“Doris” landing…

Photo by Steve Medway
We would like to share with you a photograph from a visitor to “the Rock” who was birding around the beautiful Central Coast and happened upon “Doris,” the migrating female peregrine falcon, home unknown. She winters here from October to March in a cypress tree behind Back Bay Inn at Baywood Park, California. This has been her fourth year to winter here. She is called “Doris” because she frequently perches in a eucalyptus tree near the corner of Doris and Mitchell Streets.
Thanks, Steve.
