Bathing Beauty: A Peregrine Falcon


As a predator at the end of the food chain, the peregrine falcon is always a rare bird


In the days of DDT insecticides, the species was almost wiped out. Happily they are becoming more common.


Heather and Barbara from one of our walking groups had the happy experience of watching a peregrine bathe in Lake Ontario at Col Sam Smith Park. These are some of their photos.

Thank-you Heather and Barbara!
