I think the peregrine that was here has migrated.  I haven't seen one since Sept 17th.

We checked out here today and there is still one peregrine hanging out on one of the stacks.  :)

I’ve been wondering if anyone is still around (suppose she is laying claim to this location).

Thank you for the update RCF. :)



Checked out here yesterday.  One peregrine was perched on the catwalk railing on the south stack and looked to have a full crop. There are lots of gulls out in this area so I'm thinking that may have been it's lunch.  ;D

I have only been out here a few times lately because of the flooding. Today there was one falcon perched on the south stack and it had a very full crop. It looks like the same birdie I have been seeing all season.

Been there all season is a hopeful sign for next season ... now if we could just get another bird (one who's old enough to understand what goes where and why) to hang around with him/her next year!!

Had a look back at the photos you posted RCF - the bird seems large enough to be a female ... what's your assessment?  A female sticking to this location might be even more hopeful ....

We seem to think it's female and it was a lot easier to tell when there were two of them out here, so I just don't know.   :-\

First estimations are more often right, so we'll go with it is a female until something alerts us to the contrary ... it looked like a female to me sitting there on the rail so I think you are right!

Still only seeing the one falcon out here. We didn't see one for four days but saw one Friday and again today. The one we saw today was on the lower catwalk on the south stack doing a bit of preening and napping.

Yes, it's always good to have some fun.  ;D   I checked out here today and saw no birdies.
