p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Peregrine Falcons Compilation - Torrey Pines


After years of seeing incredible imagery of the Torrey Pines Peregrines on this forum and other places, I was able to make two short trips to the cliffs at Torrey Pines for this season. I managed to capture these images over the course of a few days!







Avocet Meal

  NIKON Z 9    NIKKOR Z 600mm f/4 TC VR S lens    840mm    f/7.1    1/6400s    1250 ISO    0.0 EV  







Pelican Attack

Excellent set of images!
It takes some guts to get the food fight shot
You got a lot of great shots, as seen in this post and your prior posts, even though your time at Torrey Pines was limited.
I hope we see you there again next year.

It was great running into you! Canít wait to see your end of season post here, and perhaps Iíll run into you at one of the other Peregrine nests later in the season!

A+ here!

The pelican encounter. Is it a territorial dispute or or is he potentially prey?

Thanks for sharing!

It is a nest defense. The Peregrine cannot carry away the Pelican, however the Pelicans occasionally crash after being hit and drown in the sea or get injured hitting the beach.

Alphonsus, great sequence, you caught the action, your persistence paid off.
Looks like your also enjoying that 600 TC, I'm sure enjoying mine, a game changer.

Great work on all of these. Didn't realize they would attack a big bird like that! I assume the pelican got away.
