[TN-Bird] Peregrine in Bellevue

Hello Birders,
While sitting beside a window in the meeting room of the Bellevue Shoney's 
(Hwy 70 at I-40) west of Nashville, Davidson County, I saw a peregrine falcon 
land in a tree across the highway.  It was a brilliant adult, and the sun was 
shining on it so beautifully, it almost made the bird sparkle in the light.  
All 
the peregrine field marks were in view, and I pointed him out to a couple of 
non-birders at my table who sucked in their collective breath in awe.  Maybe 
I'll make birders out of some of those folks yet!!

The bird had been "threatening" the crow that was flying in front of it until 
the peregrine decided to perch in the top of a tree and take a breather.  It 
stayed for several minutes sort of surveying the countryside, then continued 
on its flight to parts unknown.  What a beauty!  I am always impressed when I 
see a peregrine.

Cheers & prayers,

Dee Thompson
Nashville, TN
