Peregrine falcons spotted north of Racine

A RacinePost reader sent in these pictures of parent and child peregrine falcons north of Racine in, as the reader wrote, "an undisclosed location, with Vice President Cheney."

The photographer wrote: I am guessing, based on feathers, that the two “Eating” pictures (they were of the same bird) are the adult, and that “Immature” (below) is a young bird that is learning to eat from its mother.
