One {Patience: preening}


Only saw Patience today. It's hard to be certain which
falcon is there if only the one since size is the obvious
differentiator. But Patience has a whiter chest and her
browns are grayer... fairly sure it was her this AM.

I heard the squawks before she flew into sight and perched.
THey were not the agressive screaches they make when they
strike. Was more a sort of annoyed yap. She settled in and
preened makeing these occasional squawks. Maybe she's pissy
due to molting as her preening pulled a fare number of
feathers free. It be cool to collect a feather or to but
she's doing this 14 stories up so the feathers float off and
gone.
