End of Year Birds 2010

 Peregrine Falcon

Had a nice outing with Michael Atzeni this morning. The highlight was the above Peregrine attacking a kestrel at Gowrie Junction. It happened very quickly as they appeared and scooted up and down and around before disappearing. I only got one shot. It would have been good to get both birds in the frame but I was too slow.

Australian Kestrel

We found plenty of kestrels around Oakey.
