Peregrine's Breakfast

Peregrine Falcon with tern, note the feathers flying in the upper left.

Now we can see its face

Flying with its prey

Four wings.

We saw a distant bird on the Osprey's usual perch and began to see feather's flying from that direction. We thought, wait a minute, Ospreys don't eat things with feathers..... that's no Osprey! We cautiuosly stepped closer and saw that it was a Peregrine Falcon with its breakfast, a tern!

Photos were taken at the Sanibel Lighthouse park this morning.

The one day I don't go to the Lighthouse and the Peregrine Falcon shows up. Great pictures!
