Tony Angell writes: "I was standing opposite a peregrine falcon's cliffside nest ... the female falcon, carrying prey, flew into a stand of madronas overhead. It was early ... and the hungry youngster had yet to be fed. Seeing the meal she had, the nestling responded with wing flapping and begging calls ... however, the young peregrine wasn't confident enough to fly out. ... There seemed to be a standoff until the adult began to pluck her catch." You can read more in Tony Angell's book, Puget Sound Through an Artist's Eye.
