    So that's what they look like! Every time I see them from our office building, they are just a fast blur flying from our building to another downtown tower where they nest. They hang out on our building during the day to perch and hunt (our office at near the top of the tower where the birds can easily perch), but it is not often that we see them just sitting still. Nice work.

    Excellent shot, Louie! Can't imagine you are "just now" getting around to it! I envy your constant photo ops (and efforts to get them!).
