Gyrfalcon Finally

After 5 tries to see the rare Gyrfalcon at San Jacinto Wildlife Area in Riverside Co. in California; I finally was able to observe and photograph the elusive Falcon. This location is the farthest south record in CA.  The bird was first spotted and photographed by Mark Chappell back in early Feb. Today the Falcon was flying between power line poles and searching for Coots for Breakfast ( with no luck )while I was there. The area is the road that runs along the east end of the Duck Club towards Mystic Lake and about a mile south of the Porta Potty at the parking lot (Walker Parking Lot)
