Peregrine Falcon

Bay Farm Island, Alameda, CA

In the golden light of a late autumn afternoon.
This bird is banded (A-62). Here is an enlargement of the
band on its leg:

Followup: This is a first year female from a nest on a ledge of the
Washington Mutual Tower in Seattle, Washington, 800 miles from here.
An amazing network of birders sprung forward to track it down.

Is that a stuffed full crop or just wind blowing the feathers?
