Here is another update and photo of the Kalamazoo Peregrine Falcon family by Audubon Society of Kalamazoo member Dave Chmielewski.
What a difference a day makes. Yesterday, Sunday 6-29-2014, the light for photography was terrible but the birds were super active. All kinds of action shots (mostly throw-always because of the poor light). Today, Monday 6-30-2014, (well the light was still bad at “O dark thirty” but improved to a very acceptable strong soft light by 9AM). The birds, HOWEVER, were anything but active. I only saw two birds in the 1-1/2 hours I was there. One juvenile (I believe) about 1/4 mile to the south was practicing flying like a teenage boy with a new skateboard – trying out all his new moves. The male is the only other bird that I observed and he sat on the 5th3rd building preening for about twenty minutes. It was like watching paint dry waiting for these birds to show. I got so bored I took one portrait of the male for the records. I’ll see what happens after this storm passes.
