Help with a raptor

Recommended Posts

I got these pics today in Central New jersey, along the Raritan River. I saw a peregrine falcon later.. are these pics also of the peregrine falcon? Or is this something else. Any help would be greatly appreciated. The last pic was the falcon, along the water... I'm not sure what its doing... is it eating a rock? Maybe that's shellfish?

Peregrines eat rocks to get rid of Fatty buildup in their crops, Much like some birds eat dirt and sand so they can digest grains.. The peregrine will eventually hock up the rock coated with fat... and now you know the rest of the story...
