DESCRIPTION: Wednesday afternoon at the Long Marine Center in Santa Cruz. The young peregrines have been flying now for two and a half weeks, spending less and less time at the center. They are still coming back to get a quail takeout from the hack box. But they grab and go. I was only able to get two shots off before they left. This one the falcon is approaching the camera. Time 4pm, Lens used 500mm and 1.4 teleconverter on Canon 30D. Image cropped about 60%. For earlier views of this falcon and siblings, see the page for March 17, 2007.
