Peregrine Falcons on Sunday

Park Avenue Peregrine Falcons, Part II

The Peregrine Falcon pair continue to perch on the buildings around the Waldorf-Astoria on Park Avenue.

On Friday, I saw both of them flying around the Mutual of America building, and saw one perch on the former GE building, which now belongs to Columbia University.  I was only able to get pictures of one of them on the top center of the Mutual of America building.

On Saturday, I went looking for the Peregrines and didn't find them.  Luckily, I ran into Ben Cacace, who showed me one in plain sight on the Mutual of America building.  Later that day, Ben found the pair copulating.  So, there may be little Peregrines on Park Avenue later this spring.
