TC, I saw that too this morning when he turned around.  I believe RRP did post that it was Newman on their Facebook page.

Via RRP...

Peregrine Falcons Newman and Nova are back at Great Spirit Bluff
On February 24th we saw & heard male Newman reclaiming his territory and favorite spots protecting his No Fly Zone from local eagles turkey vultures and owls. Mate Nova joined him on February 25th
What about the owls
We have been testing audio and visual owl deterrents by shining a light at favorite perching spots and broadcasting the sound of barking dogs Our deterrents appear to have been successful since we havent seen owls since late January  We are still considering several size exclusion designs for the front of the nest box We will see if they are necessary we would rather not change a very successful design if we can keep the owls away We are looking forward to the new year
