Good to hear the Prairie Falcon is still around. Hope this one sticks around better than the last two in recent memory did.
I saw a/the Gyrfalcon yesterday at the intersection of Chilliwack River Road and Bailey Road. I was waiting at the stop sign when I saw a heavy looking falcon flying towards me. I figured if that's not a Gyrfalcon...It flew over me and had good enough looks to see it was a Gyrfalcon but couldnt say if it was or was not an escaped bird (often this species, or hybrids with this species is kept by falconers) considering I was not in a situation to get a better look. Nice birds! Amazing the power they portray just by flying past.
