A Pair of Peregrines!!

The fields have been mown in Valley Forge and the raptors are everywhere looking for all the little critters who have suddenly been uncovered.  It was such a thrill to see these two Peregrine Falcons perched in a big old dead tree in the middle of the field.  And they stayed long enough to get a picture.

Valley Forge National Park in October

Bales dot the newly mowed fields.  Makes it so much easier to walk!

When I got to the parking lot at Pauling's Farm in Valley Forge I spotted the red-tailed hawk in the  field.  He had a little critter in his talons.  He spotted me too and flew up to a branch in a nearby tree.  I quickly moved over to get a shot as he turned around and gave me the evil eye.  Oh such expression! (Click on him to really see that expression.)
