That is a lovely young Peregrine. We have a few that live around Chattanooga- one pair nested downtown on the ledge of an old building, and another pair nested on the old tower of a train bridge just below Chickamauga Dam. Most people in the area have no idea we have such an amazing creature around, much less how to recognize them.

I worked in one of the old stone buildings in downtown for many years, and would often go up to the roof to eat lunch and enjoy the view and breeze. One day as I climbed up the last step there was a beautiful adult not five feet in front of me, sitting on a vent pipe. We both froze and stared the other in the eye for about ten seconds before the stunning bird flew away.

It made my year!
