peregrine falcons on providence biltmore

Our local peregrine falcon pair have been spending a lot of time at the Providence Biltmore Hotel. One falcon is often perched on the ‘E’ of east-facing BILTMORE sign, and the other stands nearby on the ‘B’ of the west-facing sign. When one has food, it happily shares with the other.

    I like the picture with the peregrine and the pigeons. After watching the video and scrolling down a little I found it kind of comical that the words MORE were in focus.

      Yes! Yes! I’ve seen them like that up there. So fun, and so great you were able to capture that in photos.
