Peregrine Falcon

We went birding at Baskett Slough National Wildlife Refuge yesterday despite all the wind and rain. While driving through the refuge in the car I spotted this bird on a power pole.  After some checking with the birding guides we concluded that it was a juvenile Peregrine Falcon. I think an adult bird would probably have chosen a different location to ride out the storm. It just so happens that this Peregrine Falcon is the 100th bird to add to my life list on eBird that I started about a month ago. It also ranks me now as 5th among Polk County ebirders.
