Enjoying the wind


A quick look at an adult Peregrine Falcon off Bodega Head this afternoon.  I'm not sure, but it looks like some new feathers are growing in on the right wing tip.  What do you think?

Great shot of my lifelong favourite bird. That wing does look very ragged so something is going on.

Thanks, David! I'm not sure how common it is for Peregrines to be molting at this time of year, so I was intrigued by the wing pattern.
