RFI: Peregrines and Parakeets

9:05 pm

This evening, I observed a Peregrine Falcon bombing/harassing a group of Red-masked Parakeets in my North Park neighborhood near Morley Field. It started my mind working; the parakeets are loud and obvious, and at first blush, they seem like a tempting
shiny object for urban Peregrines. Yet they work in groups, occasionally large groups. I have never lived in a city with parrot and parakeet populations like this, and I would be interested if someone might have a moment to relate their understanding of Peregrine/Psittacid
interactions to me offline to avoid traffic on the listserv. It seems like it might be an interesting topic.
