Griffith Avenue:  Peregrine Falcon appears to be visiting the 10 acre field off Griffith Ave. I've seen it on three separate occasions now since new year. First time we saw it was about three weeks ago sitting on a branch behind the house here eating what looked like a mouse. It stayed around for over half an hour flying out over the field and coming back to perch on the trees behind the house. It was eventually persuaded to move on by a trio of crows who harrassed it as it perched. Saw it again about 10 days ago swooping low over the field and again this morning 'patrolling' the field from a tree down at the park on Walnut Ave.CC
