Point Fermin Juvenile Falcon 2019
According to the locals, the female adult Falcon is a young one and the previous female was nowhere to be found. This year, being a young parent, the nesting season was later than the previous one. This pair only had two fledglings at the beginning of July this year. One of the juveniles landed in a shaded area on the cliff that morning and beginning to preen itself. During the preening, the bird was high enough for the light to reach the bird. I immediately stopped down and exposed to the left, allowing the side light to create this big contrast scene that we truly saw with our eyes.
