PREY on Ledge-NOT a Dead Peregrine!

I am not sure when this dead bird first appeared on the ledge but it sure has attracted a lot of attention from fans worried that one of the falcons met its demise.  Our inbox is loaded with many emails from concerned watchers.  Do not fear, this dead bird is simply a prey item that was left in view of the ledge camera! 

Unfortunately, I haven't been able to ascertain what species the prey is, but I can tell by the feet what it is not.  It would be very helpful if one of the falcons would drag it out in front of the camera more and we can catch a glimpse of the upper body and head.  We'll see...!!!
