peregrine dashes; photo and video

The peregrine falcon was up early chasing breakfast.

He made several extremely fast dashes but I didn’t see him catch anything.

Here he is coming back to a snappy landing at the end of a dash.

His air brakes worked wonderfully well.
At one point the crows tried to take over his roost tree,
but the peregrine abruptly returned and scattered them.
Unlike humans, peregrines like to eat crow…
