Driving along in Skagit County (for those not from this area - is it pronounced like gadget) - something the newscasters around the country should have been told when the bridge on I-5 collapsed into the river last month). Any way - driving along I spotted something in a new mown hay field. A spot - maybe a bird?
It was a bird - let's look closer
Oh a very pretty Perigrine Falcon
Ruffling his feathers
Grooming - the feathers are gorgeous
Look up - way up - on top of that telephone pole
A Bald Eagle - he is watching the falcon too
Falcon doesn't care - has to preen those pretty feathers - look out falcon!
Don't warn him - I'd like to invite him to lunch
Look out eagle - falcon doesn't like being invited to BE lunch
Go away eagle!!!!
Eagle went away - hiding in the tree - middle right - that dark spot in the tree.
Eagle is big - Falcon is fast - he can fly up to 242 mph - now that's fast - and Eagle is hiding from that.
