Anybody know if there are local falcons nesting in Boston? I'm reasonably sure the birds what buzzed me last week out on the Fort Point Channel were of the falcony ilk, possibly Peregrines. Two of 'em there were, swooping out over the water. One swooped so close to me that I could hear the fwoosh as it went by. The serious detail I noticed was that it had bright yellow talons.

Then again, I've seen seagulls riding the thermals high up above the place, but that ding-dang swoopy birdo certainly warn't no seagull.
