The two pair of Peregrine's who nested in southern Mendocino county returned to the same spots again this year. In the first photo is the nest with two chicks. Craig Tooley went out with his long lens to get these photos and a short video.
And Margaret Lindgren photographed the other nest with her cell phone camera. The nest has FOUR chicks.
Thanks to Craig and Margaret for allowing me to share their photos and video with you here. To see much more of Craig's nature photography, here is his website: www.ruffimage.com

We got 1.02 inches of rain from the late season storm early yesterday. Everything got a nice soaking!
