Dozing Off

This Juvenile Peregrine Falcon with opaque eye-lids appears to be dozing off. And in fact, I think that is exactly what is happening.  This is the second day after leaving the nest for him, so sitting in the warm sunshine on a cliff face at Yaquina Head, sheltered from the wind, and perhaps tired from all the stress from his new responsibly of flight, it’s easy to imagine it’s just too hard to keep his eyes open.
