My Sightings

Date Location Note
Roosevelt WetlandsAt the very end of the pump station trail in a tall pine tree. Very large for a falcon. Identifiable by the the distinct falcon 'tears' under its eyes. I believe this was a juvenile. They are the fastest animal in the world with a top speed of 240 miles per hour, almost 4 times faster than any fish or land animal. I am very happy to see this bird.
