That's a peregrine falcon, btw. They've adapted quite well to urban/suburban environments.

Incredible shot. I am so impressed that the falcon stayed long enough for you to get the camera set up and take the shot. Has it come back since then?

Wow! Very cool. I've seen them grabbing pigeons for lunch, but never up close like this.

What a beautiful bird and photo. You were really lucky to have him there for that time and to be able to get the photo.
