Tom Eckles looked out his window in Gualala and he saw this beautiful Peregrine Falcon in the distance.
A good place to see a Peregrine is at Gualala Point Regional Park. Peregrine Falcons have been seen there looking for a meal of a tasty Duck. To hear the call of a Peregrine, here is a link to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology: https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Peregrine_Falcon/sounds
