Coastal Peregrine

A short video on a Peregrine Falcon that I found scavenging on a gull carcass in October 2017.  This is the third time I've watched a peregrine scavenge a carcass on the Washington Coast. We normally think about them just snatching ducks and small birds out of the air, but when they can or need to they scavenge - predators and opportunist. 

An encounter with a Coastal Peregrine Falcon on the Washington Coast. More information on peregrines scavenging food on the Washington Coast can be found on the CoastalRaptors.org website.
