Neil Solomon – “The Peregrine Falcons of Torrey Pines – A Tale of Two Nests in 2023”
September 28 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Please join us for our interesting monthly program and refreshments. There is a social period beginning at 6:30 pm with the meeting and program getting under way promptly at 7:00 pm.
Peregrine Falcons have been nesting in the wind-sculptured caves high above Torrey Pines State Beach for decades. Every year a pair of Peregrines have raised their chicks, taught them to fly and hunt, and sent them on their way into the world. In 2023, as the young of this pair were fledgling, a second pair of Peregrines established their nest and produced their young, less than one mile south of the first pair. The nesting behavior of the second pair was similar, but different in many ways. Here is the photographic story of the two nests.
This is Neil’s 14th PAS Presentation. Neil has been photographing birds for 20+ years. His travels in search of birds to photograph, have taken him from Patagonia and the Falklands in the South, to Alaska and Arctic Norway in the North, and many locations between. His favorite shooting locations are probably the far North and Central/South America. The last few years he has been concentrating on photographing birds in flight. You can see his images on his website www.nsolomonphoto.com
Mark your calendars. Don’t miss this interesting presentation!
