I heard there were Peregrine Falcons nesting under the Marion Street Bridge in Salem. I heard this earlier this year, I think. This did not stop me from insisting, yesterday, that we stop just south of Cannon Beach at Cape Meares to see the Peregrine Falcons that nest on the cliffs there. I still had not seen this species, and it was troubling me. We did not make it to Cape Meares for reasons I will not discuss here.
The next day, I remembered hearing that there were Peregrine Falcons nesting under the Marion Street Bridge in Salem. This is less than 2 miles from my house. I went over and saw one of the falcons almost immediately, under the bridge. I easily could have gotten this species months ago.
