Peregrine falcon on Front Street

Received a message in December that a peregrine falcon has been spending a lot of time around Open Square.

On a weekend morning in early January I took a spin through my old neighborhood on my way to run an errand. It didn’t take long to find the falcon, feasting on a pigeon on top of a building on Front Street.

I didn’t have my ideal photo equipment in my truck. But, I did have a camera body and a 200mm lens — with some significant cropping, that was good enough to document the sighting.

    Great shots, Greg!
    I have to tell you I have seen my first TWO in-person bald eagles in person right here in Springfield in the past three months! The first on South Branch Parkway next to Dan Baker Cove in mid-October and the second flying over my work on the corner of St. James Ave. and St. James Blvd. Just amazing!
