Resident female and intruder female fall out of the sky, talons locked and a battle ensues. The unbanded resident pair has been battling the intruder for weeks on end. Not filmed in this clip--in the end, the intruder flies off leaving a battle scarred resident bird to tend to her wounds. Only time will tell if the resident pair can be successful in incubating the eggs and if they will hatch.

An "intruder" adult peregrine falcon from Rochester, NY has been aggressively working to take over a resident female falcon's nest site and resident adult male. Here is the female sitting on the railing to the left while the male sits on the two eggs laid by the resident male. Resident female has had several major battles with the intruder and it is not evident if she is still in the area yet.
Workers pull a 22- foot tree into the rotunda at the Union County Courthouse.
