Observations

    Details: A very light-colored one in the dead Torrey Pine on Albion near Dupont

  2. Number observed: 11
  3. Number observed: 1
  4. Number observed: 1

    Details: At the very top of a very tall (70-80') tree (some sort of pine probably) behind 3535 Via Flores. I watched it for more than 15 minutes. Spotted it first from Silvergate Ave. after hearing an odd call I didn't recognize. I could not ID it from Silvergate; I saw only a black cap, large bright white patch below the cap, and what appeared to be a very small bill. I thought it might have been eating something, as it dipped its head out of sight several times. With better light and position at the end of Via Flores, I saw the Peregrine face pattern clearly. As it moved and preened a little, I saw the size of the bird and the end of the tail: a dark area, then a very narrow white terminal edge. Although Peregrines are often seen at Cabrillo National Monument and Fort Rosecrans to the south and at the San Diego River to the north, we rarely see them in or over the residential neighborhood. (I have one fly-over on our yard list from 2006.) Checking field guides at home, I see that the very large white face patch suggests the tundrius subspecies; I don't know if they are ever seen here.
