigeons are really tasty, a little olive oil with some seasoning....mmmmmm....cheap meal. They are a little quick though, tough to catch.
More Uptown Theater news and an event.
Oh that is beautiful. Thanks to the photog and to you for sharing the pic.
