The Peregrines have Fledged!

peregrine fledling profileHello everyone,  Sorry I haven’t posted in a while.  I’ve been out in the field gathering footage for my new web series,  The Nature Nerds.  The first one will be on Vernal Pools with Brandon Abbott and Molly Hale as the guest Nature Nerds!  I’m in the editing process right now but I had to post some of my pictures and video of the Peregrine fledglings at the Calvin Coolidge Bridge (My next Nature Nerds is Falcons of the Connecticut River Valley).  They’re still calling for their parents to feed them and they’re very active at times, flying all over the place, hanging out on the bridge structures, sitting above bicyclists on the bike path bridge.  In colonial times, they were known as duck hawks because of their size but I may have another reason, I got film footage of a fledgling taking a swim in the Connecticut!

Those people of those wheels look awfully tasty...

Those people look awfully tasty…

Maybe I'll just have a robin, those people look too much of a problem...

Nah, maybe I’ll just have a starling for lunch…

About John Body

I live in Western Massachusetts, in the incredibly beautiful Connecticut River Valley. I've been hiking, kayaking, and tracking wildlife throughout the Valley with lots of photos and videos that people may like to see. Whenever I travel I also take my cameras just in case I see great scenery or wildlife. My passion is wildlife conservation so I try to attend wildlife workshops and land preservation events (Habitat, Habitat, Habitat!). When I get a chance, I videotape the experts, they're just so knowledgeable and inspiring. I hope you enjoy my posts.
