Birds of Prey

Whistling Kite are again building a nest in a tall Melaleuca across the road from our driveway entrance and we frequently see and hear them. We have also had frequent sightings of Grey Goshawk (white morph), Pacific Baza and Brown Goshawk in fact we suspect that the latter bird has been responsible for the reduction in number of our laying hens! In spite of this domestic problem we are delighted that the property is providing food for such a variety of raptors.

Earlier this week we had a first sighting of a Peregrine Falcon at Wild Wings & Swampy Things -the falcon had probably been attracted by the large number of Metallic Starling flying back and forth from their nesting tree on the hill.
