Christmas Peregrine Falcon at Sanibel Lighthouse




Christmas Peregrine Falcon, adult of the anatum subspecies, at Sanibel Lighthouse this morning. There were lots of birders, photographers, tourists, an occasional appearance of a Razorbill, lots of Red-breasted Mergansers, and this Peregrine, who was chasing terns and looking for its Christmas present. (Photos taken with my Canon SX 40 HS from quite a distance from 100 to 195% digital zoom).
Merry Christmas everyone!

It was great to finally meet you both. I hope to have the opportunity again in the future. The bird observations with Hemant Kishan were indeed excellent this morning at the Sanibel Pier. After observation of the Razorbill, a sighting of the Horned Grebe would have made the morning exceptional.

Merry Christmas to both of you. Nice shots of the Peregrine!
