My Column: Peregrines vs. Ravens

Karl Soehnlein Raven Eage
Last fall, while counting raptors at State Line Lookout in Alpine, several of us birders noticed a nasty interaction between the local Common Ravens and Peregrine Falcons.

I remembered back in the Meadowlands when Peregrine evicted Ravens from their nest site at Laurel Hill. What was going on?

I decided to find out and write a column about it in The Record's Better Living Section today.

Failing to acquire a photo of Ravens and Peregrines squabbling at State Line, I settled for the next best thing -- this shot by Karl Soehnlein of A raven and a young bald eagle squabbling above the Palisades near the Lookout. (Thanks, Karl!)
