And so I went down to the Casco Bay bridge where I have seen peregrines before as I was driving across. It wasn't long before I found what I had come for. I watched this bird for about 45 minutes before it flew off to join a 2nd peregrine on an electrical tower. This bird paced almost parrot-like along the I-beam flange, with slow, awkward steps and hunched back.
