If you noticed in my Peregrine Falcon photographs this week for Wordless Wednesday, there was one showing the Falcon with the following bands: Black A over Green 4. I did some research and found out that this bird (a female), was from a nest at the Verazanno-Narrows Bridge(The Verrazano-Narrows Bridge is a double-decked suspension bridge that connects the boroughs of Staten Island and Brooklyn in New York City) in 2004. Apparently, she was banded on June 1st from a nest of four. The young male that I photographed with her did not have any bands. Both birds looked very healthy and in my observation looked quite happy with each other as they played around while bathing. It was unfortunate that I could not get video capture of this moment due to unnecessary feral primate activities in the area, which eventually drove the birds off. Here are some additional photos of the young male.
