>From Steve & Charla Spector:
20 Oct 11, Silver Sands SP -- off of boardwalk from parking lot to beach around 
5:00 PM -- in extremely windy conditions, a large juvenile dark-headed Peregrine 
Falcon with thick dark streaking underneath and a narrow band of white at the 
tail tip attacked a Great Egret in spartina; Egret emitted massive squawk at 
semi-hovering falcon and stretched out neck; Peregrine circled away and returned 
to attack; Egret gave off loud growl/roar; Peregrine zoomed away.
