“The Peregrine Falcon has made an appearance and I happened to be ready with a telephoto lens,” wrote Jake Sigal.
“The falcon landed on my fire escape [at 106th and West End], at first it flew away, but returned 15 minutes later. It groomed itself for a few minutes while occasionally glancing up at me as I took photos. At one point it was startled by it’s own feather.”
Correction: Jake says it’s actually a falcon. He initially thought that it was a hawk.
