"The Wanderer"-peregrine falcon -original pastel painting

 View this portrait's work in progress here!

  Peregrines will always hold a special place in my heart ever since I had the opportunity to work with them many years ago. In 1990, I  assisted "Project Peregrine Sudbury" which aimed at re-introducing the endangered falcon to the Sudbury basin area and help establish a local breeding population.  Some of my tasks included feeding and monitoring nine peregrine chicks until they fledged. 

The name peregrine, is derived from Latin (Peregrinus), meaning "one from abroad", that is, a foreigner, traveller, or pilgrim/wanderer, hence the title: "The Wanderer".

Once an endangered species in Ontario, the peregrine is now considered threatened.
