Taking A Bath

Published by at 7:00 am under Peregrines

I often see robins and starlings take baths but I’ve never seen a peregrine do so.

Meredith Lombard monitors the peregrines who nest at the Route 462 bridge over the Susquehanna near Lancaster, PA.  Early this month she observed one of them bathing in the river.  Fortunately she had her camera and scope ready.  Unfortunately it was windy, but it was well worth recording.

This video is a window on the lives of peregrine falcons.

    I bet they go to the Mon River, maybe Duck Hollow

    Last year we saw the juvies at Tarentum bathing in the Allegheny. Must be the proximity to rivers that they can’t resist :-)
