More bird photos: Peregrine Falcon

     This is Mrs. Doyle the peregrine falcon. It turns out that birds pant, as seen in the above photo. It was a hot day and hunting is tiring. Her wings are spread out to help cool her down but also to protect her kill (which in this case is a leather pouch). She was hand raised by one of the people who work at the center and as a result see views people as somewhat equals who she has to guard her food against.
