This  morning, at the McKinney refuge in Stratford,  I watched as an
immature Peregrine Falcon stole a menhaden from an Osprey in flight.
After a few seconds of carrying the fish away, the peregrine dropped it into
the marsh grasses, circled over it once and moved on. Maybe the fish was too
heavy for it.  I had never seen a peregrine going for a fish before.
