Amateur photographer and dedicated falcon watcher Kay Gunn closely followed
the peregrines at 101 Hudson Street in Jersey City during the 2008 season.
In the series of photos below Kay captured a sequence of events which
gives us a window on the family dynamics of these wild birds.
The photos tell the story of the the male coming in with prey, the
reaction of the juvenile, and then the male moving away and continuing
to feed. Perhaps it is away of encouraging the young bird to hunt
on its own and provide for itself.
This bit of falcon interaction took place atop 350 Warren Street
on July 12, 2008. Clicking on each image will open a larger version.
