Peregrine Falcon: An amazing bird

This majestic bird is a peregrine falcon; a predator which is common in the NWT.

In this case two birds were screeching and flying loops. I suspect our group of travellers had approached its nest. The bird did its best to scare us away. (The display did allow for a quick round of pictures)

Magnificent birds, those predators!

  1. Is the peregrine falcon a migrant bird? Is it the same as the Serengeti peregrine falcon that I know? Or could they be sharing a name as are close family members? Please enlighten. Serengeti is in Tanzania, East Africa.
