Since October I have had three posts about our strange visitors. You can reminisce here, here, and here.

We spotted this falcon just sitting in one of our trees in the backyard. In a tree right next to this one, we have a squirrels nest. It was quite funny watching the squirrels peeking out of there nest every few minutes to see if the falcon had left. 

The falcon stayed for awhile, I guess he was taking an afternoon siesta! 
We figured it was a Peregrine falcon that flew to our yard from downtown for a little "country" break from the city (even though we live in the city limits).

Here I've zoomed in closer! It does look like a Peregrine falcon.
