And the bush has friends to meet him, and their kindly voices greet him, In the murmur of the breezes and the river on its bars,
And he sees the vision splendid of the sunlit plains extended, And at night the wonderous glory of the everlasting stars.

Banjo Paterson (1889)

Peregrine Falcon Video

Here's a video taken in Kalamunda National Park of some of the birds found there. It's a video I put together of a local Peregrine Falcon that's been hunting in the area. He watches Varied Sitella, Common Bronzewing, Ringneck Parrots and a Black-faced Cuckoo-shrike, deciding on what to have for lunch.

great video...the quality is wonderful. There is a Peregrine web cam here in Boise, Idaho...I was just watching it and they have 3 eggs they are sitting on...its fantastic to sign on and watch them every once in awhile. We have many Prairie Falcons here especially along the gorge of the Snake River in the basalt cliffs

Very nice video.

Strange to see a Peregrine perching in a tree, here they're usually on cliffs or high rise buildings........
