I was walking across Van Ness near City Hall at 6:40 this morning. A
Peregrine gripping a dead bird flew about 30 ft above my head,
flapping hard with the load, and closely followed by a squawking
Western Gull. I stopped mid-crosswalk to gape. I'm pretty sure the
dead bird was a pigeon and not another Gull, couldn't quite be sure
with the light behind them. Glad the Peregrines are thriving.
