Dispatch from Phoenix

We're visiting my daughter's family for a week in Phoenix.

I took a walk down Central this morning to try out a Genos Rapid box camera that I recently picked up at a yard sale.  One of the first things I came across was this Peregrine falcon sitting on the sign on the facade of a hotel.

I went back to the room to get my digital which has a good zoom and took quite a few shots.  I've only seen a handfull of Peregrines in the wild, so this was a thrill for me.  Peregrines have been nesting in the city for about fifteen years, but only fledged young for the first time in 2009.
