Today I was at Klineline park in Salmon Creek (Vancouver, WA) when I saw the partially eaten carcass of a cormorant on the shore of the main pond. It seemed like a falcon kill, except I didn't think that they hunted such large birds. About half an hour later, while walking toward the smaller pond, I spotted a juvenile Peregrine Falcon under a tree, eating something on the lawn. I took some ID shots, not the greatest because of very low light conditions, so they aren't going on Flickr. I went back later and saw that the bird it had been eating was a duck, probably an American Wigeon. Other birds noted at the park were American Coots, American Wigeons, a single male Common Goldeneye, a single male Common Merganser, a California gull, two Double-crested Cormorants, three Cackling Geese, a Belted Kingfisher, several Mallards, a Spotted Towhee and two California Scrub Jays.
