I saw a Peregrine Falcon in Peterborough on January 10, 2017 at 3:25 pm. It alighted on the top of a telephone pole at the corner of Downie and Murray Streets. At first I thought it was a Merlin from the shape of the wings; I have seen a number of Merlins in recent years in this area. However, as I got closer, I realized it was noticeably larger.
