Adult Gyrfalcon photographed Fort Pierre National Grassland
January 29, 2010
My fourth Gyrfalcon of this winter season.

I believe this is the same gyrfalcon that has wintered in this area for several years now. Here is a link to photos from last year, taken in almost the same area (and in much better light):


I first saw her about 2 miles east of Sheriff Dam. Later I saw her again near Richland Dam.

No bands
