After several years of returning to the same location in Cumberland County for multiple years, this record was accepted. It has continued to reappear through at least the winter of 2012.

Prairie Falcon — Shippensburg, Cumberland County; December 1, 2005. Photo by Andrew Markel. This young bird was seen four times from December 1st through the 8th. Note the head markings and overall brownish coloration. As always with falcons found well out of their traditional range, the question of origin comes into play.
