Diamante Seen Hunting at Gallagher Beach, Buffalo, NY! 1/7/15

Well, you know we love to hear news about our Rochester falcons, especially when awesome pictures are available!

Jerry Anderson posted a picture of a Peregrine Falcon he had watched hunting at Gallagher Beach (Buffalo, NY) on the Buffalo-Niagara Rare Bird Alert. He reported the following:

“This is one of the Peregrine Falcons I regularly photograph at Gallagher beach. There is usually a pair.”

Gallagher Beach is not that far from Central Terminal, where Diamante and Gleig nest. It would be interesting to know if Gleig is the 2nd falcon that Jerry has been seeing.

Jerry kindly gave us permission to post his pictures of Diamante. We knew you would all love to see him!

    I saw this! Good he could be identified! I keep hoping someday we will hear something of the juvies from 2014. Being the first babies I saw on camera grow up, they will always have a special place in my heart <3

    Great photos!

    That’s amazing! I always assumed that his hunting territory was downtown. You really have to like creatures who hang out on the beach during January in Buffalo!

    He is just gorgeous!!!
    Thank you for sharing him!

    So nice to hear (and see) happy news! He’s a beautiful boy.

    I was thrilled to see these pictures of Diamante. He looks a lot like his momma, Mariah. <3

    Carol, I was thinking the same thing looking at him!!! So beautiful! I have to agree with Paul. That bird must have one heck of a constitution to be on the beach in Buffalo in January!! He does come from great parents though.

    And he is Billie’s dad.

    So glad Diamant√© has been ID’d here! Now, I hope the second PEFA can be ID’d as Geig!

    Me too Sage! It would be so nice if they were hanging out together. :-)
