This gorgeous female peregrine falcon (my apologies…I mistook it for an American Kestrel falcon!!!) was shot at the Canadian Raptor Conservancy in Simcoe, Ontario, Canada in October 2010.

The day was very gray and drizzly but I was still able to get a large bunch of images as the birds seemed quite content to “lay low” with th eeayher so to speak!
