Raptor Wednesday

Atop Green-Wood’s old Chapel.
Atop the large antenna at 40th St. and 5th Avenue.

Photographs taken the same day. There is about a mile distance between these two spots. Is this the same pair? I don’t think so. The pairs both have great fidelity to their territory.

Meanwhile, here’s a male on Governors Island
Two days later on Governors Island, just a hundred yards away, but this one sure looks like a completely different male. Much more heavily spotted, less russet.
And here’s my first Merlin sighting of the season.

    The peregrine is a beautiful bird!
