I think I have mentioned several times before that the peregrines begin their mating in December. Well, this is December and “The dew is on the punkin’.” And early this morning the tiercel made his first attempt with her and without much success.
Rejected! Just look at the face she is showing him. I spent the rest of the day waiting for another interlude, but he didn’t return. Probably off sulking somewhere. Well, tomorrow is another day. I hope a lucky day for him.
Happy trails, Bob
P.S. Thanks to Cleve Nash for his early bird schedule.
