Birds With Masks | Outside My Window

Two years ago my Halloween article, Birds With Masks, listed five masked birds but neglected an important one. Today I’m making up for it.

Here are five photos of peregrine falcons, taken in Ohio by Chad+Chris Saladin, that show off the birds’ malar stripes.

Would you say these peregrines are wearing masks?
