Last Friday my walking companion and I visited the downtown Binghamton Farmers Market and headed towards Chenango Street. On our way past the historic Broome County Courthouse we saw two women, one with binoculars and one holding a camera with a telephoto lens. They were intent on the nearby Press Building.
It could only be one thing.
Yes. It was the Peregrine Falcons!
We are lucky enough to have had a pair of Peregrines nesting in downtown Binghamton, on top of the Security Mutual building, for several years. Today, one fledgling and one parent were out. I was able to see both of them once the women pointed them out, without binoculars. One was perched on a window of the Press Building, one on a corner of the Security Mutual building.
It was a happy moment in downtown Binghamton.
