Peregrine Pestered by Kestrel on Disposal Road

1-IMG_9776We were driving down Disposal Road on Friday afternoon, minding our own business, when in the distance we saw a Peregrine Falcon flying over the old Kingsland Landfill.

As you may know, that's a big hangout for American Kestrels these days.

Apparently big falcons and little falcons do not get along, because the kestrel zoomed after the peregrine repeatedly until the larger bird flew off.

At least twice, the Peregrine flew upside-down in some sort of "Top Gun" maneuver.

We thought it was a great early preview of what we kind of raptor action might see on Disposal Road this fall and winter.
