Oh man. I was walking in the woods, thinking about how lucky I was to be in nature 10 minutes from my door, when I heard some kind of bird screeching above me. Like nothing I've heard in the river valley before. I looked up to try and figure out what it was and saw some kind of huge bird moving its wings in a nest. Then I spotted two others. From what I could see, I think they're young peregrine falcons. Peregrine falcons! The bird that came this close to going extinct on the Prairies a few decades ago is now nesting 20 minutes from my house like it ain't no thing. It brought tears to my eyes. I f'ing love nature. #yeg #yegrivervalley #instagramyeg #inspiredbynature #nature #peregrinefalcon
