Mike reports: "Toyed around with a pic of the Jersey City male Peregrine for the holiday… He was banded in 2003 at Riverside Church in Manhattan, and has been at the Jersey City nest since 2006." (Thanks, Mike!)
Full photo of falcon with bands follows….
After the travails of Hurricane Sandy, we are hoping for a calmer 2013 and the opportunity to continue rebuilding our parks and natural areas.
The photo above, by Ron Shields, is sunrise at Kearny Marsh, a wetlands area that will likely never be the same as it was when Ron took this amazing shot.
The natural world is constantly changing, and may we resolve, in 2013, to enjoy and improve what we can when we can.
May the birding and other enriching observations of nature begin.
