Bklink: Coney Falcons

Forget redoing the new lighting at the Parachute Jump or returning it to use as a ride. It's already a favorite spot for peregrine falcons. "The unused steel tower is a favorite perch for the local peregrines...it was during my first or second game that I discovered the raptor's choice perch. Our seats were along the first base line, in line with the tower. I noticed one, then two, then several feathers fluttering passed. The source was from the top of the tower. A Peregrine Falcon had just caught a pigeon and was plucking it from its perch on the parachute ride. It was a nice diversion during a slow inning."--The City Birder
