Falco peregrinusAn all-Peregrine edition: a Working Harbor tour leaving from Manhattan’s Pier 11 gave me an opportunity to walk by 55 Water Street, where four little falcons continue to get their wings. Falco peregrinusSitting on the cam was one of the scrape’s adults.

It did not seem to be banded.
