Wild Chatham Notebook: Migrations

October 1, 2011

A visit to South Beach to check on the latest migrating shorebird populations was blessed by the appearance of a pair of young Peregrine Falcons who sent the population of dunlins, red knots, black bellied plovers and semipalmated plovers into very nervous aerial behavior. Wonderful to watch these magnificent raptors in action. Watching hundreds of birds erupt into flight in an instant as a falcon swoops in is truly breathtaking.
