Hungry Eyesses...

...need their breakfast!!

The baby Peregrine falcons are growing like lightening, sending busy parents dashing here and there for food, more food and even more food! There is no end to these skyscraper tenants' hunger.

Rat meals would help clean up the city,
but that would require landing,
not the falcon's forte.

A better snack would be
the pesky rats of the air,
the ubiquitous pigeon.

Here is one pigeon
looking an awful lot like a meal.

Dinner is served.

I'm sure the falcon
did not need to use his top speed
(180 mph) to get this guy.

But be quick, they'll be taking off very soon!
