I get the privilege of having a pair of mating Peregrine Falcons as neighbours. They live just above my balcony and often frequently sit on my balcony itself. I've contacted the Canadian Peregrine Foundation with the band colours of the male (Whos name is Typhoon), and the female who is unbranded (now officially named Falco). Typhoon has a history with humans after falling as a fledgling and going to the vet, so he avoids me like I'm going to stuff him into a crate. However, Falco will let me get exceptionally close to her for some incredible portraits!

Thanks for your kind words! It's brought some very interesting events, including one day their "dinner" (a pigeon) escaping into my room! Typhoon was calling out to Falco up above him to come down and help him get dinner!
