Peregrine Falcon back under the Causeway x I-10 watertower
At 6:00 pm this evening as I was westbound on the I-10 passing Causeway, it occurred to me to glance beneath the water tower to see if a Peregrine had yet returned from the north to use the site.
There it was! Hopefully in to spend the winter.
The bird was perched on a horizontal cable on the perimeter of the tower (the first encircling cable below the water tank itself), on the southeast side.
Last year this spot produced multiple Peregrine sightings for me, but was usually empty- a bird was present probably only 1/20 of the times I looked while driving past.
