two mornings with peregrines

April 4, 2022

The 100 Foot cliffs in San Pedro, CA provide perfect dwellings for nesting Peregrine Falcons. I made the trip to San Pedro from Monterey Hills twice on my most recent trip to Southern California. It’s just about an hour drive to the coast and leaving the house at 5:00 AM pretty much assures an easy drive before the LA traffic heats up. I spent a total of about 8 hours between the two days waiting and hoping for these birds to land on their favorite perch. The total time spent actually photographing the birds was around 30 minutes. The first four images are of the male and the rest are the female.
