Friends, this beautiful bird is another tundra peregrine falcon, i love the blue accessories. He has flown in from the tundra of the northern regions and will migrate to the tip of south america. A very long journey even for those of us with modern gps. He is going on his instincts and inborn knowledge, for this is his first trip. There are no parents to guide him, just his internal compass. On their first journey, they avoid flying over Lake Superior because the coldness of the lake doesn’t produce the thermals that are critical for gliding. Over Hawk Ridge the thermals lift the birds and below is the view that they enjoy while migrating south along the ridge. we will release this peregrine in tomorrow’s post til Tomorrow MJ
