Seeking and Finding the Peregrine Falcon Nest

Yesterday’s attempt to see it did not disappoint. You can miss the toll gantry on the southbound Thruway ramp from South Nyack if you’re not looking; however, I got a chance to glimpse the Peregrine falcon nest.

Tucked into a right angle of one of the beams it looked small and cute from the road and was partially visible as we drove to Nyack. Westbound traffic allowed me to look up while driving, and lots of space between the cars in front of and behind mine let me look up quickly as we drove back to Westchester.

Maybe Irvwing, who arrived near the end of April, was out exploring. I’m sure one of his parents was photographed by my friend last week.

I’d like to know what you think.
