Falco peregrinus

Sci: Falco peregrinus, No: Vandrefalk, Eng: Peregrine Falcon, It: Falco pellegrino

Dear All,
The bird of this month is a 'well known character' (byoriginal?) in Bergen. In the winter, it often sits on the top of the tall City Hall and hunts pigeons. My challenge this month was to get a good photo from top of the roof. First attempt, Jan. 15 with camouflage tent, was not successful. I scared it and it didn't return in an hour. However, second attempt, Jan. 22, was much better!
