These images illustrate how well the colors of an adult Peregrine Falcon match the tones of winter beaches.
When the falcon flew off, I was curious about where it had been perched. Could I see or recognize its footprints?
I walked up to the site and was intrigued that the bird had been perched on a piece of wood partially buried in the sand.
You could see where the falcon's feet had made impressions in the sand. But I'm not sure I could identify these prints in the future.
